It's been a while since I've posted here. But, that doesn't mean we've stopped using BIAB. On the contrary, we're using it more than ever. The 2014 version is fabulous and is the most valuable tool in our studio.

This original song, titled "Bear Me On", was written in Nov, 2013 and recorded shortly thereafter. If you have children, especially if they're grown, this will probably mean more to you. It's about missing the times when the children were kids. Sappy? Maybe. You can decide. It was the hardest song I ever had to perform in the studio. I doubt I could perform it publicly..ever. It was inspired by the tragedy at Sandy Hook but is NOT about that incident, which just made me value my time with my kids all the more.

The song was created with MIDI SUPER TRACKS: M_CTPNC.STY SlowCountry John MIDIPiano[MST85. The piano and beautiful cello work are soloed for the first part of the song. Key:D, Tempo: 95. Tracks exported to Reaper for initial mixing, then transferred to Sonar Producer for addition of vocals. Mic: Rode NT1000. Some minor compression to the final mix, but the song has not been mastered as yet. We would normally do that with Sound Forge, and create a final master CD made Sony's CD Architect. A pretty straight forward production. Questions welcome. ~Thanks for listening

Hi Hawgly,

It's good to see you back in the forum again. As you say, it's been a while!

I enjoyed this work. The lyrics really appealed to me. It was a pleasure to listen to.

All the best,
Noel

Nice to "meet" you! We're kind of new here...a couple of months.

Such a beautiful song! Your vocal is wonderful and the lyric thought-provoking and so well-crafted. The cello was a perfect touch. We totally loved our listen ...excellent!!!

Hi Hawgly,

I've been here on this forum for one and a half years but haven't heard you, yet. What a pity, because this is a
beautiful song.

Hawgly, You need to come by more often. Beautiful song. I miss those days too when the kids were little. Now there's grandkids so that makes it easier. Very well sung and arranged. Nicely written. We want to hear more,more,more.

A really well presented song, with a great introduction, and sensitive feel. The strings worked really well. And your vocals delivered a beautiful lyric perfectly.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks again to everyone who posted comments. I think the one little tweak that really helped to set the mood for this song was getting the right cello performance. We regenerated a number of times to allow BIAB to come up with what, at least to our ears, was a suitably mix of "pretty and sad". We weren't disappointed. If I had HIRED a cellist I don't think I could have gotten a more satisfactory performance. Different maybe, but not necessarily better. I've been using BIAB since the late 90's and it continues to amaze me. Thanks to the PGM folks for making us sound so good.
