A nit: the mix lacks punch. Maybe I'm just used to everyone compressing the hecks out of their songs, but I'd love to hear a louder mix.



Couldnt agree more. Superb!

I also think that the backing needed a bit of Mastering "Ooomph". Its really good but just needs (IMO only) a bit of a compression boost.

BTW - how did you get hat octaving sounding Lead line please? did you use a Pitchfork or something?

Cheers

Thanks rayc for the listen and comment! I was purposely shooting for a late 70’s Doobies’ ala Michael McDonald sound on this (if only I could sing like him-one of my favorites). Anyway, I always wanted to try one in that vein and got a little inspiration and went for it. Thanks, T

Hi Torrey.

Sort of an unusual style but very very good.
What a rich sound.

Cheers.

This is great! Got that late 1970's radio sound. England Dan, Doobie Brothers, that sort of thing. Well done.

Thanks Hugh for all those kind words! I also try to make the intro very inviting to the listener and set the stage for the lyrics. To me, along with the chorus, the intro is a vital part of a good song! Thanks again, T

Thanks John for your comments! Oddly enough, back in the day, I never listened to or appreciated Todd Rundgren. I have only recently over the last few years come to appreciate his music and style. It probably does show up in some of my compositions. Thanks, T

User Blog - Recording and Processing Vocals Using RealBand...

Joanne Cooper's latest blog post is a "start to finish" of how she records and processes vocals for her songs using her three "go-to" programs: RealBand, Melodyne, and Nectar from Izotope (with a little help from Band-in-a-Box...)!

Check out this blog post here.

Musician Brent Mason in the Studio Recording RealTracks!

Before leaving Nashville, Tobin caught up with Brent Mason recording some future RealTracks in the studio.

We can't wait to hear them!

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
