Wonderful, Elliott
Not only for the young kids, but for your older ones too. Our Son of nearly 35 and family are now finding their own way in another country (Australia). We bring them up to be Independent and he is / they are finding their own way.
I loved the slide in the video that says "Carpe Diem". Amen to that!
Can you share the RB tracks that you used and production process with us, Elliott?
cheers
Ian

Thanks for the feedback and kind words. My son is 26 and is out there now "finding his own way" in this crazy world. That was my inspiration for this song. I will follow up with my process and tracks used.

LYRICS: Find Your Own Way - Copyright 2014 Elliott Kayne. BMI U4EA Music Productions

Welcome to this world Welcome to your life
Open your eyes and let in the light
When take your first steps you may fall
Brush it off and get back up again
There are many paths to take there are mountains you will climb
The longest journey starts with just a step at a time
Go and Find Your Own Way

Do what is hard Live without fears
Trust in yourself you’ll find wisdom in the years
So take the chances and go seek and you will find
That the world will welcome those
Who are brave and knows their mind
And open up your wings and feel them fly you away
Look Beyond your dreams to Go and Find Your Own Way

Every chance you take decisions that you make
Will help you write the story of your life
You’re going to make some mistakes
That will give you what it takes to Find Your Own Way

Write your own book what stories you will tell
Fill in the lines in colors and pastels
Write your fame and fortune let it blaze across sky
Create a shining rainbow with your life
You can live all your dreams you can fly beyond the moon
Cease every day cause it’s over way to soon
And go and Find Your Own Way

Hi Elliott,

What a great idea! This is something that will last your son a lifetime and beyond. How cool is that smile

I applaud the attention you've given to your arrangement. There are some really great chord progressions and I love the way you weave the instrumental texture of the sonic fabric. It's a pleasure to listen to. Great performance too.

Excellent work!

Regards,
Noel

I was asked to list the REAL TRACKS used as well as my production techniques ... here you go:

****** Song Summary *************
Title: Find your own way

Style is _BALLP16.STY (16ths Pop-Rock Ballad [85 RS])

RealTracks in style: 1759:Bass, Electric, Pop16ths Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 1765:Guitar, High-Strung Acoustic, Fingerpicking Pop16ths Ev16 085
RealTracks in style: 1764:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Pop16thsA-B Ev16 085
RealTracks in song: 1606:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Pop16ths Ev16 110
RealTracks in song: 788:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm CrossoverClean Sw16 090 (A:held)
RealDrums in style: NashvillePop16^1-a:Snare, Hihat , b:Snare, Ride
*******************

I first made the arrangement in BIAB then exported all the files as mono WAVs and imported them into REASON. I switch between Cubase and REASON as my DAW of choice, but lately I prefer REASON's easy of use.

One thing to note: Always set your tempo to the same tempo as BIAB prior to import. This way the click tracks line up with the beat. This makes it easier to add new audio tracks after import.

I sing a scratch lead vocal as a guide, first to make sure the arrangement is right and everything lines up.

I then added Acoustic Guitar (playing my Taylor figerpicking), Electric (Strat via Line 6 500x), and some Reason Refill instruments (Harp, Piano, touch of strings in Mid 8). The harp was interesting, if you transpose to F# or B you can do a nice glassando across the black keys, then transpose it back into your original key, and it will sound just like a harp.

I did a lot of editing of the Real Tracks once imported into REASON ... deleting parts, Slicing, audio stretching of notes to hold longer, etc.

I then added vocals, vocal backups, and then mix and master.

I then export the song as a WAV file and import into MAGIX Movie Producer Pro ... find images on google, and build my movie to the musical cues. I may add a touch of compression and eq using Magix audio plug-ins to polish the final output.

I then upload to Youtube, and distribute the song.

It can take between 50 and 100 hours work from concept to completion ... some more some less. This song in particular was a real problem, and a lot of hours, because after I recorded the whole thing I found that my lead vocal was not able to hit some of the notes in the Mid 8. So I scratched that version, and redid the whole process again in a new key ... duh!

Thanks for listening. More to follow.

Yeah... always sing the song in BB to check the notes against your vocal range before you spend all that time..... next time...

I have to agree with the previous posters, great song, great lyrics. I especially love the lyrics.

Thumbs up on the song.


I was reading your process.... have you considered opening the saved BB song project in Real Band and rendering it to waves in RB? I find it's easier to change the various tracks from one player and track to the next, or even adding tracks for comparison side by side.... which bass track for example works best... this one or that one.

Initially, I used to export the tracks from BB but now, I simply let RB render them as new tracks and use that as my starting point for the tracks.

Keep writing!!

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

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."
