    Default Yes! Finally!

    I found a voice!
    As a few of you recall, I asked if anyone could put on vocals on a version of Amazed I did, finally someoe did.

    Here is Amazed with vocals: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...%20coverv2.wav

    So what do the hardcore Offspring fans think? This is not done by a band, just a test project.

    I like it, you found a good vocalist. Guitars don't come off as strong as the original, but it still sounds accurate.

    What an anti-climax when the guitars came after the heavy drums in the beginning. The guitars could have been louder. The vocals are all right. It is not Dexter, but he can sing. Well done!

    I have to agree regarding the guitars, they sound a bit dead and dont fit the song to well. Thanks for pointing that out.
    I might record the guitars again and work the mic placement some more.
    It will never be the same sound, I guess The Offspring dont settle for anything less than top tube amps and would not look twice at my Kustom 200 HD transistor amp.

    It's a great cover, I like it. So it doesn't sound like the original production, that probably cost a few hundred grand. If it's all done by homerecording, I'd consider it pretty impressing.

    Thank you!
    Here is the latest version of it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3t516sj9hc...ed%20v%206.mp3
    The guitars are still missing something in the mids so im going to record the guitars again and it will hopefully sound better then.

    Dammit, the vocals are mental! This is just really great, man, very good job! The best thing about it is that the singer is really owning the song, not copying Dex's style, nor the phrasing. This is going to soud so cheesy, but it's kind of an inspiration, man. I hope you record more covers, even from other bands (make sure to collaborate with this dude again).

    Thanks! Yeah I got that dude on speed dial now haha.
    I'm going to do a few more covers, as they are awesome at helping me getting to know my studio gear better.
    Will probably do another Offspring song, not decided what song yet but leaning a bit against Elders at the moment.
    First up is Green Day - Hitchin a ride when im setting up the drums again later next week.
