For this track I used several realtracks to get the feel I needed. This is a song of encouragement for someone who has placed very little value on their self worth. I hope it is an encouragement to someone! Lyrics are in the YouTube video. Thanks for listening, Torrey.

Hi Torrey,

Another excellent production from you. There's a lot going on here but it all fits in perfectly. Good message! Your technical skills equal your performance skills. That's a great combination. Super classy all the way.

I saw you mentioned you used a Carvin electric guitar for one of your personal tracks. You may recall when I PMs you about my friend, Buddy Keele who lives in your home town. Buddy is his nickname but his real first name is Carvin ... and yes, his father named him after the Carvin Music Company. I thought that was pretty cool to see you mention that as I thought about my friend.

Again, super job on this. loved the video, too! Wishing you the very best,

Alan & Di

You have another very cool tune Torrey. Love the effects you used with your voice. Gave it a Dire Straits vibe for me. Super vocal and guitar was excellent...

Torrey,

This is terrific music. A solid write. Extraordinary melody! So "musical". Really enjoyed the listen.

Super arrangement and production. As David said it has a "Boston feel" to it - really well done.

There are a few places where the vocal gets "swamped" by the instrument tracks. Might just need the vocal to be raised a bit at that point. Otherwise, this is extraordinary. Really enjoyed it - an excellent listen...

gospel rock, or pop?
Well, you sure make it sound like a pro.
Very nice chord progression, and cool vocals as always.
In the mid-regions your voice often reminds me of one of the singers of Toto.
should be a compliment I think ;-)

Wow, Torrey, that was quite impressive! All of the personal touches you added really work together to give the song a cohesiveness that I don't hear in every song!

Regarding the guitar harmonies... did you play the parts separately? Or did you use a harmonizer? I'm impressed either way, because in my opinion it's not easy to get good-sounding auto harmony. But on listening again, I'm guessing you played both parts because the two notes don't always go in the same direction as a scalic harmony tends to do.

Parts of the song reminded me of George Harrison's style.

I'm always happy to see songs of faith, and to see people using their talent as a ministry. Good job, and I look forward to hearing more from you!

Thanks for the comment David! For the solo guitar parts I played twin leads and double tracked the primary line with about a 10 millisecond delay on it.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training!

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!

User Post - Save as Video

#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.
