Last year I woke up one morning and suddenly for the first time in my life I realized that I’m not just getting older , I AM OLD. The result of that early morning revelation was this song. I appreciate all that take the time to listen and comment. Tom

There’s Only So Much Time

I’d love to tell you I’m not scared of growing old
I’m not sure I can sell you on something you already know

That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I hope I remember when we fell in love
it was a cold november but it turned out warm enough
I guess I'm more than OK with an early fall
At the end of the day it was worth it all


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


Live our lives in the day to day
Never think it will go away
all the love and dreams we’ve found
one day will come crashing down

Think too much it’ll mess you up
And just when you think you’ve had enough
Along comes a vision and then you see
clear as day this was meant to be

I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time

Tom,

What a great sound! Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING about this is as professional as anything out there in the market place. You really have outstanding production chops. I am constantly amazed at how incredible your mixes sound. There there's your signature vocals... first class!

Really, really, REALLY enjoyable.

Regards,
Noel

P.S. In relation to...

Now here it is a whole year later and the best revelation is that you're still here and pumping out great songs....

Great write, mix, production and performance.

Enjoyed this a lot and can so relate to it....

Tom,

All I can say is that I love this as much as some of my favorite Dylan tunes.

I am simply stunned.

Brilliant.

Hi Tommy,

There appears to be a lot of deep introspection within this well thought out song
You have sung, orchestrated, and condensed it all into a beautiful song

Tom,

A beautiful write. You are really packing a wallop lately in your lyric... so full of thought. "From the heart" lyrics.

Beautiful production and mix. Everything sounds great. The piano is particularly nice.

Your vocals continue to pack a punch, too.

Super.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
