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.

Hi Roy,

A very good song. Well sung and the music's very good too.
Cat Stevens...? Mmmmm... I sometimes heard Johnny Cash.
Go on like this.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
