A good listen, Sergio.

I think your guitar needs to come up some in the mix. It's kind of "tucked in" with everything else.

Nice tune overall, I agree with Floyd, the lead guitar could be a tad louder.

Bon Natale

Ditto.... yeah, bring the guitar up about 6 db... it's really buried in the mix.

The tune is nice.... it has a nice flow and chord progression.

Agree with the others. Sweet tune!! Guitar could come up a little. It might be interesting to play with the processing a bit too-a bit of distortion/reverb? Really nice work! Take care. Greg

Outstanding playing and arrangement.
Two good reasons to raise the gain a
bit on the guitar!

A very cool and enjoyable listen.

the playing style in these real tracks really work well with the chords you've chosen for the song. The intro was very nice.

I liked when the strings came in... and those HiQ strings sound AWESOME! Good choice!
I also heard brass near the end, but there was no mention of brass real tracks or MIDI in your list. The brass sounded very good, and now I'm curious to know what you used so I can use it too.

Sounds like you played the guitar part... so my next questions would be:

what kind of guitar?
what effects did you use?
direct connection? or mic on the amp?

The break in the middle where only the rhodes piano plays was an interesting break in the pattern. I found myself wondering if it was the ending, then your wall of sound came back for a grand finale! Innovative ending!

Thanks for posting! That was a fun and interesting listen!

Hi Pat

the guitar is a Fender Stratocaster Highway One
connected to pc by an external mixer.
For this song I used Vandal VST - clean sound
The brass vst is not in BiB.

Hello and thanks.

Yes this is excellent! Those Strats are very versatile are they not!

I agree that the guitar has to come up a bit; you have great chops why not show them off?

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
