A Mighty Fortress/ Angels We Have Heard on High (Amy Grant)
« on: December 27, 2020, 02:42:22 PM »
How about one more Christmas song before the 2020 Christmas Season is completely over?  This is my version of Amy Grant's fantastic recording that combines an orchestral recording of "A Mighty Fortress" and an upbeat version of "Angels We Have Heard on High".  Except for an outboard reverb unit, I did this one completely on the PSR-E433 -- I did not use any of my other keyboards or bass pedals.  The style was used exclusively for the drums.

I recorded it to Audacity, and I cheated a little.  Since it was taking me a while to get a recording that I was happy with, and I didn't want it to take until next Christmas to get this done, I copied the second verse of one recording and replaced the second verse in the main recording with the copied clip, using Audacity's fade in and fade out features to blend the two recordings.  But otherwise, this recording is completely live, with no overdubbing or multi-tracking other than that minor edit.  Other than that, I only used Audacity to adjust levels, equalization, and compression.

I think I may have submitted a version of this song several years ago, but this is a brand new recording.  In fact, if I did submit a version previously, I believe it was before I discovered that my computer was set to record everything in mono and that everything I had been recording to that point was in mono.  This recording is in stereo!

The song starts out with the slow, orchestral version of "A Mighty Fortress", and then the more upbeat "Angels We Have Heard on High" starts at around 1:50.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!
