Hello everyone,

We hope you like it, as always comments are welcome.

2201 nylon background country brent ev 120

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!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
