I'm sure some of you have heard this already, but thought I'd post it for those you haven't.

This lives some way "behind" Tara in the mix, doesn't it?

THAT is frigging brilllliant.  :D

I'll be playing it to Miss brom tonite, however she is still deffo following the classical route at present, and as much as she likes Frost* thinks that TDL is "out of control"  :D but IMHO there is nothing wrong with trying to to broaden those horizons.  ;)

OK, I'm going back for another go, Very nice one MF.

Wait, this is actually a violin?

Or just Jem's V-Synth? :P

The sample in the first post of this thread is indeed MadFiddler Mark's violin.

I cannot say with any certainty which other bits of TDL (that sound like violin) are actually violin, we may never know - such is Jem's (cape-less) wizardy with the Synth of V.

You have to have ears like a visually impaired hawk to hear very much of this particular solo on TDL but being able to hear it separately is a real treat.

Heh, Jem makes his mixes too damn busy. Milliontown sounded much better than EIMA to me... in some songs off EIMA there is simply too much going around at once, and we have only so much dynamic range to pick up. For example, the last song, when distortion kicks in, drums are so terribly overcompressed I can't continue listening (on headphones). Which is a shame, since I respect Jem's skills. But EIMA did not sound as good as Milliontown, mainly because of too busy a mix (depending on song)...

Hehe - just saw this. Thanks for the kind words all. It's, imo, the best solo I think I've done - and hadn't done any recording for a few years so all that bottled up frustration came out in those 32 bars  :twisted:

It's behind Tara's speech ("Ladies & Gentlemen, you can relax...").
You can hear some of the high notes towards the end and the last two notes of it mark the ...3-4 count into the "You are all lions" bit.
I think it was a collision of brilliant ideas and one had take a back seat. A tough call but the boss always makes the right one. :mrgreen:
