Breaking It Down | Clinton Cerejo | Ep.2 Mehram


Hey guys ! What’s up? How’s it going? That is Clinton And welcome to a different episode of Breaking it Down

I do know its been a extremely very long time for the reason that final Breaking it Down However we've been actually busy in 2019 with an entire bunch of initiatives One them is a mammoth movie referred to as 'Badla Directed by Sujoy Ghosh And after that we did one other actually attention-grabbing movie referred to as Part 375 On the non movie entrance we’ve been busy Working very very intently with Mr AR Rahman and QYUKI On NEXA producing and collaborating with some unimaginable Indie artists from everywhere in the nation However coming to what I wish to speak about in the present day… A monitor that occurs to be considered one of my private favourites

It was from the film Kahaani 2 and was sung by the unimaginable Arijit Singh and its referred to as ‘Mehram’ So with out additional ado, lets dive proper in and test it out So right here’s my last manufacturing session and Ive simply grouped the whole lot into twelve stacks to make it simple so that you can perceive Theres principally a piano stack A swell and reversed piano stack …i’ll come to that later There’s a Taylor or acoustic guitar stack There's a heat pad We even have a bass Then there's a drum stack a Tele bridge stack (tele is clearly a telecaster, for the inexperienced persons that could be watching this video)

That is PRS mutes There’s a PRS chords stack (PRS is one other electrical guitar) A Les Paul energy chord stack A Les Paul lead stack (I’m not even going to say what a Les Paul is I’m certain in case you truly clicked on this video what a Les Paul is) and final however not least, a String stack

so what I wanna begin with truly is the primary instrument I put down It was a easy pop chord development and it’s on acoustic piano It’s part of the piano stack I’m gonna solo it for you That is the way it sounds Afterward I’ve performed a unique sample when it will get to the refrain which is a little bit busier

So its sort of acquired this nearly Coldplay-esque piano motion and the drums mirror that as nicely I wished it to have that sort of movement as a rock music To construct the momentum, I made a decision do a double monitor of acoustic guitars This can be a 700 collection Taylor Completely nice guitar for rhythm and for reducing by way of a dense combine

So a really busy, very rhythmic, very pressing guitar half which is just about the spine of the music proper by way of I’ve acquired a heat pad that’s filling up the mid vary Simply stating the chords that’s all it’s doing actually I’ve additionally acquired a programmed bass Trendy 4-string from Spectrasonics Trillian

Really its simply an previous Trilogy patch that’s going by way of a logic bass amp, which, as you possibly can see, is simply giving it a little bit achieve and a little bit extra crunch and saturation The bass begins off excessive after which begins transferring downwards and actually varieties the low finish, the the mattress on which the entire tracks sits It take some time to get to that low E however as soon as that low E truly come it actually begins feeling very gratifying i like to begin generally with a excessive opening line on the bass very like a bass participant would after which slowly work my means all the way down to the tonic Transferring on, that is my drum stack

It begins with simply hats A quite simple sample When the kick and snare are available, that is what they’re taking part in okay in order that the verse Within the refrain I made a decision to vary it up a bit

We now have a decide up after which we transfer to a barely completely different sample within the refrain It’s simply constructing on the primary sample So the drums within the music hold alternating from one sample to the subsequent Now we come to the electrical guitars This primary layer is double tracked open chord voicings

I used a PRS straight into this Avalon proper right here More often than not I simply mic my amps and file that output again into Logic However this time i selected to make use of TH2 which is a extremely cool guitar amp simulator and that is what it feels like So you possibly can hear that there’s a little bit refrain impact and there's additionally some distortion, some crunch on the guitars as nicely i even have a muted guitar layer which supplies me some movement once more the TH2 with just a bit little bit of inside Logic delay and can also be being compressed with a Tubetech compressor and a few EQ

That’s the Abbey Highway Brilliance Pack So after I play these two elements collectively, one's giving it a little bit little bit of groove and the opposite is giving it fullness Once we come to refrain I wished the refrain to essentially open out large so I recorded a Les Paul Open chords simply double tracked which is a a lot heavier sound And that acts as a heavy layer over the PRS chords

I'm gonna solo the Les Paul chords for you Now we’re on the chorusThere is one other guitar half which i ought to point out at this level which is driving these chords ahead This monitor beneath is only a decide up line to get into the only word lead So once we play all these guitar half collectively, it feels like this

Transferring on to the strings, one of many options or one of many highlights of the music was the string association which many individuals actually appreciated Now, how I do my string programming is I are likely to have loads of automation on my strings not simply quantity automation but in addition if put the amount automation off, there’s loads of modulation which i'm sort of utilizing to emulate the bowing motion of the string participant There’s simply three string elements we now have first violins second violins and violas so the primary and the second violins are just about taking part in the identical factor nearly until the top of the music its solely on the final refrain that they really break up up and it turns into three elements For a lot of the music we now have the primary violin and the second violin which can be taking part in the identical factor and we now have a viola that taking part in one thing completely different

i'm simply gonna solo a little bit little bit of the strings for you so you possibly can hear what it feels like by itself So, at this level, you'll hear the strings dividing into three elements now The strings are a really integral a part of what makes this music actually sound lush particularly in the direction of the top okay i wanna now speak about Arijits vocals and this simply illustrates what a wonderful singer he’s Arijit brings a lot pure dynamics to his tracks that there's not a lot that i’ve on his vocal therapy in any respect

I’ve only a primary waves LA2A which is then going to a bus with a UAD Fairchild on it a little bit little bit of logic delay We did add a little bit of de-essing and stuff on the combine stage however primary manufacturing session is simply this so what i'm gonna do now could be i'm gonna present you simply his dry vocal take because it was recorded It’s simple to see what a loopy vocal efficiency that is wow That’s simply sensible

I simply love that vocal take simply as it’s, simply fully dry Simply sounds superb and there's some a lot emotion in there okay i'm now gonna discuss concerning the Backing vocals quite simple therapy the BV's are just about simply Bianca and myself behind one mic We’ve simply completed 4 monitor of the lead vocal

Then there's a low octave which is that this That simply me singing the low octave Then we now have a few harmonies I'm gonna play you one pair of concord tracks There's one more concord

Yeah, so once we play all these vocal harmonies collectively, it feels like this So there's one very very attention-grabbing component that’s creating loads of fullness that i that wanna speak about now I stated that I’ll come again to this reverse piano monitor proper? In order that reverse piano monitor is basically only a piano chord that been reversed which I’ve looped now in case you discover there’s just one chord It’s simply E main Now I’ve rolled off all of the lows on this chord

So the fantastic thing about it’s, in case you play the bass underneath it, whereas this is happening, its very simple to see that the bass is making it really feel just like the chords of the reverse piano are changingas nicely Have you learnt what i imply? It’s simply that one E main within the reverse piano however if you play it with the bass it creates a stunning color It looks like its going by way of all these chord adjustments however nothing’s occurring truly Simply the bass notes are altering You’ll be able to do this along with your music as nicely

Don't use the identical inversion with each instrument that you just layer on each monitor So in case you're taking part in an E main with the piano and let’s say the subsequent chord is a C#minor Strive holding the E main on the piano for the subsequent chord and simply let the bass transfer all the way down to C# so what you find yourself getting is a pleasant C#minor seventh color Then on a 3rd monitor you may perhaps layer a pad taking part in a G#minor on the second chord which now makes the resultant chord a C#minor ninth, when performed with the piano and the bass So if you try to create completely different colors with a mixtures of sounds, that offers you're music a a lot wider, broader sound scape, reasonably than the whole lot taking part in the identical inversion or the identical chord

So yeah, that just about it I’ve gone by way of all twelve stacks with you Let’s put all of it collectively and listen to what it feels like Allright guys, that was Mehram I hope you loved that And I hope you retain testing all of the episodes of Breaking it down that we’re gonna launch im gonna try to do that extra typically

So if there's one factor I would like you are taking again from the episode it’s the truth that it is best to resolve when your producing one or two components that may be the hero of the music and construct you're entire music round {that a} traditional living proof was when i used to be recording this music, I made a decision to file reside drums The truth is, I labored with a extremely superb drummer, a global drummer, however when the tracks lastly got here in, I felt that the music was truly now turning into concerning the drums, and the soul of the music was sort of getting misplaced So it was a really exhausting choice, some folks would possibly hate for this however i truly took the choice to go together with the programmed drums and never the reside drums, however i feel that if you're working in your music, you must realise, there’s one singular emotion that you have to talk And if there's any component that’s not helping you in speaking that emotion, it has to go it doesn't matter if u recorded the music it doesn't matter in case you spent the cash you have to just be sure you have one or two components that may be the hero of your music and construct your entire music round that
