Zapple Pie: Earlier this year Yvalain completed a series of remixes and remasters of Zapple Pie's first 3 albums. He was able to refine the music, re-record some guitar and bass tracks and improve audio effects. The last album in the series is Atlantic Station, which contains the very first recordings made as a duo by Yvalain and Glenn. Fully satisfied with the result now. If prestigious groups like The Beatles want to improve their recordings there is no reason why amateur musicians should refrain from doing so! 😁

All 3 albums, along with the 2 others "Zapple Pie" and "The Best of Zapple Pie" plus a couple of singles are now available on every audio streaming services

Audio samples of "The Best of Zapple Pie"

The Best of Zapple Pie is a collection of songs chosen by the 3 members of the group. Every style that they ever tried is represented there, so the listener can enjoy a variety of sounds, rhythms and moods. The songs were recorded during the years 2016 thru 2021. To be inserted in the Best Of album, each song was carefully remixed (in a few cases even reworked/restructured) and remastered by Yvalain, in order to provide an homogenous sound quality. During time our software tools improved widely, especially mastering plug-ins.

As we all live in different parts of the world the whole recording process is based on internet exchanges. 1) Yvalain prepares the structure of the song and records a preliminary rhythm section that will be used as a reference by all. 2) Each member records his tracks at home and sent them to Yvalain : Glenn records his vocals, Mark records his lead guitar parts and sometimes harmonica. 3) Yvalain inserts his partners tracks into the song, he refines the rhythm section, and he often adds arrangements such as synths, percussion, orchestral parts. 4) Yvalain makes the mix (the most difficult part), shares the results with the others. When everybody is satisfied, the group can publish the song and prepare a video (which follows a bit the same process, using green screens for example to show the 3 members playing together seemingly in the same location).

Zapple Pie - Archaeology

Yvalain: "My partners know how long it takes me to really be satisfied with my mixes and with the sounds. As time runs I always find something that does not sound right to my ears. My mixing technique evolved in time, I acquired new techniques and new software tools to improve the sound. The temptation was big - and I could not resist - to reopen my old recordings and try to make them sound better. The official published discography is the result of this years-lasting process. But it's fun to display once more the original covers. Indeed when the albums were reworked, they were restructured with different track-lists and the old covers did not seem good enough. So here we go, let's open my archives 🤓"
