Pat Benatar – Love Is A Battlefield (Omnidextrous Remix)

by Ruben on April 20th, 2012 2 comments »

Pat Benatar’s hit in some sort of synthy-pop-dance remix done over the past few days. Had fun doing it, but got bored by the tune by now.

The second vocal line that starts at 3:07 is generated using the “Vocal Transformer” plugin that comes with logic. It is changed up and down using automation on the pitch and then the timing is deliberately set of a bit to make it sound more natural together with the main vocals. Although the remix feels like being slower, it’s actually 10% faster than the original. (100 bpm against 90.5 for the original.) It’s amazing how a different beat can have an effect on the perception of the tempo of a song.

    Hi,

    Just want to tell you that I absolutely love your work. I think your work on Love is a Battlefield is truly brilliant. You maintained the integrity of the original, especially not destroying the vocals, but yet completely made another new song that brought it back to life.

    There is a song by Melissa Manchaster from 1983, No One Can Love You More Than Me, which should have been a bigger hit or at least had some remixes and been a club hit. It would be so cool to see what you could do with it. Just thought I’d throw it out there.

    Kind Regards,

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Brian. At the moment I’m having a hard time to find some spare time to make music at all and furthermore I am still working on two “projects” that consume the little spare time I manage to find.

    Aside from that I am sort of slowly moving away from making dance remixes and trying to move more towards orchestral “scoring”, which is a totally new area for me, so don’t expect to much good coming from that direction any time soon.

    But I happen to have a very good long-term memory, so whenever I feel like doing some dance remix again, I’ll make sure to remember your kind reply and check out this song you mentioned.

    (PS: Moved your comment, there wasn’t supposed to be an empty “Home” page on this website.)
