Cool song!! Love the vibe, love the vocal, and the lyric is fun. I always like your style. I believe you're in Sacramento. We are neighbors-I live in Davis. Thanks for posting! Take care. Greg

I totally agree with Greg. You've got a great vibe happening, top notch vocals, very classy composition and arrangement, and an exquisite mix.

Happy New Year!

Carolyne, really nice feel, thoroughly enjoyed it. The spacing on the vocals worked perfectly. What microphone do you use?

Hi, Carolyne !:))


Wonderful, just great music
so superbly sung and performed !
You sing this song in a mood
that you really make me wish
that Christmas would be here
tomorrow again to give me a reason
to listen to this again and again !!:))
In fact, your song makes me feel fine
though it is a goodbye song ?
How do one explain that ???? (LOL) !!

Just simply great Carolyne !!!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,
Wow...I don't know what to say; such a nice, heartfelt compliment you have given! I guess a BIG THANK YOU is where I should start. If you, as I, believe music people are gifted with an ability to communicate emotion, your review of Goodbye to Christmas has certainly upheld that tenet. It is one of the reasons I try to be careful about what I write. You just never know to whom or what type of emotion is being elicited. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Have a great, and musical 2015.

Well, this is the second song I've heard of yours, and you've consistently hit a high bar with both!

Not much else to say, other than I'm looking forward to your next song. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Revisit: Eyes on Success featuring PG Music Inc., Band-in-a-Box®, and the Updated JAWS Script

In the past, Eyes on Success featured an episode that discussed our company history and Band-in-a-Box® program with Tobin, our chief development officer, including how Band-in-a-Box® is even more accessible with the help of their JAWS screen reader scripts!

Later on this month, Eyes on Success will be releasing an episode that features Gudrun Brunot talking about her new tutorials about how to use Band-in-a-Box® with JAWS.

It's a great idea to pair the two episodes together!

So, while waiting for their Gudrun Brunot episode, take 30 minutes and to listen to this episode from Eyes on Success. To download and listen to the podcast, use the link www.EyesOnSuccess.net/eos_2344_podcast.mp3

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
