It really reminds me one of the Austin power movie soundtrack. Nice track.

July 6, 2020 12:14 am

It's like pocket sand, but much more convenient to carry around.

Nice chill beach vibes you brought here.

July 6, 2020 12:32 am

Beautiful composition, and wonderful mix.

Awesome man, sounds good.  Love the arp runs and the lead with intense vibrato.

July 6, 2020 5:08 am

So chill.

Nice, love the vibes in this one! Got some sunburn at the beach last Thursday and just started watching the Office so this hits close to home for me smile

(those cuica sounds remind me of a dog barking)

Very campy sounds, perfect for summer! Definitely space lounge Esquivel vibe. Your faux guitar work is dead on.  Percussion and horns are all awesome.  Fun fun fun!

Getting that nylon sound proved to be harder than I thought... not sure I completely nailed it but close enough. The auto-fret noise could use some logic and some more tweaking (probably makes more sense to write it in)

This is really something else. It's so clear and vibrant, like a good trip to the beach, then it goes back to Austin Powers and I died. what is the melodic barking sort of instrument? is that a perc?

Technically it's the mourning dove patch from my WhiskerBox track! But it sounded close enough to a cuíca; a drum with a wooden rod attached on the inside that is rubbed to create a high pitched squeak. Cuíca is Portuguese for the gray four-eyed opossum that has a similar call, although I've yet to hear a recording of one.

This track would go very well with a drink, a swimming pool, the sun and eventually a plastic ukulele.

this track makes easy-listening really heavy. It is as delicious and fresh like a pina colada on the beach.
Fantastic production.

I just use a bbcode plugin to make my life easier, there is this one for chrome, and I made one for firefox:
BBCode Helper.

Ooooooh that makes sense.  Thanks for the plugin recommendation I'll give it a looksee.  At least Kramer gets to finally dance!

This could be a Donkey Kong Country bonus level.

you developed a plugin to up your gif game?  that's sooooooo hilarious and so awesome and TOTALLY explains your crazy gif powers

I think I did a pretty ok job modeling the nylong guitar, although I didn't want too much high end frequencies and I think maybe that guitar got a little lost. After hearing it on several speakers since, I think I should try to mix that guy a bit better.
