808 guitar electric rhythm driving country ballad dirty ev 065
used MIDI tracks:
instrument 33 acoustic string bass
instrument 5 electric piano
real drums: Nashville even 8

Lyrics:

Can you still see me

walk on by it's like forever
city lights seem to fade right out of view
was so nice just to be with her
now she's gone simply vanished from your life

can you still see us
the way we flew by
can you still feel us now
we just hit the ground

was an awfully wrong trail
just like the ones before
memories even remain
recall the love in pain

step right up with rage and laughter
everything that you fear is coming your way
looking for someone to run to
anyone anyplace it's all the same

can you still see me
the way I flew by
can you still hear me now
that I hit the ground

was an awfully long trail
like it was before
memories somehow remain
recalling love in pain

I mutter as the rain falls
weaving old memories in time
I stumble in the nightlife
welcome whatever comes my way

can you still see us
the way we flew by
can you still feel us now
we just hit the ground

was an awfully long trail
just like the ones before
memories somehow remain
recalling love in pain


Regards,
R & AM

Nice work Rob and Anne-Marie! I love the modulation into the chorus, it's just so right. Excellent vocals also.

This sounds like something from the mid 1960's, which BTW is one of my favorite music periods!

Everything about this is professional, great mix, vocals, chord progression, and lyrics.

Given my very junior status on this forum and my early state of mixing experience, I have little confidence to offer meaningful comment concerning that. However I DO know what I like to listen to, and this would be IT! West Coast indeed. Way to wail on it!

Rob & Anne-Marie,

Another fantastic song in your catalog. Your writing, production and performance are always top shelf. We have nearly exhausted ourselves of superlatives to review your music. Great song and impeccable delivery. Very well done, indeed! Kudos to both of you ...

Not surprisingly, another great job!! Very well put together in every way. Great vocals. Love the Wurly, and the solo guitar worked great as well. Is that a real track or played by you? Another stellar job!! Take care. Greg

Well done! Smooth and engaging. I like the breakdown in the bridge, and the harmonies are once again tops.

(In my headphones the Soundcloud mix "leans" to the left and there is a phase-y artifact to it. I checked it twice and compared it to the video version.)

much enjoyed!

Thanks Charlie, John, Mario, George, Alan & Di, Dani, Josie, Greg, Floyd, Robert, Alyn, Patrick, Noel, Lawrence and Guenter for all this positive feed back on our song.

Greg: the solo is a real track: 2202 country crossover brent sw 16 075

Lawrence: You're right about the mix panning. In my recordings the left channel tends to dominate. I've noticed this before in previous recordings. Has probably something to do with my sound card. I will check this out.

Regards,
R & AM

We very much like the feel of this. It reminds us of some of the best 60's productions from the UK. Outstanding vocals!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.

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.
