Black Clover is a Japanese manga series, and the song Black Catcher is its Opening 10. So, here's the story about how I made this instrumental. You'll be able to listen almost every sound of this track.

Shiro Neko

I met Shiro Neko some time ago thru Fiverr platform, where I offer some music production services, and I've been doing some tracks for her since then. She make this kind of songs covers, and anime is one of my passions, so I really enjoy doing these instrumentals.

Black Catcher

This song is the 6th track I made for Shiro Neko, so when she ask for a new track I always says Ok in the first second.

I was out of the city when I got the order to start doing the track, and I had a little keyboard.

The Process to do this Remake

As soon as I did the tempo map, I started recording the drums, but without my pad or keyboard, this time I used the grid note editor to draw the notes for kick, snare, hihat, toms and crashes, and it's not a simple drum track.

Joe Chiccarelli Drums

This is a great pack included in the EastWest ComposerCloud, and is one of the drums I use for almost everything when I need acoustic and great sound.

I love Joe Chiccarelli drums sound pack by EastWest. It have a lot to adjust every element into as I think sound better for every track.

Stingray 5 Bass

If you know this collection, you'll understand what means to play with it. Is very dynamic and deep bass, with a great body sound, so is one of my favorites to recreate rock tracks, and in many times some of Pop, or even Country.

For this video, I exported the audio from the midi session, without any processor. You can view here in light-blue the midi events for the notes, and in different colors little elements for the articulations.

Piano

I always mix piano sounds to get the result I'm looking for, but for this song, this piano was perfect. I move some parameters, of course, but just a little.

Electric Guitars

As I mention before, I wasn't in my studio, at the city, so I had only my laptop and a little keyboard, so no way to record the guitars with the real one. And EastWest have awesome electric guitars also.

After recording the Midi tracks, I exported these guitars and add some distortions, compressors and amp simulators.

Lead Guitar

And the lead guitar, very simple for this track, but needed a very good sound for it, so I decided to use the Gibson Lead Guitar from Ministry Of Rock II (EastWest again).

As mentioned before, Gibson Lead Guitar from Ministry Of Rock II are amazing!

Original VS Remake

This is a Left-Right track where in the Left Channel I put the original track, and in the Right Channel my instrumental version. You'll notice the tempo is the same, even with the tempo changes, this is because before I start recording, I create a Tempo Map based in the original track with every tempo and metric change. It helps a lot to go fast along of the song listening the recording of every instrument.

Key Changed for Shiro Neko

As in every remake, I export every instrument in different sessions, because of my laptop limits, then I get all tracks together in one session. For this song I exported 2 versions, the first version with the original key, and the second with the key changed for Shiro Neko. She ask me to do the track +2st. So You'll listend the final result in another key.

Multi-Track Demo

Here's a section of the song in a Multi-Track version, or Multi-Stems, because every track contain more than 1 track mixed in it. I hope you like it.
