I liked the use of the 12/8 time signature. It gave this a really good retro 60's feel.

Overall a very good production. Maybe a little long, but I noticed the fade starts at about 4:40, ends at 4:55 and then there is silence until 5:40?

Nice ballad! Has an early 60's vibe which is totally cool in my book.

Good writing and I like your vocal too. Also enjoyed your solo work during the outro.

Good song, enjoyed the listen!

The treatment of the bvox is perfect for the era/style.
The main vocal may be a little aggressive and a smidgen too loud.
The rim shot is a bit loud.
Have you considered mixing it in mono?
I reckon it'd sound perfect with everything up the middle and some reverb over the top to get a bit of a Spector vibe.
Cool song!

Nicely done smile I'm definitely getting a 60's vibe from this one which is never a bad thing in my books. Really strong vocals, and everything flows perfectly. Nicely catchy, and a really concise and professional mix as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Great retro piece. Some real soul in your vocal delivering those lines. The band sounds great. I kinda agree with Ray...this might be a good one to deliver in mono just to give it that feel in spades. Nicely done and much enjoyed.

beatmaster,

A very nice song. Good retro sound. I liked that you "kept it simple" - fitting for the era.

Nice vocals. I thought the chorus could have used some typical era background vocals - oohs and aahs, the do-[*****] thing...

Enjoyed.

Really enjoyable ballad with the 60's feel. You have made good work to make it sound so authentic. Great silky vocals. Good to know about this style, already inspires me to use it for a certain type of a song smile

Really enjoyed this, I haven't heard any attempts at this style of music on the User Showcase, it's very refreshing! It's so good it deserves some real doo-wap background vox. But still very good as is. Lead vocal was smoooth!

Beatmaster,
sweet! Ritchie Valens comes to mind. Nice era revival tune. Liked 99% about it. The last 1% is related to "chorused" drum sticks. Rims? not sure, but they have sort of doubled effect. Maybe somebody who knows about drums more can explain this the right way smile
Enjoyed this a lot!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Beastmaster,

I’m liking this . . . very 50’s, early 60’s throwback . . . totally digging the back up vocals on this; they kill. Really nice job on the vocals overall. Some nice spacing and patience with tempo that really give this song a great, warm feel. Stellar!

All the best to (ah-ahh) you,

Deej

Nice harmony on the chorus. Good balance - I liked the panning of the instruments. A bit abrupt fade at the end.

An enjoyable listen!

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

Hi beatmaster,

This is very reminiscent of The Platters and a number of other late-50s-early-60s groups. You've captured the period really, really well. The vocal harmonies nailed it! On top of this, your singing is as competent and as professional sounding as always and it is an excellent fit for the genre.

I really like what you've done here.

All the best,
Noel

Rayc The main vocal may be a little aggressive and a smidgen too loud.
The rim shot is a bit loud.


I did listen on numerous devices when I mixed this song, the sound was sounding a nice balance on my Arcam system with or without headphones.

Listening direct through my line 6 interface it sounded the same as the arcam, car, Bose speaker, all good then I listened through my phone and a small Bluetooth speaker and that's when I thought the same as yourself, although I did settle on leaving well alone.

Just for my interest what do you listen through.

Again thanks for your comments as I do appreciate it.

P.S. Loved the idea of yours Mono ?.

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!"

continued...

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."
