Beautiful Mario – felt like a SpaceMan in a Red Tesla Roadster somewhere between the Earth and the Sun!
Soft, dreamy and relaxing. Very well done – thanks for sharing!

Dan, the only stupid question is one that you do not ask.

The style Oceans - Very Slow New Age - is a BiaB MIDI style from set #61 MIDI. I have found that working in MIDI is much easier to manipulate data. Many people here are experts at using RTs but I prefer MIDI for many reasons. One main one for using MIDI for New Age is that you can slow down the tempo as slow as you want and not get any artifacts. You can also change sounds and rewrite parts with no problems. BUT and this is a big one, you have to have good MIDI sound sources. You have a good start one to start with in sforzando. If you google/bing SFZ sounds you will find a lot of them from free to a few dollars. There are others like Kontakt or Sample Tank 3 that are much better but also a lot more costly.

I hope this helps and thanx for the listening and the very nice comments.

Nice!

Thanx so much for listening. It must be nice to look out your window and see a forest! I envy you so much! I look out our house and see more houses. I cam from the country with the nearest neighbor a half a mile away and woods a few yards from the house and I miss that.

Thanks for the song man. I see stars, and it's really, really cold, but I see an orange rock, and maybe there is some food over there, but I also see fire, so I dunno.

But man, I hope we'll see one another again!!

In my Bowie voice I say

I'm glad you liked the song today
But don't feel dismissed
I'll do another, promise

Masterfully done.
That, I might find in the New Age bookstore in with
collections of meditation music. That's one of those
overlooked audiences.

Thanks for sharing smile

As Deryk observed, I'm hearing a romantic movie theme. You have a fabulous musical imagination.

Mario,

This is really great.

Seems like I have heard and commented on this before--maybe confusing it with another tune. But gorgeous man. I am using this style!

Oh wait, I see I DID and we goofed around. Never mind. I enjoyed the extra listen!!!
