Thanks Jim - just a quick write to fit the music no truth to the lyric.

Peter & Leon,
A good carefree pop feel to that refrain- I like the way you build with repeats on the chorus....the highlight for me is those twin leads.

Catchy song, guitar buried the vox but that can be fixed. Would like to hear a revision.

Nice song! It could be even better if you could mix the vocal so it gets more upfront. But even if the vocals are a bit in the "mud" it is easy to hear that you have made a great song!

Thanks for sharing!

Good guitar stuff throughout - the outro is especially nice.

I agree that the vocal needs a bit more clarity. The vocal frequency and guitar frequencies seem to be about the same place, causing a conflict...

An enjoyable tune. Glad to see y'all back in the swing of things.

Thanks floyd appreciate the comments and analysis.

Thanks Greg - the vocal is what you get when the guitarist does the mix!

Peter and Leon,

Catchy tune, and like the lyrics. Definitely think the vocal can come more forward just a tad—but that’s an easy adjustment, and then you’ll really have something. Very listenable and engaging. Good luck with this one!

All the best,

Deej

Bouncy and fun. I love the way the chorus builds at the end. I expected a fade at 2:50, but why cover up a perfectly good solo? smile


Listening on near field monitors and I agree.

The guitar parts are very good, nice playing! I also like the backing tracks. Just bring up the vocals.


Thanks Mario.

Thanks - certainly not one of Leon's most profound lyrics just a quickie to go with the backing.

Peter&Leon.

Very positive, light hearted song. Listens very well. Guitars are super!
Enjoyed it!

P.S. I read first two comments... about the vocals being buried a bit. I have very (very!) neutral headphones and it sounds good to me, but I probably agree that with slight bass coloring vocals can easily sink.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
