Hear it now! MooN ShynE – The Bomb Squad feat. The Entire MsP Family

Monday, February 1st, 2010

If you have been following this blog, you’ll notice that the first ten blogs were about this particular song which took almost 2 years to create when you include all the delays (no pun intended) and the different versions and iterations.

Well here is the final song, in all its splendor and glory, [at 96k though, CD quality available from iTunes on March 1, 2010 ;o) ] and I hope you guys like it.  Considering it’s the first song where every active MsP member’s voice is on it, this is a very important song to me and one of the ones I’m most proud of. =]

Order of performers:

0. GnP’s Takewun on the prologue.

1. Cocoa
2. DiMpLeZ (MooN ShynE and ADM in the background)
3. K-Maculate
4. Less with a cameo by GNP’s Boy Gnyus yelling “Aiyyo back the f*ck up!”
5. Harmony Speaks (on the walkie-talkie, talking to MooN ShynE)
6. FoRcE oNe
7. Brian Bullion
8. ADM (with MooN ShynE)
9. Destiny Soprano
10. MooN ShynE

Some blog posts of importance to this song, for anyone wanting to ask about production techniques:

Comp’ing Destiny Soprano’s vocals

Hope you guys like it. =] Remember, to get the CD Quality version, get it on iTunes when it comes out on March 1, 2010 when “Phase 3 – L.Y.R.I.C.A.L. Without Fear” makes its debut.


Bomb Squad… again. lol Robotic voice formula

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

I went over to Proteus Studio to record DiMpLeZ part in Bomb Squad.  She plays the part of the bomb in this whole thing.  Aside from a verse she had to record as the bomb, she also had to recite times.  For example, “T-Minus 3 minutes 38 seconds.”

I couldn’t just use her actual voice because her voice is pretty soft.  So after some experimenting, I developed a decent technique to give her voice a mechanical/robotic touch.

Take the vocal recording, duplicate it twice (not necessarily recorded again twice, but you can if you want) so you have three different samples.  Give the first sample an old school radio type filter.  Run the second sample through a pitch shift transposed by -12.  Run the third sample though a pitch shift transposed by +1.  Note that when you pitch shift, do not shift the tempo so that all three will be played simultaneously.  Play them together and you will get a nice robot type sound.  Very sci-fi, I think.

Two more vocalists, and one re-recording, and this thing is OFFICIALLY DONE!  I cannot wait!
