Senn5 I really enjoyed this. I do country gospel myself so this is my favorite style of music. It started off like "Have I told you lately that I love You". Thanks for sharing!! occ

Nice.

I can picture this one being covered by The Gaither outfit.


Blessings, and Merry Christmas!

Senn5..I really liked this..I wouldn't suggest a single change...tell us a bit more about how you put it together..style/effects, etc.
Thanks for sharing!

Nice work - good arrangement, and it maintains interest throughout.

The only real negative is the auto-harmony - it comes off a bit too robotic. Part of the problem might be that it tracks exactly against the lyric. If you've got other takes, you might use them to generate the parts instead. Another option might be to stagger the harmony parts a bit so they don't quite stack up the same.

But really, getting the original singer to do parts would be ideal - especially since it's a keystone of the chorus!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hey thanks so much for the plus comments........much appreciated.

David Cuny....... I couldn't agree with you more. This was my first attempt at trying the harmonies in BIAB. I've tried everything in the mix from EQ to you name it to try and get that robotic sound out of there. I'll have to try your suggestion of staggering them a bit and see what happens. I have a Vocalist Live Pro but Michelle's voice has a VERY strong vibrato in it, and although I love the VLP it is very sensitive to that and I have harmonies flying all over the place...lol I recorded her voice in Sonar and used V-Clip to take out some of the vibrato as well as pitch correction.

I had to try and generate harmonies the best I could, Michelle isn't that strong of a singer and I don't think she is capable of singing the parts on her own. She writes her own songs and I've agreed to try to put together a CD for her.

I started in BIAB using _ctryswu UptempoCountrySwing and then loaded that into realband to generate other instruments. From there I load all the individual tracks into Sonar and record her voice. I pitch correct her voice and save that as a wave file and load it back into BIAB to generate the harmonies. Then load ALL back into Sonar, cut/paste mix,EQ and whatever until I come up with something I can live with...:)

Hey Mac! Thanks so much for the positive, much appreciated.

Thanks again everyone and a Merry Christmas to all........take care.

Nice tune. Good arrangement.
About the harmonies: Ask Floyd Jane. He does very well with his BIABettes.

Merry Christmas

Agree. Another trick is to add a slight Chorus effect to the BGV to create some movement. The Kjaerhus Classic Series Chorus is great for this. You can still grab these from The Acoustica Site.

Good tune!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Dr. Dave" Walker (Dr. Dave On Music) recently received Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac, and he absolutely loves it!

He's written his thoughts in detail, which can (and definitely should) be read here: Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Band-in-a-Box 2020 is a huge advance over even BB2019, with easier to use, more powerful features that give you more information while creating more musical results. You have never had more control of more features which are now much easier to find. The move forward with this version is astonishing. Again … WOW!

My very highest recommendation. Just upgrade! Or if for some strange reason you don’t have it yet, BUY THIS ONE! It will change your musical life!"
-"Dr. Dave" Walker
