Ah...
...a bowling pin. Clever. Yes. dance rhythms. The pizz strings are A MELODY...nice. Love the piano sound. A loop? If so, it is nice, too. Nice mix of many different elements, Richard. At 1:52 or so the mix sort of drops out for a couple secs. This mix is fun to listen to.
Peace.

Thanks to Paul
I saw what you meant about the 'Pin' (never went bowling you see LOL), but very clever.
The music sounds great and you've really got the knack of these loops..... lovely well placed variety of instruments and used with a very good sense of what would go in a real orchestra I think. Nice and bright and quite magical, regards M

An oldie, but a goodie Richard
Nice job on the build here. Love the way you integrated the piano loops and the pizzicato strings with the dance rhythm.

Very cool listen my friend.

Brilliant
arrangement of loops! Really well put together and very dancy. Very quiet mix though. You could put a limiter on the master track and up the gain - you only have a few peaks in there so it wouldn't alter the dynamics, which are really good btw, too much. I just looked at the wave form! The panning and instrumentation are first class.

Nice stuff. I took a download, thank you.

Music box
With that little angel the impression of a music box is complete: this is a very gentle piece, and you can just imagine coming out of some high tech version of a child's toy.

good job!
horns, piano, marimba (?), strings - this has it all!
i have to confess that bass makes me a little twitchy with its majory feel whilst all else is minory. nonetheless, excellent stiching together of some very good loops - the overall effect is BIG. nice work, anne

I was working with a friends G4 and GB 2 last night, I forgot how limited it is! Despite that older technology your are producing quality music.
Great concept, the strings are dynamic. Perhaps some accents on the congas to bring them to life.
