    That was a great cover!

    Holy hell there's a lot of midi stuff going on there!

    If you wouldn't have mentioned it, I would never have guessed any of it was midi ...

    The vocals were really good too!

    I listened to it on headphones and laptop ... it's a good mix, it sounded good on both. Don't have the Yammy's hooked up at the moment so I couldn't listen on the big guns.

    I gib it a fumbs ub!

    Oh ... BTW ... what did you use to record this? X1, S1 ... ?

    Bub,

    Daryl and I both use X1.

    I think for he most part if one uses MIDI one should mention it (especially when it's good MIDI).

    I considered doing a live bass but since the song it self is basic pop rock and the CW-SI-Bass sounded so good I just left it.

    Now if we were going to steer away from the original arrangement we prolly would not have used much MIDI.

    Sweet.

    I agree. I mention it too, and I also mention if I used anything pre-done off the net. A couple of Christmas songs I posted, I leached the midi drum track out of another tune on the net. Some of that Jazz stuff is very hard to do if you aren't in to Jazz.
    I considered doing a live bass but since the song it self is basic pop rock and the CW-SI-Bass sounded so good I just left it.
    I really like SI-Bass. I've used the SI-Strings too. I've been layering it with the strings on my Korg X5. It's old, but some of those analog sounds are great. I've been layering the Strings and Piano on it with SI-Strings and Tru-Piano's. 
    Now if we were going to steer away from the original arrangement we prolly would not have used much MIDI.
    Glad you didn't. This is really good!

    Gotta hit the hay. G'night.

    Bub.

    great cover! made me reminisce about when i was just a pup & that video w/ the twins was on mtv in the 80s. 
    you captured the spirit of the tune wonderfully. the alternating stereo pans of the 'da-da-da-da' parts are very cool. 

    nice job on this :)

    Watched the original duo at the Cambridge Folk festival coverage on the TV here a couple of days ago.

    Not a bad cover.

    Nice work guys. Don't think I know the original, but this one kiks. Production is quite tight and crips.
    Nice vocs. I do think the lead voc could come up a tad.

    Ed, does the SI bass give you ANY velocity control? Everytime I've tried it, there is NO velocity (soft to loud) at all.
    I'm thinkin maybe it's my controller.

    Great work.

    Never heard it before.... so.... based on that.... I have no other point of reference. 

    Nice job on the tune.

    Thats really good! Must be some of the best I've heard you do Bapu! Seem like the pair of you can make some serious magic;) I in particular liked the vocals. It sounds like you're having fun!

    That song is one of my all time favourites!

    Another vote for not knowing that you used midi instruments.   I've always liked this song but now. . . .  I'm diggin it even more.  AWESOME collab!
