    LIke the bass sound you've got going there Gary. Sounded quite cool through headphones - my PC speakers don't do it justice.

    Thanks Paul.

    Agreed. There's a lot of subtle harmonics in the piece and it takes decent equipment to give it a fair listen.

    EQ settings matter a lot with this one as well.

    Gary ;)

    Haven't heard any of your new music for a while, and it's always a pleasure! Have to say though, I'm listening on my laptop and the bass didn't really come through (unsurprising I guess, the speakers aren't great) so I must give it a try on my PC later :)

    By all means give it a listen on a decent sound system.

    The Bandcamp version is noticeably clearer. However you are limited to only 3 plays on Bandcamp before you have to pay up and buy the song or the album.

    BTW, how's your recovery been coming along Becky?

    Gary ;)

    Really good thanks! I had a second blood patch earlier this month and it seems to have done the trick. I got myself a fitbit recently so I can make sure I'm doing enough and gradually increasing my activity levels :)

    I'm so happy to hear that you're fully on the mend.

    Apparently sometimes the doctors know what they're doing after all :)

    As for my tune, if you don't have a PC hooked up to a decent sound system a good quality set of headphones will do in a pinch.

    To be honest, headphones may actually be the best way to hear this song.

    Gary ;)

    At first I played it on my mobile phone when i woke up (in sleepy mode) and I thought . . "Okay but not one of his best"
    Then Paul said . .
    So I tried it again (after my ablutions lol) on my PC which has a sub woofer and a thumpin bass sound adjustment.
    That certainly activated your tune.

    Good work.

    One day I will get up the courage to post one or two of mine.:rolleyes:

    Boring day coming up now being Good Friday. Great oportunity to play some music.

    Happy Easter everyone. Take care and have a great holiday if you are going away.:)

    Yeah, the quality of the equipment you play it on has a huge effect on music.

    I guess that's why back in the 60's it was all treble notes and twangy guitars cause everyone was listening to AM radio on a 2 inch transistor radio speaker.

    Thanks for the comeback Ray.

    And a Happy Easter to all here as well. :)

    Gary ;)

    I'll dig mine out... you have reminded me that I need to get some new ones! I've got a PSVR and I want some that are compatible with that, but are also noise cancelling for in the future when we travel. Crying kids / arguing families / people in general being inconsiderately loud are all things that drive me up the wall!

    Go for it :D

    I'll second that - hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

    I like the melody! I've got my 2 computers in my music studio and they're both connected to a pair of Edirol studio monitors. I also listen through a par of Sennheiser HD 280 PRO headphones. My studio monitors don't actually have enough bass for me so when I can I'm going to get one of those Monoprice sub woofers.
    Both computers first go into my old Presonus Studiolive 16-4-2 mixer. It has controls on it so I can easily alter the volumes for the headphones and the monitors.
    Good job Gary!

    Thanks Jeremy...

    The Monoprice Sub works really well in my studio supplementing the BX5A Monitors.

    Lacking a sub, I'd say a decent set of headphones is the best option.

    I'm really happy you liked it.

    Gary ;)
