a little experiment ,this was only taken to my DAW ,to add the vocals.i mixed everything in house. I think this shows the quality and diversity if BIAB.

https://soundcloud.com/brad-stevens-uk/ill-never-give-up


u gave up lying
u gave up drinking
u gave smoking
and using too

u gave up evrything
that you every wanted
but honey i never gave up on you

u gave up fighting
u gave up dyning
u gave up praying
on that ole wooden pew
u gave up evrything
that you every wanted
but honey i never gave up on you



chorus

i never gave up on you and me
the good the bad
the dont agrees
the times we shared
when we were so in love

i never gave up on what we had
cos even when you made you mad
you could see in my eyes
that i was still in love

im gonna be right here
in everything you do
and honey
ill never give up on you


you gave up dreaming
u gave up hoping
u gave up laughing
and smiling too
u gave up evrything
that you every wanted
but honey i never gave up on you


chorus

i never gave up on you and me
the good the bad
the dont agrees
the times we shared
when we were so in love

i never gave up on what we had
cos even when you made you mad
you could see in my eyes
that i was still in love

im gonna be right here
in everything you do
and honey
ill never give up on you

hope you enjoy

We enjoyed the classic sound of this production with the vocal performance and the write.

The mandolin added a nice touch.

Melancholy yet with uplifting overtones.

Thanks for sharing.

I'll call that experiment an unqualified success. laugh

Good classic country write. Nice job singing - nice and emotive.

I love the hold at the end of the verse, and the mandolin solo.

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

The vocal sits above the backing which is fine as it suits the style and the vocals/lyrics/melody are strong enough to carry the attention.
There seems to be a different reverb between the backing & vox but it's REALLY hard to match BIAB reverbs.
There's some mouth noises, other than singing, that could be muted - just the odd dry smack etc.
Nice song.

Really well done! A really solid classic-sounding country tune. Checks all the boxes for me - strong vocals, classic country subject matter, nicely catchy and a good mix.

Not too shabby for an experiment - great work! Thanks for sharing smile

Hey Brad,


This song is really good. Liked it a lot. Super lyrics.

I want to apologize for being so absent from the forum. Also, I will be candid that this part of the post is kind of a generic “form letter” to my old and new forum friends.

In brief, work is very hectic right now and I am having a hard time keeping up with the forum and even writing new songs. There is also a lot of new material hitting the boards—more than I can listen to and reply. People are on a roll!

Instead of backing away from the forum I want to stay involved by just giving the equivalent of a “like” as opposed to full-fledged commentary.

This way, I can just keep listening, and enjoying and reply with a simple LOVE IT or something like that.

I do listen, love your stuff and really want to continue following those who are so dedicated to encouraging others, even if it is only with one word.

Hope this makes sense, thanks for your artistry and forgive my brevity going forward with massive time constraints.

Also forgive me if you see this message more than once until I know I have covered all my bases.

Peace!!

smile

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
