thanks for the listen and comment sir!

as for the mic, i might just keep that info to myself for now cos i might also put together a kinda "mic shoot out" as i have maybe 6 mics so i will play the same thing on each mic and upload here on a separate thread for a non bias view on each mic and recording quality, then reveal all at a later time what particular mics were used.

Really very good indeed. Lovely melodic lines through the changes that reminds me of Dexter playing ballads.:cool:
Have you done a CD?:)

hi
very flattering comment, respect to you, i am just "doing my thing" i guess, i just really love playing the saxophone.
as for CD that is a long term project, i am to make a whole load of recordings then filter them down then re record them selected again, i am actually thinking to do a ballads CD too as well as a mixed bag of stuff CD.

By 15 seconds I knew that I was going to like this piece!. It has a very simple backing that just sits in the background and allows you to waft that tenor around the tune like a graceful ballerina, effortless, smooth and beautiful!

I really loved everything about that - the beautiful modern tone, the ideas, the backing and the quality of the recording.

Give us more !

again another big thank you, a very inspiring comment..

the recording quality i am working on and trying to make better all the time, (same as in the sax playing, non stop journey) i just spent a few days grafting and building and totally revamped my home studio and to me it has been worth it, it just feels cleaner sounding and more natural with the new mic and sound booth.

more to follow sir :)

Fab sound Ian - very much the tone and style I'm aiming for, very contemporary - loving this over a standard (I find it difficult not to fall into very old fashioned style o_O when I play standards! ) I don't know much about mics as you know :confused2: but sounds really good to me! :thumb:
