I enjoyed listening and I liked the way the vocals sit in the mix. Good job.

Regards,

Charlie

I love the song! Really nice-catchy and emotion evoking. I like the vocal effect you used but I would make it more subtle. Love the feel of your work. Take care. Greg

I like the 3/4 feeling of this. Not too often do you hear something in 3/4 time these days.

Nice song.

I'm not a fan of the vocal aspect. Plain and simple, and this is my opinion. Take it anyway you wish.... if that is a vocal effect, don't use it. The use of vocal FX are rarely going to enhance a song and make it better. Especially in the country genre.
If, on the other hand that's not a FX..... hummm...

IMHO, a clean, well recorded vocal track that highlights the singer's voice and conveys the song and it's lyrical message is generally always the best option.

I have known a bunch of home recording hobbyists through the years who tried to use FX to cover up what they thought was a "horrible singing voice" or a less than stellar recording. It's much better to record and let the chips fall where they may.

Using FX to cover up deficiencies, real or imagined, simply hides the real issue and to work towards getting the best vocal recording you can get, you have to hear what's really going on. Once you hear what's happening, you can work on the fixes.

I'm not a great singer by any means, but I went through that very phase myself and a wise old friend on another forum called it to my attention. The only fx I use on a vox track now is reverb, and very lightly. Proper EQ, some compression and let it roll.

Get a good mic, mount it on a stand, put a pop filter 1" in front of it, and sing pretty close to it. Get a strong signal level out of it and hit record. That's all I do these days. Nothing fancy.

Love the song and the melody!!!

The vocal effect is distracting though, so I hope you'll experiment as others have suggested.

Hey, this is an excellent song!

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."
