Hi all,

I wrote the first verse of this song over twenty years ago, and although I've gone back to it again and again, I could never finish it.

I guess you have to have lived through a lyric like this before you can write it properly!

Have done a few versions of it this year - think this will be the final mix.

All comments welcome

Thanks.

After your wait, you have certainly done this justice. Very clear production and sharp vocals. Tells a great story and nice guitar soloing there.

Great lyrics, super backing tracks and an outstanding vocal.

Outstanding mix as well.

Lover it.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for listening and for your kind comments. I think this is my longest gap between starting and finishing a song.
I guess the point is: don't write just to finish, but write when it's right!

Still listening to A New Day Is Born - I really love that song!

Take care

Martin

Actually, it probably makes more sense to thank you all in one post rather than clog up the forum.

Never sure which is best - is there a rule of etiquette regarding this?? I like to return the compliment but not sure which they prefer on here?

Anyway:

Eddie, thank you for listening and your comments.

PG, thank you too. I'm pleased you both feel the sound is up to scratch. Taken me a while of trial and error to get there!

Steve, thanks for listening and the words of encouragement. Hopefully I can keep it up!!

Mario, Wow what can I say but thank you very much. My day is made! Glad you liked it and thank you for taking the time.

All the best and thank you one and alll

Martin

Hey Martin,

I like this song. Great hook "cry out loud". My only small nit is that I would have left "lonely" in instead of taking it out and just saying with "the crowd" in the last refrain - kind of threw me singing along...

Enjoyed it very much.

Hi Josie,

Nice to hear from you as always!

Glad you liked it.

I'm a firm believer in the "sing it how it comes" school rather than the "sing it once and copy and paste" school. Makes for a more varied and heartfelt vocal. All the best singers in the world have done it.....so if it's good enough for them lol.

Yes they catch you out when singing along, but only til you know the song then you always remember it.

Thanks again for taking the time out to listen - always grateful for your comments.

Take care

Martin

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

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!
