    Nice song. Separation is good. It sounds a bit thin especially the drums; I do miss some warmth and it could have more bottom part, pronounced bass and base drum. Otherwise, very pleasant to listen to!
  2. Really like your plugins. Never thought of asking the bakers to implement them in Cakewalk/Sonar? Would be nice to have them standard in the DAW...

    Love the song. Could automatically imagine an extra major seven vocal on the chorus. When finishing the mix I would try to get rid of the a bit a weird pumping effect (too much gate?) with sounds falling away at moments which makes it a bit exhausting to listen to, and create a bit more distance/depth between the instruments. Otherwise very nice!

    Like all your songs this makes me feel being back in the eighties enjoying the GRP All-Stars records which inspired my old band in several ways! πŸ‘

    Nice, interesting song!πŸ˜‰ Few comments: Vocals (mainly during the intro) seem not entirely in tempo and sometimes before the beat which was a bit distracting. After that the vocals mostly sound in tempo The drums are a bit clean/static could be more lively Love the change with the sax solo, except it sounds dissonant with the chords at moments making it messy. Maybe it is introduced on purpose to emphasize what the subjects experience. I don't think the song needs that, the unexpected change (sounds a bit hallucinating) is great by itself. If it's a sample, I would change the underlying chords to match it, or use Melodyne to change a few sax notes Love the changes to the different sections and you have a nice voice! We need more original songs like this...
  6. Looks handy. Is a bit too expensive to my taste for just an extra keyboard with only one use. The backlit feature is nice though. it's not clear to me There still seem to be Cakewalk Sonar stickers for keyboards available like this: sonar-keyboard-stickers You can get a cheap second keyboard and put stickers (they do look a bit cheap and outdated though...) like that on it if it's for learning the hotkeys. I didn't pay attention but I guess most hotkeys will be still the same for the new Sonar.
  7. Would be very nice if BandLab would pay effort to get the hardware manufacturers to make their new keyboards/controllers fully compatible with Sonar. If this will happen, why would it not be compatible with CbB? Sonar is just a name change and another update of a DAW that has many years of backward compatibility...
  8. Just love it, great, much better! Anything else is mainly a matter of mixing taste.
  9. Love the vocals. Nice song for a sunset on the beach.
  10. Great drive! Gives energy, makes me want to write a new songπŸ˜ƒ Like all your songs I listened to it just sounds pro and good (the video clips are nice too).
  11. I agree with Nigel, For me its way to "toppy", for the rest a great song, well performed, would like to listen to it more often when "tamed"!
  12. Exactly, the horns, I really love them! They sound good, nice licks, just some very unfortunate timing issues. Can't you use Melodyne to get them straight? Maybe some other stem separation tool? The lead vocal could really benefit from de-essing (again maybe Melodyne?) and perhaps some warmth. Other than that I think the feel of the vocal is nice and has the right cool vibe!
  13. Love the song, really my kind of music! Few things I think c(s)hould be improved: Timing issues keep distracting me from really enjoying the song. Sound is a bit squeezed, gives me ear fatigue. Could be a bit warmer. Some de-essing, a bit more depth. To make it more interesting you could consider adding a second/third voice while the song progresses over time and some other little different instrumental licks, percussive sounds that keep the attention of the listener. I find the overall composition great, especially the chord changes/melody in the second part.
  14. I get it, I thought you played it yourself. So the suggestions are just not possible. Well, then your ideas with other instruments and vocals are the only wayπŸ˜‰ It is a very nice guitar part indeed anyway!
  15. I like it!, sounds a bit different than your other songs. On point of critic (I've said it before, wasn't received tooo well...😰 but want to insist): After having heard the same chords being repeated a while I'm getting bored, expecting, hoping and waiting for chord or other changes, something that is unexpected and catches the listener: modulation, chord changes, tempo changes, different scale, different verse-bridge-chorus etc. Listen to the Beatles or whatever, there are so many examples. Check Rick Beato - What Makes This Song Great?   He gives endless examples. I like your sound, voice, the recording quality, I think there's great potential and it can become much better when taking the feedback here into account.
