Lots of fun and the background crowd noise added an interesting flavor.

Enjoyed it very much, on a side not I played a gig yesterday where background noise was a real issue and although it all worked out I'd wish I had as slider to back it off some.

Again liked everything about the mix with one "nit" I'll pick as follows . . . man I am spoiled when it comes to real-tracks vs. midi, especially on solos.

Nice mix indeed!

Later,

Thank you all for listening. Danny, yes, I'm not sure if I am spoiled wit the RT's but I have to agree that they sound better than most midi sounds regardless of the synth or vst one use but also unfortunately, we don't have the control over the melody or solo. So, every now and then I use them to create ether one.

Later

I spent many years in Nawlins and I love Dixieland! It always lifts me up. I enjoyed listening. I do think that the drums are a bit to far up in the mix, but I thank you for sharing and reminding me of good times.

Felt like waving the baton in the parade on this one. Excellent work. The crowd noise really made this one feel alive. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mike,

fun song. Enjoyed listening.
You're right about the RTs "unfortunately, we don't have the control over the melody or solo". So I think your
choice is ok.

This is one fun song! The drums could have been a tad quieter BUT I have been on many a gig when the band was having fun the drummer got loud! So for the live effect that you were looking from my standpoint you hit the nail on the head.

Also I was not put off my your midi sounds!

Irrespective of the control over RT re melody I think this is a great tune. As mentioned the crowd noise really helps shape the vibe. I think it's a fine example of what can be done with RT's. As I'm sure others do, I cut and splice RT's for Janice's tunes to get a feel that if not strictly "melodical" at least doesn't distract from her melody. On a tune like yours where the musicians are riffing away I don't sense any loss of melody. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Bud and the other listeners, appreciate very much the time taken to listen. I use a lot of midi sounds on my melodies and solos and I personally think that depending on the synth or vst used, often times RT's and midi can blend pretty well. Of course, wind metal instruments. IE. trumpets and the like are hard to emulate.

Regards
