We hope you like our new song:

Overs & Dones



Rob wrote Overs & Dones on his ukulele. But with real tracks it sounds much better.
A slightly sad song about a broken relationship, hhmm yes I know, his favorite song subject whistle (I recently wrote a song on a totally different subject wink we'll be posting it when the holidays are over).

Style: _banfolk 16th acoustic folk
Used real tracks:
1765 guitar high strung acoustic fingerpick.pop 16th ev 16
2265 synth bellpad rhythm 80s pop melodic ev 085
518 bass electric pop halfnotes ev 085

lyrics:

Overs & Dones

Overs & Dones
getting clearer, nowhere runs
any words left to say,
will no longer come into play

and then I realize
this means so much more than saying,
goodbye

new lies told today,
seemed never ever too far away
and our license to love,
may not have been given from above

and then I realize,
this must have been our final try

and then I realize,
this must've been our final try
and then I come to find,
this means so much more than saying
goodbye


regards,
Anne-Marie

The track is nice and fits the sentiment. Haunting like some early Simon and Garfunkel stuff. Still, maybe post the ukulele version as a bonus track? I'd love to here it too.

Hi Patrick,

thanks for your nice comments!
Here is the link to the original ukulele version:

Overs & Dones ukulele version

make sure to turn up the volume a bit, I re-uploaded it, the initial version gave a distorted sound.

Regards,
Rob

Really pretty song!! You frequently have the coolest changes from verse to chorus which are not conventional but work perfectly. Great use of real tracks, beautiful harmonies, and I love the weigh the bell pad (whatever the name was) fit! Excellent work....again! Take care. Greg

Both of the versions are very good. I like the mood with the ukulele, very intimate. Good production with the real tracks. I always enjoy your songs.

A haunting, beautiful song, says everything in 2.18
both voices are excellent.
I too see the haunting Simon and Garfunkel reference and it is
difficult to chose between both versions, I like both equally.

Very pleasant and I think a bit bluesy. Great vocals.
Loved the uke version. Cheers.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

Beautiful song. Beautifully sung. Beautifully produced - nice and clean.

My favorite of yours (so far). Love the lyric - simple, emotional..lyrical.

The mix is excellent. As nice to hear a bass line so crisp and so much a part of the song. The bell pad is a nice choice.

I could play both videos - but I do appreciate that you added the soundcloud link - (it has a better sound than the video).

Beautiful song! My ear gravitates to the Em version a bit more than the Fm, and you have the uke sounding magical.

much enjoyed! and wonderful harmonies!

Thank you Greg,

yes, the bellpad is very useful for all kinds of songs, you can get some subtle background "tapestry" with it.

Hi Alyn,

being compared to Simon and Garfunkel (of which I've always been a true fan) is an honor.
Thank you!

Regards,
Rob

Hi Richmac,

Bluesy? You're to first to ever call one of our songs bluesy, haha. Although the song's subject definitely is bluesy. Thanks for your nice comment!

Regards,
Rob

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
