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!!!

J&B

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

New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.
