This song contains only 1 real track #364 Acoustic Guitar. I then took the left side of stereo guitar and deleted the right and vice versa. I then put it in DAW to create the stereo. If you have the capibility to do this try it you will be amazed at the difference. I probably should have panned the guitar a little further apart, and might have gotten them lined up better volume wise but you have to move with the 5090 challenge. I hope you will give any tips and suggestions so I can try and incorporate once the challenge is over. Thanks!

I really like the guitar but I am not sure exactly what you did. I'll play around with it. BIAB is really a great tool that can be used in so many ways.

Nice song.

Poster: jptjptjpt I really like the guitar but I am not sure exactly what you did.

Response: As you know when you make a wave file of the instruments from band in a box they are in stereo. This is a neat trick my father in law taught me. I took the stereo guitar and high lited only the left side and deleted it; I saved this file as finger picking acoustic right. I then reloaded the original stereo guitar again and highlited only the right side of the file and deleted it. This was saved as Finger Picking acoustic left. That way when you load into your daw you have both sides seperate. Listen to them seperate and you will see a huge difference from having both side together. I think this trick would really make a huge difference in a multiple instrument mix, for example take and load the left side of the guitar track on one track and then the right side of a piano track and notice how clean it is and notice the seperation you get. I hope this helps.

Are you sure you're not John Starnes in disguise (Closer Than A Heartbeat, Holy Ghost Do It Again, etc.)? I love your voice and your dedication to your beliefs come across loud and strong in your words and music. Nice job!

PgF,
Nice work on these songs. Good luck in the 50/90 Challenge! I hope someday I have 50 written, never mind the 90 day part!
Regarding the stereo track splitting effect, It really makes a great improvement. There is a function in the RB track menu that does this automatically. Have you tried it? Might save some effort.

This is my 7th 5090 challenge song. The vocal is uneven, I am going to have to work on that later. The reason was I had to break the vocal between chorus and verse because of the difference in eq to make them go through the mix. All feed back is welcome.

7. Fly Away

This is song 10 in the 50-90 Challenge. It was inspired by my own life experience and Proverbs 24:16. I am always sad when I hear someone say they believe they can be saved and then lost again. Because when the Son sets you free you are free indeed. Not believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He died on the cross for your sins, and then rose again is the only way not to be saved.

10 Jesus Never Left

Robert, your songs are always uplifting with super lyrics. Your vocals are always spot on, as are your various backing tracks. Having said that I do believe that “Jesus Never Left” is your best to date.

Two thumbs up!
