Inspired by a night of Salsa dancing with my love!

My Love on SoundCloud

Tracks were originally recorded in 2005 in PowerTracks Pro Audio.
Migrated the files to Cubase and added some BIAB realtracks flavor smile.

RealTracks in song: 1818:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm SonMontuno Ev 165
RealTracks in song: 1645:Guitar, Acoustic, Soloist SambaFusionCarlos Ev 190
RealDrums in style: SalsaGuaracha32^3-a:Bongo, b:Bells


I perform all vocals and all other instruments:

Acoustic drums
Cabasa and shaker
Piano, Electric piano, Bass, and Synth solo are played on Yamaha MO8 keyboard.
String section is Garritan Personal Orchestra.

Lyric:

Every night when I sleep
I see you, in my dreams
Lips so tender and sweet
Your voice a melody

In the morning I wake up
Yearning for your touch
I can’t wait to caress you,
My love

I watched you dance in the night
By the full moon, I could see
Your body move in the light
Ever closer to me

Like an angel in motion
Divine and marvelous
You glide into my vision,
My love


You’ve taken over my senses
My eyes see only you
You’ve broken through my defenses
My Love



peace!
-rob

What a sensational production.

The lyrics sit so perfectly with the rhythm of the music during the refrain, and everything comes so perfectly alive.

This has got a great Al Jarreau feel about it.

Lyrics are amazing, everything is amazing. I'm inspired, no question smile

Hi Robert,

I'm running out of superlatives...

What a gorgeous song and production. You're not only an extremely talented song-writer, but alsoo deliver stunningly perfect arrangements, fantastic vocals and and and...


Whatever you come up with: It's far above any - even any very good - amateur level. I'm more than just impressed...

All the best,

Stefan

Rob,

Everything about this is good.

The write, the arrangement, the production, the mix...the playing, the vocals.

Excellent music from every angle..

Wow - what a tune! It has so much texture, it's so lush, and has so much soul behind it. Love the salsa groove on it too - adds a lot of character, and really gives it a unique quality. And your vocals on this are absolutely top notch.

This tune leaves nothing to be desired - you should be proud of it! Thanks for sharing smile

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!"

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."
