Hi again, here is a new composition, I have tried to take on board the comments from my last post, so see what you think.
The Instruments are mostly Sample Tank, Guitars are BinB as are Strings etc.
Thanks

Thanks for your comments, no I haven't used a pro studio, I have Cubase for production and a small home set-up.
Thanks again.

Very large sound. I might have dialed the overall reverb and those ahhs back just a bit but that's all purely subjective.

I like the way the arrangement builds. The vocal is really pretty with that wonderful Cat Stevens quality you have in your voice and it's a lovely message song.

royg -

A cool sound - pretty song. The piano and strings work well to deliver the message. When the strings drop out about 2:10 and when they come back in at about 2:30 it's a bit abrupt. A fade out and then fade back in there would be nice - a little thing.

Enjoyable.

Thanks for the comments, I did think about fade in but didn't get around to it, maybe I will give it another go and see how it sounds.

Thanks again.

Neil Diamond in your voice

Very, very nice! I really like this song and performance. I agree with the Neil Diamond comparison, and like Josie, I can hear a little Cat Stevens, when you are singing more softly. A good combination.

This was a pleasure to hear. A very heartfelt performance coupled with musicianship on all levels - writing, arranging, presentation and production.

More please!

All the best,

#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!
