Here's our latest song. It involved 27 tracks in Cubase (of which most of them were layered vocal tracks).
We created the basic arrangement in RMCA real-time MIDI chord arranger Pro, so what you're hearing is actually pure MIDI. But the GM Soundfont Rob has been working on for years did it's magic.
We used BIAB to analyze the chords and the Melodist function helped us big-time to create every individual vocal line.
 
Hope you like it, as always comments are welcome!
 
Rob & Anne-Marie

To get back to you

A different world, where time has gone
Am I older then, am I holding on
And where are you
Are you real…..

I can almost hear you breathe
I can almost feel you near
I will always call your name
But is it still the same
Can you even understand
Just how lonely it is
Can you see it now
Knowing all there is
Is it real….

Are you older now
Will it always be this way
Where’m I now, am I dreaming
Where’s my peace, what’s my fate
Is hope flowing out of me…

I’ve lost a hundred dreams
I’ve cried a thousand tears
I’d walk a million miles
To get back to you some day

When my faith has gone
When my eyes can’t see
Call my name
Call my name…..

I can almost hear you breathe
I can almost feel you near
I will always call your name
But is it still the same
I’ve lost a hundred dreams
I’ve cried a thousand tears
I’d walk a million miles
To get back to you

Rob and Anne-Marie what a wonderful piece of music. Vocals were just superb and the layering what a cool effect it gives the song. Lovely lyrics and as always a super vocal. Well done... Production was a work of art...

RnAM, This is a fine production and the layered vocals are a real treat to the ears. An ambitious arrangement that really works. Great mix and a big sound. Very much enjoyed. Tom

Very intriguing chord progression and the melody, makes you listen to it several times to really get used to what is going on. Progressive pop I would say smile Fantastic vocals!

Twenty seven tracks?
Wow, I overload after seven.

Rog gave the perfect description. We really can't add much to it.

"A super track with a very BIG sound and wonderful stereo wash.

Fabulous stacked vocals.

A very sophisticated and clever arrangement and production.

Well up to your usual high standard."

A BIG sound that sounds as though it came from a BIG studio.
And as always the video was the perfect companion to the audio.

Superb!

Rob & Anne-Marie,

Everyone has already said what we were thinking - and more. That's what we get for showing up late (Di is very ill and it has consumed much of my time).

THose vocals are so lush and full and fit so perfectly in the mix. This is just so danged good. Congratulations on a wonderful song and production.

Alan & Di

Oh my, such a stunning and beautiful piece. You guys work so hard getting each detail right but the end result seems to the ear to be the result of effortless talent.

It is hard to imagine and a testament to BIAB and your natural abilities to how close in quality your works match up to big, expensive productions of some of the world's most talented music coming from major studios by major artists.

At different times I feel a vibe in this song of The Cars, 10cc and vocally a similarity to Air Supply.

This is another masterpiece. Loved it.....

Charlie
