samples of our work

In general we cannot post our work because it is copyrighted by the Artist, and we take that very seriously, as we do our confidentiality agreement.

As a matter of fact, when you are finished recording at Zen Duder, you get a very official looking signed and witnessed sheet of paper that states some metrics about the work we did for you, that this is your work, the dates that it was recorded, where it was recorded, and that you are the sole owner of the copyright to this work. Its a nice thing to have and serves as proof that this is your 100% original work should you ever need that for an upload or contract or whatever.

We have no rights to your work, but we do offer free encrypted professional archival services for it which can come in very handy. For example, say you want to re-mix the work or work on it some more later on.

That said….

Analog Chill has been kind enough to give us permission to upload copyright free all of the tracks we recorded for them.

This was very creative work that involved a lot of effects, and was very challenging and fun in post production. It shows what we are capable of at Zen Duder. Recording a straight session is a walk in the park compared to some of the things we did in this work. “Pictures in Sound” was the idea we were going for with Analog Chill.

These are low quality Mp3 format, but give them a chance with a good pair of headphones and a decent amplifier. Feel free to download and share them if you like.

things to listen for

Starship Cruzin became and probably still is very popular at several internet streaming radio stations. It feattures tempo sync’ed echo and some “pressure release” techniques that give the track a very relaxed downtempo feel which is just what Analog Chill was going for and they were very pleased with our work on this one.

Sunday Afternoon has a very nice guitar solo using our house 1967 Blackface Fender Super Reverb, plus our own bird samples

RadioIsotope Decay features the “Michelle scream” which has been downloaded 50,000+ times as well as a tibetian monk, a digerdoo, panning and pitch effects, and the french subway system complete with Zen Duder generated doppler effects.The Pink Floyd “careful with that ax eugune” solo was done by a teenager.

Starchild features Michelle sounding very nice on vocals, and with symphonic chorus and vocoding effects. If you are nice to Michelle and if you would like or have a need for it, she may do backup vocals for free and copyright free because she just loves to sing.

If you have a good subwoofer “taking life” features a blackhawk helicopter and some good guitar licks using our house Mesa Boogie Studio 22+

the Baldwin Brothers of “Dream Girl” fame loved the tempo synced synth windups and winddowns we did for Analog Chill on Uranium Five. That was all done in post production.

“Dangerous” again features Michelle on vocals singing through our Digitech Studio Vocalist patched to the Novation X station for vocoding so an Analog Chill member played the notes as Michelle sang them. Our Studio Vocalist is capable of some amazing vocal effects from very subtle to very extreme. We have never had an artist use Barry White mode yet.

“daddy” features a Coney island wooden roller coaster

The Red Baron features a real WWII Biplane which morphs into a synthisizer along with some other fairly advanced effects and techniques in order to achieve a feeling of flight. The synth work was done using our Novation X Station.
