Miles and McLaughlin/Covers/REAPER

Post by surfercook » Tue Feb 27, 2018 9:36 pm

The Miles Davis composition "Blue In Green" and John McLaughlin"s "Follow Your Heart" are two songs that have been in my repertoire for yrs. Been playing alot of keyboards lately as my YouRockGtr skills have declined a bit since I don't pick it up much any more. All the midi here is from Kontakt5 full library. I have my Samplitude Producer up and running too so hoping to get some RECing done w/that library too. No drums in these RECs here though. Having a bit of trouble getting them to sound in sync lately.
There's only one guitar track and it's in FYH.

Blue and Green

Follow Your Heart

Listening to Blue in Green. Everything is midi? Or is that you playing guitar? It all sounds pretty real to me. Nice recording. Good deep bass.

I've got the other one playing now. Nice keyboard chops. Do you play chords, notes, or both? There is a lot of different parts mixing well on this one. Good work here too.

Thanks for listening Sean and commenting on both of my recordings. Blue and green has a piano track and upright Bass track which are both MIDI the guitar track is my es 135. Follow your heart has 2 electric piano tracks an upright Bass track along with saxophone. Those are all midi instruments played on my keyboards. Funny I hadn't had my keyboard out for like 2 years and I finally made myself take it down off the shelf and started playing it. these recordings are about a month after I started playing again

Marc ~ I listened to the Miles tune tonight. Good stuff. Very clear recording and the mix is spot on. I don't know anything about Miles, but I enjoyed listening to this while I was putzing around in my studio. On my mixing speakers it sounds a little bassy, but on headphones it's perfect. Jazz On!!

I covered this on my comments on your other new offerings and I still say I like it. Although your Miles covers don't always include trumpet sounds, the atmosphere still makes me think of him.

You've got a jazzy groove going here.

They work well tonally and the sounds are chosen well and nice playing.

Cheers

Nice. The "upright bass" sounds really good!
