I checked and the fretless bass is the fretless bass patch in the Korg M1 vsti.

Whatever happened to this guy? He did like two albums then disappeared.
Haven't heard this song in years and years, but this is a smooooth rendition. Love the sound palette.

Thanks! He forgot how to write great songs. He's been putting out stuff regularly but his weak voice doesn't help.

Very nice! Recording, playing - all perfect. You nailed it.

You say 'we' in the initial post.. Your band? Real drums? Just curious. Whenever it appears someone has recorded real drums and they sound this good - I have to ask.

Sam - I got curious too and looked him up on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Cross

Does appear he's been producing new material - but must not be resonating with people. Sad, he had one of the best voices in the biz back in the day. He never seemed to fit the typical pop/rock star mold, yet was wildly successful. It was refreshing, yet an outlier. Just another testament to his incredible voice and songwriting.

Anyway - great job!

Thanks so much. The song is me and 3 other buds doing everything. The drums are superior drummer with manual fills added with midi keyboard drumming/editing and some nice saturation on the snare for snap and some medium room plate reverb. We think the drums sound real and are very happy with them. Thanks again.

Nice! Nice arrangement and the vocals really draw you in. Good rhythm section tracks too : )

I forgot who said it first, but it's a good quote that you have ten years to write the songs for your first record and nine months on the road to write for your second.

This is good, performance and mix. Nice voice.
I liked everything but the last 'sailing' BV vocals. I would prefer less reverb, processing.
Great work guys!

Thanks for the nice constructive feedback. Did you notice the phase shifter on one of the last BV vocal passes ? The extra verb was to account for less than stellar vocals :-)

I listen to the kind of metal that makes small children cry and dogs nervous, but I know a well recorded tune when I er, hear one.

Makes me think of driving along Highway 7 in Canada on a warm summer's night with local radio on and a cold beer or two waiting for me at the cottage.

An optional romantic lady round the campfire would be a real bonus
