Our new project:

Closing in

This one was inspired by the British crime drama TV series: The Fall.
Be aware, this is not your usual RnAM song. Nor is the video, which took us weeks to create (and may be slightly brutal to some).
You know that we like to experiment with different styles. This one doesn't sound like BIAB at all but really, it is ;-)
A very special thanks to Brent for his killer solo at the end.

Comments are encouraged.

Lyrics:

Yes it's me again
I'm just standing here, watching you, staying close
I could even find you with my eyes closed
that and more, whenever I wanted to

Now you're in the store
I'm just watching you flirt to the guy behind the register
You're buying lipstick, mascara, eyeliner
You want to pay, oh sure you're gonna pay

Okay, you're out of there
Now from the looks of it you didn't really want him, did you?
Yeah, hell I know what you want, I was in your house
Just climbing a couple of stairs

I was passing some pretty pictures there in the hallway
A good-looking guy, a little child, uh.. two little children
Forget about them, there's only me!

It's time for you to leave that old life behind, as they say
Well, think of it more as leaving this world behind, ha ha ha

The voice like an angel
But what did you mean by 'not wanting me?'
Is there any such thing?
ooh...

Your lights gone out.....

When the first two reviews contain the words "AMAZING", "INCREDIBLE", "SUPERB", "WOW" and "OUTSTANDING" , you know you're in for a treat before you even click on the link!

Any time I see your names attached to a project, my expectations skyrocket... but even from such a lofty starting point I was surprised in a good way by this! You have always been at the forefront of this forum when it comes to video productions, but MAN! This is some cool stuff!

(Translation: I don't know how to do any of it, and I'm jealous but impressed)

The song itself is way edgy compared to your usual relationship songs. But in a way, it's a relationship song too. I can see this being used in an indie film.

I loved the way you made the statue sing. Once I figure out how you did it, I'll be stealing that idea. ;-)

The guy in front of the train with all the facial expressions.. was that a 2d photo that you tweaked to create the movement? If so, I'm very impressed! Very natural looking movement

The 3d faces made of light are also very interesting .. and especially in this song it works as powerful imagery.

Some of the stock pictures and video you used seem too good for anybody to make them available for free! Good job finding this stuff! I know how long it takes to scour the web for usable assets that you can use in videos.

Anyway... great job all around.. I am very impressed by the whole package. If I weren't almost speechless, this would be a lot longer....

Rob and Anne-Marie,

This was way too as you say "brutal" for me since it was written from the point of view of a criminal about to kill someone. So thank you for the warning up front.

My personal taste aside, I thought the song and the video were both very well done. The video was edgy without crossing the gore line with cool effects. The arrangement and production of the song fit the theme well and Rob's vocal was convincing.

Hi R & AM

Yes, very dark, but also very good.

A super song and very innovative - particularly liked the sawtooth synth. Great vocals too.

Some nice touches in the video. Great bit of morphing early on which was very effective. I could easily have seen some more of that.

Very professional all round.

ROG.

Zowie.

Y'all just keep moving the bar higher and higher.

Great use of loops! Was the synth a loop? The vocals are perfect for this. The production and mix are excellent.

The video is one of your best ever. All those things that Pat mentioned... outstanding...

(Brent's solo at times seemed stretched a bit far - phase-y ... but I think that is only because we are all familiar with BIAB and what happens to them when stretched... "outside" listeners would likely not think that...)

Sensational. Absolutely professional, and delivered with a massively high standard from every angle.

The video production is absolutely awesome.

Musically creative.

You've excelled and set an extremely high standard with this one.

Hi Josie,

Well... we hope we didn't shock you too much.
Anyway, thanks for appreciating it, although the video is not your style smile.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
