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

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.


Josie

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

PG Music News
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!"

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."
