Chaising Cars (cover)

This song is not in a battle

This is for a 1 MIN for a schoolproject. I did all the recording, instruments, voices, mixing, and editing myself. I used Mixcraft, Lightwork and Windows Live Movie Maker, and just one SHURE SM58.
See below if you want to see the video!

Hope you like it, tell me what you think!

Nice vox, although  I think it would sound better is you reduced the reverb.
The bass is killing the dynamics, how was it recorded, sounds like a bass synth?.
The video is pretty good
Perhaps try and Eq the drums, I know it's hard with one mic.

Would have liked to have heard the whole song.

Yeah the I did the bass with FL, because I don't have a Bass, and about the drums, it's indeed hard to get a good drum sound with one mic.

First I wanna say that I like ya vox and the polyphonic arrangemant youve created here. Really Nice singing.   Also the instrumental parts are played well. Hehe, bass-player-simulation on a black Strat`.
About reverb Im with Denis. Its a lil too much, but no problem to reduce.
Totally Id say : for a "1-mic-recording" it is a decent result which needs only small tweaks.

The vid is very well done. If I could work with my "movie maker" Id be glad. Im just failing when I try inserting
one of the effects. When I try to watch the effect the movie doesnt run.      

Im sure this school project will bring you full marks`.

This is totally relaxing and awesome!!  I love hearing recordings done with 1 mic for each track.  Reminds me of myself and my earlier recordings!

Great cover and here's to hoping you get a great mark!
