All the best,

Thanks Noel. I appreciate your kind and encouraging words.
Cheers,

Nice melding of RT & Midi mate.

Thanks for your honesty rayc.
On reflection, you might be right about the "crowded" middle eight.
You know what it's like: you write something you really like and you just can't let go of it or leave it out!
But as we all know, in most cases, "less is more".

Steve, I have great respect for your work and really appreciate your encouraging comments.
BTW, Yesterday I stumbled across your "Mixing Tips" post in the "Post Your Own Tips and Tricks" PG Music forum.
I know it was posted a few years ago but it contains so many great tips and ideas for mixing/mastering.
Thanks for sharing.
Mike

Nicely done - I thoroughly enjoyed my listen smile A lot of nice ebb and flows here, and a concise and clean mix job too. Listening in headphones - the panning was really well done and made it appear to have lots of intricacies to my ears.

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice mood, I like the melancholy in melody and chording. Brings feelings of a 70's movie soundtrack. Lots of things happening all the time in the arrangement, nice breaks, instruments are brought cleverly in and out.

This is so good in so many ways that I am lost for words! So I will take your suggestion:

1-comments - this is an outstanding piece of music. Plus the mix is perfect!

2-criticism - Ain't no criticism from me.

3-suggestions - please do more like this

You should be extra proud of this one!
