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.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
