    Somebody to Love

    I'm constantly pleasantly surprised by the quality of work on this forum, and here's another great track. Good balanced backing, but the stand-out here is the strength of the vocal which stands alongside the original Grace Slick / Airplane track. It's also good that you took a direct shot at it, nothing outlandish. Great work Jerry
  2. Hi Paul, wow - I thought the instrumentation, balance and production sounded greta, smooth and professional. And then the words hit, and (as a fellow Brit, and also as a near West-Midlander) you hit quite a few nails on the head, good blended vocal work, too. Great track, it should have a wider distribution nationally. Well done! Jerry
  3. Thanks Simon. That takes me a step nearer the PayPal transaction Jerry
  4. Anyone installed this on Windows 10 yet? I hear there's problems with the installer affecting Win10. jdf
  5. (as I reported earlier ...) JRRShop says it's not available in UK, However, I just checked with AudioDeluxe who take me as far as the PayPal acceptance ready to confrm the sale, which I haven't yet. jdf
  6. Ho ho - quite a sassy number. As pointed out - its quite a blues bandy-feel. Great harmonica licks punctuating the lead vocals. Good honest bar-room fayre! jdf
  7. Nice muted piano sound - as Douglas said - evokes quite an autumnal mood, well played.

    Yes - nice and gentle. Nice composition and good guitar sound, jdf
  9. Thanks for the feedback everyone, much appreciated. As you hear, it wasn't a polka by the time I'd finished with it. I takes a lot of hard work to get it to sound as rough as that. jdf
  10. <sulk> jrr says upgrade is not available in my country (UK) I blame Brexit
  11. Thanks Tom. That's the harmonica (first took the lead earlier in the set). I tried more reverb on the fiddle, but (I think) the drier setting brings it forward in the mix. Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed it. Regards Jerry
  12. Some Other Stomp: A traditional tune (A minor Polkas) on a harder rock backing. Leads - fiddle, harmonica; backing - electric guitar, bass, drums, organ. jdf
  13. I did have my eye on the Bolder Roots Upright Bass, but I've just bought it. It's a lovely bass, great sounds and a lot of options to control the sounds. Great biting percussive edge for the rootsy genres of music . I haven't been through all the nuances yet, but it looks a belter for jazz, rock, rootsy acoustic folk, etc.

    For All The World

    This is an acoustic, traditional-style tune with violin, uilleann pipes and harp leads. It's my composition, I hope you like it. Jerry
  16. Nice clean, fresh sound. A quirky arrangement for a quirky ltric. Good sound. It's almost a Nick Lowe type of song (which is good), even some of your pronunciation in places is a bit Lowe-ish. jdf
  17. Great sound, nice punchy and raunchy. The ending is quirky, not a problem in principle, just that the sax sound is a little weird, and probably needed some stereo widening .. probably. I have Jam Origin guitar and bass, never used them properly yet, I ought to have a go with them. jdf
  18. Lovely work, really from the soul here. Well done.
  19. Great sound, Kenny, especially the guitar tone. Good work (as always). I'll tell you what - the standard of work here on Cakewalk songs is way better than the tracks on the "Made with Cubase" forum (I hope none of them are here). jdf
  20. Not really. I presume we've all got scores of saturation, tape and console emulators. And here's another one. But - it just may be the one you've been looking for. Or not...
  21. No fixed rules - try it all ways. Technically I'd say without. Two emulations of the same virtual kit is not really emulating any real life (if emulations ever do), but you may hit on a magic formula between the two (and any other emulations you can throw in at the same time). Dress those channels up like a Christmas Tree (CPU permitting) - throw in all the emulations you've got.
  22. Works fine in Cubase (and CbB) I expected the online form filling to be more hassle than it was worth, but I've tried it and it works very well. There's quite a few variations you can go through, but it does add a few dbs to its output, probably giving an impression of its power. But if you tame the output back down, it still has some grit to add. Interesting to play around with, and woth the money-free hassle. jdf
  23. Nice sounding loops (not one-off hits), tempting to buy the full kit. I notice on their site their Straight Ahead Bass (upright) is $35.10 (down from $89) - good sound and really tempting. jdf
  24. Warwickshire, UK (in the EU). The picture is the lane next to our house.
