Hope that explains it to some degree....

yeah, encouraging info, thank you, my curiosity has been sufficiently quenched by your response. It's one thing to compare my sound quality with let's say the most popular commercial artists of the day, and think to myself, well hell, that should be expected from a studio, analogue engineered recording, produced by professionals with unlimited resources, which has been mastered ultimately, to achieve what I call 'radio punch' on machinery which cost, I dunno, anywhere from $7,000 on up, and so why should I think I can compete? But, it's another thing totally, to hear the quality of your songs among some others present here and still find my sound quality uncomfortably deficient sounding.

I am not talking about anything but the drop-off of volume or punch of my work compared to some others here.

The only thing I am left wondering is when you say you put the volumes of your tracks at 127, where is it that you do that exactly, and don't you worry about 'clipping' is it? Or, distortion? How do you offset it? If I raise the volume of my tracks over 100 in power tracks, my VU meter spends quite a bit of time in the red zone. Are you saying that you raise the volume of the BIAB tracks in BIAB?

Last tech question for me while in the 'User Showcase':)

Yes, in BIAB before rendering them. I bring up the little "mixer box" and set all the volumes full (to the far right). That has never caused any clipping - not even close.

Hope that helps.

THoroughly enjoyed listening...both as a casual "listener" and also as a BIAB user..I can't think of a single thing that I would change--arrangement, structure, lyric, performance, use of BIAB..all top-notch. Thanks--this kind of work encourages me to keep workin' at it!

Hi Floyd,

Yet another exceptional listen! When it comes to consistently professional work on all levels, you're the star of this forum, in my opinion. Really excellent. What stood out to me with this one was the rhyme scheme you used. While the rhymes satisfied my ear with a very satisfying lyrical journey, they did not impact on the conversational tone of the lyrics at all. Very clever writing.

All the best,
Noel

Wow, I'm finding it hard to keep up with all the new BIAB songs. I check about every week or so but I see that isn't enough.

This is another well written song. Great use of BIAB. I hope you are submitting these to some pros. You are going to hit it big with one of these. Great hooks. Great lyrics. Keep on trucking, dude. You'll sell one or more sooner or later.
