Randall, Welcome to the Showcase. A nice listen - a nice snappy pace to this. I agree with Dave's advice - your guitar should be close to center since it is the "singer" here... Enjoyed. floyd

A great listen, Eric - as always. Such a sweet tone and melodic playing. The sax seems a little louder than the guitar - I'd bring it down a bit - let that guitar be the star... floyd

Thanks Joe, Mario, Scott, Deryk and Tom ! The choice of the dromedary was quite obvious for me. When you are alone, you feel like in a desert and that's a place where you can meet dromedaries. So, I've invented this travel companion. And in the desert, you need to drink ! So, it was necessary to find an oasis......Christian

Beatmaster, I did a quick goggle search for Kontakt. I have Kontakt and I have no idea what is available for SampleTank as I only have the free version of it. I have no idea what you might want to spend so I have include a couple that will work on the free Kontakt Player and some that will only work on the full version of Kontakt. Also note that there are many other guitar patches that are available for both the full version of Kontakt and/or the free Kontakt Player that range from free to ve

I've been waiting for someone to write a tribute song to a dromedary!! Please give us the back-story: what prompted these camel-thoughts? As usual, your style/production, etc. is first-class, and your ideas always interesting to me. I'm very partial to the french touch in music, so this definitely pleases! I found your choice of RT's to be totally 'transparent', meaning that the style and all the instrumental pieces totally supported your overall work without being distractive, and that is

Great results from your experiments with BIAB! I agree that the little midi phrases were attention-grabbing between verse and chorus, and you expertly used the 2 different styles--that can be distracting if not done so well as you have done! And I really liked your friends home-made string contribution, very unique sound! Vocals, production, etc. was great. And regarding your lyric idea--I hope each one of us has our own little museum, in our minds, with personal jewels, like this song, th

Ed, thanks for sharing this! Loved watching the artist-at-work video; lots of our "friendships" on this forum are without faces, so nice to 'meet' you in the video. Very nice use of BIAB to accompany your vocal and playing! Tom

Alan..I really liked how you kicked this track off, with that couple of bars of acoustic(?), before launching into the band; immediately hooked me with that! And throughout, a thoughtful selection of parts, etc.--added lots of interesting colorations and bits, caused me to listen very carefully. Blues patterns are so familiar, you can wind up just sitting back, letting it soak in (while you sip your bev)--nothing wrong with that, but taking the extra effort to choose parts, add items like the

This was hilarious! Loved the concept, and you got everything possible out of the rhyming names scheme! Use of BIAB was top-notch, and let’s hear more from you!

Hi Randall, welcome to the showcase! Nice track, and very nice melodic playing. Since you are asking for input the first thing you should do is move that hard left panned solo guitar to the center or close to it, it is the featured instrument so needs to be upfront. But great first post! Looking forward to hearing more, I love hearing guitar played like this.

Hi It sounds as if you are sending your midi thru to a synth.Hence the latency for the journey time even worse via midi mapper. Try taking the tick out of the box (Route midi thru to midi driver) This way your thru will go to your selected VST/DXI if you have a tick in (use vst/dxi synth box above . Choose your vst you need a GM one. for now just use the Coyote wave table dxi if you don’t already use a better one, Give that a try. It should not matter what synth you have set in midi out now
