Great vibe to this tune. Very chill. I really dig the use of multiple pads. Fading and panning on pans creates really nice effects and transitions. I also dig the chilled groove that's first established around 1:17.

Nice one.

Nice song, I like the layering of the pads/choirs/textures (how many did you use?)... :love:

The beat is a bit too shy, it could have a few more percussion elements!

Thanks ;)
The main pad I programmed with the Virus. Another is from Predator and from Diva.
There is also a lot automation of filter, volume, panning and stuff.

This.

edit/add: the 'announcements' of something happening disappoint every time you use them. For example: you seem to launch a break but then the track doesn't change at all.

In addition to Tricky's comment: you should either reduce the percussion even more or enrich it by further elements from time to time.

Also I think you've chosen the 'wrong' speed. I remember that I've said this about another tune of your's some time ago. Funny or coincidence or fundamental reception by me... I don't know. :)

I`ll be listening to it more to 'see' what it is i`m hearing...but for the moment on 1st listen I can`t stand the hats. The sounds are all smooth but you have these chattering hats clicking..it`s way annoying to me.
EDIT - Yes, your whole upper end reminds me of bugs. It seems overly biased towards sounds that bugs hear and make. :)

Hehe, but I don't think there will be enough sells to cancel my job :hihi:
I see it more as promotion and the internet radio helps a bit to reach more listeners.

I believe that`s true only for the reason that insects don`t have Paypal accounts...at least the phylum I know. :wink:

Good luck with all your music Frank...just having a bit of fun here, hoping your OK with it.:)
