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

PG Music News
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."
