Written way back in 2000 but totally re-worked in 2014 using BIAB, vocals as always done in house studio. Was part of an Album I did back in 2000 called " Not War" redid the entire Album using BIAB and to say the least it did a great job.

Derek,

Welcome to the forum.

You have a terrific sound going here. Nicely arranged, recorded and mixed. Nice vocals, too.

As others have mentioned on some of your other posts, it would be nice to see what RealTracks you might have used. And whatever extra was added from elsewhere (there seem to be some loops?). Lyrics are nice to see, as well...

You will likely find that if you spread your posts out a bit you will get more attention for each of them. Give people an opportunity to listen and comment on a single song before moving on to the next.

Enjoyed the listen

floyd

Hi Derek

A good track with a very big sound.

At times I thought that there was a lot of activity going on in the same octave, which made the mix a bit muddy in places, but generally a very nice production.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi thanks for your post,re the tracks used and other stuff this was done over a year ago and unfortunately the original BIAB song file is long gone,so I can't recall what tracks were used,as for loops no I don't use loops never have done I don't like loops and to be honest I'm not proficent in their use anyway.All the tracks used here are entirely BIAB generated apart from the vocals.All tracks were saved individually then arranged via Samplitude and exported as a .wav file then Mastered. This Album was originally done in 2000 but never released as I was not happy with the original results.In 2014 I decided to re-work all the songs and used Band In A Box exclusively to do this.On a couple of the tracks there may be a little live piano but only a very small amount.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
