Hey Mr.BobaLew, thank you for sharing this! The arrangement is a pleasure to listen to and the mix sounds well polished too. Great work! - What kind of compressor did you use?

Thanks for the good words.

The compressor is a Logic Pro 9 stock plug-in. It is set to Platinum, just like my frequent flyer card (heh, heh) and I just don't compress very much. Vocals 4:1 usually, bass 2.5:1, everything else 1.5:1.

For me it is the least understood tool in the box. As a live chamber music guy from way back my ear perceives effects as 'contaminants' and I struggle to accept the benefits. I really do get it - the recording is an artificial creation in need of assistance, but the bias is still there.

This is probably not responsive to your question about compressors, but the less I know about a topic the more I have to say about it!

Thanks again for the good words!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
