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 !)

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!

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.

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.

Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
