A new song, all done with Band in a Box and mixed with Cubase. Just a few thoughts about the plight of a lot of people in our world.

Roy,

for some reason Sound Cloud has not been working for me lately... I'll have to reserve comment until I can get it to work so I can hear your song...

update: I was able to listen on another computer

Sounds like you got your Cat Stevens on! I liked this song a lot!

You have a very commercial voice... tonality is right there, and you have vocal personality if that makes any sense

I like your choice of real tracks... especially the opening guitar. A lot of people post that info for future reference... when we hear something we like, that helps us find the cool track with a lot less work

My perception of the lyrics was generally positive, but it would be nice to see them written out so I don't have to remember the phrases I want to discuss a little more.

There were a couple of times when the harmony didn't line up with the chord I thought would be playing at that spot... I'll have to listen a few more times to get a better understanding of the chords.

Quick & dirty summary: cool song! Post more!

Roy,

This is very well done. Nice production and a very well recorded vocal. And well sung. Good mix.

Sort of classic folk song with a modern sound.

Nice! Enjoyable.

PG Music News
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."
