  1. Sounds pretty good to me! I like the way everything meshes together. You've got a really nice bed laid down here, I would just like to hear a real melody to take it from ambient to another level. Really nice job on what you've got! Dan

    Thank you very much for the compliments! I'm truly glad that you enjoyed the music! To get your drums to sound like this, I mostly just use the Waves SSL G channel strip. It's magical. Dan

    Building a new house, including a media room/studio. Stocking/setting up said media room (which was a lot of fun!). Finally, I bought a new motorcycle a couple of years ago so I've been spending a lot of time doing that, as well as building and setting up a shop for it. Just a lot of non-music activity, lol. Omni 2, with a bunch of extras, including Trilian and Keyscape. I had to cut the rumble in those toms as they were a little overpowering, but I added back some in the low mids. The real thing that I think would add some heft is another, deeper kick layered on top of the one in the kit, but, to be honest, I'm anxious to move on to the next one, and I'm pretty happy with what's there Thanks a bunch for the feedback!
  5. Nigel, this track is very well done! As they used to say on American Bandstand, "it sounds good and is easy to dance to". Mix is very good, though I heard some distortion on the hats (left ear), but that may be intentional. Thanks for sharing! Dan
  6. There's the Tom I remember! Very smooth the way you melded those two sections together. I didn't even realize it had happened at first, lol. Great work Tom! Dan

    Hiya Jesse! Thanks for the comments, though, I doubt it's better than Mannheim, lol. I am glad the epic, or majestic feel came through. It's a reflection of how I feel riding a motorcycle through the mountains. Dan

    Ha, ha, you should have heard the hats in the first mix, lol. Thanks for the listen and your comments! Dan

    Thanks Paul! Trimming back is hard! You'll hear that every chorus/verse is always just a little different...that's because I removed stuff from "here" that I leave in "there". It adds variety, and I don't have to completely kill something that I liked, lol. Dan

    BFD3 is, by far, my favorite drum VSTi. I like the detailed control I have over the kits. Having said that, I have never used Superior Drummer, and many folks have commented on how good it is. I do have Addictive (of course), and Steven Slate's SSD4 and now SSD5. I like SSD, but the feel I can get out of BFD3 makes them more real to my ears. Hopefully, it won't be another year before the next one, lol. Thanks for listening and I appreciate your comments. We all learn from each other, that's for sure. Dan

    Would you believe "Airshow" was April of 2017? Sure doesn't feel like that long ago, lol. Thanks for the listen and the kind words! Dan

    Thanks Tom! For this piece, except for the drums, pianos, guitars and organ, it is all Omnisphere. The drums were BFD3, pianos were two Kontakt libraries and Ivory II (Bosendorfer). The organ is the vintage organ library in NI Komplete (Kontakt), which I find fills a lot of roles in a single package. All of the guitars, except the lead, were me and my Fender. Dan
  15. Very nice Keith! Really good job on the vocals and this mix sounds great! Dan
