    It's a hit, midiman! Like a big song on the radio. outstanding professional level stuff (IMHO). Your mix is rich, the drums and the synths all create a beautiful texture for her voice. love when the solo guitar entrance towards the end. big fav.

    thanks midisparks I appreciate your comments.. I am quite confused now some say it is a good mix some say it has some timing issues. Might I ask what kind of speakers did you listen to it on.

    I thought it came out pretty well also.

    I believe their may be some timing issues throughout with the vocal letting the flow and dynamic down a bit.promising arrangement though. good luck with future projects.

    Thanks for your comments. I did let the vocals drift a little I wanted it to flow more natural than a strict timing. It is not that much out.

    The song is great...love the sounds,vocals and the overall feel of the song.

    Must point out that the vocals feel like they are in the background and need to be brought forward a tad.

    I'm not sure but it seems like every sound is washed in a reverb or something as it seems like a very wet track overall and maybe some of the sounds should be heard dry.

    Not being critical, however looperman spoils my ears with so much quality....your song is quality...just the mix levels seem dazed.

    Great Songs...like this deserve to be mastered....purely food for thought.

    Best Regards,

    Yes I can hear the vocal a little more in the back ground on different smaller speakers I will fix and re upload. As far as the re verb it was mostly from the instruments them selves. I added a little on the over all mix to have them sound like they were in the same room. i guess I could cut some of it back more. Although it sounds like it was performed in a large room.

    many thanks for your reply. ok with the toms. I use also ezdrummer plugun but in a quite different way... I might sometimes be pointing some issues that seem strange and in fact usless for some people cause Im listening to so many music genres at the moment - that's all! Sorry for any confusion. But apart from all that I really enjoyed your track and liked your vision on this song. Best, Alex

    hi again, just had an impression that the intro drums (0:00 - 0:15) are phase-panned. At the moment I experiment a lot with the effects but I never 'move' instruments like this. of course you can pan them even hard left/right but the drums for the most part drive the the tracks like this so such an effect is a bit strange here, at least for me. I think the 'retro' tracks like this need simply quite different kind of effects. Alex

    Thanks for the explanation of what you are hearing.

    First the toms are always panned left and right on a normal drums set. I just played the toms they came out panned left, center and right. The panning is normal. Play your toms on EZdrummer or a similar drum machine. The snare and kick are dead center on a mix. Just as is the bass.

    I kind of like the panning on the intro it makes the song sound different.

    Again thanks for the comments. I hoped I explained this to you.

    hi midiman, I much enjoyed a kind of a retro 80s 90s(?) pop sounds in here. Excellent work on this one! the only thing is some strange processing(s) added to the entire track (panning?) and also to the single parts that make it sound so special and unusual(?) but its still relative of course...
    great track! Alex

    Hi ALex Thanks for your comments. I have remastered it and re-posted it.

    I do not under stand what you mean by the only thing is some strange processing(s) added to the entire track (panning?)

    Can you please explain a little bit more in detail.

    Thanks again for listening.

    I really enjoyed this track. Midiman. Yes, it is pop and yes it has a retro sound to it, but I LIKE pop and like retro! :) The instrumental backing is very lush. On occasion the timing of the vocals did not match the plus (tempo) of the backing track. If you have the software, I'd attempt some time stretching to change the phrasing of the vocals so that align better. Most of the time they were fine. You have the "Where are you now" refrain repeat 4 times in the track. I actually think it would be more effective if it only repeated twice. I know that 4 repeats of things seems to be a standard practice in EDM, but for pop and for this track in particular, i'd see how it feels cut back to 2 repeats.

    But, all in all, I really liked the song. Thanks for posting it!

    Thanks for your comments. I will try and fit the vocals a bit tighter in the track on the next remix. I think the Drums sounds need some work on the current mix.

    I really like it midiman, I echo MagneticRecords...it has that 90's, and some 80's vibe to it.

    From a production standpoint, did you add reverb in your master chain? It seemed to have lost clarity and punch. I'd try cutting back a bit on the reverb.

    It's a fantastic track, very well arranged, and catchy too.

    I did add little reverb not much. I will try and remix over the weekend and repost. Thanks for the feedback. It might have todo with me mixing on my pro Tanoy studio monitors and not lisitng to it on smaller less ample speakers. I will repost over the weekend after I remix and please let me know if my new mix is better. Thanks again for the postivcie feedback and what need to be improved.

    Hi again.

    "what kind of speakers are you listening to this on"

    Actually, I never listen to Looperman tracks on proper speakers. I mostly just use not very good earbud headphones plugged into the laptop.

    Sometimes I listen back to my own tracks out of the laptop's shitty inbuilt speakers (the kind with pathetic bass). My tracks have a lot of bass in them so it's interesting to hear a track played back with almost no bass that still manages to sound pretty damn good.

    "I know most pop songs have the octive bass in it."

    I'm not so sure. I think it's more of a feature of funk and disco. Anyway, it makes sense in your track. I hope you can get a better mix of this. It sounds pretty good but could be better.

    Good luck.

    Hi. I think this is a pretty decent pop song though I feel the production could be much improved.

    Bass and drums don't punch and kick they way they probably should. For a start (easy to fix) the bright pad synth seems too loud and is taking up a lot of space and drowning out that rhythm section.

    Bass is quite subdued and also seems to be panned a bit too much to the left.

    This has quite a jubilant, easy listening 80s synthpop sort of feel to it. I guess a bit of disco thrown in too from that guitar. And also the octave jumping bass guitar parts which remind me a little of ELO's excellent Last Train To London. Do you know it?

    She has a good voice well suited to pop music though it's not really my kind of thing.

    Good work though I hope you can make it more powerful and get that engine room of bass and drums cutting better though the mix.

    Hi Thanks for the comments I will try and work more on the drums and pads and redo the mix later this week. I apprciate the feedback.

    yes I remember ELO - Last Train To London. I know most pop songs have the octive bass in it.

    If you don'yt mind what kind of speakers are you listening to this on, Studio mionitor or pc speaker?

Description : This is a kind of funk-disco-big band number that will make you think of the 70s and 80s, if you're old enough. It has all those vintage sounds so popular in this genre. I tried to maintain the sounds of the time while still enabling some updating. Even if you had never liked disco, give this one a try. It may surprise you.

At first I left it but then I agreed that it didnt seem to fit.
