Frank,

Another great one. Keep it up, man! (glad you came back!)

Nice chord progression. Terrific mix - at various times each instrument caught my attention but was still "a part of the whole".

Nice job on that viola. The fingerpick guitar sounds better than I've ever heard anyone make it sound!

It's so good, I wanted the choir to be real.

Keep 'em coming!

floyd

Frank,

I'm having trouble today getting the song to play... but I did get it to play once yesterday so I'll have to review from memory.

Once againg you've done a great job of creating a very relaxing bit of music... exactly the kind I like to listen to while winding down after work.

I like the way you keep it interesting by introducing new instruments and sound textures throughout the song. You've got quite a collection of songs now and I hope you have success in marketing them.

Floyd,

Again, very generous with your compliments.
This "music" is different, obviously. Listen to a lot
of YouTube artists for this genre. One of their video's
had similar country-folk backing, so gave it a whirl.

The setups for VSTi's are outstanding in BIAB, was lucky enough to get DIM PRO.
There is light Reverb on the guitars. Did many "final's" before the balance was decent.
Sometimes the instrument mix levels tend to fight one another.
Also YA THINK maybe the outstanding RealTracks might have helped a bit...

The viola in Rapture FilmScore pak was a new purchase about 3 weeks ago.
First time auditioned was day before yesterday.

Again thank you!

Pat,

I have downloaded it several times using Firefox, and it seems to work
OK. The file is larger due to 320 Kbps.
Cool part of this music is only the Great BIAB realtracks style playing alone
sounds good.
We are so lucky to have these tools available to improve the music.
After listening to many YT artist's the changes are a necessary part of the music.

Its interesting you mention Textures.
There are several "Texture" folders with the synth's not used yet. More to learn.

Regarding Sales, am very realistic in this regards. Creating decent music
and have some folks enjoy it is the primary goal, also bit of legacy.
As mentioned in information in another posting...when a very famous rock group
only gets $5000 from millions of plays. confused crazy
Would be neat to have someone use it though.

Thanks Pat!

Hi Frank,

really relaxing listen. It's nice how you blend
the RTs with those MIDI sounds.
Thanks for sharing.

gruverider,

Different a bit, modeled style on song listened to on YT, was surprised how well their music sounded with touch of folk/country.
Thank you.

Guenter,

Want so bad to learn vocaloid, but do not want to spend time on that right not.
Its sounds in your music would be a big plus in this type of music.
RT's are such a blessing for us all to use.
Thanks.

Josie,

No, did not know that, just want decent relaxing easy to listen to music.
Glad you enjoyed it!

Man, is it every easy to apply personal imagery to that. Me? I'm watching the shadows of clouds moving through a valley. I know it was a lot of effort and I'm glad you gave us a chance to listen!

Bud & Janice,

That is a great compliment for me, imagination and its journeys.
99% of the work is fun, the last end tweaking gets harder.

My pleasure to share!

Thanks for your generous compliments.

FrankB,
Your getting a big response from the Forumites for good reason. This is beautiful! I really enjoyed it.
I'd call the genre New Age, but I'm never hung-up on labels.
Looking forward to the video.
