Hi MS!

I really liked the way you put this song together! You have a flair for using dynamics to good effect. And the chord progression spun off to a logical and pleasing variation. That's something I look for, but don't always hear on showcase tunes.

I'd say you also do a great job of picking styles that match the theme of your song. And the vocals sat well in the mix too. Your intros and outtros are well considered... that's a weak point for a lot of people.

You ask not to be judged on your singing... but when you post something you have no choice but to accept the responses you get. Sorry.

Actually, you have several very good qualities to your voice... you sing with confidence and enthusiasm, and you have a rich tonality that I would just LOVE to have. You also have a very cool natural vibrato thst doesn't sound contrived to me. The closest thing to a problem is something that is easily corrected: your intonation. Not a deal killer of course.. but the overall quality of your songs is so good that if you doctored your vocals just a bit, the total package would go through the roof IMO.

Check out Melodyne. It is capable of making exactly the kinds of touch-ups that will take your songs to the next level.

Keep up the good work... you should be very proud of the successes you've had so far. Keep building on them. I look forward to hearing more from you as time goes on

Great Job of Mixing! Like the Lyrics too! Don't beat yourself up about singing, a lot of singers don't like their own voice! Mine will kill any cat in a hundred yards(backyards that is!))

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
