This song is still in the works.... working on new vocal tracks.

The instruments are a combination of live played and Real Band.

The song is called Come & Go... recorded in my home studio.

Brilliant track.

Very smooth and professional production and a good mix. Particularly liked the voice - at times I thought it had shades of Stevie Nicks in the phrasing and the inflections.
You say you're still working on new vocal tracks and it would be nice to hear some harmony in there, but it's still a really good track as it stands.

Thanks.

ROG.

The vocalist is a local girl who has a country/bluegrass CD out and records in a studio owned by her dad. Her name is Stevee Rose. I heard about her through some musician friends and contacted her.
As I mentioned in the first post, we are working on a better take on the vocals. we plan on several unique takes for layering, as well as harmony to fatten the choruses. I'll likely repost this when it's done.

I'm one town away and have my studio where I recorded and mixed the musical tracks....The tracks are a mix of RB tracks and live stuff.

I use Sonar X1 as my DAW....

Guitarhacker, don’t mess with this too much as it is pretty good as is! Maybe just a harmony part would do it.

Hi Guitarhacker,

Really nice. As others have already mentioned, the final mix sounds great, very professional. Please pass on my compliments to the singer, too. She's got a brilliant voice.

Regards,
Noel

I agree with everyone else - great song, singer and a solid production. I can easily imagine how this song is going to shine with another level of polish.

My only thought is that song feels short. The first verse feels like a second verse to me - it's very abstract. I'd like the first verse to set up a specific scene of the ex-lovers "coming and going" before moving on to generalities.

Keep in mind this advice is coming from someone who's never written a successful song!

Verse 2 has the lyric "to mends our broken heart", which should probably be "to mend our broken hearts."

Anyway, really well done.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks to all the replies...

I have been out of town for a few days....

Plans are to record a new vocal track fixing the issues with this version.... record a few "layering" tracks and 2 harmony tracks remixing primarily the vocal tracks only.

I will post the "final" version back here as soon as we have it ready.

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.
