A history lesson through song
This wonderful piece had the power to take me back
through song to that violent time of Irish history. Brilliant!!

Excellent manipulation of the midi instruments, some of
the best I have heard. Do you have a website with more?
I'll go check your profile. Meanwhile thanks for a history
blast.

Me mum...
would love this song. I enjoyed it very much. My only complaint is that this piece deserves better presentation. Artwork and lyrics would go a long way complimenting this great irish tune.

Nice sound here with the software instruments. It makes
for a very convincing sound, although it's hard to hide the
artificial sound of the flute. I would like it more if the
vocals and lyrics were center stage, a little more up front
in the mix. While listening, I went to your bio page. One
question: why didn't you play some of the instruments
live?

Thanks for the feedback. I found that playing real instruments really taxed my
Mac's processor, especially when using effects. The trade off was to use
software instruments so that I could process the vocals. I'll plan on doing
something with real instruments at a later date.

Irish eyes are smiling
This is a wonderfull departure from most of what I hear
here. The vocals could use a little more clerity and
volume, but it's a great tune.

I can smell the peet burning
as I wander through damp streets. Great job at re-creating
an environment through song! You definitely tapped into
some buried memories with this one. More bottom out of
the bodhran drum, and spread it slightly to fill more of
the room would have been an even more saturating
experience. Conversely, the vocals would be clearer if they
were more centered -- not dead center but fairly close. I
remember the bands used to sit close together in front or
off to one corner. The switch in panning (or vocal takes?)
near the end was interesting -- in some ways I liked that
sound better than the mix you have from the begining.
Enjoyed this -- please do more! -sailhome

Ottawa Memories
I worked on and off in Ottawa about a decade ago. I went
to an Irish pub with a live band a few times and really
enjoyed it. This brings back those fond memories. I’d
love to hear this with live instruments. The vibraphone
sounds out of place in this one. Although, I’m surprised
how well you did with the other MIDI instruments.

Really gets under your skin
A joy to listen to and with a tune that stays in your
head for ages. It's got a lovely strong vocal which
suits it perfectly. I'm impressed with the quality of
the software instruments, which mostly sound very
authentic and are well suited to the song.

All in all a great piece and I'd love to hear more along
these lines!

thanks
for this version of the song. Perhaps the very good vocals could have been a bit more foregrounded-that's a matter of taste I guess. But in any case excellent work, thanks for the download.
Cheers
