Depeche Mode ey,.... Well, I don't immediately see the resemblance.
Although I'm a big fan of their earlier (80s) work.
Thanks for the positive comment, yes, this was one that somehow got forgotten. The kind of song that you always want to post but then another new song comes up which you want to post first, ha ha.

Thanks again!

Rob

Rob and Anne-Marie, excellent song and we have to wonder why you kept this hidden from us for so long!

A really enjoyable listen, & fantastic vision to go along with it.

The sax break works very well.

Thank you Robert much appreciated!

I always love what you do with your chord structures and key changes. Everything sounds great and the sax is lovely.

Wonderfully written, sung, and mixed!

OK, great song, yes, classic, RnAm, yes, extremely well mixed yes, of course BUT..

I have a much more important and urgent question to ask that I need a fairly immediately answer to Rob.

The awesome guitar effects you are using at the beginning sound very similar to Paul Simon's great intro on Father and Daughter. I have to know your effects chain dude. Whatcha doin' there man.

smile

Immediate response requested if that is not too much pressure.

Okay, we're gonna wrap this one up.
Thanks to everyone who commented so positively on our song!

David (sorry I didn't respond earlier), I used the following plug-ins on the guitar in the intro:
Classic compressor and Classic Delay (Short delay time) both from Kjaerhus Audio (free plug-ins). I also used a chorus ( don't remember quite which one, probably was the built in one from Cubase).
Finally we did a remaster on this one (the song is quite old) with Ozone 7.
Hope this helps?

Rob

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie

What a fabulous song! Took us back to about 1988, or thereabouts. Fabulous arrangement and your vocal shines! The sax was a real treat - fit perfectly. It's as though you personally hired a sax player to come in just for this song.

The percussions really add to the mix. This is our favorite from you guys so far. We totally loved it!

Wishing you both well.

Alan & Di

Thanks guys for this very positive comment.
We were kind of lucky with the saxophone solo, which is actually a combination of two different solos merged together.
The program did a marvelous job here ;-)

Early production, late production and all between -- you do have a signature sound but never formulaic. Janice and I had watched the video last week and we both noted the relative rarity that you use still shots. They were very effective indeed and given your mastery with video clips it comes as no surprise.

The vocal, composition, mix and the sax are all excellent. It sounds tremendous on our monitors.

Old or new -- congrats on a great tune!

Hello Rob and Anne Marie,
I am totally surprised that I am not hearing your work every time I go into A movie theater. This is top of the line stuff. Vocals are awesome!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
