I do a Christmas song every year, and “Oh Holy Night” is this year’s song.
Notes: I used a Neumann TLM-49 mic through a Great River ME-1NV preamp and FMR Audio RNC 1773 compressor into Logic Pro for the main vocal, and then compressed it on the other end with Waves RComp. It ran through an old Lexicon MPX-500 for some nice Christmas-y concert hall sound. Too bad I was sick this week. Sorry about the hoarseness. I would have done thicker background vocals too.
Arrangement: As for the arrangement, I wanted to do something in 6 with a kind of modern feel. I used my favorite trashy Yamaha piano sample (terrible decays on this one!) with heavy EQ. The guitars are some quick fingered (and messy) keyboard emulations running through Omnisphere. Great sound, terrible playing. They sounded bad enough to turn down and pan way to the left. The strings are patches of my own creation. I heavily treated the sleigh bells in the chorus and added some timpani rolls for cheese.
