Rob, your material is always top-class. Great melody, accompanied by a beautiful vocal. The video clip is the icing on the cake.
Very sensitive, with builds in all the right places.

Congratulations

(And Happy Birthday Anne-Marie !)

Beautiful song beautifully sung and presented. Top class lyrics.
Great dynamics. Everything is just right. Pro video and the piano's are perfect for the song.
Best wishes Anne-Marie and what a wonderful present. Ahhhh. Cheers.

Biased she may be...but she has plenty of reasons for it!

When the candy is eaten and the flowers have faded
a tribute like this will endure. And, equally important,
it can be shared with others.

Beautifully written, sung, arranged and mixed and
presented by another world class video.

Happy belated b'day wishes!

J&B

Happy belated AM!! Very pretty song!! Vocals as usual are as good as it gets. Nice everything-lyrics, arrangement, mix..... I particularly got a kick out of the faux violin video. I remember Rob doing that very convincingly on an electric guitar solo as well. Really nice stuff!! Take care. Greg

Thank you Rich!
Part of the dynamics are due to the acoustic guitar coming in on the chorus, but also Frank's user track plays an important role here.

Thank you Greg, yes, it's always nice to mimic the solo in a video (this violin part was already 'existing' footage. Wouldn't even know how to hold a violin, haha.

Is the Piano One VST the free one?




Thank you Floyd! Yes, the song features the Piano One free VSTI. We think it's the best midi piano plug-in, ever. The only thing it usually needs is a slight adjusting of the release and sustain. The plug-in works nicely in BIAB but may have some issues in several DAWS.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
