In the summer of 2016 I created this whole album using BB and RB for ALL the instrumentation. I did all the lead vocals and many of the back ground ones plus I had some vocal help from a friend on a couple of tracks.

Unfortunately I did NOT note what I used on any of the tracks as I was under a severe time crunch.

I had 6 weeks to put together this album before hitting the road going east to Nova Scotia...

I will try to go back and make a note of what was used and where as I know that is something that many users are interested in.

But in the meantime have a listen to this album and let me know what you think...

Tony,

This sounds great. Great job! By the way, I had a chance to meet one of the guys who wrote Three Wooden Crosses. You really did a super job with it.

Tony,

A really nice collection. All the songs are very well done.

I listened to "Three Wooden Crosses" and then parts of most of the others. The productions and mixes are all quite nice.

Your vocals are terrific. I'd be interested in your recording/processing chain for vocals - they are very much "in the pocket".

Impressive. Good luck with the record!

Tony,

This sounds really great. Your vocals are outstanding, and the arrangements and mixes of the tracks I've listened to are excellent. You certainly know what you're doing in this arena!

All the best,
Noel

I'm excited to listen to this! For the time being, I listened to track that is suggested when you first open the link - Three Wooden Crosses. There's nothing like some nice, relaxing gospel. The vocals are on point, and I loved the addition of the harmonies in the background. It's perfectly catchy as well - exactly the kind of tune that is really easy to groove to and sing along with.

I'm stoked to listen to the rest! Thanks for sharing smile

What a great album. Wishing you great success with it.

"Unfortunately I did NOT note what I used on any of the tracks as I was under a severe time crunch."

You obviously do not need help with mixing, your work is excellent. But I will share a tip with you (and others) of a 'how to book' by Fett titled "Fett's Mixing Roadmap" published in 2013.

Fett outlines and explains his 7 steps to mixing music in the studio. He refers to them as phases.

Phase One is step by step instructions to his Environment Setup.

It is his data organization, drive and folder structure on his computer. It's how,why and where he saves his projects. I've never seen a better template for archiving recording material and in my opinion, that chapter alone is worth the modest cost of his book.

I recommend the book and think you and others will find his method of data organization and storage very beneficial in your future projects.

I found the whole book to be informative and contains a lot of useful instructions and techniques. The book is directed toward the home and project studio owner, so many here on the forum may benefit from it.

I have no affiliation or involvement with Fett or his business. I simply find his book to be useful to people who enjoy and utilize home studios. His data organization is a good example and came to mind as I read the posters comments.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

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.
