Well, that's my sort of thing! I love everything about this track, especially the guitar parts - excellent! I love the engineering and mi: nice and tight and chunky. Super vocals, especially the harmonies. A knock out track!

What a great opening!!

Drums sound great! I love a "leathery" snare and this one POPS!

Chris' vocals and harmonies are outstanding.

Delicious guitar! Sweet!

A nice change up at the end to make it even MORE listenable...

Excellent all around. Great listen.

Thanks very much, Floyd! Drums are processed through iZotope Neutron.

And yeah, that bit at the end is the best part of the song for me, thanks for mentioning that smile

Very, very good.

I wouldn't change a thing here - thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by, Deryk, I appreciate it!

- All the backing tracks and the comped drum track were hitiin’ the note.

Lastly, but not least, the mix is perfecto.

Kudos!!!

J&B


Thanks for mentioning the outro, that's my favorite part of the song smile

For the guitars, one of the things I've learned in my old age is that less is more, especially when working with a vocalist. I always listen back and ask myself if the guitar is adding anything to the song, if not, it's gone.

And thanks for the comments on the mix also! Makes my day to hear that from someone like you smile

Thanks, David!

Guitar is a Strat through S-Gear, but I also do some processing after the fact. Always trying new things to try and get that ultimate tone, sort of a Holy Grail thing I guess smile

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
