Hi, friends !:)))

I finally got this old
tune of mine converted
to BIAB, it was on my
record from 1992. It is
in fact a tribute to all
wives in general and my
own Beni in particular !
So sad she had to go
too early:

The links:
Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/my-wife
Box: http://app.box.com/s/9nxqd1wh2htizvb8erw5

Recorded and mixed with Mixcraft 6 on my laptop
Zoom H4n used as mic.

...and here are the lyrics:

MY WIFE (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 1992

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
who can ease your sorrow and strain
who will care for you
and see you thru
the moments when you´re blue

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
to relieve you of grief and pain
who will listen to
your thoughts so blue
and give her love to you
to you

Who can be so true
all these things to do
no one but my dearest wife
Oh, I love her so
hope we´ll always go
together thru this life

Whom do you turn to then
whom do you turn to then
when you need a friend
who will ease your dark despair
who will hold your hand
and always stand
beside you , come what may
It´s my wife

WOW

What a fantastic tribute to your wife and to all wives. If I could see into heaven I'd bet there are four thumbs up, two from your wife and two from God!

You vocals and harmonies were perfect for this song. Your chord progression, backing tracks and mix were perfect.

If my wife had passed I'm not sure I could sing a song like this without breaking up. This was a very heart felt song and you did one fantastic job on it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Dani, I joined this forum thinking I would be learning tips and techniques about a software program but from you and your heartfelt songs, I'm learning about what real love truly is. You are the epitome of loyalty, compassion and expression.

Great song, well written and mixed beautifully. The vocals and harmonies are the icing on the cake.

Hi Dani,

It's two very confident thumbs up from me. I'm always captivated by the AABA song format and you worked it very well. Those three repeating lines at the beginning of each A section were an excellent refrain.

I'm sure Beni is listening and smiling.

Best wishes,
Noel

A beautiful song, Dani.

And a good arrangement to carry it.

Love those tight harmonies!

Beautiful Song Dani and great tribute to your wife. I always admire people who can sing about their loved ones and put to music how they feel. I suppose it helps in the healing process as well.

I love those harmonies too.

Well done,
Musiclover

Hi, Mario !

You make me blush !
I am not sure I deserve
such nice words !
You know, Mario, that
my wife did get to hear
the version on the record.
I admit having had difficulties
earlier singing this song, but it
is three years since she died
and today I can do it ! Only
time can heal, how true is´nt that ?

Cheers
Dani

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
