Floyd,

I certainly hope your life is happier than some of your music.

Another great song from you.

The story in the lyrics, your vocals, the mix.
Your voices have some amount accentuating power at crucial times.
The change in the drums, the cello certainly add to the song.

Don't drink anymore, but after "couple of beers there would be tears". (good song lyric)

I like the Acoustic guitar/s in the mix.

Thanks for sharing Again!

Hi Floyd,

Like all your other work that I've listened to, this shines. The way you've built the arrangement felt perfect and adding the cello was a touch of inspiration. The chord progression you've chosen also complements the emotional nature of these lyrics really, really well. Once again, I'm very impressed.

All the best,
Noel

Floyd

A good pop song. It's a really good mix you have made, your vocal sits really well in the mix. Can you reveal how you record your vocals? Maybe the secret is simply that you sing well and clean However, bass and drums a little vague, but it is probably because I listened to your song on my laptop speakers.

Billy Joel put it best, "..man what are you doing here?"

I have heard a couple of your tunes over the past weeks and, now don't take this wrong, and I also don't intend to put down any of the other talent who put their songs on this page, but... I think you are a ringer. Your sound is way too pro to be buried here in our little forum home. Tell us true, you do make a living in music with that voice, right?

Man, you are producing some nice songs. Any one of these could worm their way into the Nashville song stream and get picked up by a major artist. Good luck.

Great production. Great use of BIAB.

Frank - thanks for the listen and the comments. I make this stuff up, you know..

Josie - appreciate it. Don't know which I like better "beautiful song" or "made me want to hear it again"?

Noel - have I mentioned... you do say the nicest things.

Jan - I think there are others on this forum who get much cleaner vocal recordings than I do - check out Noel96, mootsman, Steve Young to name just a few - I always wonder what is their secret? I'd be happy to give a quick rundown of how I do mine, but I'd like others to "chime in" with their setups/methods so we all might learn something.

So I plan to post in the "Tips and Tricks" section - look for something like "Recording Vocals" in the next few days...

jpt3 - Thanks. You never know... BIAB certainly improves the "presentation".

jazzmandan - I'll take that as a compliment (a big one actually). The last time I can recall getting paid for music/singing was about 1979 doing solo acoustic sets. If by "pro sound" you mean the overall sound, most of that credit goes to PGMusic and BIAB. If you were referring somehow to "that voice", heck, that's just pure luck. I guess I can sing a bit. You're pretty much born with (or without) that. It's not like I had to learn anything or practice at all. Good musicians (I don't consider myself one) on the other hand spend years learning and practicing and then watch the singer (who just had to show up) get all the attention.

FJ you are killin me, only God knows what I would have done in my life for the gift you were born with, and me without. And just for the record, I can sing "a bit", you can sing "a lot". But I am glad to see you are using your gift as I greatly enjoyed listening. Keep em comin.

I just visited the web page and I am quite confused by your saying you haven't made money since 1979. The web page has pictures of what appears to be an 8 piece working band with professional gear and a healthy catalog.

Could you clarify? You are obviously not a struggling novice here....

eddie,

The band is fake. The pictures - my nieces and my son's friend. The "drummer" is a kid I play golf with - I handed him my headphones and a drum stick (I could only find one) and took his picture. The pic of "fingers" playing guitar is Kevin's head "photoshopped" on my "guitar-playing body", etc. etc.

The CD is (of course) all song that I wrote. I played most everything myself except drums which were pieced together from a drum CD (that was before having BIAB - I hardly play anything now). The exceptions - The tracks to Pawnshop were done in a Nashville studio when my co-writer on that one did a CD and he allowed me to use the tracks (the Tennessee Fat Cats played on it - the pedal steel is Cowboy Eddie Long who used to tour with Hank, Jr.) The piano on "Up To No Good" is a guy who played for the Oak Ridge Boys band - a friend of a friend, don't recall his name - he came to my house and did that for me.

I've sold enough downloads to JUST cover the cost of putting it "out there" - as is often the case, to family and friends.

I'm an old fart. Not a pretty one, at that. Who wants to see that????

What a hoot - I love it . You are not the first one to put a pretty girl on the cover to sell a product. On top of that you really had us all going... and it is BIAB after all. Heck. you should get a award for using the media to your advantage. But tell me this or fully distroy the illusion - that is you singing, right?

And I was getting ready to call you for a booking.... JUST to meet "Pickles".....

I put my picture up in spite of myself. The running joke in our band was that we'd have a raffle and the winner got to spend the night with me. 2nd place was a whole weekend....

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
