Absolutely GREAT! Love your steel and guitar playing. Great job on the lyrics, and your vocals really shine on this one. Seems every song you write/produce just gets keeps getting better than the one before, if that's possible.

Other than the above complaints, I really like this one. smile

Steve

btw, congratulations on 23 years!

We definitely agree!
And on top of that great guitar work, we love the pedal!
RnAM, Thanks for the nice words and ongoing support. Tom

You are on a roll with your writing.... I love the fact that you brought this super song in at under 3 minutes with time to spare. That's a lost art in song writing. Lots of energy and a good topic.

Loved it
Herb, The tele is A Fender special run Baja in Vegas Gold Sparkle. I never thought that I would like the finish but it is a bad boy. Custom Shop Amer P/u's, Glossy thick neck, Brass vintage saddles, 4 way switch with S-1switching. I like it better than the Am Std at half the price. Thanks for the great comments. Tom

Are these files you're referencing BIAB loops and files or are they third party product?

Does " 7 piece multitrack form." meaning each drum,hi-hat, tom occupy an individual track in RB or another DAW or a drum kit mixed to an individual stereo file on a single track in BIAB?

My understanding of loops is ... well ... a misunderstanding. frown
Charlie, The drums are individual tracks for each one, Kick, snare,hat,etc. They are from Drums on Demand. I want to emphasize that the writing takes place in Biab, and the real tracks put it over the top with how well they fit into the final mix. Loops are great ,but Biab is much greater!

Tom,

I cannot believe that what I just heard is Band In A Box!!! That is an incredible mix, outstanding arrangement and expert presentation. Absolutely everything about "Perfect Match" says 'professional through and through'.

This should be on the radio with you singing it. I'm awestruck by what I've just heard.

Wow!

Regards,
Noel

Those drums sound great! Your production is ...well.. Perfect.

Mix. Perfect.

WOW.

I must admit though that I think this song is about my wife and I. Opposites do attract and I know if both of us were to sign up for match.com no one would have put us together, yet we have been married for 48 years.

PS - all I can add is this is what country is supposed to sound like
Thanks Mario, It's always nice to hear that a song resonates with others. Tom

"1 part brand new Telecaster, 1 part blow the dust off the steel,
1 part finally bought some studio monitors, 1 part 23rd wedding
anniversary , mixed carefully, not shaken or stirred."

All of which equals a man at the top of his game.

The first time we heard this we, well, heard it again on the monitors.
And then we listened on the living room "big system" and later we
listened in a good vehicle system. What the heck, I listened through
ear buds. And the point? It sounded fantastic on every device. The
clarity, the soundstage, the fine pickin' and the vocals...everything was
hittin' the note and in the pocket.

And then the lyric all chock full of great lines -- enough for several songs!

Dang boy, you doing good!!!!!

Hey Tommy ...

Is this coll or what? we vote for cool!

The pedal steel and single coil Tele sounds are perfect. And that ending is beyond great! You have your own sound and it's as good as any we've heard. Strong country that knows how to rock. Great song and performance, Tommy. And the mix is spot on.

Merry Christmas to you and yours ...

Alan & Di

Hi Tom.

I'm late checking in, as usual, but...

This is just PERFECT.

Everything about this screams out PROFESSIONAL.

Wonderful steel guitar and the Tele sounds amazing.

Superb vocals - your best ever.

Stunning mix.

Going back for another listen.

ROG.

What a treat it was to hear that - especially on a dark, rainy evening.

Top of your game, indeed.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

To watch Henry's video, click here.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela.

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

Band-in-a-Box® - My New Favorite Thing

Did you know we have a My Favorite Things forum? We encourage you to share your favorite features in Band-in-a-Box and RealBand there, along with what features you use the most and why - we LOVE getting feedback!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
