Alan Thanks Al, I prefer the more melodious classical music & opera myself. Hope Di's ok ?

Noel, This is a delight. A strong write. Perhaps your best, (in my opinion). The first verse paints a picture of a moment in time which leads perfectly to the "philosophy" of the chorus. The chorus then states its purpose succinctly, simply, unequivocally... (the began/dance rhyme is nice, fresh). The second verse presents a nice expanded view, again with nicely painted pictures. The bridge expands out further. Nice. All leading back to the chorus as they should. The tag lines are a

Great message! And a great song, nice melody and I love the vocal and harmonies. Nice job on the production and mix, as usual everything sounds perfect. Really enjoyed this one! I've listened a few times and will listen again. Collaborations are the best, well done all!

Tangmo, thanks! Surely an interesting take on things! Ok, the quality part is... When share my tunes with close friends, I ask of them to give me a honest opinion. In most cases they share a valid complaint...They are having difficulty understanding lyrics because they say: It sounds like you are in barrel.. Why? Now I know..FeQueNcY ClAShes...it only took me 20+ years to understand the correlation Another aspect what I consider a "quality" is adding parts / sounds / vocal elem

2bSolo - My base computer is a Dell Special Edition XPS. The Intel 7700K processor has been over-clocked a bit to a constant 4.6MHz. My over clock speed is limited by thermal issues and without going to water cooling or more, I cannot run it stable past the current speed...although there seems to be quite a noticeable performance increase at 4.7Ghz, I just can't hold it steady there. With 4 RAM slots the computer can handle 64Gb but I think that the 32 that I have is more than needed. The

This, in my opinion, is possibly the best blues song that has ever been posted to this forum, loved everything about it! Peter just absolutely nails the guitar, absolutely perfect! Great "feel", great tone, great chops. Love the production and mix on this, Bud, and the lyrics are fun too. And Janice has got it going on big time!! Listened on soundcloud a few days ago, enjoyed watching the video this time around Well done guys and gal!

Graham, very nice composition. The classical nature of the harmonic movement and melody fit perfectly with your choice of instrumentation. The choir choice added great texture to the piano element. Resulting track is exactly what it was meant to be--ideal for restful listening. Well done!

Misha… The soup is ready to be served! What an interesting, creative song! As I’ve said before, your particular life-view presents such interesting word combinations and choices, ones that I don’t think are normally heard in song lyrics. I thought the whole concept was great, and the execution is very well done. I especially liked the wordless singing that you added at the end, and the sound effects are perfect additions. Thanks for sharing your creative work!

Noel… I like the way that you built this song… Thanks for explaining your architecture with the loop.. I think that that approach works very well, and probably replicates how someone would actually play, versus an entire track of time repeated sequences, like RTs sometimes yield. I liked your strong, clean vocal, and I especially liked the little tag that you added to the end to wind things up. Great work!

Love the positive nature of this! The world needs more feel good songs I think This is great, Noel, the mix sounds fabulous through the 'phones. That Bossa percussion track is the cats meow! And that guitar RT sounds great too, very interesting the way you put it together. And possibly your best vocal performance, especially during the chorus. My new favorite of yours I think, enjoyed very much!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
