I started writing my thoughts on the song and it's sounds as I have been working a lot on it lately. However, for some unknown reason, when I clicked the submit button it prompted me to log in, although I had already logged in before. Maybe I wrote to much...who knows? I will lay them down later on as it's hard for me to write everything again from the start.
Regarding this sample, it is not bad at all but it sounds a little digital to me, it needs more body and warmth IMO. Have you created it yourself or have you sampled another keyboard?

created. it is digital. I can try to fatten the sound a little maybe. I use Logic Pro. One way maybe is to detune it a little. Let me play around with it some

I use headphones. I have created a sound for it with my nord wave and I'm very happy with it. I use a sample from the nord's library archive (I think it's a NL2x synth brass, I will check later) layered with a saw wave one octave lower to fatten the sound a bit, in lower amplitude, slightly detuned. I applied some chorus to create unison, some reverb, a subtle delay and overdrive (!!!) but on the lowest possible setting. That way the sound doesn't distort but comes out more powerful and solid! I will upload an mp3 later and if you like it I can try to sample it.

studies show that once people hit 30 they have a 50/50 chance at distinguishing mp3 from wav.

Ha ha, I'm 42! By the way, I forgot to mention that the trickiest thing was to find the right combination for filter and amp envelopes, all the magic is there IMO.

Here is a draft recording of my sound, The sample I used is the NL2x glass brass, from the nord sample library archive, with all those modifications I wrote in the other post. There is "tail" in the ending of each note that blends well with the chords on the left hand.
