Hi all, here is another song written by Marinus and recorded by me. Most of the tracks are from Band in A Box but are all midi as real tracks weren't available at the time. The strings pads I think were played by me. The vocal is my nephew Kenny Driscoll who also did the harmonies and a bit of live piano. Song is about a roadie who worked for a band and fell in love with a girl from Jamestown NY during a one night stand. Gosh how often did that happen????. Hope you enjoy this and any comments are most welcome

Nelson and Marinus

Kenny has a beautiful voice. I would've mixed the harmonies just a little bit lower volume wise in the mix.

Still a really nice sound.

Enjoyed it.

Thanks Josie,Tommy and Steve for the comments. Josie I agree about the harmony, unfortunately the recorder used to record this is gone and along with it were the master tracks so it will have to stay the way it is. Thanks for listening.

Cheers

Nelson and Marinus

+1 here.

I would love to hear a remix with realtracks, especially drums. But this is a top notch performance.

Da kid can SANG!

I agree, would loved to have heard this with real tracks and not midi, and a whole lot less reverb of the vox.

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
