This is my first post so don't know if the link will get you to the song.
All done with Band in a Box and mixed using Cubase.
Here's hoping.

Yes, welcome, Roy. A great first post.

It's a really good song, with lots of things going for it. Nice choice of instruments and the vocal and harmony were excellent.

The quality of the vocal recording sounded a little harsh and this is maybe down to the mic or pre-amp. What were you using? It also sounded as though it could use a bit of reverb to sweeten it and set it into the mix better.

If I'm being really picky, maybe bring the snare and hi-hat up a little to match the kick drum.

But I don't mean to be too critical because it's generally very good. Looking forward to more of your stuff.

ROG.

Roy,

Very enjoyable song. Good lyric and a strong melody. Solid vocal - a very comfortable vocal style!

Nice production and mix. How did you build that drum track?

Looking forward to more...

Roy, a hearty "Welcome!" I thoroughly enjoyed this. Very fresh and clean and not choked with too many FX. A nice blend. Thanks for posting. I'm anxious to hear more and that's exactly what songwriters are after, to create an appetite in your audience, and I think you've done that quite nicely here.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
