You know @Bill from November Sound  this would be the perfect opportunity to drop the Gatoon bomb


Lol :lol:
Nice one @Vince:praise:
I would use the word gatoon  ..... but, you see, I am not the singer. Rather, I must convince the singer to sing said word.   ::) When the singer is also your wife. .... it's interesting.   


So … I don't know how you all are doing on this challenge ….  @Dutchbeat  @oorlab  @realkevm  @1roomstudio  @robertkc    ….. but anyway I just finished all my tracking am now at the mixing stage!  And,  @lu77 I warned you about this - you won't even recognize your song when we are done with it!  :D  NS is making the balloon song sexy.  :loveit:    ha, ha  :lol:


I'm looking forward to hearing it man

@lu77 .......I definitely want to hear any of your songs!

Perhaps it would help to post one that you might feel reluctant to air out....this, of all places on the internet, is the place to do that as we are family here.
