this song may be a little quiet. Let me know what you think.
Rob

Alone Again

Its four in the morning and my tear drops keep falling your gone again.
You just cant stay with me and so you will leave me I'm alone again with out you.

As I stare ceiling your harsh words keep on stinging my heart they do.
Oh I need you near me to hold and to cheer me alone again with out you

Chorus
Please lonely nights wont you stay away don't come back again.
You've befriended me but I don't need you here when I'm all alone.

Bridge

Those minuets keep passing and I keep on asking are we through this time.
Oh I could not take it my heart you would break it two and throw it away

Hi Rob,

Sounds pretty danged good to me. You are so good with these ballads and the big band standards. The mix is clean and very well balanced. The vocal oohs and aahs are a real nice touch on the chorus well as the response b/g vocals. Really nice!

Alan

Great vocal! Background vocal are a nice touch too, makes the song special. Definitely sounds like something Elvis might have done as others have mentioned.
Mix sounds good at this end through my studio headphones.

Rob, I don't know why "easy" listening has such a bad reputation...this is surely 'easy' to listen to, and a great pleasure. We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion.

It's got the feel you were intending..your voice fits perfectly, and the background ooh's were right on. A great slow dancing song.

One suggestion...I would have liked to hear a little solo in the break around the 1:45 mark.

Thanks for posting!

Most excellent. Everything sounds great on our monitors.

You own this genre.

As Tano Music said "We need a portion of slow/soft compositions like this in our music diet--my opinion." Dittos to that.

Enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed this one, Rob smile Very reminiscent of the 50's and 60's - I'm feeling some Elvis vibes here. I particularly enjoyed the background harmonies. They flow incredibly well and help the emotion hit harder.

Really well done! Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi Blue. I'm working hard to improve the quality of my recording.
I really feel that studio one is going to help me do that.
Thanks for listening. Rob

Hello Tano. Really appreciate your thoughtful comments.
Thank you also for your suggestions.
May re-look at this song at a letter date.
Thanks for listening Rob

A really nice song, well written and nicely done. I also was waiting for a guitar or pedal solo that wasn't there, but still very well done.

Rob,
Very classy vocal and love the background oohs.
The mix sounds good and clear ( maybe a little quiet, but its a low key song).
Enjoyed.

Robert

Rob, that studio one certainly seems to work for you.
You've come up with a very pro-sounding song with very cool backing vocals as well.
Nice, nice, nice

Superb vocals and vocal arrangement. A real Elvis vibe as noted by others.

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.
