Project Story:

Warm Summer Nights

The Story

How it started

Gary came to us with a unique request to re-record a cherished song of his. After acquiring the original recorded in the 70's from the studio he recruited Fox Tracks to re-produce the track and lay down drums and guitar.

Check out the original recording below

Original Tape Recording

Chart and Scratch Track

First things first, we charted the chords for Gary's original song 'Warm Summer Nights'. A really pleasant chord progression using lots of Cycle 5 Progressions.

It was important to us to preserve the energy of the original as we re-recorded the instruments, so we actually mapped the tempo of the original track.

Instrument Tracking

Using our fresh chart and scratch track with click, we recorded Drums and Acoustic Guitar to the original track.

Gary requested we record the opening melody line on guitar. We kept the drums simple and full-toned.

We always tune to the track! Check out the drum tone. We pitched the toms to the key using the Welch Tuning Systems Drum Set.

Editing & Mixing

After we recorded our instruments, we sent Gary's recording engineer stems to edit and mix along with Gary's guitar, vocals, and other instruments. 

The Outcome

Warm Summer Nights has been re-created and released into the world. Check out the final version below.

"I wish the rest of the music biz worked like Fox Tracks!! Very intuitive, and they provided the style and feel the track required."
