Here is a little novelty song I've been playing around with. It still needs work but it's getting there. It's all realband various bits of different style instruments plus a couple of loops that seemed to fit nicely from a third party source.

It's about a fella who has a distinct liking for "Things" that come in "Two".

See what you think.

Hi Rob,

This is a very inventive song! A great listen. The Realband arrangement is a real credit to you. Sounded very professional to my ears.

All the best,
Noel

Hey toucher,

I like, what a fun song and well put together production.
Only one suggestion. I'd add some reverb to the mix to give the performance a bit of stage presence.

Tim

Thanks guys, it is still a work in progress somewhat, but if y'all like it I guess I'm on the right track.

Realtracks are a real treat to work with and give us so much flexibility. My midi sound sources are okay but not as good as the realtracks, and the human touch is also a factor.

Even the girls on some other forums seem to like this little fun poker.

Thanks for the input.

Thanks Paul,

It started in BB as most of my songs do, but they always end up in Realband. It just seems to be my preferred work flow. Appreciate the comment.

Hi Rob,
This is one fun song! I really like your lyrics and backing tracks.

In addition to Tim’s reverb suggestion I would also like to hear your vocal more up front. You have a good voice so showcase it!

Mario, Bob & Steve,

Thanks for the comebacks guys. Knowing how particular you all are with your tracks, its very gratifying to be complimented by you three. I gotta find time to get to a final or maybe final rework soon.

Can't get it to play, but I went to your Reverbnation, especially like "Forever is Forever"

Rob, very nice work and fun listen. I use a similar workflow plus Audacity. I'm still in the bottom of the learning curve with RealBand but I like it a lot.

Thanks for the listen.

Malcom, Val, SD and Don,

Thanks so much for the listen and comments, I also use Audacity from time to time after mixdown, to raise or lower overall mix, as well and occasionally insert silence with the silence generator etc. Mostly Realband does the work though.

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!
