That's about as spot on as it gets Floyd. A great song beautifully delivered with engineering to match. Loved it.
cool

Top notch. You nailed the mix and the Real Tracks editing. I didn't notice any wayward notes, just a fine song and performance.

Critter - I seem to be going the other direction - LOL - getting more and more rock'n'roll smile

I don't generally chose a Style. Although, it looks like I may have loaded:

_PBALADM.STY (Med PopBal w Dreamy ElGt (85 RS))

..for this. That's what in BIAB when I call this back up. The song was done at 125 - so the RTs were all 120 versions. Take a look at the list of RTs I put up. That's why I put them there - so people can get a similar sound if they chose to...
----------------------------------------------


John - That put a grin on my face! Your productions are so top-notch - if I can get such a response from you... then I gotta say I'm pleased... thanks!


olemon - thanks... appreciate that!

Hi Floyd.

Been away and nearly missed this one, but I just had to give it a bump.

Great track which sounds like it came straight off the top of the Country Chart.

Until you get something wrong, there's not much more I can say.

ROG.

Hey floyd,

Woops!!!!! I listened to this one ages ago but, as I was going through the forum this morning trying to catch up on all the posts that I've missed, I discovered that I didn't post a comment on this song.

It's fantastic! I love that way that the chorus changes its colour with each verse and the bridge. Just as others have commented, the line "a ballerina climbing junkyard cars" is inspired songwriting at it's best - very visual and uniquely the voice of floyd jane. I just used Google to search for "ballerina climbing junkyard cars" and there were only five sites returned. Four of those were related to car sales (or wreckers) and really didn't contain the phrase (they must have bribed Google). The fifth site was...

... link to the fifth site (second in the list)

How amazing is that! In a world where it's possible to find almost anything and everything, your phrase is unique. Google says so smile

I've got to say, I'm really falling for the aabccb rhyme pattern that you used. It really works so well.

My favourite two lines are
Quote:
i might get ahead of you, but
i'll wait for you to catch up


To use a simple and unassuming conjunction like "but" and to give it the strength of rhyme as well as the payoff of the last line is pretty clever lyric writing in my book. I felt a sense of 'hanging' at the end of the last line with that pause BUT ....

.... it made the payoff all so sweet!

Lastly, the production is a perfect fit for the very memorable melody and incredibly well designed harmony.

There goes that forum bar up a few more notches!

All the best,
Noel

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
