Hi Robert,

Pleased add "+1" to all the above. I closed my eyes, sat back and just listened. There are some very powerful moments in these words and music. Floyd really has the knack for getting the best out of his BIABettes!

All the best,
Noel

I hope that Robert doesn't mind me "hi-jacking" his thread for a moment.

If you haven't taken the time to listen to this song you need to.
It is a beautiful, powerful bit of songwriting.

It was part of Robert's FAWN efforts. I really liked it the first time I heard it.
Josie commented as well that it was one of her favorites from Robert.
From the opening strains of the piano, I was hoping there was a gospel choir ready to join in.
But there was not. So I asked Robert if he would mind me trying to add one.
He graciously agreed to allow me that opportunity. And sent me a copy of the song.

Since Josie asked "how did you get the choir sound?" - I thought a brief
description might be helpful to someone....

The "Choir" is nothing more than me singing a couple of times and then
processing that in RB using the TC Helicon plugin (provided by PGMusic!).
I loaded Robert's song in a DAW and sang along with it twice.
Once normally and once in a falsetto - both times, the same melody
that Robert sang (no harmonies).
I loaded Robert SGU file into RB and then loaded the 1st vocal I had done.
And then processed that with the Audio Harmony plugin.
Choosing "1 down, 3 up", selecting the Gospel setting under each voice,
and "medium choir" at the bottom.
That generated 12 harmonies. I saved each of those to a folder - using the mpg
option and allowing it to default to what comes up - a very low resolution.
(figured with a bunch of voices, the quality would not matter and it would save some space -
and to use any other resolution that many times is a pain,
because it returns to the low res every time)
I then did the same with the falsetto track.
Loaded all those (24 generated voices along with my originals)
in the DAW panned them all over the place, added a reverb to
the master out and....
Viola! Choir!

I mixed all those voices to one track ("the choir") to mix with Robert's
original track rather than have to work with them individually.

Now... go listen to Robert's song. It is STRONG - even without the choir.

Sorry I missed this one the first go round, but now that I hear the choir effect and what went into recording it I am glad I waited.

Robert can write with the best of them and when you get a pro like Floyd to collaborate you have to come up with a winner.

Later,

Nice indeed! Great collaboration. Reading how the choir was created makes me realize how little of the power of all this software I use. As an old dog these new tricks seem to be about a step or two ahead of me.

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
