"It's The Simple Things" (2009). https://soundcloud.com/lawrence-olivier/its-the-simple-things


I did this song with BIAB years ago and was never quite satisfied. Thanks to BIAB and their commitment to an ever expanding catalogue of recording styles, I was able to use all new instruments and I am much happier with the results. I love the nylon guitars!

Lawrence,

So great to hear you again... Love this song and the vocal is outstanding.

The mix is excellent and bass is a real standout - just beautiful.

Nice! The nylon strings sure sound sweet.

Excellent singing as well. Glad you're happy with the new version - I certainly enjoyed it.

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

Sounds good to me, Lawrence!

The "band" works well for the piece, and your vocal is perfect.

Enjoyed!

Wonderful remake!

Your choice of RT's is interesting and, man, do they ever carry the song well.

The lyric is well worth reflecting upon and is delivered with a classy, passionate vocal.

It's ALWAYS nice to log on and see a gruve tune posted and this certainly did not disappoint.

Excellent work! Come back more often.

BIAB went the whole hog in REAL - the clicks and taps i the classical guitar track &/or bass track really place one in the room.
The arrangement, lyric and vocal performance make this an excellent result.
Personally I'd reduce, rather than eliminate, the "noises" as they distract me when wearing headphones. A personal nit -.
Loved it.


Cheers

Bob, thank you. I've recently watched a video about how high passing the low end effects harmonics across the rest of the spectrum. It was very eye opening. And as a result lately I stopped using high pass filter.

Stunning. What a band! Powerful lyric and sweet emotional delivery. Wonderful from first bar to last, but that ending is especially powerful.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
