Another vote for the Audio-Technica ATH-M50s. They’re my last line of defense as far as bass buildup in a mix. Comfortable too, and priced right. Note that the “LE” version (LE: limited edition) is over $100 more and from what I can see the added expense is just for the “Special 50th anniversary edition silver-colored metallic finish.”

i think if you ask the producer-types who use our music, the vast majority will tell you they want an ending. Fades are for songs people listen to for enjoyment, but there really isn’t a place for them in multimedia productions.

I have one track with my singing on it. As you can see it’s a HUGE seller. http://audiojungle.net/item/rowdy-na-na/1463540

Here’s a simple suggestion (hopefully not mentioned yet). Why don’t you just swap your two mics and try that. Sing into the 57 and use the condenser on the guitar. Many a hit record vocal has been sung with a 57 or 58.

Addictive Keys has a very nice upright, along with the grand and a fun-to-play Rhodes. It’s almost too nice…it doesn’t really do the old, dusty, out-of-tune Sunday school type of upright. BTW, for those of us who can use eBay, I “made an offer” on the Addictive Keys software and got a very good deal on top of the current sale price. For software you can download instead of waiting for a mailed box, many Ebay dealers will give you a really great price if you just ask, if the item is marked with “make an offer.” (I made an offer to two stores who both came back with counter-offers. I the same offer to a third store and it was accepted immediately and automatically. I was so happy I danced a jig.)

Synthogy Ivory. Used to use the Yamaha all the time; now I use the Steinway almost exclusively. I REALLY need to find a good upright though. Also, a good friend takes some of his work to LA and says the Pianoteq is becoming popular with a lot of guys out there. I didn’t think it was the absolute best I’ve ever heard, but it’s pretty nice, and the footprint is unbelievably small.

I just purchased Addictive Keys. It has a grand, an upright and a Rhodes. So far I’m very impressed. As far as the grand, there is a ton of control over microphone choice and placement, there are presets with a lot of variety, and it just sounds really nice. I have and love Addictive Drums, which can almost seem like you’re working with real drums. I get the same vibe with Addictive Keys.

There’s definitely a place for this song out there. It’ll sell. In the mean time you can work on it. If that’s a whistle sample I think it’s pretty good. Maybe a differently little melody would work better, or doing variations on the melody. (Unless this is just a straight one-shot sample as opposed to a keyboard-playable sampled whistle.) I have three tracks with whistling, two with what I think is actually synthesized whistling: http://audiojungle.net/item/spaghetti-twang/85986 http://audiojungle.net/item/sir-ukulele/155870 and one with real whistling: http://audiojungle.net/item/the-globetrotting-whistler/3777434 All three do well.

I could see using a little of the robotic piano in your song as an effect, but it’s too much for too long. It could use some dynamics, for sure. And yes, DO offer a version without vocals.

One of my biggest sellers is “Fifties Housewife,” and it has that retro feel: http://audiojungle.net/item/fifties-housewife/111487?ref=GarryONeal

All very different, but all very fifties. Hope you can use something.

Thanks, Garry O
