Don,

I have to echo Donnie Mac's comments, especially regarding "He Stopped Loving Her Today", and add that your use of the harmonizer was spot on...just enough, and no more!

It's sometimes hard not to overuse it. Your settings were also what made it work so good.

Also, a very nice build-up with the arrangement as the song progressed. The key change was nice...is it in the original song?

The guitar emulation is great as usual, but I'm also impressed with the string/violin/vocal sound lines that's also supporting your vocal...is that you playing all those parts with your right hand, or is some of it in the style? It certainly works very well, and prevents the tune from becoming too repetitive.

All around, a nicely done tune.

Ian

Thank you Ian! Yes the original had the transposition. The strings were put in with the right hand with an STS setting I made (OTS to Yamaha). It also added a WUUHH vocal pad to the left hand. There was also a guitar strum and a Pedal Steel riff added via Multipads.
In the past day or so, I have brightened up the high end on the keyboard e.q. just a little, to bring out a little more "pop" in the style parts. Still experimenting!

Don:

Really nice performance and the overall sound was crystal clear. The Korg sound good too.

Zuki, how did you find the Pa3X keyboard feel relative to the Pa900?

I find the keys feel slightly shorter, not as heavy, very responsive. I can play faster on them with less stress on my old bones.
Probably most would prefer PA3x. I prefer PA900 key bed. They may be the same, but they certainly feel different to me.

I do too, Don, except when I play high up on the keys - you have to be very deliberate to make them sound.
