  1. I am a huge Genesis fan so I can't wait to hear the whole thing, that teaser sounds pretty good to me. I simply cannot imagine where you'd even start coding the drums on this and as for Mr Hackett's guitar work on this track - incredible. Good luck with it. Andy
  2. Oh Lord yeah, that ham-fisted and amateurish slide guitar - how did I miss how awful that was? Who are you kidding, you have a Midas touch on that thing and you need to know just how good this sounds. Sounds even better on a second listen.
  3. Beautifully done, absolutely stunning. Just closed my eyes and was transported to a different place. Loved it. Andy
  4. Let me contribute to your disposition - that is one sweet guitar tone and just a terrific blend of musicianship and mix all round. I love this slight jazz/ funk groove and a great ending - sharp as ever. Andy

    Talk (Coldplay Cover)

    Chris Martin has such a unique vocal style and range - not at all easy to cover and you did a damn fine job of that vocal. As for the drums, it's already been said, the original mix was definitely fuller and heavier on the choruses to my ears but these are fine details. Doesn't detract from a really good cover - well done. Andy
  6. Beautiful rendition - I can only dream of chops like this on keys but I am trying to improve - it's a long old road... Thanks for sharing and very well played - I enjoyed that a lot. Andy

    One More Day Remix

    I can only endorse the views of others - this was great first time around and this is even better. For me, it just lifts the vocals slightly and there's a little more separation in the mix. Great work all round - one of those songs that thumps you right in the chest. Andy

    Psychobabble Blues

    Bjorn - don't beat yourself up over timing, try practising alongside a metronome. Don't try to play anything specific, just noodle about with chord progressions you know but try to keep in time - it'll come. I like the blues progression on this and it works well with the lyrical story, now a bit of Hammond organ in the background and you have yourself a winner. 😀
  9. I have a Gen1 Focusrite 2i4 (better since a new driver was released) and I run CbB, S1Pro and a bunch of VSTs/ FX including Melodyne 5, EzKeys, EzDrummer, EzBass, Pianoteq, GarritanIO and Izotope Elements to name a few and it seems to cope with all these with ease. My input devices are a Roland A88 v1 and a couple of guitars, DI'd through the sound card. The other big plus with Scan stuff, it doesn't come preloaded with bloatware. 👍 Entirely up to you of course but in my experience, you could certainly do worse. Andy
  10. Tony, I have a Scan 3XS laptop - coming on for three years old and still rocking. They are very solid machines and although I had some initial problems with mine (it would randomly BSOD) the after sales was superb. Eventually turns out the BSOD is caused by my ancient sound card which needs upgrading; I've learned to live with it and it happens only rarely these days. 😂 I would go to Scan again when I replace this, I had custom desktops before but this has proved to be a very good machine. Couple of minor crits, the fan can sometimes be a little on the noisy side but I suspect cooling has come on since I bought this and the battery life on mine is not spectacular but I almost always use it on mains. Hope that helps Andy
  11. What a great take on an old classic, a little less Bublé than the usual covers of this song - that's for sure - and all the better for it! 😂 Top work as always Andy
  12. Nigel - your vocalist could sing the phone book and make it sound like an aria - fabulous mix on the vox and that touch of delay really nails it. Great mix all round - another belter - loved it. Andy
  13. Great honky-tonk piano, vocals and mix - loved it! Andy
  14. I guess it was ultimately borne of frustration, I don't have hours to waste trying to fix something that should just work out if the box. I did do a fair bit of googling around the problem across multiple forums and concluded that my experience was far from unique and there didn't seem to be an obvious fix - apart from uninstall/ reinstall that I had already tried several times. I contacted AmpleSound support and tried everything they suggested to no avail - it simply would not work - so in the end they said they would support my case for a refund and actually they were very good about it but I would have to go (with their approval) via the reseller - which was fair enough. The reseller (whom I won't name) was extremely difficult and pretty obnoxious and only eventually agreed on the basis that I would be 'banned for life' from ever purchasing from them again. A very strange approach to customer service but ultimately their loss I think. Andy
