Default Doomsday Clock (alternate vocal mix)

Whilst many of us await the Machina reissue, tr00 fans are chomping at the bit for a remastered Zeitgeist. Below is a fanmade remix of Doomsday Clock that puts Willie's vocals back down where they should be. I'm sure the more enlightened members of Netphoria will have MANY things to say about this



FWIW I think it's an improvement, but I never thought it was a bad song, jackal testicles aside

Vocals still have the wrong energy for the song, which is the main issue to me and has plagued almost all the newer songs.

From Billboard's initial "sneak peek" of Zeitgiest.

"Is everyone afraid? Has everyone changed?," Corgan sings on opener "Doomsday Clock," a big, loud rocker in the vein of "Geek U.S.A." from "Siamese Dream."

This is a "Geek U.S.A." level song people!!!

according to which idiot you ask, "Geek" isn't even near god-tier level Pumpkins, so it may just be a fair assessment!

IF THE TITLE OF THE SONG IS IN QUOTATION MARKS, THAN THE TITLE OF THE ALBUM SHOULD BE IN ITALICS. IS THIS TOO MUCH TO ASK?






fuck

I always thought this song was great. Killer riffs. Sounds better with the vocals pushed back for sure.

I saw this posted on Reddit the other day. The description had me raising my eyebrows.

Quote:
Hey everyone! This is just a little experiment I decided to try out, and had some fun with. Zeitgeist is a hidden gem of Billy and Jimmy's, with the only drawback being Billy's vocal mix on some of the songs. I figured it couldn't hurt to try and correct that.

Here is a breakdown:

I used isolation software to separate the vocals and the instruments.
I ran some much-needed compression on Billy's vocals to level them out a bit.
Added a touch of delay on the vocals to give them space.
Mixed them back in.
I used the high end (11khz and up) from the original song on top of this mix, to help correct some of the clarify issues from the audio format.

It's important to note a couple of things:

Isolation software will never be perfect in its separation.
Due to software limitations, the audio quality is lower than CD quality (I have ideas on how to work around this).
If I had some FLACs or WAVs of Zeitgeist, I could probably make this sound even cleaner.

Last but not least - please keep in mind this was just for fun, to see what it might sound like. This isn't intended to try and "replace" the original!

Let me know what you think! I personally kind of love the way it sounds, in terms of the balance. It feels a little more like Machina-era.
This is like, the worst approach to polishing a turd.

I'd like to know what software can separate vocals from the instruments in an already mixed and mastered track.

I have raw WAV files from the Big Z, but this dude is lying or something. I have used many of these so called track isolation software suites and they all suck.
