That intro got my attention right off. Reminds of something from the eighties may be a touch of "Split Endz". Has a real spooky feel but in a good way. Well crafted lyrics and a great mix. Morse code at the end was a nice touch. Well done to all. Rob4580

Wow, what an amazingly powerful voice. Richness, quality, perfection, dynamic range, and variation (the unexpected gospel delivery). This surely has to match the best from Whitney and others. Michael had no choice but to be absolutely impressed. What a sensational arrangement. Excellent, truly excellent !!!

Wow, this slid to page two of the forum in half a day - things are happening too fast on page one & there's a bit over blanket bombing with that too. Found this anyway. The spoons didn't actually seem to fit with the style of the melody - it seems like it forces a happy major key impression when the theme and melody are sadder. The double tracked vocals worked well. Good effort.

I really like my ACtone pedal. I don't use it ofetn and almost always DI when I do but it has THAT sound. Ancient Alesis - I have an ancient Alesisi Reverb III - it has 3 decent settings! Interesting use of the pitch pedal - is that clean & wet at equal measure? This is all about standing in the sun & seeing the Shadows.

Seems like fun though the bottom end is a bit thin. Who or what does what?

RX7 - expensive tools. The vocals sound as they're in a different room to the music - the backing vocals emphasize this too. You could try throwing a reverb across the whole mix that is close to the effect the vocal seems to sit in - it would sound quite 60s as well as suitably spacey. Very energetic song, melody & mix.

The backing seems pretty tidy though there's a lot of string noise in RealTrack 2552. The stereo image is good too. I mentioned my concerns regarding your vocal tracks so won't go into them again. Lyrically I'm confused about a song addressed to new born that is believed, generally, to have become an adult. I don't understand the many positions on trinity, monotheism etc. and this one made me even more lost.

+1 Support for usertracks died off some time ago, there was so much potential there but ?? You can make up any usertrack up you like in ReaTrak then import into Biab or RealBand. ReaTrak will give you a lot more control as well as Holds n Shots.

I'm not sure the new versions are improvements on the old. It's not like they needed fixing or anything. In the new version it feels like everything has been turned up in the mix. There's certainly a lot less dynamic range. The vocal feels like it's been hyped in the high end, which sounds more modern, but makes it a bit less integrated into the mix. On "Superstar" the final choruses lose a bit of their punch because there's less contrast with the verse, and louder hi-hat and bass

Jim, this reminds me of something I heard way back in the 80s, when Bill Maher told Jay Leno on the Tonight Shos that he had developped a new musical fusion style, combining Country and Rap. And he had named that style, too: Crap LOL Greetings, Stefan

I found another inconsistency in the on-screen Hints: Specifically, the Generate and Play hint states that if you don't want to generate, press Play instead (figure 1). But pressing Play will generate if (for reasons unknown to us) the program believes that a generation is necessary (figure 2).

Why does it make sense a great song writer can also be a good story teller? Sundance, thanks for sharing the video. With jokes like that he can give Jeff Foxworthy a run for his money. Well, maybe I'm stretching it just a little bit there.
Welcome back David, You've been missed!

That's fair and sensible. I did say to use it at your own risk. Or maybe I should better say, wait for more feedback on this. I just found it interesting.
