Here's the latest from my home studio. Guitar solo courtesy of RealTracks and BIAB used for several other parts as well. Hope you enjoy!

Hi Mel,

That sounded very professional to me. A well structured, thoughtfully composed, very easy to listen to instrumental.

Very nice indeed. It would be very kind of you if you can list the sounds/styles used on BIB. Thanks for posting.

Very nice arrangement and mix. Like the feel of the music.

The variations you put into the arrangements were excellent.

Agree with Mike, instrumentation is very nice to know.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Regarding the requests for BIAB styles and instrumentation, I wish I could describe specifically what I used, but because of the way I use BIAB, it's hard to retrace my steps.

I used one of the piano ballads for the basic instrumentation in the main body of the song. But I tend to mix and match individual instrument tracks from different styles. And even within individual instrument tracks, I may splice midi from different styles.

The guitar solo was from RealTracks #146, JazzFunkBreezy (Carlos Arellano). I used several VSTs, but mostly Dimension Pro. I hope that's at least a little helpful. Thanks!

Excellent work Mel. Thoughtfully composed, arranged and engineered. I really enjoyed this. Thanks.

(There's a cymbal crash at 2:08 without its accompanying kick drum beat. How's that for listening intently!)

Wow, John, that's pretty intense listening! The missing kick drum beat was intentional, of course, for creative effect. (Actually, I only wish I could hear things that well; I'd be a much better producer.) Thanks!

Hi Mel, I'm not Carlos, well...I am his clon, my name is RT # 146, a computer Band-in-a-Box RealTrack creature, I renderized myself in the real world to coming and say thank you for using me and my partners grin

Mel, I enjoy your song so much, a very nice and thoughtfully composed musical production. Touching and soulful intro driving to a nice sweet chill out atmosphere

Thanks for post and sharing.

HI Mel,

This is the first time we've had the pleasure of listening to one of your songs. Good to "meet" you!

Absolutely beautiful and fabulously arranged and mixed. Don't know what else to say that hasn't been said already. It's a wonderful piece with multiple variations that compliment rather than conflict. Nicely done!

Thoroughly enjoyed that piece Mel. The bass sounds real good to me and I wish I could get the drums to sound like that also. Very tastefully done. Cheers.

I don't know how you EQ'd the drums, but those cymbals sounded crisp and clear:)
