That's a lot of details!! Some of them I wouldn't ever thought about myself alone.
Thankyou much for your time also!
You are a terrific perfectionist, don't you?
I will try to work on all them, but not right away... maybe before I will start building another replica-cover...
> The Eminent Plucks need a lot of work. This sound I found the hardest to do without the Eminent - even though it's like the simplest sound ever.... But I finally nailed it last year, after years at it.
Yep, JMJ's Eminent sound without a real Eminent is not so cheap easy to obtain.
Consider that it's a couple of months only that I'm after these sounds.
The reverb plays a key role, otherwise like Jarre's 30th Anniv version, the Oxygene 2 plucks sound like utter shite, amateur shite to be precise.
Is it the one of the Live In Your Living Room?
So don't use any chorus on the sound itself and absolutely make sure you have keyboard tracking turned on, which ever synth you are using for this sound.
Hollow Sun String Synths, inside Kontakt 4.
I don't remember if I removed or left the chorus on it.
Perhaps I adjusted wrong the vibrato I added this week?

Was using 371 ms. I liked it more than 350 ms...
But during all time I was doing the song at 86.750 bpm. A few days ago I accelerated it at 88 bpm.
I can't say much more than that for now.[/quote]
you already wrote a lot anyway, thankyou.
The drums need a lot of work too - I've never heard anyone nail the drums correctly in a cover.[/quote]
I agree on your point.
Till now I used only Elektrostudio Rhythm, but my intention is to build a kit in Battery3 choosing among all Minipops sounds I have (different libraries I have)
For the patterns initially I tried to replicate the song ones: they change along the track, have too much Guiro and too few Quiha hits for my tastes, and I liked to hear more Quiha hits, like in Matt's or Radek's covers.
It's a personal choice this one. So I went for a different pattern from JMJ's one, and I believe I will keep it: I don't think I will spend time redoing his one.
Will work on the sounds instead, I will need them for other tracks too.
