Hey Guys...this was my project for today...to try and give a touch of BiaB magic to one of my instrumental tunes...this song is an instrumental version of a song I wrote for my daughter to record called "Hey There" ...I put the instrumental version on an album entitled "I've Sailed These Seas" which was instrumental tunes set over the sound of the ocean, that's why you'll hear the waves and gulls (you're not losing it...just yet) in the background...I didn't add much but I think I improved it a bit.

Hey There (instrumental)

Real Drums Nashville Even 8

I played the sax, piano and strings from patches on my Yamaha Tyros 5 keyboard

Nice 'playing' of the sax, and equally the guitar. I'm kind of jealous of keyboard players and all their sampled sounds. Yes, I have a keyboard and some nice samples but one has to actually be able to play them. I'm pretty limited on the keyboard, I'm only good for simple string and horn fills. Well, you mellowed me out really good with this one, I might be ready for a nap now. Thanks for a very nice piece.

This is really nice. The Tyrol sax is convincing. The moment the strings come in is quite lovely. The entrance of the drums is also very effective.

The key change gives the song a nice lift.

Very nice! laugh

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

TuneMonger, David and Scott...thanks guys for the thoughts and comments...I have been blessed to have some incredible keyboards and I'm finding that paired with BiaB I am beginning to see the visions I've had for the music I try to present...I'm not a great musician but these "tools" have helped me begin to build the tracks that give the music a more professional presentation and help bring it to the life I had intended for it...I'm sure that's true for everyone on this forum...thanks for listening...Dan

I totally disagree with that statement. I think you are a fabulous musician. That sax is so real sounding its scary. The strings are nice and mellow. Great arrangement.

Super chops

Loved it.

Thanks Mario...musicianship is like beauty it's in the eyes (ears) of the beholder...thanks for your gracious compliment.

If you liked the song then you should listen to AMBER'S RENDITION https://soundclick.com/r/s36h1v it was the inspiration for the piece...it is an entirely different arrangement of the same melody...if you listen you'll love it...I guarantee!

Lovely and a great display of what talent and a keyboard can produce.

The sax is remarkable and all sounds most excellent on the KRK's.

Well done!

Have a safe and happy new year.

That's a really lovely sound Dan! Those Yamaha keyboards really can pull off some convincing sounds and you really made it happen on this one! The tune just carries the listener off to another place! Great work! Thanks, Torrey

Hey Torrey...thanks for your comments...yeah the Tyros was a super arranger...I have a Genos now and it's even more convincing with its 600+ voices...I'm blessed to have these fantastic keyboards.

Move over, Kenny G -- Firesong has got this!

Beautiful sounds that are perfectly blended (the ocean did a pretty good job too). Liked the key change at 2.34. Smooth transition. All in all a fabulous start to my day. Thanks!


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile
