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!

J&B



Wow, those are some very big compliments!
And that is really appreciated.

Rob and Anne-Marie,



This is such a mighty work! The sound is incredible. I cannot begin to imagine just how many hours were spent putting this together and creating the video. This song showcases so much talent in so many fields of music (performing, arranging, mixing, production, etc.). You've both done a truly remarkable job.

Outstanding!!!

All the best,
Noel

Alan & Di


Hi Alan,

We can imagine that your time is scarce and Di's situation takes a lot of time (send her our love). So we appreciate your positive comments very much.

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



Hi Charlie, we already thanked you personally on Facebook. But once again your comments are very much appreciated!

Rob & Anne-Marie


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

Thank you Noel!

Now that's a comment We can appreciate!

Yes, this one took a lot of work. And not just the vocals, the MIDI part was the toughest to get properly balanced.

As others have so rightly said, this is an awesome production. It's got that epic sound that you do so well. The vocals are stunning, and there are some very interesting choices in harmony. The huge build is impressive.

The lyrics are no slouch, either wink.

Edit: I forgot to mention: nice work with balancing things. It's a very clean mix, uncluttered with only the instruments that need to be playing actually playing. And it sounds bigger than it actually is (if that makes sense), which really is impressive.

So all in all, sonically stunning.

But...

The song builds with what I think is a pre-chorus, the drums hammer away, and I'm expecting to hear a massive chorus...

Nope.

Later in the song, I hear the drums build and again I think this time it's announcing the chorus.

Nope.

So when the song ends, I'm thinking "Awesome song... but where was the chorus?", because a build on the drums always has to be followed by a massive chorus. That's why it's such an effective cliche!

Anyway, very nice work.

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

WOW! Standing ovation here! I think this is just phenomenal!

There are lots of things about your music that I find impressive! Your vocals (alone and combined) are a joy to listen to... But what really impresses me is the fact that your songs always sound original, not like a remix of something we've all heard before. Not only your chord patterns, but your melodies are so very interesting, even before you start layering those lush harmonies that I love to hear!

Your songs remind me of those created by people like the Beatles, Elton John, and other accomplished song writers. I hope you are doing everything in your power to get your music out where people of influence can hear it.

Above and beyond the music is your consistently tasteful video accompaniment. Your combined sensibilities have worked together to identify and capture some magical element, and you know how to weave the sorcery into every song you write. All I can say is, keep on doing whatever it is you're doing, because it works!

David,

Good to have you back!
But.... always picky wink
But not without a reason. We guess you definitely have a point.
We actually didn't realize this before.
We will definitely take this into account with our next song, but it depends on the songs.
We like to try all sort of styles wink

Thanks for listening so thoroughly!

Rob and Anne-Marie

PG Music News
Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

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.
