A nit: the mix lacks punch. Maybe I'm just used to everyone compressing the hecks out of their songs, but I'd love to hear a louder mix.



Couldnt agree more. Superb!

I also think that the backing needed a bit of Mastering "Ooomph". Its really good but just needs (IMO only) a bit of a compression boost.

BTW - how did you get hat octaving sounding Lead line please? did you use a Pitchfork or something?

Cheers

Thanks rayc for the listen and comment! I was purposely shooting for a late 70’s Doobies’ ala Michael McDonald sound on this (if only I could sing like him-one of my favorites). Anyway, I always wanted to try one in that vein and got a little inspiration and went for it. Thanks, T

Hi Torrey.

Sort of an unusual style but very very good.
What a rich sound.

Cheers.

This is great! Got that late 1970's radio sound. England Dan, Doobie Brothers, that sort of thing. Well done.

Thanks Hugh for all those kind words! I also try to make the intro very inviting to the listener and set the stage for the lyrics. To me, along with the chorus, the intro is a vital part of a good song! Thanks again, T

Thanks John for your comments! Oddly enough, back in the day, I never listened to or appreciated Todd Rundgren. I have only recently over the last few years come to appreciate his music and style. It probably does show up in some of my compositions. Thanks, T

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
