Wow!!! This is truly exceptional. Great songwriting, great arrangement and excellent production. Everything worked for me. This sound is professional all the way. You've got my standing ovation.

All the best,

Great song Robert! Loved the lyrics, changes and your excellent voice.

I'd be interested in some information on the recording especially: is that you playing the guitar leads? Some cool stuff there!

Mix-wise for me the voice is too prominent compared with the other instruments so it sounds separate, especially as its reverb is different. The lead guitar is a main feature (occupying the same if not more time than the vocal) and yet stays in the background.

A haunting and catchy song though, thanks for bringing it to us!

Hi 90 db,

Very good song you have here.

Really enjoyed it. Sounded very professional.

Well done.

Give us a clue as to the Real Tracks you used please.

Best regards
George

Noel,

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for the help with BIAB.



Skyline,

Ditto. Except for the vocal, the entire thing is BIAB/RB. As for the mix, I really didn't spend too much time on it - this is just a songwriting demo I'm pitching to a guy, so the vocal was the most important thing.


George,

I'll have to look up the RB tracks that were used. They were just default tracks, nothing special.

These programs are a blast.

Thanks for listening.



Bob

That is certainly an understatement.

Now here you nailed it.



Great job on the vocals. It does sound like you are having fun.

Oh, by the way, how do you song writers handle it when you song title matchs an existing classic?

As to your first comment: I have been using the program for about a month. I apologize if the production lacks the sophistication you obviously possess.




As for the song title that 'matchs' an existing classic, I assume you are referring to Clapton's title. You might, perhaps, be referring to one of these others:







This is just a partial list. There are 237 songs titled "Bad Love", and this only includes songs copyrighted after 1978.




Thanks for the enlightened comment though.

I sense a little attitude, my apologies if I offended, certainly not my intention at all.

My mistake. You obviously meant that comment to be complimentary.

Ya, I was trying to convey how nice it all sounded. Darn short cryptic comments - sometimes they just mess us up in these forums.

Glad we got that squared away. All is good. Thanks.

Thanks Mario. Every time I write a blues, I ask myself "Can Blue men sing the Whites?"

#TipTuesday - the Melody/Soloist Sequencer in Band-in-a-Box for Windows

Ever notice that green 'SEQ' button in Band-in-a-Box? This little guy allows control over multi-channel MIDI information on the Melody or Soloist track!
(for example, you might want a single instrument out of a MIDI file you import into Band-in-a-Box, so the Melody Sequencer allows you to rechannel, or delete specific channels)

We've created a video based on this feature with the Melody track (but it works the same with the Soloist track!) which can be viewed here:
www.pgmusic.com/?vid=OejFpi4TjIQ.

Learn even more about this feature by viewing this document (taken from the Help Menu within the program).
