Achieved

Commentary Student response

This exemplar has been created using Logic Pro v8.

This exemplar has met Achievement criteria as it has fulfilled the required outcomes, namely; recording, capturing, editing, mixing, playing back, bounce to stereo mp3 mix, as stored from the logic pro 8 file and mix down bounce.

This sequence has standard feel of pop RnB genre. Keeping the exemplar in Achievement criteria is the somewhat mechanical rendition of the sequence, with the basis of the progression only, initially on the harmonic rhythmic, then with addition of the rhythmic feel (at 19 seconds).

The piano/bass/drums parts are musically accurate with some creative licence in the simplified drum part.
