LOVED IT

I really liked your choice of RTs. Your vocals were spot on and the train effect put it over the top IMHO

Two thumbs up

Hi Rob, You seem to have a real knack for picking the right tracks for good country stuff. I enjoyed the listen! Also listened to "Didn't Notice Me" while I was there and I couldn't help but think that Johhny Cash would have had a ball with that one. I seemed to hear him in every line.

Good job!

Val

Rob,

Liked as mentioned above, the train really added a nice important part of your song.
Especially liked you doing the background vocal support. Added
a lot to your song.

Your a very creative person, with a lot of talent!

Absolute Newbie here - got BIAB today, but have have spent the last few days lurking and listening here. All I can say, is that if this song - Last Train - is an example of what can be achieved with BIAB, then I've spent my money well. An excellent production all round. Well done.

Warning for new BIAB users.
Be prepared for uncontrolled amounts of inspiration and copious amounts of songs writing.

Welcome Bonjo and thanks for your kind comments.
Will be keeping an eye out for your material.
Regards Rob.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”.

BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
