Well, here is my 2nd effort on the trusty iPad! Both my Mac and PC are still on the blink. I'm enjoying the feel and portablilty of the iPad. Auria is a strong daw with some really good plugins.

This one is called Love Will Never Give Up On You. I have some friends who have gone through some devastating events in their life recently, and I was thinking of them when I wrote this one today.

I played the piano, and the strings and flute softsynths, and the rest is all RealTracks.

Love Will Never Give Up On You

Here are all the Realtracks used...

RealTracks in song: 2474:Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085

RealTracks in song: 2542:Pedal Steel, Background ModernBalladAtmosphere Ev16 065
RealTracks in song: 2028:Fiddle, Soloist CountryAndy Ev 065

Have a blessed day!

Hi Steve. Always love your smooth sound and beautiful voice and this is no exception. Good job.

Ps did I miss the memo about BIAB being available on an iPad? Mind you, don't have an iPad but do have an iPhone that I am joined to the hip with.

Beautiful write, Steve. The chorus is killer.

Your productions are always classy. This is yet another.

Beautiful vocal (as always).

Super nice! A great listen.

Nice in so many ways.

Insightful lyrics and that BGV chorus is right on time.

Yeah, really enjoyed that song.

Thanks so much, Josie! I always appreciate hearing from you. I have the iPad Pro 12.9, so it's easier to see with my "mature" eyes. smile

There are a few really good daw's for the iPad. I'm using Auria Pro, with an iRig Pro interface. Everything is very portable. And I have practically zero latency with Auria on the iPad.

Since my Focusrite interface quit working on my PC, I am still able to use the laptop's built-in sound for Mand In A Box, and then transfer the individual RealTracks generated over to the iPad for using in Auria. Very simple, but surprisingly powerful setup,

Steve,

Fantastic song, really enjoyed it. Astonishing that you finished it on an iPad.
I must check out that DAW.

The production is so clean and open and such excellent vocals (both solo and choir).
That is also such a beautiful rich piano sound (what piano/plugin is it?).

Cheers
Rec

Thank you! Always like hearing from you! No, you didn't miss a memo. smile I am still able to use the built in sound card on my laptop, so I do the BIAB generations on the pc, and then move them to the iPad, where I use the Auria DAW app. I have the iPad Pro 12.9, so the screen isn't so small, and I can hold it up to my nose if I need to, to see. smile

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!
