Thanks Scott.
Just listened to your "Lawn chair". Really nice song. But the chair will have to wait until tomorrow, 'cause it's 0.30 AM here and....raining ;-)

I like the song, and the work you both put into it.

The video almost looked like it synced up in a few rare places.... that was distracting. Like trying to watch a Japanese movie with English voices dubbed in.

I might consider providing an "audio only" link.

The only crit I have is that there should be a slight bit more crispness to the overall mix as well as and in particular on the vox.

Aside from that minor EQ issue..... very well done and delicate song.

Hello Guitarhacker,

Thanks for your comments. Yes, just by chance some scenes in the video are almost in sync, totally by accident we might add.
We like adding videos to our music to enhance the feeling of the song. Anne-Marie does most of the work here. In this case we used public domain video and it's quite a search to get proper fitting images that add something to the music.
We realize that there is a downside to all of this, the quality of the mix tends to degrade quite a bit when uploading it to YouTube.
In the future we probably will also put an occasional audio-only mix online, on SoundCloud for instance. And we agree, that in some cases a video might be distracting.
As for a more crispier sound, that's a good tip. On the vocals, however, that might be a bit of a problem. Rob has quite a sharp 'sss' while singing. We always use a de-esser for this, but putting more high-frequencies in the mix will also boost these sharp 'sss's. Maybe you have a good tip for us here?

Regards,
R & AM

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
