It's "A Joyful Noise"

I've decided that Today and Yesterday will be the next single, so, I pulled it out and started working on it today. First, I started with a rough remix, because I'd been feeling that the verses were sounding a little empty. Then I'd thought that it might be because of the mix rather than the arrangement, so I brought the keyboards a bit forward, and it seems I might have been right. I'll have to experiment with it for a while and see, but I think that made the verses more full.

Then, I went to add some string lines, so I set up the sampler for strings, and started to play with it. It's a tricky song because there's so much tonicization. It's really moving around in a lot of keys, especially in the bridge which was where I was focusing at first. But, it never really cadences in each new key, so I can't really call it a modulation, just a temporary shift. More of a tonicization.

Anyway, that makes it tricky to just throw down an improvised string line. So, I work something up, and I put it down, then I go to save it, and Cubase just dissappears. Shut off entirely, with no save, nothing. I freaked.

I go to reopen it, and thankfully the backup procedure had captured my mix efforts and the setup of the sampler, so at the very least that was working. So, I replayed/rerecorded the string line, saved it, and all was well in the world again.

I really, really, really love my computer... (imagine me gritting my teeth as I say that...)
