    It is FINE if you don't want to listen ... but I'd appreciate it nonetheless

    Deeper was Awesome! I Loved the low percussive piano and the bpm changes. I'll be back .. mark

    Mack the Knife (cover of Bobby Darin 1959)

    I've always Loved this song . You did a Great job with the instruments and Especially the Vocals ! It's hard for me to listen to it without seeing Steve Martin using it in his comedy skits .. I do agree brushes would be nice. The cymbals are excessive. Still .. Great Job . Enjoyed it...

    Dropped D acoustic "Funk" # Remix

    @spantini , I don't know why that happens to me "sometimes" and I can't figure out how to correct it. If I delete a link and try to replace it with a remix link , I get the "oops" message. If I leave it alone the link will work several hours (sometimes 24) hours later. ?? I replaced the link...

    input echo issue

    Increase the "pre delay" on your reverb module While you are recording. You may have to start with a long setting like 100ms and adjust it until you get it sounding right. I usually set up 2 reverbs. 1 for recording and 1 for playback. mute the one you don't need. Adjust it right and the delay...

    bandlab Sonar dropouts/glitches

    Parish , Your old Sonar (64 bit) programs should still be able to be installed on win 10. If they are installed "before" Cakewalk by Bandlab , All of your vst's instruments etc. will still be available in the new Bandlab version . It will even open up any old projects done in Sonar. The old...

    Cool song and a Great job on All the vocals. I liked the 2nd mix a little better than the first one. I thought he added reverb did push the main vocals back in the mix a little. I thought this was needed but maybe Slightly less. I think the Oooh Aaah tracks need lowering and pushed back further...

    Find the Cost of Freedom

    Thanks for posting 4 & 20. Good job on it. I've also got an aw16g that I still use on occasion. Would be nice to set it up as a controller , but can't figure it out. 2nd version of Find the cost .. was a Lot nicer. "buried" was better , maybe a little fade in on one of the voices would clean it...

    Find the Cost of Freedom

    Yeah , We went from 4 & 20/ Daylight again /Find the cost of freedom , with no stops in between songs. I'm finding I have to tune down a half step now on just about everything and some songs even further. Sure would be nice to have the same vocal range I had in earlier years. Thanks for...

    Stormy Weather #final mix and master

    After following everyone's suggestions I finally came up with a mix I liked. Gary worked some magic on it and hit the spot on one of many masters. I still haven't gotten to the bottom of how he did it. As much as I try I can't get the immersive surrounding feel he got. My masters have sounded...

    Stormy Weather #final mix and master

    @dachay2tnr , Thanks for that. I thought it sounded Very good. Sure is a Lot smoother. The bass and kick have been completely reworked since the mix that is up now. A lot more also done to the drums. Currently I'm swapping files with a friend with a huge collection of high end virtual...

    Beatles sung out of tune

    To start , I think this was a great song to cover. One "for sure" suggestion I can offer is , before you add clippers or boosters to the master track , mute your vocal track , change your master track to mono and adjust your individual track volumes while listening in mono. Loud tracks and an...
