Song Comparison (Auria/Garageband iOS)

Post by opoteat » Sat Mar 01, 2014 4:23 pm

Man, I'm loving Auria. Thanks guys. So lots of times in my workflow I'll put the basic tracks down in Garageband iOS and then transfer them to Auria. This last song I somehow got on a roll and recorded all tracks in GB. So I created a mixdown there sent it up to Soundcloud. Then after listening I heard lots of timing issues with harmonies, etc. So I painstakingly (there's no easy way to do it) moved the AIFF files out of GB into Auria and began a new mix with just the stems.

I first used the split tool to correct timing by moving those vocals around to match the lead vocal. I then corrected a few pops from P's and T's by splitting at the plosive and fading out and in until it went away. Then I added some sweetness with the convolution reverb and added the Microwarmer and Buscomp to the mix. After getting it to where I thought I can't stand to hear this song one more time I mixed it down and opened it in Mastering app. There I added some harmonics and air and a little more volume and sent it to Sound Cloud. So now there are two versions up there. The GB version and the Auria version. So if you're wondering if you can come close to what Auria does with GB here's proof you can't. Auria sounds so much better, even with stems recorded in GB.

Here's the Garageband version:

Here's the Auria version of the same stems:

So am I right? The Auria version is much bigger and sweeter... at least that's what I hear. Thanks for listening and for your comments good or bad.

really like the song. well sung, well played, well mixed. kudos.

there certainly is a difference between the version but perhaps some of that is down to the Auria version being noticeably louder?

am only listening on phone so cant give absolute opinion but will listen again on my home studio monitors and report back. but in any case, really like your tune, mate!
