Man I LIKE this!
Love the wah lead. Cool fonky beat and bass. My only nit on this would be some chord changes.. Well mixed and produced!

Thanks for listening. I will have to take a hard listen to the chords. I put a lot of this together on a noisy plane but did try to master it afterwards.

Fun tune Mike
and so cool that it was composed (and produced, I assume) using the most contemporary of musical instruments/tools. Tell us that you did it all while traveling back and forth to work, or something similar, and it will be perfect. I took a copy, thanks.

Sort of commuting :)
My normal work commute is a 10 minute drive in Pennsylvania, but I did work on this on a trip to my company's headquarters which are in Denmark - so sort of a reallllly long commute for this one. I actually work with a lot of iPad synths on the long plane ride. Thanks for listening!

Nice track, lovely sounds. Much enjoyed. Is Nanostudio easy to work with on ipad you think? Have you compared it with GB?

Thanks for listening. Nanostudio has a learning curve but is closer to the desktop Garageband than the iPad version of Garageband. It is pretty complete as far as editing and composing goes whereas the iPad version of Garageband has no editing capabilities though it is excellent for playing parts. If you are curious, you can download free desktop versions of Nanostudio for Windows or OSX to play with. It is best for electronica where you want to make your own patches.
