Description
i haven't done a Latin style song in a while and decided to give another one a go.
tried some new stuff on this one, mainly playing the keys with my guitar.
i broke down and spent the $100 on Jam Origin's Midi Guitar. fell in love
with it. no more endless midi editing, are playing stuff over and over till
i got it right because of my limited piano skills. just hook up my guitar
and play whatever sound i need--and keep the human touch to boot.

ME: bass, acoustics, and Keys via MidiG.
Keys: LoungeLizard.

PREGUNTAS

I could not understand
All those feelings
I haven't got a clue at all
What happened to me

I could not understand
All those sentimental tones
But if by chance I do recall,
I won't know what to think
What happened to me?

It was just today
When I first realized
That all i need
I have to visualize

No me lo explico
Las montanas
No nunca me lo comprendo
Lo que me paso

sure
could have recorded back then for how low it is. i always compare my mix sound with all plugs on and all plugs off to hear the difference. have to turn off the limiter for match volume, but forgot to turn it back on before uploading. now it's super low vol. didn't even want to bother with a re-upload. now listeners have suffer with the "unmastered" version.

Has that Brazilian beach flow. Nice melody and harmonies. Midi guitar seems to work, keys sound natural and have great feel. Good one!

Try again!
Now I can't post a comment. Or maybe I have. If so, you'll get two for the price of one. Anyway, I'm really liking this. Lovely lilting Latin lope, great mix and the midi work sounds really organic. Really nice song.

definitely nice to get rid of relying on my simple keyboard playing or midi files. only have to deal with that for drums and percussion now. i even experimented with a Sam orchestra. appreciated.

the only mixing i've been doing lately is a little re-mixing, just to keep the flow. but this was the first from scratch since the challenge. the break made me try new stuff.

Preguntas
Sammy! I can't express how much I like this ... and I'm not blown' smoke!
I have got to get me one of those midi guits... I didn't realize they cost so little. Your vocals and harmonies are so smooth in this. I think I like your voice best when you sing this way. Musically just all the right touches and the mix is nice and warm. I now you mentioned volume level but I think music suffers when limiters are over done and volume is pushed. It takes away dynamics and warmth.... you can always turn up your speakers. Anyway, great job Sam. Definitely one of my fav's.

hey Stan
it's so cheap because it's software only, but it gives the hardware midi guitars a run for the money. the biggest thing is to be able to get ultra low latency. i can go down to about 2ms on my computer, which makes it pretty much impossible to hear any sort of delay. so i use that setting in the MG prefs. you still have to fine tune a bit, but once you get just the right settings for you computer and playing style, you're good to go. i think you'd be DANGEROUS with one. thanks so much.

Bueno!
Beautiful piece - love the vocal harmonies. Cool that you get all the MIDI out of the guitar - I usually go out of my way to do the opposite (with scant success!). Great laid back groove.

Fantastic
Hi Sammy, Great music. I wondered what you were up to, now I know. Great music. Are you using the YouRock Midi guitar or something else? Loved the sound. I recently got one and played all of my piano pieces with it. Makes a big difference.

Great to see you're doing well and of course, great performance.


sammydix said 1133 days ago (February 17th, 2014)
Rick!
never used YouRock, i think Pharm does, though. i got the JO because you don't need any hardware and it's still pretty decent. thx.

I like the latin feel to this, but what really is cool about this tune are those harmonies, and the way you "trick' us into thinking we are in a minor progression until they come in and...it's major! lol Really fun, Sam - thanks!

I'll just hitch on to Andrew's comments and say this is superb. Playing, singing, arrangement, production are all great. Better than anything I have heard on the radio in many a year.

Latin
Exotic feel to the song, with a 60's flair.
Authentic period sound to the guitars.
The tools: Sometimes it takes some help to get that sound bouncing around in your head on to the DAW. Guitar solo octaves a pleasure to the ear. The vocals are your signature style, consistent regardless of the genre. Not many can achieve!

are excellent. You do latin style well. I admire the simple arrangement and the space in between. I seem to fill every inch of my songs, but would like to try something more restrained. Thanks for the influence. Downloaded!
