nice mellow chill track, always enjoy the ultrasoniq choirs :love: the bass level could have been a tad lower...it kinda overpowered everything when it came in. then again, it added to a great build up! enjoyed regardless :tu:

Cheers, Matt. Glad you liked it :) I'm hoping to make some more in a similar vein (maybe featuring some Strat abuse) after the next remix is done.

You seem to harbour under the illusion that your target audience are somehow drugged out of their minds.

I have seen you posting stuff before.

Naughty naughty.

If I was kind about it, I would say: either get some mental health help or stop bothering people here at KVR.

Or if I wasn't kind about it, yes, great stuff, keep it up, more of that kind of thing...

Really. If you are serious about this, then, you know...

Otherwise, why give people an excuse to lock you up?

This HAS been going on for quite a while now.

When does the point come for you when you need to get help?


Edit:

I seem to realise that not only have I probably made an enemy out of you, but I also probably have, out of those that respond to you, encouraging you in your antics. So be it.

Don't encourage him. In a future life, you shall be culpable. In fact, under many states of law, you shall be liable.

This is a case, probably best dealt by, by the state, however inadequate we might feel them to be.

Let us not interfere.

(Disclaimer: for those hard of humour, this whole post was a piss take and a 'rationale' on those that would be too quick to jump)

Happy whatever.
You'll be pleased to know, I'm knocking it all on the head.

Great track Tim! Love the eerie empty start. It's hard not to over do things. Temptation resisted.
Panning is interesting/expertly done. The vocals are excellent. Brilliant strong bass really takes this to another plane. Powerful statement Tim! Well done. :)

I thought it might be because it got me reflecting on some people that I lost. It's a beautiful tribute. :love:

I'm glad people in the Cafe are picking up on it even though it's not a typical beat-oriented track.


Cool. I'm glad that it evoked that sort of emotional response. It gives me hope that I might actually have a clue what I'm doing, even if only occasionally.

Many thanks, Frantz :)

cinematic grand and sad

I think the part from 4 min. could extend longer, but great as it is.

shows depth in sound and creative patience


Thanks very much for the great comments, and for listening, wavephonic :) Maybe I'll try something in a similar style in the coming months.

ooh the slightly high frequency grain and its interaction with the deep bass is really cool. I don't really like the delay interval on the staccato synths. I would have preferred a shorter duration of maybe a reverb. The brass sounding synths with the longer slower attacks, on the other hand, fit nicely.
