Thanks everyone for the feedback and tips on the song. I have tried to address most of them

I raised the overall volume of the mix
I brought down the fiddle and the drums, making vocs more understandable
I added more re verb to the vocal and instruments

Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment, please let me know how this version sounds.

Just As The Sun Will Rise and Set

The lyrics for this one were written by Alta Florence, I have permission for the song. The arrangement was done using all Band in a Box Real Tracks. The Style is CWALZPS Country Waltz with Pedal Steel:

The style instruments were:

Bass: 1123
Drums=Nashville Classic Waltz
Pedal Steel: 1298
Acoustic Guitar Strumming: 825
Finger Picking Acoustic Guitar: 823

I added to the melody and solo track
Fiddle: 1107
Mandolin solo: 2121
My Tunes

Psalm 57:7 My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.

Hi Robert,

I listened to your previous version of this song and I have to say that in this version, your vocals are much clearer and the mix frames them very nicely.

This sounded good to my ears.

Sounds good! You might want to bring the instrumentals a bit forward in the mix.

You emphasize the rhythm by breaking syllables on a lot of words ("thankful", "precious", "every", "very", "family"), and it fits the style well. Still, I would have liked the vowels held instead.

Nice work! smile

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

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
