    Who Wants A Two Step

    following the positive reviews I've had from previous offerings, here is a tongue in cheek arrangement highlighting "Bonnie Scotland".
    please don't adjust your volume as the track starts quietly

    JABB: piano, accordions, bass, kick drum
    GPO: fiddle, snare
    Vocal intro: anonymous in a kilt

    This made me laugh!!!!!
    My apologies! all serious composers

    Bonnie fine ceilidh!

    Nice mix of instruments. I especially liked the "distance" you created with the effects in the intro.

    That was a very interesting rendition. I felt I just stepped into a movie and was listening to a sound track. I too like the mix and obviously the presentation. Nice work!

    That was different. A little story that takes you into a scene where you can imagine the people playing and dancing.

    Charming.

    Re: Who Wants A Two Step

    Thanks for the feedback
    The intro is fairly straight forward
    1. Instruments through a Group Track where the reverb and gain levels were adjusted (real time write and replay in Cubase, I'm sure Sonar does the same thing).
    2. Spoken audio track recorded (in my box cupboard vocal booth) dry straight to master gain.

    I should have lowered the high end by a few db to give a more convincing through the wall sound at the start.

    Cheers

    I didn't laugh!! Instead it reminded me being in Scotland once: the border area. I enjoyed it very much. Nice people, nice landscapes, nice drinks and nice music, only the weather........ Nice to hear this once again in a different setting.

    For some strange reason, my web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Version 6) won't let me connect to your mp3 file, Lad.

    If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    I'm getting the same report from local friends. I'm on version 7.
    I asked them to try downloading mp3's from other sites and they counldn't so I was thinking it was their firewall or some setting on their Explorer.
