Hello everyone, here's a song written about our dear friend and the emptiness left after the loss of two sons and finally his wife. Marinus played the string parts on a Alesis QS-8 and string patches were from cubase. All other real tracks were from BIAB 2012 as well as all the harmonies. We tried the string patches in BIAB but felt they just didn't give us what we were looking for, so we played them ourselves. Are you listening Mr. Gannon!!!!!. It took quite a while for this one but we are happy with the result. Thanks to PG music gang for allowing us to expand our dreams. As always comments welcome. Please enjoy. Here is the link:

Nelson and Marinus,

What a sad, and touching song! Well written, seems to capture the situation about as well as a song can. Nicely and tastefully done. My prayers go out for your friend.

Steve

Hey Nelson & Marinus,

Nicely done.
I think this is a song most people can relate to in one way or another.
I can't even imagine what life would be like with out my wife and kids. My prayers go out to your friend.

Nelson & Marinus,

I'm having a hard time typing this. My wife and I still have each other
after 47 years, but this is always in the back of our minds.

What a beautiful set of lyrics, your performing of the song, and the
backend music, its all a bit much for me.

I'm so happy to listen to you folks beautiful music, but sad for whats to come.

A true love story in the lyrics !

Thank you so much for you folks hard work putting this together and sharing it with
us.

Nicely done all around - solid song, well written, well arranged, and well sung. Good work on the strings.

The only thing that stood out was the lyric "Stares at the pictures on the wall", which seemed cramped by single syllable.

Very understated arrangement - very clean and uncluttered. A bit too understated for my taste - I'd be tempted to bring the piano more forward - but there's really nothing that needs any fixing.

Yeah, I'd love to have RealStrings too...

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Nelson & Marinus,

This song had the same impact on me as the Pixar film UP (the first ten minutes)

This deserves a very warm "Well Done"

Best regards
George

P.S. Just in case you don't know the film above - it shows (without words) the life of two people meeting in childhood and then getting married, having a baby (which was lost) and the onward journey to old age (the wife passes and he is left alone)

Band-in-a-Box 2014 for Windows - Swedish Update!

Band-in-a-Box 2014 Svensk manual för Windows finns nu för nedladdning.
Download...

Det finns några nya spännande funktioner i Band-in-a-Box 2014. Vi har gjort om GUI, snyggare och med bättre känsla, och många nya tidssparande funktioner tillagda. Nya Verktygsknappar, Sång/Stil områden, on-screen mixer, omgjort ackordblad med handskrivna "verkligt" utseende på ackordfonter med mera. Du kan nu skapa egna RealTracks – vi kallar dessa Användarspår – och du kan använda dem som vanliga RealTracks. Spela in dig (i en DAW), tillsammans med några BB sånger, lägg dem i mappen Användarspår, och du är klar! Det finns en bekväm Snabblyssning av stilar, RealTracks, och RealDrums så att du snabbt kan lyssna på dem för att välja ut de bästa till din sång. Loopar stöder nu Acidized Loops, så att tempo/ackordgrundton nu är automatisk. Stöd för FretLight® gitarr har lagts till. Du kan nu höra Band-in-a-Box sjunga, med inbyggt stöd tillagd för den populära online vokalsynten "Sinsy." En Legato Stråkar funktion optimerar automatiskt MIDI stråkstämmor för att undvika att spela om samma toner. Allt kan bli starkare – en ny Master Volym låter dig höja volymen i alla sånger med en enda inställning.

Video - Simple RealTracks

Most RealTracks in Band-in-a-Box have the option to play in simple mode, which means less embellishment, alteration, more consistent rhythm, and less fills. Learn how easy it is to use this feature here.
