Seashore at Dawn

A relaxing piece that has an "Einaudi" feel to it.

Uses the BACH BIAB style and EWQL instruments.

Produced in Reaper (I'm trying it out right now).

Cheers.
Mike.

Happy new year, Mike

Nice ambient tune. Very relaxing.
Piano and violin are very beautiful.
The BIAB midi style is well fitted to this tune.
I am also a big fan of EastWest instruments.
Best wishes for this year.

As floyd noted, it's a nice "mood" piece.

I'm a sucker for solo strings, and the violin is quite nice.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Mike what a great blend of instruments. Everything fitted together so seamlessly.

This could be background music at a very upmarket Spa.

Relaxing, peaceful.
