Hi all,

this song was inspired by some brass samples by www.NewYorkBrass.com which can be used for free.
I used the samples nyb_40.mp3, nyb_41.mp3, nyb_42.mp3 and nyb_46.mp3.

RealTracks are:
RealDrums-BossaBrushes
RT464_ Bass, Acoustic, Bossa Ev
RT708_ Guitar, Nylon-Elec, Rhythm Bossa Ev
RT510_Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev
RT475_ Sax, Alto, Bossa Ev
RT1167 Gitarre, Elektro, Solist RockBallade Brent Ev Halftime
The lead guitar was tailored from 5 different generations.

It is so nice to hear the different flavors of music on the site. The brass was very cool. But the guitar with distortion was a very neat touch

Hi Guenter,

As always, your music inspires me and amazes me in equal quantities. This is outstanding.

Your ability to home in on the essence of a theme and then to develop that theme through the surgical manipulation of audio is incredible. To my way of thinking, you're the definition of 'master-craftsman meets master-musician meets outstanding audio engineer'.

All the best,
Noel

Quite fantastic

I really enjoyed some of the discordant blends of brass especially in the intro. As usual, a very high standard.

Guenter,

Excellent. Beautifully put together. I downloaded all the samples when they were mentioned some time ago - and I've listened to them all a few times - thinking it would be cool to be able to do something with them... I would not know where to begin - obviously NOT a problem for you! You are a very clever man and a talented musician!

Did you use the samples in their original tempo? And if not... how did you figure out the tempo - and how did you stretch them (if you did)?

Even getting them in proper alignment has to be some real work..

(don't you love when you hear the musician talking in the background of those samples?)

BRAVO. A wonderful piece. As always.

First thanks a lot for your nice comments.

Yes, on most of them I used the original tempo. I get the tempo with the metronome. One sample needed adjustment. My daw is reaper, and there it is easy to change the play rate by typing in e.g. 1.2 for faster or 0.98 for slower.
No magic, just fun experimenting.

Guenter,

See my comment at your SoundCloud page. Amazing horn sounds and arrangement. Very cool my friend. I don't think I've heard anything like this from you before. Impressive.

Most excellent!! You set a very high bar with sophistication, creativity and production. Even though your productions are always different there is a consistency of pro studio mixing that runs through all of them. This one has "movie them" all over it to my ears and although it appears to be a bit of a departure from many of your themes it works very well. We both really enjoyed it. Sweet!
