Hello everyone,



This one started out as a small composition featuring the Piano One vst.
Once I finished the arrangement and the vocal I had a strong sense of something missing.
I sort of got stuck with this song.
I handed it over to Anne-Marie trusting she'd come up with something interesting.

We're kind of into animation stuff lately, hence the intro and solo part of the song.
Hope y'all like it!

Rob

Anne-Marie! You must be a REALLY fast learner! That was iClone, right? And I know you just got it! I'm so jealous that you can learn so quickly! But MAN, it looks SO GOOD! I'm glad that you are getting involved in some of the new animation and video technologies, because you're the one who started it all!

Now, regarding the song: I thought it was very beautiful and extremely well sung by both of you! Individually you are both very impressive as singers, but as a team you are just PHENOMENAL!

Your melodies and harmonies aren't cookie cutter things that I can anticipate... they always take the high road, and your ability to pull it off never fails!

Your body of music has such strong appeal, I hope you can get a foothold in the industry, or at least establish an internet fan base that earns you some money and notoriety.

Once again, AWESOME JOB on the composition, mix, vocals and of course ... on the highly anticipated video! I am very impressed on all counts!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

Excellent work! I was fascinated by the high-quality piano sound firstly, by the attractive vocal of Rob secondly, by the beautiful melody thirdly, and finally by the graceful vocal of Anne-Marie. The overall quality is incredible.

Great one Rob and Anne-Marie, I loved the subtle mood changes, yet the piano remaining the dominate feature rhythmically.

Rob and Anne-Marie....

Beautiful song!

Your vocals are strong as ever (I cannot imagine how you are able to sound so "American"). The piano is done perfectly. Excellent arrangement and mix.

Nice video.

Beautiful.

This is easily one of my favorites from you so far. It's a beautiful song with a spot on arrangement and production.

"I handed it over to Anne-Marie trusting she'd come up with something interesting." Good instinct. Anne-Marie came through for you. You are a pair that perfectly compliments each other. I always look forward to your posts and videos.

For what you do, iClone is a much better match than Muvizu. I feel like the cartoonish nature of my animation ended up DETRACTING from your song rather than adding any appeal.

You tend to write relationship songs, and the beautiful figures and idyllic scenery that's possible in iClone will let you create your own version of an animated romance novel's cover. You are the right person with the right software, and I look forward to seeing what is to come!

Quite a beautifully presented arrangement. The video is exceptional, and strengthens the story-line so well.

Beautiful vocals and arrangement.

Thanks for another gem.

Beautiful song and video fits it well.

Always look forward to what you both come up with.

You'll have a number one in the charts if you keep turning out excellent stuff such as this!

Outstanding:
- write
- vocals
- audio/video production; and
- the incredible piano.

Everything and we mean everything is so cohesive. No
"why is that there?" moments. All you need and nothing
you don't.

You guys have created another high bar -- heck you started
a new bar...high.

Wow!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
