Hello everyone,

Here's our new song in the so-called 'soft rock style'.
Any resemblance to the distinct sound of a very famous band of the 80s and 90s is sheer coincidence, haha.
Featuring two different Darin Favorite soloists.
No video for this one, just a nice picture.
Hope you like it.

All about you

Real tracks:
512:Bass, Electric, Pop Syncopated Ev 136
406: Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 136
501: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev 140
2306:Synth, Rhythm BubblegumPopAccentSynth Ev 140
512: Guitar, Electric, Soloist Dire Ev 140 (Bluesy)
511: Guitar, Electric, Soloist Dire Ev 140
Real Drums: NashvilleEven8^1-SideStick,Ride

The guitars reminded me of 'Sultans of Swing.' Sounds nice. Enjoyed the listen.

your production/engineering is always so well done! I don't know how you get each instrument so clear and present.

love your vocal affection of "you-know-who" especially the line just before the guitar solo- spot on!

Anne-Marie and Rob,

That guitar is so very distinctive...

Super vocals on this. An excellent mix - nice and airy.

Good song. Well done. Enjoyable listen.

Hi Rob and Ann-Marie
that "quacking" Strat had me reaching for the split pickup selection on mine and got me grooving along.
Great song and if it has some allegiance to DS and Mark's superb style then - clever you!!
Excellent.
cheers
ian

Hi Guenter,
Thanks, Rob is a big Mark Knopfler fan and wanted to do a Dire Straits emulation, guess what.... every related track was available in the UltraPlusPack.

Hi Lawrence,
Thanks, each mix takes quite a long of time. We also listen to the mixes at both Rob's and my place. On top of that we also use headphones. But in spite of that, mixing is quite a hard job.

Hi Floyd,
That's right, thanks to Darin Favorite!
But we did some finetuning on the solo's.

Hi Ian,
Rob tried to play along with this soloist on his Squier Strat, and managed to get just one or two of the tones right, haha.

Hi RichMac,
Thanks, more to come....

Cheers, Anne-Marie

Good tune. I'm also a big fan of Dire Straits. This is an excellent mix all around. You guys are great performers and I always look forward to hearing you.

I like the Dire sound too and y'all used it well. I would like to see the lyrics since there was a word or two I didn't get.

Love your voices. A pleasure listening.

Hi Josie,

It's a good thing you're asking for the lyrics of the song, we will post them also from now on.

Here's the lyrics of All about You:

Love is the reason, I've been trying
to find out all about you
It's the same way, the world comes around

Between our eyes and our things
whether it's yours or it's mine

How could I leave you, loving you all that time
what ever reason could ever be good enough

Between our eyes and our things
whether it yours or it's mine
And in a while I'm falling again
You've got no choice in this,
you can't leave me


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!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

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!
