Old song, lost the original file, but it's all BIAB.

When I saw that you had posted a song

I had to jump right in and listen

They're always so good and I am not disappointed.

A powerful and emotion-filled ballad

the piano is super and the whole mix is excellent to my ear

enjoyed the listen,

Kenny

A beautiful melody that fits comfortably. The lyrics are heart-breaking but have that need-to-be-heard quality about them. Your warm vocals do the trick. Touched my heart.

Beautiful poignant ballad. Lovely vocal and comfortable melody.
A pretty but quite sad song.

A very pleasant song and use of BIAB.
The only nit is some serious essing - probably due to reverb as it often grabs and accentuates those things.

Bob,

This is a wonderful listen.

Like Kenny said, "When I saw that you had posted a song, I had to jump right in and listen". That was exactly how I felt too.

I love the lyrics in your opening verse...

Quote:
You don't miss the water
Till the well runs dry
You don't miss the laughter
Till it's time to cry
You're busy building castles in the sand
The rising tide will never understand

To me, these words are such powerful truths and they caused me to just sit here thinking about and reflecting on life in general. They lead into "Then it's gone..." so well.

Every way I look at it, you really are a very skillful songwriter... you're the whole package, melody, lyrics, vocals, arranger, producer.

As I said at the start, this is a wonderful listen.

All the best,
Noel

Bob, we are all enriched by you posting this poignant song and as Noel pointed out it contains "powerful truths."

We are glad you found it in the archives as it is remarkably good...in all the ways we tend to measure song goodness smile

It is a fine write and vocal and the production sounds superb on our monitors.

Thanks for sharing!

Noel said it all right there. And that is ALWAYS the case with your songs.

We are fortunate to have you here among us. We are lucky to get to hear your music.

Simply. Beautiful.

To everyone who took the time to listen and comment; thanks. I know it's a lousy mix, but I couldn't find the original Sonar file to re-do it properly.

Appreciate the listens and comments.


Regards,


Bob

Bob, enjoyed this much.some notes I took while listening:
Really like how you started the lyric with the Repeated examples ..water, laughter...very effective way to start to sink in the story idea.
Effective use of strings without overwhelming..they can get in the way if overdone.
Inter-verse space without solos..it’s tempting to slap some type of instrumental ornament in there, but I like how you kept it pristine, better for this songs message.
Epitaph..++ for using this word!
I loved the Steady pace of the entire piece, supported by the piano arpeggio element.
Great track!

PG Music News
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!"

continued...

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."
