0:16 and on > the 16th snare+bass+etc. hits sound too fast to me. They should be played laid back, and not faster than the actual 16ths they probably are. They sound like 2 triplet 16ths now. I think you should try and make them sound a little more \"relaxed\", laid back.
Thanks for the replies and input guys . Actually I did this piece as a joke for King. I really didnt tweak it to much at all. All of the hits were done without quantization and I agree they could be more relaxed.
I agree the sax is kind of weak. I would definitely use a real player if I ever did a piece like this since I know a few in town.
MrArkadine, I used Ultimate Strings mf layer slow Violins for the strings. Xsample rhodes, custom drum kit, sonic implants fender strat touchwah, xsample sax.
Thanks again for listening!
Long time no talk! Sorry, I\'ve been really busy, and I also switched ISP\'s. I\'ve got broadband now which is amazing, and I can listen to much more of the talents posting on this forum! My old e-mail address is now useless. Use Axiamusic@yahoo.com if you need to mail me.
Anyway, really nice piece, although a little short, but the one thing that always ruins a good piece like this (for me ,that is) is unconvincing sampled sax. Please get your sax player down for the day to do the rest of the track justice!!
I think it is just so difficult to get a sampled sax to sound good on a track like this, and it unfortunately cheapens the rest of the track, which I think sounds excellent.
I hope my comments are not too offensive. They are meant to be constructive.
