Not music per se:

But I uploaded the sound clip of the Station Identification sound I've been working on.

I'm fairly happy with how it's turning out, but I may play with the glitch effect on the radio static a bit more, and I may tweak the vocal EQ. I tried to EQ my voice to fit better with the backing music. (old timey radio stuff)

Vocal recorded with an Audio Technica MB3k dynamic mic.

This is being done for my father-in-law's site, www.oldradioprograms.us which allows streaming and downloading of a buncha those old public domain radio shows from the early-mid 20th century. (1930-s to 1960 or 70-ish I think)

Radio static noise is courtesy of Rutger Muller, and the sound was acquired at freesound.org

Sounds pretty good. The first glitch like sound/sample you are using sounds a bit weird to me, but I like how it transitions out. A suggestion (and I don't even know if it is feasible...) would be to see if you can find any tube emulator plug ins for the vocal since all the mics from that time period were tube mics.... (I think). That might give an even more old timey sound.

Yeah, you got a point there on the tube. Bootsy's EQ has a "tube" built into it, and I can probably use it to warm the sound up a bit, and possibly get closer to that old time radio feel. Might be more convincing than using a straight-up EQ.

The radio glitch can be tweaked of course hehe. So yeah, I'll play around with it some more. :)


Edit: Okay, BootEQ didn't quite do what I wanted, but I did notice I have a tube booster effect in my vast array of plugs...so I threw that in before the EQ....much more convincing sounding I think.

I re-upped and so feel free to give the sound another listen. I also tweaked the glitch to sound more flippy and less well...glitchy heh.
