This remix of an old Argentine milonga (Tita Merelo's classic):

Made using filters for vocal and orchestral swapping. Rhythm and electronic performance through Reason and Cubase for general mixing and processing. Mastering section, T-Racks 24.

1. Removed vocals from original mix using EQ filters from Adobe Audition 2.

2. Over a Cubase session, I put vocals in sync via metronome, and my hand clicking. jaja.

3. When I had vocals in tempo I started to program loops on Reason 3 engaged with ReWire at Cubase and reusing orchestral parts extracted before.

4. I used many loops and a MIDI controller to trigger and record bass and some melodies.

5. Using NN-1 digital sampler I add a bit of vocal 'compadron' phrase that I processed with vocoder included in Reason.

6. When all patterns were ready I started mixing and adding some delays and reverbs from Waves suite. In Reason mixer and Cubase at the same time.

7. When I got mix that I like, I start to work on final mastering.

8. T-Racks 24 was my choice. I kept mixdown at 96/24 resolution before opening it in T-Racks.

9. I compressed signal at a 2:1 ratio and a short release. Adding something in 16 kHz and 80 Hz limiting and I was ready to dither.

10. I used to UV-22HR for dithering.

I hope that you enjoy it so I like, meanwhile remixed it.

Gaby from Argentina.

I post lyrics from song

Milonga 1943 Música:Francisco Canaro Letra:Ivo Pelay

Se dice de mí, se dice de mí. Se dice que soy fiera, que camino a lo malevo, que soy chueca y que me muevo con un aire compadrón, que parezco Leguisamo, mi nariz es puntiaguda, la figura no me ayuda y mi boca es un buzón.

Si chlarlo con Luis, con Pedro o con Juan, hablando de mí os hombres están. Critican si ya, la linea perdí, se fijan si voy, si vengo o si fi.

Se dicen muchas cosas, mas si el bulto no interesa, porque pierden la cabeza ocupándose de mí. Yo se que muchos me desprecian compañía y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor. Y más de uno se derrite si suspiro y se quedan si los miro resoplando como un ford.

Si fea soy, pongámosle, que de eso aun no me enteré, en el amor, yo solo sé que a más de un gil, dejé a pie.

Podrá decir, podrán hablar, y murmurar, y rebuznar, mas la fealdad que dios me dio, mucha mujer me la envidió y no diran que me engrupí porque modesta siempre fui. Yo soy así

Y ocultan de mí, ocultan que yo tengo, unos ojos soñadores, ademas otros primores que producen sensación. Si soy fiera se que, en cambio, tengo un cutis de muñeca, los que dicen que soy chueca, no me han visto en camisón. Los hombres de mí critican la voz, el modo de andar, la pinta, la tos.

Critican si ya la linea perdí, se fijan si voy, si vengo, o si fui. Se dicen muchas cosas, mas si el bulto no interesa, porque pierden la cabeza ocupandose de mí.

Yo se que hay muchos me desprecian compañía, y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor. Y más de uno se derrite si suspiro y se quedan si los miro resoplando como un ford. Si fea soy, pongamosle, que de eso aun no me enteré en el amor, yo sólo se, que a más de un gil, deje de a pie.

Podrán decir, podrán hablar, y murmurar, y rebuznar, mas la fealdad que dios me dio, mucha mujer me la envidió. Y no dirán que me engrupí porque modesta siempre fui. Yo soy así.
