Hi, friends !:))

Have had some weird dreams that
I just had to turn to a song.
I hope that it is going to
be easier now as I got it out
of me ? Who knows ?:))
In any case I fell for this style:

BAYOU.Sty Med st. 8ths style.
As usual I am uncertain with
the mix but am taking the risk !
Recorded and mixed in mixcraft 6
Vocals thru zoom H4n to mixcraft.

Hope you´ll like the combination C9sus,c2, C9sus,F2 ?

Cheers Dani

Lyrics;

I Love You (by Dani)

I took a stroll down memory lane
I´m goin´back to when I met you, my dear
it doesn´t matter if there´s sunshine or rain
because there´s nothing left for me to fear

You came to me in a wonderful sight
and you seemed to me to be so real
I tried to talk to you through the light
but I just could not open the seal
I couldn´t open the seal

So I said that

I love you
it was as simple as that when you knew it was true
so I said that, I love you
and suddenly the spell on you just vanished too

There we were just the two of us
in another time, another space
I still recall how we wondered thus
and I looked upon your lovely face

I saw the love light in your eyes
as I held you oh so tight
never had another dream that nice
as I loved you all through the night
all through the night

And I said that

I love you
it was as simple as that when you knew it was true
so I said that, I love you
and suddenly the spell on you just vanished too

solo

Still a shiver passes through my mind
trying to reach that juvenile goal
when I relive the time left behind
with every fibre of my body and soul

I´m a tossin´and a turnin´ around
this dream is keepin´me awake
soon I´m gonna hit the ground
please release me for heaven’s sake
for heavens´s sake

And now I say that

I love you
it is as simple as that when you know it is true
so I say that, I love you
and suddenly the spell on you just vanished too

And so I say that

I love you
it is as simple as that when you know it is true
so I say that, I love you
and suddenly the spell on you just vanished too

©Dani Lindroos 2014

I am dedicating this song to my good friend
Dean Clark as a response to him doing the same
with Blue Ooze !:))

Oops ! Just realized Dean probably ment
the plumber, but that´s okay ! The dedication
stays as is !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani
What a super song. I love the "hook" in the chorus and, yes, I like the C9sus, C2 in the verse.
I think the mix is absolutely fine and the voices and doubled voices and harmonies work very well.
Cheers
ian

Dani,

A very enjoyable listen. Channeling that Bacharach thing, I think..

The chorus is especially nice - terrific harmonies. Interesting effect with the lead vocal doubled (did you sing both - it's quite tight!).

The mix is very good. Although it seems that you are lowering the drums during the verses. I don't think you need to. They start out at a good level (intro) - and seem to have that same (good) level during the choruses - and seem to drop during each verse....

You are a songwriting machine.

Hi, Floyd !!

....and thank you for your kind comments
and good advice !:))
The problem with the drums is that
when I add more vocals in the mix the
instruments tend to go down especially
the drums.

You are right, I did sing the lead twice
and panned them on either side,so it is not
the lead copied and panned. I think one can
hear the difference here and there even if they
are pretty tight as you say !:))

I do not feel like a songwriting machine (chuckle) !
I have my hands full trying to hang on to all ye
other real songwriters !:))

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

That seems an odd thing... your drums change volume themselves when vocals are added? Is that some kind of Mixcraft setting (again, seems like something you would not want if it exists). The verse drums are now about right, but the rest - which were right before - are a bit too loud - especially the drums fills - they get really loud.

I assume you have volume envelopes in Mixcraft - you could use them to set the sections (verse, chorus, fills) to differing levels (if, in fact, the software is doing some kind of "compensation" on the drums as vocals occur...)

Don't want to mess you up - the original mix is good - just that the up and down of drum level is "noticeable" - like it is being manipulated...

Hi Dani

Like many others here, I often start out in BiaB, get a melody sitting somewhere where I want it to be - more or less, then move it to Real Band to do all the fine tuning, add further tracks, get the balance right, regenerate only certain sections of a track, and more.

Real Band has many more features, and is surprisingly easy to use once you take a short time to become acquainted.

The tip that works for me: Once in Real Band, save it as a SEQ file and keep moving forward with that file in Real Band, don't try to take it back to BiaB once you've done any real work in Real Band, reverse engineering back to BiaB is usually not practical.

Give it a try, just be prepared to be a bit patient at first.

Cheers

Trevor

That'll be a WINNER!
Videotrack is right - RB will take a little getting used to as I find it a little idiosyncratic after using Cakewalk for 10 years, but it IS the way to go.
I keep having a little play with it and am slowly getting more comfortable.
cheers
ian

Hi Dani, another super production, however I have a "but", and is about the melody vocals, they are fine, however they come a little "too separated" on the stereo spectrum, at least on my headphones and also maybe it could be a little lower volume in relation to the background (which is a fine one). I loved the progression and the fine chorus you created. Keep in mind that I'm no expert in mixing whatsoever, so my opinion is only an observation on how it sound thru my headphones.

Take care

Mike B.

Not trying to dissuade anyone from using/learning RealBand - it is astounding to think that with BIAB, you also get a full-blown DAW...

But... I believe Dani has been using Mixcraft (and doing a fine job!) and from what I have seen, it seems like a nice DAW (especially for the price)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJPe1DwXPuE

It has volume envelopes (automation) - so my question is... why not use that to get the drum levels sounding even...

Learning a new DAW can be a daunting task - I recently switched from Sony Acid Pro to Presonus Studio One (Pro). It took several full-blown productions to get comfortable (I am really liking it, btw! - highly recommend it)...

Hi Dani,

I like the chords and harmonies as always.
Beautiful song.
(Only nit: try not to cut the steel in the ending).

Hi, guys (Trevor and Ian) !

Thank you for you kind com ments !

I will try to start experimenting
with realband but it is exactly
as Floyd says later here, that
I am quite used to use mixcraft
and so it will take a good time
for me to use realband on a broader
level ?


Cheers
Dani

Dear Mike !

Thank you so much for your most kind
comments. You may be absolutely right
with the mix. It seems to be a problem
that what comes out fairly okay with
certain headphones can come out completely
differently with others ? I have experienced that
frequently and I am not 100 % sure any more
with my own headphones or hearing either for that
matter ??? :))
Lol ! Our barbershop chorus director constantly
keeps telling me I am too low singing bass though, I think
he takes the root sound from the higher register
of the note he is blowing)?

Cheers
Dani

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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!"

continued...

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."
