Time


Time by Jubilee Reed
A Valentine’s Day gift to her (at the time) boy friend (and now) husband.
Double tracked the vocals. Two separate takes panned left and right.
All harmonies by Jubilee.
All guitar tracks by Jubilee
Her Husband Mark plays bass on this song (not as many notes as the original BIAB player but not too shabby at all!)
On the little guitar riff sections Jubile is also singing melody and harmony “oo’s”!

Time
Jubilee Reed

Don’t think about the things you could have done
Let the sun shine on our backs, take some time to relax
How many hours have we been sitting here?
People with their dogs pass by, thinking we’re just wasting time

But time is never wasted
My time is never wasted with you

How can I start to say how much it means to me
That you are willing to tell me what you’re feeling?
Your heart is beautiful, I hope you know
It’s drawing me close to you like it’s supposed to do

My time is never wasted
My time is never wasted with you

I hope you know
You made me realize how much I love you
Oh, I’ll let you know
You made me realize that I love you
Oh, I hope you know
You made me realize how much I love you
Oh, I’ll let you know
You made me realize that I love you

My time is never wasted
My time is never wasted, no
My time is never wasted
My time is never wasted with you

Nicely done smile I really enjoyed the vocals on this, and it has a delightful modern sound. It almost reminds of certain songs by Neko Case. It flows really well, and I found the mix profession and concise.

Thanks for sharing!

Loved how the vocals were double tracked. She did a good job keeping them fairly alike and they give a nice stereo effect panning them hard left/right.

No noise or pops that I can find on this one, LOL. Keep up the good work!

I like this one the best among the ones you've posted with Jubilee. This one really connects with me melodically. Radio quality iMHO.

Hi Marty,

this is very nice in every respect: Great composition, good backing-track (only remark: I think there are RealDrums that would fit the song more smoothly), and the vocals are amazing.

Really cool stuff, like it a lot.

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Steve: yes we were getting much better at recording by the time we got to this song.
We Started about a year ago with a goal of releasing a 4 song EP in Nov this year. Lots of learning as we went along.

Hey Stefan...Interesting comment about the drums. Jubilee often said she thought the drums had too many "random" fills. She was after me to remove some of them.
But I thought they were ok and never did anything about it.

But now you have my curiosity bug on high alert to review the drums....

I guess this mixing business is never done and one can always think of something to do better.

Thanks so much to all.

Outstanding, every single part.

Jubilee is masterful, and shines with her beautiful vocal skills.

The mix doesn't get in the way of anything.

Everything about this is quality, quality, quality.

Great song! Love it. My fav of the ones I've heard so far. I'm listening on headphones and I had to get used to the left/right panning - more used to a center vox with left/right doubles on sides instead of just harmony coming in on center. So I had trouble making out all the lyrics. The second time I listened (not surprised and focused on the panning) I read the lyrics as the song was playing and I liked the "different" sound. Still, I'm wondering if you couldn't get that same ethereal feeling with a more standard doubles panning approach but production is such a personal choice. If whatever genre she's going for uses this technique then I'd keep it, if not I might rethink it. One thing for sure, I'm a fan of her voice and songwriting.

Mr. Marty,

Has a very R.E.M. type sound to this song; nice harmonies, and strong vocal. Part of me was looking for maybe a bit of a change up in the latter choruses or maybe bridge . . but as it is it works very well. Terrific listen!

Best regards,

Deej

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."
