Lyrics
When I see you my heart beats
Faster every time
I love you in the morning
And the evening time

As the light shines all around you
I can see your smile
Your friendship your kindness
Comforts me a while

When times get hard
You are there with me
You touch my soul
For all eternity

Now I know that you don't think so
Your just shy and sweet
Let me tell you I love you
With you I am complete

Instrumental

When times get hard
You are there with me
You touch my soul
For all eternity

Now I know that you don't think so
Your just shy and sweet
Let me tell you I love you
With you I am complete

Very nice work here George! I especially like the mix, very well done. Like all of your songs thus far this sounds like it was recorded and mastered in a professional studio!

Two thumbs up.

Hey Michee,

I like the slow dance romantic feel. And the horns are a nice touch but to me just a little too much of them. I think if you editted them a bit more they might be more impactful - jmho. Good experimenting.

Hi Josie,

Thanks for taking a listen and your comments.

As I am just experimenting and playing around with the horns in this song its good to get a different pair of ears to listen and tell it how it is.

I wish that I could play the Sax (for example) so I could feel the time to play and also feel the time to rest.
Maybe (if my health improves) I may seek lessons to just do that.

Thanks again Josie as I value your comments.

Best regards
George

Hey George

I think this is the best I have ever heard your voice sound - cleaner, more present, way less "space", more intimate. I'm not sure how I feel about the horns - I know they don't overpower my hearing, but then again they are not really anything I use in the music I play. Interesting to note that a well-known Canadian group called Blue Rodeo . . . yes country . . . actually did an album with horns. The title I cannot recall but it was at least 4 years ago - perhaps you might scan the web to see how they handled the horns with their instrumentation.

Continued good work from you my lad.

Ian

Thanks George! Really enjoyed that, and clever idea with the audio-harmony trombones.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for taking a listen

What do you think of my idea of having horns as a harmony group? say Sax Trumpet and trombone playing together.

Is there any merit to that idea? or is it difficult to attain?

I have placed a wish in the wishlist.

Best regards
George

George,

Really nice job on this. I agree with Josie. I like the horns. But maybe just a little too much of them. Great job on the mix! Keep up the good work!

Hi Michee,

My goodness! What an opening. The very first thought that sprang to mind was "Wow! I love it!". You've really raised the bar on this one. I can't believe how different it sounds from your material a few months ago. I've got to say that I'm definitely a fan of your singing without the doubling.

I'm real glad that I stopped by for the listen.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Steve,

Thanks for taking a listen and commenting.

I can't make my mind up about the horns.
I have a love hate relationship with them in this song.
If only I had knowledge of how a horn player would play along to someone singing (I know I could listen to lots of different songs to help me garnish some idea on how to go about it) but I think I would have a better understanding if I played horns myself.

Best regards
George

Hi Noel,

Good to hear from you again.

Thanks for the nice comments.

I have purchased some more patches for the EZmix (I use it in Reaper) and they make a difference to the vocal.

Best regards
George

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
