Your sudden intuition that an acoustic piano would greatly enhance this new version was an inspirational moment of transporting musical clarity, in my opinion, at least. The piano along with Ms. Mira's voice crying out the imaginative lyrics turns "One" into a duet of sound and singing. To be emotionally moved by this composition required only a single listen, after which I wanted to just sit still and replay the performance in my head and heart so I could keep it there, close to me.
The cello and viola in concert with the RealTracks nearly obscures the fact that the piece was created using Band-in-a-Box. I think it could cause someone, anyone to argue that it couldn't have been produced with software, no matter how sophisticated or accomplished that software is. It simply sounds like it was performed and recorded in concert hall. I expected to hear applause when it ended, after a long pause held by a stunned audience.
I don't know how you did it, but you did. This is what the word "beautiful" was meant to describe.
Lost in it,
LOREN


Thanks Loren, I really appreciate your kind and beautiful words and deep analysis of my song smile I can hear your applause after the song wink Nice to hear that this didn't sound like a BIAB produced, I agree that those string RealTracks are excellent.

Hello, Janne

Really beautiful Melody!
Earlier version is also very nice, but this version tells straight the merit of good melody, it is my favorite.
The chord progression is also very nice as usual.
Mira's vocal is very sweet.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

WONDERFUL!!! I can really hear the Cranberries here. Maybe my favorite vocal by Miira!! (and that's saying a LOT). Wonderful chord changes, and I love the rolling beat-you just get lost in it. GREAT stuff hear Janne!! Take care. Greg

Wow - the difference between the two versions is night and day! I definitely prefer this reason, personally. The lyrics come through a lot more prominently I found. Not to mention - the vocal performance is absolutely stunning. It sounds so heartfelt and sincere.

Truly amazing job here. Thanks for sharing smile

I missed the first version, but I'm glad this one's making the rounds again.

The piano does an excellent job showcasing a lovely melody.

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

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
