Simply sublime.

A lovely gift to a partner in what is obviously a wonderful marriage.

The lyric, your vocal, the melody and the arrangement are glorious.

And the mix glues it all together so well with a room filling soundstage.

Outstanding!!!

PS And the video was a pleasant visit with the family.

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


Thanks so much, Deryk! So glad you like this one. I guess Rachel liked it. We're still together! smile

A little de-essing might be nice but otherwise WELL DONE.

Steve,

Very pretty . . . Wow, what a vocal on this—killer. And a beautiful write. Really pretty, really sweet tune. You are a lucky man to have such love in your life . . . and I bet she’s a lucky girl to have you in hers. Congrats on your 43rd anniversary. God bless!

My best to you both,

Deej

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window.
