John,

I truly appreciate your input. I have great respect for your arranging abilities. I have been bothered all along by the drum part (too bland), just haven't done anything about it yet. When I have some more time to devote to this one, I will probably fine tune it.

Thanks again, and glad you like the song.

Steve

Paul,

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed this. I will try turning my mic upside down next time, so you don't have to rearrange your speakers down there!

Thanks Steve! I'd have to agree with John about the drums - the rest of the Realtracks are just fine, but the drums - well they're not quite right. This is a very, very minor quibble mind you. It usually takes me a while to find exactly the right drums for my songs.

Stephen you have a God given talent to not only write fantastic lyrics but also to find the perfect melody and backing tracks to go along with them.

Outstanding job my friend.

It's a keeper!

Robert,

Thanks so much for taking time to listen and comment! (Does the song play backwards, when you are listening in Australia? )

Glad you enjoyed it!

Steve

Paul,

I agree on the drums. I simply ran out of time putting this one together, with my work schedule, so I chose to "err on the side of caution" and keep an over-simplified drum part, until I have the time to do it right. Thanks again for your input!

Mario,

Thanks so much! I always value your input, and appreciate your taking the time to listen and comment!

Robert,

Maybe if you turn your computer upside down???

Steve

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
