Hi there, this is the updated version of the original. Before I had an attempt to recreate a muted trumpet but don't think it worked too well, so I decided to just add a regular good 'ol trumpet.
https://www.reverbnation.com/cubanpete7/song/31659692-how-come
Style is _PJONPBA.STY (Pop Ballad Piano & Acoustic Guit)Totally modified.
MelodyCustom Synth is Synth/Plugin Loaded

RealTracks in style: ~701:Bass, Electric, PopHalfNotesSync Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 3336:Piano, Electric, Rhythm LoungeFunkJeff Ev16 080
RealTracks in song: 3331:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzyPop16thsMark Ev16 080
RealTracks in song: 1064:Trumpet, Soloist SmoothJazzBallad Ev16 065
RealTracks in song: 1078:Piano, Electric, Soloist SmoothJazzBallad dry Ev16 065
RealDrums [in style:NashvilleEven8^2-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat
Trumpet has been put thru a double equalization to try to achieve the mute sound.

Any critique and or suggestions wellcomed.

Mike B.

Backtrack is cool . Melody is cool as well. Not sure if it was my headphone but I found the trumpet pretty bright. Maybe eq’d a bit.

Hi Scott, thanks for listening. No it wasn't your headphones, it is kind of bright. I was trying to emulate a muted trumpet and resulted in what you or everybody else hears. Like I said, no too please with how it sounds, I may end up changing it unless somebody suggests a different approach.

Thanks

Mike B.

Smooth and relaxing.

I somehow agree with Scott that the trumpet sits too far out front and I'm not sure how well the mute effect is working. It may be a little harsh?

The level of the electric piano blends better with the song IMHO.

The song has a great feel to it though.

Cool tune. I like the groove but like others said, you might want to rethink or rework the muted trumpet. It's out of character with everything else.

Hi Mike ...

A really cool song ... my style for sure. But I do agree with the others about the brightness of the muted trumpet. But that EP is fantastic ... loved it a bunch!!!Looking forward to your repost! Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

We keep saying this but you are a pro at selecting RT's
and then mixing them to sound like a bunch of musicians
that have been playing together for years.

The trumpet is great and the electric piano is a nice touch.

Enjoyed it!

Like the update, Mike. Removing the mute was a good idea. The trumpet is much louder than the electric piano solos, but the whole piece has a nice groove. Good choice on the electric bass, too. I know others have used Melodyne to change some of the solo notes, but I have no experience.
