Hi y'all,

Here's a solo project I finished about six weeks ago.
This was a lot of work, and not just the video.
The pitch of the vocal was way out of my comfort zone (but I just couldn't resist ;-)), and partly because of that the audio took weeks of tweaking and balancing.
Hope you like the result.

For those who may find the video distracting here is the AUDIO VERSION

As always comments are encouraged.

Rob

ps. Check out the back of the dress of the female model in the choruses. You'll see a picture of Anne-Marie's face ;-)

A nice one Rob, I enjoyed it. Your pitch-perfect voice sounds great here. Congratulations on conjuring such a professional, big production out of BIAB and polishing it so well.

Cool performance and your effort on the vocal was well rewarded.
The video is very distracting - it doesn't match the emotional content of the song - well, when the male character is miming particularly.
I found I enjoyed the song more when I scrolled down to type.

I really like the 80's feel of the song, would fit perfectly on the Top Gun soundtrack smile Realtrack selection in BIAB is already so extensive that it can really create the exact atmosphere for many kind of songs. The mix is excellent and your singing sounds really professional.

Hi Rob,

great song and professional vocals.
Like rayc I find the video distracting. Very artificial compared with the beautiful song.
Enjoyable listen though.

Rob,

Terrific listen. Super vocal! Another cool production. You always find things in BIAB that I've never even noticed. - the Bass, Electric, FunkPumpingQuarters and RealDrums: RetroPop - those were a real surprise...

Beautiful song. Great mix, as always. Top shelf stuff...

Rob,

Wow! You were sure up there in the top end of the tenor range! I admire your talent. The production of this is fantastic. You've really honed your skills when it comes to getting a full, rich and vibrant sound in the mix. This is definitely one to be proud of. It was well worth all the effort.

It was an interesting touch to have Anne-Maree woven into the dress's fabric.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Rob,

Your ability to take a BIAB production to such a level, and I mean ‘commercially viable’ level is really awesome. Everything about this song, from the choice of music, the vocals, the recording, the mix and mastering is just absolute professional.
Its been said, and will be said again, you’re a beacon of light to those working with BIAB,,,, Thank you

Paddy G

Hey y'all, stunning production and absolutely nothing to apologize for regarding the
vocal. It's a powerhouse..

Also, this showcases a remarkable selection of RT's -- wow, does it ever work!

Just an outstanding production -- one of the best posted here this year.

PS We haven't watched the video yet -- I have flash turned off but will
switch it on for PG Music. No problems with linked videos but the forum
requires flash for embedded vids. Someday flash will disappear. Pardon
the rant -- we are Mac users and Apple does not like flash -- at all smile

Hello Ray,

Thanks for your comments. About the mimicking part of the main character, you're probably right.
Probably should've left that out. By the way it's virtually impossible to get the lip-synching exactly in sync.

hi Peter,

Thank you, glad you didn't hear any reaching in my voice.
( I had to punch-in the first line of the chorus at least 20 times ;-))
