With the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday,I would like to share one of the first songs I recorded using the BIAB software a few years ago. This song is called "Hope Beyond The Grave". Please forgive me for not remembering what Realtracks these were, but I do remember that everything was BIAB except my vocals, some synth work and my guitar (Godin nylon). Thanks for listening and may it be a blessing to you. Torrey.

Hope Beyond The Grave
Copyright 2002
Torrey Bliss BMI

Some say when we all die
When we've lived out our last day
That there's no hope when were gone
That we just all fade away

I have hope beyond the grave
I know there will come a day
When I'll walk through heavens door
I have a reason to believe
You died to set me free
You rose on the third day
I have a hope, hope beyond the grave

Lord when you walked on this earth
Seen by the one's who wrote your word
And they are words that bring life
Giving hope and peace of mind

Hi Torrey,

Very, very nice! A nice full musical arrangement to accompany the solid vocal. The organ on the right channel really rounds out the production. And your guitar work shines bright. This was a very enjoyable listen with a great lyric. best to you ...

Torrey,

That`s a very well crafted production for any BiaB user, let alone a newbie.
Your vocals are always excellent - expressive and smooth at the same time - and this is one of your best.
Nice guitar work too!

Robert

Torrey,

A very timely post on Easter Sunday here in Australia!

You've done a spectacular job with this. Your melody and lyrics resonate with musical talent, and your singing, arrangement and mix sound outstanding (and then some).

Your set of musical skills that is on display here show a master craftsman.

A super listen!

Regards,
Noel

Agreed with all the others, super track with outstanding vocals.

I loved the guitar work and the intro was an excellent start to a great production
Happy Easter Torrey,

Hello, Torrey

Happy Easter!
Very cool song with fantastic vocals and guitars.
Great arrangement with nice choices of RealTracks.
Unique chord progression as usual.
I love the progression back to Em via F at the end of the melody.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

A very good production with great vocals!
A touch of Alan Parson's I think.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
