  1. You have a lot of fans on this one, and me too! I think it might be you are featuring guitars a bit more? That voice really suits your angular compositional style. Angular as in, unconventional and pleasant. Where everyone else is playing with the usual building blocks, you have triangles large and small. As you can see, I'm unqualified to render a decent critique, that's how good and unique your stuff is. Cheers, -Tom
  2. Did you just use the term "nary" ? Could that be a problem??? 🕵 Meanwhile, me too, 2 dongles across 15 years, no big deal, even the time their system took a dump and screwed the entire world for three days or summat.
  3. Chris, thank you so much! But alas I have done that already. The IK amplitude plug is the only plugin I own that will not respond to midi. It might be a quirk in my system. I've reinstalled everything. I believe I'm not the only one with this issue. I never rule out "operator error" . . . 😊
  4. To get this product to receive a midi signal to control rotor speed has been a source of continual epic failure for me. Even after two go-rounds with tech support, years apart, and having digested everything available online, still can't control rotor speed. So if you do buy it, please let a brother know!
  5. Keys work, percussion is just a smidge too hot, lead guitar tone is a bit thin. However, friggin great groove, some very worth improv, and probably needs a "B" section at least. I think you have the embryo all figured out - keep working and adding, this groove it totally worth it!!! And most importantly: where is the smooth, tastefully percolating bass guitar??? An absolute must for this!!! I really liked it. cheers, -Tom
  6. Whatever you have going for a bass really grooves this tune, and your singing is super authentic and conveys the emotions. I got a heavy Bruce Cockburn/John Prine vibe and I love that! cheers, -Tom
  7. Damn you went all out!!! Eggs are so expensive these days.
  8. This seemed the obligatory next post . . .
  9. You've seen through the matrix
  10. Yessss, I finally get a listen. Very up, this one, and count me in for a "What We Do In The Shadows" fan club membership! So I loved it, and everyone else offers kudos, well deserved, your mixing standard is super high and this is no exception, but I wonder is a slightly less "papery" snare might suit as well, something with a bit more midrange snap to it . . . and 100% if you think about bringing the horn section up a tad I'd say go with that thought! Back for another ear helping - great tune! cheers, -Tom
  11. Also I bet Tom Petty would have loved your song, or Smashmouth - it's a really good song when I can hear it being performed in my mind's ear by various artists.
  12. Toes tappin. Your song has two parts and they are both brilliant. Kudos on the punchy yet controlled drums, any tips? That was really great. And your vocal was awesome as well, great voice, man! cheers, -Tom

    Well first off this has a songwriter's signature that I don't remember hearing before. It's super original, which is always good. Mix wise I liked it best when the vocals were doubled! On the single lead vocals, sometimes I couldn't make out the words, which is not a deal breaker exactly - but you might bring the single vocal up just a smidge, or better yet seek out the snare hit that inevitiably masks certain words in spots, and drop the snare out of the way a bit just for that conflicting moment. Or just go with what you got 'cause it's pretty good as is, really. cheers, -Tom
  14. Waiting for the sequel "Frank E. Zoid"
