Hi

Really enjoyed Chris's lyrics.
Not too simple not too mysterious
Raising questions and setting the atmosphere.
And the cleanness and precision of the lead guitar.
Good listening .
Thumbs up.

Cheers.

What a great listen! I don't get a chance to listen or post very often these days so, I'm delighted I got to hear this one. So sweet in every way!

Alan


Alan, I know how busy you have been the last few weeks so thanks for taking the time to listen and comment on our song, I appreciate it!

First thought - someone pays attention to the stereo field. Nice.

Cool Santana sound - evocative. Nice mix - great balance everything sits nicely. Subtle harmonies. Drums sound awesome without overwhelming anything.

Fun listen.

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

When I saw that from Tom, I knew this was gonna be special.

Indeed.

Y'all just keep steppin' it up.

Super guitar. Digging that percussion, too...

Thanks, Floyd smile

I have a new mix up now, still not 100% happy with it, but it’s getting close I think.

Great song.

Peter


Thanks very much, Peter! Still not 100% happy with it, I think I've remixed it six or seven times since the original upload. But, getting close now I think.

Thanks, Scott! I'm always messing around trying new things on the guitar tracks, sort of a holy grail thing I guess.

Thanks so much! The production side of things mostly takes practice, the more you do it the better you get. And this forum has helped a lot, there are some real pro level mixers here and most are happy to offer advice if you ask.

This is one of those where after the last note we just look at each other and go WOW!

The percussion, guitar and vocal performance are amongst the very best we've heard here.

Just love the way your guitar and the vocals sit in the mix. Right in the sweet spot.

Great!

Thanks, Bud!

I'm still tweaking actually, but it is almost where it needs to be I think.

Yes, you are right about that!

I uploaded my final attempt yesterday. Ended up switching out the drum set, this one sits in the mix better. And changed the panning on the acoustic and a couple other small changes. Time to move on I think smile

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
