High Line remastered

Hello my friends.

After months of silence about my music…
I’m back with a new version of my album High Line Park.

 

This album was originally released in 2014. But at that time, I wasn’t very happy with the sound.

For some reasons I decided in 2016 to move on from Logic Pro and make a fresh start on a digital audio workstation learned in school : Pro Tools.

It was really disturbing in the beginning after years spent on Logic Pro.

But rediscover Pro Tools was refreshing and very educational.
I have spent hours and hours on mixing tutorials, videos and in the reading of the Pro Tools manual.

I started to be very attracted to the mixing techniques rather than create new tracks. I bought some Waves and Slate Digital plug ins, and I immediately began to use all these virtual EQs, Compressors, and SSL consoles emulations to produce my own ’In The Box’ mix.
Like if I had a professional console and studio in my possession, at least in “my head” or rather in my computer.

To try these new tools I began with tracks that I had already made. So, one thing leading to another, I did a new mix on every track of my previous album : High Line Park.

I didn’t touch on the composition, except the track High Line who deserved new beats programmation. I shortened some tracks and changed the original playlist order.

It results from it a better, louder and clearer mix and mastering for a more homogeneous album.
This is my definitive edition of this one, I believe.
I hope my goal is reached and that you will appreciate the record as I always wanted it to be.

Happy listening and relaxing,

Jonathan

Trance 90s

Discogs avec des liens youtube c’est un peu comme fouiller dans un vieux bac à vinyl.

Cela me remémore mes heures passer à Techno Import en plein mois d’août, à faire ma sélection, sortir les vinyls des bacs, prendre ma pile et m’installer à une platine. Ensuite allumer ma clope (au moins ça c’est fini…) et enfin écouter ma sélection.

Vingts après c’est un peu magique de retrouver des vieux morceaux grâce à internet et pourquoi pas les commander en 2,3 clics… Cela dit, Il faudrait que je refasse un tour à Paname un de ces quatre.
