    Very pleasant listen, and quite relaxing. Really enjoyed it. Had a rather hypnotic vibe to it, but still maintained interest.

    "Worth" by Electramode

    Great song, tight performances, polished mix and a pretty sophisticated arrangement. Really enjoyed listening to this one.

    Drive Me Away

    I like the song, has a nice vibe to it and made for an enjoyable listen. The one thing that struck me right away was the length of the intro. It was longer than I expected, and for a second or two I was wondering if this was going to be an instrumental track. Possible the vocals should start earlier, or maybe add some additional development of the arrangement when the opening phrase/progression gets repeated. Just my two cents. But overall, I quite liked the song.

    my love

    Really like the melody and the arrangement. Nice, gentle, a bit hynpotic. The vocal work wavered a little in some parts, and that did distract me a bit - must be honest about that. However, your voice has a nice timbre to it, and I can see it really working well in this song with a bit more steadiness. Overall, the vibe of the song was quite charming, and I did enjoy it.

    SPEND MY LIFE MAKIN LOVE

    Really great song. Tight performances and a very polished sound - I thought the mix was clear and clean and really open. Great vocal work, too, although for my own tastes I probably would have preferred the vocal to be just a wee bit more forward. There were brief sections were the vocals were a bit hidden by the instruments.

    The Soldier's Hornpipe - Symphonic March

    Thanks, Daryl. Appreciate the kind words.
  10. Hi folks, curious if anyone took a chance on the Jaeger library from Audio Imperia. I recall being somewhat unimpressed when it first dropped (and I recall a few of our members not being too impressed with the demos or the short video samples either), but I recently came across a few walk-thrus, including one by composer Daniel James (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-uOck7zALw) that seem to suggests it's actually a good library with some nice features. A bit pricey, but maybe much better than expected. However, it's so hard to tell from demos or even walk-thrus, and I'd be curious if anyone here has hands-on experience with it. Thanks, Rob

    I watch the Orville via iTunes. Bought a season pass and download the episodes as they are released.

    Brent Spiner, Comedic Actor

    The Orville is quite good, and does something risky and unusual - it's hilarious, but also has real characters and real stories, and the episodes alternate between comedic ones that are affectionate riffs on Star Trek (and other franchises), and stories with some genuine drama, action and social commentary to go along with the comedy. I very much enjoy it, and see it as sort of spiritual successor to STNG. Sort of. It is clearly made by folks who are both amused by Star Trek, and really love it. Brannon Braga is one of the executive producers (he co-wrote the STNG finale, was a senior producer and major player for STNG, Voyager, ST Enterprise and some of the Trek movies), and I know at least a few STNG cast alumni are involved, too: Jonathon Frakes (Cmd Riker) has directed a couple of episodes; Marina Sirtis is guest starring in an upcoming show; and there are rumors LeVar Burton might be making a cameo in season 2 also. I'm a big Trek fan (as you can tell), but I much prefer The Orville to Discovery.

    Editors Keys - January Sale

    I've been eyeing them for a while, and am waiting until I next need a keyboard replacement, which may be reasonably soon...

    8DIO Adagio Violas

    Worth noting that if you buy enough of these discounted original string libraries, I believe you can parlay that into a significantly discounted price for Anthology Strings. I did that, and I get a lot of use out of it. Anthology is a revamped and consolidated version of the Adagio / Agitato libraries, is my understanding. Update: or maybe not. I can't find information on the upgrade path they offered previously. Might have been time limited...worth asking about, though, if anyone is so inclined.
