Hi guys. Been busy learning a new DAW Studio One.
This is my first effort with studio one. Very happy with the sound quality although
this song may be a little quiet. Let me know what you think.
Rob

Alone Again

Its four in the morning and my tear drops keep falling your gone again.
You just cant stay with me and so you will leave me I'm alone again with out you.

As I stare ceiling your harsh words keep on stinging my heart they do.
Oh I need you near me to hold and to cheer me alone again with out you

Chorus
Please lonely nights wont you stay away don't come back again.
You've befriended me but I don't need you here when I'm all alone.

Bridge

Those minuets keep passing and I keep on asking are we through this time.
Oh I could not take it my heart you would break it two and throw it away

Hi Rob,

Sounds pretty danged good to me. You are so good with these ballads and the big band standards. The mix is clean and very well balanced. The vocal oohs and aahs are a real nice touch on the chorus well as the response b/g vocals. Really nice!

Alan

Great vocal! Background vocal are a nice touch too, makes the song special. Definitely sounds like something Elvis might have done as others have mentioned.
Mix sounds good at this end through my studio headphones.

Rob, I don't know why "easy" listening has such a bad reputation...this is surely 'easy' to listen to, and a great pleasure. We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion.

It's got the feel you were intending..your voice fits perfectly, and the background ooh's were right on. A great slow dancing song.

One suggestion...I would have liked to hear a little solo in the break around the 1:45 mark.

Thanks for posting!

Most excellent. Everything sounds great on our monitors.

You own this genre.

As Tano Music said "We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion." Dittos to that.

Enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed this one, Rob smile Very reminiscent of the 50's and 60's - I'm feeling some Elvis vibes here. I particularly enjoyed the background harmonies. They flow incredibly well and help the emotion hit harder.

Really well done! Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi Blue. I'm working hard to improve the quality of my recording.
I really feel that studio one is going to help me do that.
Thanks for listening. Rob

A really nice song, well written and nicely done. I also was waiting for a guitar or pedal solo that wasn't there, but still very well done.

Rob,
Very classy vocal and love the background oohs.
The mix sounds good and clear ( maybe a little quiet, but its a low key song).
Enjoyed.

Robert

Rob, that studio one certainly seems to work for you.
You've come up with a very pro-sounding song with very cool backing vocals as well.
Nice, nice, nice

Superb vocals and vocal arrangement. A real Elvis vibe as noted by others.

Starting Young with Band-in-a-Box®

Look at what we came across! The site https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/ posted this interview with Norway's Lido, which includes the following:

Question: How did you get into producing?

Lido: "Growing up in the mountains on the west coast of Norway there wasn’t very much to do. My dad downloaded this music making software for me on his computer, I think it was called “band in a box”. I just started making beats on there, I was about nine at the time. I didn’t realise I was producing, it felt more like a video game. It wasn’t until I got Cubase when I was 11 that I really started producing."

How great is that!?!

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.
