Rob & Anne-Marie,

This sounds good. The acoustic guitar sounds "just right".

I always enjoy hearing you sing in your own language!

Nice arrangement. Excellent mix. Vocals are a delight...

Much enjoyed.

Rob & Anne-Marie,
Lovey vocal and video - unsurprisingly pro level.
Excellent guitar solo and I really liked the use of the strings.
Wonderful songwriting.

Peter

Don't speak Dutch, but this oozes a sad, yet determined vibe to me.

Love the guitar work and the switches between finger-picking and single strums. Was that two different guitars? Or use of holds?

The harmonies were lovely and quietly supportive, as were the strings. The lead vocal is quality, and sounded great in the mix.

The Dutch language just have such a nice tone to it - especially when the vocal work is as good as it is on this track.


I really enjoyed listening - and it is for sure a song I will listen to more than once.

Pro level song in all aspects as per usual!

Love the vocals and harmonies. I actually like hearing songs sung in different languages, it lets me concentrate on the melody and tone of the vocal instead of being distracted by the lyrics.

My wife speaks dutch, I'll play this for her when she gets home.

The melody is really cool, has a strong late 60s vibe to it and works well with the chamber pop arrangement.
Singing in a language other than English is an excellent blind test for the song, structure and melody. You get a pass with distinction for this one.

Excellent production! Marked with quality choices throughout: the BIAB band, style, placement of solo, vocal track(s)..especially liked the stop at about 2:00, also how the music tracks never over-took the vocal, but always supporting...very good 'architecture' to the song. Glad I decided to listen, and thanks for sharing your fine work!

Rob & Anne-Marie,

I enjoy your folkier songs like this where the pure quality of your vocals and feel for a good melody shine through.
A lovely song that communicates the sad feeling in any language.

Robert

Wow - what a beautiful song smile Proof that music transcends language, because I don't speak a word of Dutch and felt the emotion just the same. You can feel the emotion in your voice and in the music behind it.

You should be proud of this one - really well done. Thanks for sharing!

Irrespective of the language the sadness and emotion says it all...

This is beautifully crafted. The vocal, melody, mix, band choice...everything is superb.

And, as always, the video sublimely works with the audio.

Lovely!

I’m loving this. Great fingerstyle guitar and lovely vocals. Thoughtful arrangement too and the Dutch Language sounds so attractive in this idiom. Great harmonies too. It’s a yes from me - as they say in x-factor.

RnAM,

I don’t speak Dutch and have no idea what this song is about—though I kinda do. And what I mean is the song is beautiful and drips with sadness and emotion. Wonderful tune—great production. Killer!

My humble regards,

Deej

Love the vocal and video...

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
