J&B,

Absolutely wonderful throughout!

I would like permission to submit it for airplay in London and New Zealand. If you agree, just PM me with a mp3 copy.

They are playing my far less professional-sounding stuff. There is no money involved but the exposure is priceless.

The queue is quite long, probably 3-4 weeks to schedule it. I'll be sure to tell you when it is scheduled. It will stream in FM.

Janice & Bud,

I'm glad you re-posted this jewel. I love every part of it, but I again have to mention, that, Janice, you got a heck of a voice. A very well-written song, sung and played with so much feeling. Just great !

Thanks Janne. We appreciate your comments about the mix and the vocals. We'll check out the Corrs.

We appreciate you mentioning both the production and the performance!

It was a fun revisit.

Everything about the track is top-notch! Congrats on a real jewel!


Thank you for the nice review. And, yes, we are typically all about simplicity in our productions. The result can be either boring or effective and we are happy that you felt it worked!

So well written and sung. Languid, melancholy and overflowing with heart.


And the production fit it perfectly.


So glad you brought this beautiful song back!

Hello,

I've been far for some months and when I return....here's a great song from J&B & Floyd.
Excellent music and melody as usual. Great feeling in the sound.

Super listening.
Sergio

Janice and Bud,

This is superb listening. I love the clarity of the mix and how everything shines and sparkles with the sound of professional.

When I first heard it, I immediately made a note because this is a mix that I will be revisiting when I want get ideas on how to add production quality to my own work.

This is a terrific song that the both of you and floyd have created. And when Janice sings it's impossible to hit 'stop' until it finishes.

I enjoyed this a great deal.

Regards,
Noel

Man!

I swear I remember writing something on this weeks ago! What happened?

Maybe a hurricane or something.

Anyway, this is great, I love this y'all. Just in time for another hurricane I guess.

smile

Wonderful production.

I did not hear the original; but I loved what I heard with this.

I will admit, when I first saw that you didn't include the lyrics I was a little bummed that you maybe forgot. Then in listening I was actually made aware of two things.

1-I couldn't read ahead of the melody...which is really nice; and actually pretty natural to how you normally might experience a song.

2-When it's mixed and performed really well, they aren't needed. You can simply understand every word! What a concept.

Vocals...I've got nothin' to say. They speak for themselves. (REALLY great!)

The instrumentation is what I love to hear. VERY present; never in the way. It's orchestrated, arranged and executed well. A really nice job in knowing "when to" and "when not to." It really makes all the difference.

I will stop gushing now.

Tryin'? Ah...no. Succeeded!


Dang man, you make us feel like we know what we are doing! Something we frequently doubt smile

Not only are we very grateful for the wonderful review but also for you taking the time to respond in detail. That means a lot!

"Clean and warm" is our goal on this type of production and we much appreciate you noting it. Sometimes things seem to fall into place with objective...but not always. It's that notion of improving by having nothing left to take away rather than nothing left to add.

Thanks!!!

J&B

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
