First feel very guilty about not monitoring and commenting on
the showcase performers and their music.

Link below is to unique findings last night that allowed me,
along with BIAB style using John Jarvis outstanding playing
of the single super midi track style(M_BZ128P) used in this music.
The algorithms used by PG folks in coding this style is above reproach.
Also the new Addictive Keys Synth enabled by jazzmandan's posting
of Stupid deal of the day. In the link are some pro's primarily sound
and cons..... over there.

Very little FX, AK contains some amount. For this music Uprignt Yamaha U3
was miked for front stereo. Also their piano style selection does contain
some amount of default FX.

In Realband use PG Dynamics default settings with about 5db gain.
Also used Sonitus Multiband using soft compression.
The dynamics of John Jarvis playing and also the AK dynamics leave the
ballpark fairly often, and the above helped this.
Adding these FX I feel did detract a bit, but still decent.

With the chords used in the music and sounds made me feel Happy, hence
the title.

Don't mind comments one bit, they are ways to improve and learn.

This not only sounds great it sounds like it’s live. Just add a little vocal chatter and some clicking of glasses and bottles and it would put you in a small jazz blues lounge.

Great job

Mario,

First let me again comment, the John Jarvis style is really great.
The algorithms that PG coders use with the super midi tracks really
carry the midi playing thru to its maximum quality. And the
synth itself "I think" is contributing a lot, not only to the sounds,
but the dynamics of the music. The semi-accidental find on using
the style helped also.

I do thank you for the compliments.

BTW, maybe I can hire some semi-crocked humans and sample them....LOL

Nice, Frank. That very last chord needs to ring for a while...

I agree with Floyd. Nice, but the last chord is too abrupt. Need to be sustained.

Floyd, Steve,

Thank you for nice compliment. Also not much "meat" left at ending,
but tweaked it a bit... Original post above content changed.

Danny,

Appreciate the nice comment, PG folks and John Jarvis were looking
over my shoulder... and AK soft synth.

Hi Frank, nice piece. Yes the VI makes the heck of the difference, I've had that addictive keys demo for awhile and sounds amazing. I have a question though, where can I find that super midi track(M_VZ128BP) style? Sounds pretty good. Is that the actual name of it? I'm sure I have it since I have version 2013 installed but seem not to find it or I'm looking for it in the wrong place or name.
Thanks for the reply.

Mike B.

cubanpete,

Sheeezzz, now that makes 4 mistakes.... M_BZ128P
My BAD....

Not sure exactly when Super Midi's came out, but need recent version
of BIAB. You should have the style. Taking this style and adding
some more instruments would make it a "hot potatah".

Thanks for your compliments.

Guenter,

Glad you enjoyed, and wanted to share some accidental knowledge.
Hope it helps you.

cool stuff... it sounds like a live player.

I have soloed some of the piano tracks in my stuff and simply put, they sound good in the mix but not as stand alone. This does.

Yup the ending is the weak link.
