Comfort

This simple song was made as a musical comfort for a friend. Dreams and reality do not always meet, but comfort can be shared in low doses. After a long time I had a song which was perfect for RnAM to sing. And once again they did excellent work.

RealDrums: NashvillePop16

RealTracks:
Acoustic Guitar #1595, #1676
Nylon Guitar #2200
Pedal Steel #2667
Electric Bass #1036
Electric Piano #910
Sax Soprano #1061
String Quartet #2335

Vocals: RnAM

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017. Mixing with vocals by RnAM

Lyrics:

I have seen your prison cell
but don't have tools to cut your ropes
you have seen the freedom I have
but I don't want to awake any false hopes
you need to find your way out
you can do it, no doubt
but if you get lost
I'll be there healing wings of your dreams.

I can't build you a home in the woods
I can't give you a life in a rich neighborhood
can't get you a speed boat, or a fancy car
I can't take you to Venus or Mars
but I can give you a glimpse of the stars
chords from my heart
I can give you comfort.

You told me about your grief
I've tried my best to empathize
but I can't be the savior you need
it took me too long to realize.
Just find a moment, time to mourn
find the reason for each thorn
and when you get up
I'll be there spreading balm to your wounds.

[Chorus]

If you feel lonely in the middle of the crowd
or if you feel cast-off under a rainy cloud
if you still want to meet me at the coffee bar
I let you be the center star.

[Chorus]

What a great collaboration. This is a really beautiful melody, and delivered with marvelous vocals.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

It was a pleasure to work with Janne again on one of his (relatively simpler ;-))songs.
This one in particular was very melodic, we love the vocal melody.
The song has a very nice dreamy atmosphere.

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie for your excellent work once more. Always nice to work with you and good that you also liked the song and the melody, so the working was probably not so unpleasant wink Yes, this one was simpler, do you want more challenging next time? wink

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.

Macworld Review - Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

Keith White has just shared his Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac review with us: Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

While working with the new Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac version, Keith spent some time using the enhanced Song Titles browser feature within the StylePicker - make sure you check out his song links to hear his results!

I have used Band-in-a-Box for over 20 years professionally and have found it one of the most professional and useful programs in my arsenal. The 2017 version takes a great program to new heights.

Pros: vastly improved user control of interface; fabulous range of new sounds from all over the world: useful improvements to Song Titles Browser and Style Picker.

Cons: (as usual) can you have too much of a good thing?
-Keith White, Macworld Australia
