I tried my hand at a ballad entitled, "Love Will Win."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9I6-BK9eho

For the piece, I used "Power Tracks Pro" 2018 exclusively. I arranged, performed and mixed the piece; my friend Maggie Rose sang the lyrics. Created in my home studio in Calgary, Alberta. Sounds are from Garritan and IK Multimedia Vsti plugins.

Verse 1:

Morning comes and sings a brand new song,
Music fills the air,
A hopeless past to overwhelm the soul,
Has no place to bare.

Verse 2:

Peace transcends and fills an empty heart,
Bringing forth faith and love.
Doubts break and daylight warms the soul,
A new time's begun.

Chorus:

I don't know why I see light in the sky,
When the journey's cold but He sacrificed.
Making a way to overcome this life
I will never be in doubt and hurt again,
Love will win.

Verse 3:

Day time sun sets and brings on the night,
Melody sings so gently, softly.
Light eternal leads the path so bright,
Hope for another day.

SOLO

Chorus:

I don't know why I see light in the sky,
When the journey's cold but He sacrificed.
Making a way to overcome this life
I will never be in doubt and hurt again,
Love will win.

I will never be in doubt and hurt again,
Love will win.

Very pretty ballad Lorne!! I'm not sure I've heard anything by you before, so WELCOME!! This is a really nice spiritual song. The vocal processing works really well with the message, and your friend did a lovely job! This is really strong from a writing and production standpoint! Nice job!! Take care. Greg

I like how you bought all the instruments in on the second verse.
Very delicate tune. Very well done. Welcome to the forum.

Thank you Greg and Rob for your kind assessment. Actually, I was here a year ago and posted a song called "May I?". It's found here:

Wow - this is stunning! I loved the slow progression in this, and your vocals are gentle and pristine. When it finally reaches it's peak near the end it really is something to behold. I wouldn't bat an eyelash if I heard this on the radio.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

Lorne...
A lovely composition...
Good melody & lyrics...
Ms Rose delivered a wonderful vocal...
I really like the ending fade...
Amazing testament to the use of Power Tracks for the production & mixing of songs...
I certainly enjoyed listening to your creativity.

Hey there Lorne, I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. I found this very easy to listen. Those strings are very relaxing to listen to. Great use of reverb on the vocals. Well done!

Wow - wonderful job. The production is close to flawless (to my ears, at least), the writing is infused with a variety of influences yet sounds unique to you, the singing is crystalline. A very different track to what I've heard lately - I loved it.

Leeky,

Pretty tune . . . very sweet vocal, too. Magnetic melody and hook in the chorus. This has a little bit of a Broadway show feel to it . . . which I really like. And overall the production is just really solid—great mix. Enjoyed this one a lot.

All the best,

Deej

What a great set of melody and words. This has the soaring feel of a song that might pop up in a film or theater, but also fits as an anthem contemporary christian. For the record, I agree with the title.

I forgot to give credit, where it is due. I used "Sound Forge Studio 12.6" to normalize the wave file and create the fade at the end. My apologies.

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."
