    Cool Damon. Really styleful...

    Can I make one small point?

    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.

    Keep up the groovy stuff!

    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!

    I also used GOS full strings marcato for the hits.
    US violins was just used in the intro.

    Hi Damon,

    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.
