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.

For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!
