Some have pointed out the 56k MP3 conversion didn't cut it.
It's a decent tune. Here's a WAV remix. Sorry, I realized after posting I had only thought I had cut the length down to :03:10

I was going to compare it to your original...
But I guess you removed it (404 Error)...
IMHO... You don't have to upload a wave file unless thats what you want...
Though a 56k MP3 is a pretty low ,,,
A 160k or 192k MP3 should yield sufficient sound quality at a lower file size.

Yeah, I did remove it, Jim. My bad, but really did sound terrible. That instaud.io has a limit. The version on there now is 256 bit MP3 and under the limit. It is a good site to pass tracks around among friends.

Ed,
yes! Sounds clear and full! Very nice and enjoyable blues tune indeed!

Thank you for sharing!

P.S. I would stay at a minimum of 256k MP3 to retain quality.

Misha.

Def better. To be honest, in this age of FLAC et al I won't listen to less that a 320 if I have a choice.

Nicely done - really calming to the ears. Nice and peaceful, and the format of this one is nicer as others pointed out. You should be proud of this one smile

Thanks for sharing!

Much better. I always upload as good a quality wav file as I can, and let Soundcloud do the conversion. Just make sure there is no digital clipping in the wav file. Soundcloud will compress it and adjust the volume to their standards, so it's better to have the overall volume not too hot. I am usually fairly happy with the results from Soundcloud.

This version sounds much better, and more clear. I enjoyed it!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

SC and others recommending loading a .wav for the best sound following the run through their compression algorithms. FWIW that's what we've uploaded for many years.

This is very nice and many apologies for missing it the first time around. Man, there are a LOT of songs being posted!

We love the blues so this was right in our wheelhouse!

#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!
