Lyrics

I tried my best
To forget
But you keep coming
Into my mind

A long time ago
You captured my soul
Now I can't let you go

Love forever lasts a lifetime
Then you walked out of my life

Now I dream
Of our time together
Among the fields so green

Instrumental

Love forever lasts a lifetime
Then you walked out of my life

Now I dream
Of our time together
Among the fields so green

George,

Beautiful... It's good to hear you sing again. I still love your recording of my song "Echo" from a few years ago.

Really well done, George smile It's a very pretty tune, and I actually think the roughness in your vocals from the cold added an emotion rawness to it. You put some touching lyrics on this too, and they really compliment the beautiful music behind it.

Great job, and thanks so much for sharing!

This song was so lovely and had such a wonderful pacing to it. It have the song a very intimate, introspective feeling to it. I especially loved the instrumental.

Thanks for sharing!

George,

This is the first of your songs I`ve heard and I really enjoyed the simple warmth in the lyrics and your vocal. That slight waver in your voice is nice- reminds me of Roy Orbison.I hope you`ll post more.

Robert

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

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
