Hi, friends !:))

I wrote this tune as I wanted to
see if I still could get a sound
out of me that in some diminutive
way would resemble surf music.

As I did it I came to realize that
my gear is not sophisticated enough
to get the smooth sound on the vocals
that I wanted so, I just have to keep
experimenting !

The Style used is BeachCar.STY, a style that
I think I have used sometimes before, but maybe not with
the same instruments all through.

The instros here are:

Bass:34, Elecpiano:6, Drums: RD:S country shuffle, Guitar: 26
VoiceOohs: GM2 54/1, Strings:51, Strings 2: 1641 Synth Pad

Recorded with mixcraft 7 pro on my laptop. Compressor and Reverb
used.Here are the links:

http://soundcloud.com/user-337827005/surf-is-on-the-rise

http://app.box.com/s/f00x4wlbh2n1hntprptmdk6xhw85bzl2

...and the lyrics:

SURF IS ON THE RISE (MUSIC AND LYRICS BY NORMAN WIBE)

Grab your board and get up on board, now let´s take my ford today
surf is on the rise, guys
let´s go where the skies meet
the sea at your feet
as the tidal waves are breaking on the bay

Won´t be long, til we surf along, throwin´our troubles away
let us find ourselves right there, where
all the waves are high enough
it´s gonna be so tough
as they wildly break upon us all the way

Can you hear, the mighty sound, taste the salty air
feel the water cooling you both high and low, from top til toe
nothing though will slow you on the go, so

Grab your board and get up on board, now let´s take my ford today
surf is on the rise, guys
let´s go where the skies meet
the sea at your feet
as the tidal waves are breaking on the bay

Can you hear, the mighty sound, taste the salty air
feel the water cooling you both high and low, from top til toe
nothing though will slow you on the go, so
nothing though will slow you on the go !


Cheers
Dani

Nice surf feel (the harmonies make it) - impressive use of layered vocals - well done.

Hey Dani,

Very entertaining! I always love up-beat and happy music. You had me tapping my feet (both of them) from start to finish.

It's two vigorous thumbs up from me! Great job smile

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 Build 3 Patch Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 users can download a new patch update here!

Summary of changes with Build 3:
Added: Always on MME added (checkbox setting).
Added: Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTI plugins, that support this, is now implemented
Added (build 2): Localization support.
Fixed: a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues.
Fixed: FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed: Improved support for the Vielklang VST instant harmonies plugin.
Fixed: Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).
Fixed: Saving to XML would result in the timing being wrong, if the song's PPQ was not 120.
Fixed: the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed: The time location of time-based VSTi plugins was being continually advanced when RB was stopped. This has been fixed so that the VSTi time location now gets set to PT's current time location when playback is not happening.
Fixed: when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed (build 2): Code 740 error could happen after installation finished when launching program.
Fixed (build 2): Installer didn't show destination directory if PT was already installed.
