Very nicely done...
You & Kerry & Chad have created a catchy tune...
Hopefully others are not scared away from your method of submission...
Most users here use Windows instead of Linux...
And I imagine they might be more than cautious than to download a submission from Dropbox...
That presented a message like I received...
".mp3 files are supported but something went wrong."...
None of my Mp3 players would play you tune but I finally got it to play in Audacity...
And Audacity indicated it had a lot of clips...
Perhaps you should normalize it to a -1...

Thanks Jim.

Can you not play it in your browser on Dropbox? I don't hear or see any clipping at all on anything I've played it on.

Rick,

It plays fine for me (in Firefox).

Sounds good. Everything is crisp and clear. Very good mix.

Cool horns. Strong bass. Good vocal.

Great tune, vocal and production. I had no problem hearing it with dropbox, but I did turn the volume down a bit. I particularly was interested in the horns since I have that package. It was pretty good. Of course, nothing replaces the real thing, but you did a fine job with it.

Sounds great through my speakers. smile

Like TuneMonger, I was curious how the NI Horns would sound (spoiler: the sound good).

Nice lyrics, clean mix. Fun song. All the instruments sound great, but the accordion player deserves a bonus on this.

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

re: accordion player, I totally agree. It was good enough to get a solo instead of my fiddle! grin

Sounded good here too, and it opened and played in safari on my iPad.

Nice tracks!

The bright and dynamic introduction got this off to an immediate great start.

Well handled vocals, and the instrumental fills slotted in perfectly. The guitar break is extremely well done, and overall there's so much to like about this production.

Nice work - loved the accordion in this, and as others have mentioned the mix is top notch. It all flows effortlessly, and it sounds so crisp and professional.

You should be proud of this one. Thanks for sharing!

I apologize Rick...
I hope I did not offend you...
And I'm happy others are listening to your wonderful production...
However...
When I experienced the following I was concerned...

1st - Your song was 2 days old & without a comment (Usually that doesn't happen)...
2nd - I've never had a problem streaming a Dropbox song...


3rd - Then I saw the error message (Very Unusual)...
4th - When it opened in Audacity I saw the following (Unusual sight but no clipping heard)...


Anyway "Leaving San Antonio" is a great song...
And I'll be looking forward to more of your submissions!

Jim,

No offense taken! I was just curious because I've been opening the wav file in Dropbox for months with no issues.

Your waveform does indeed look like it's clipping, so I opened my download in Audacity and the wave is all blue. So, who knows?

Thanks!
Rick

It's a cool Tex Mex feel - I reckon it'd be very Ry Cooder, (Chicken Skin Music era ), if it was slower.
The vocals & horns are pretty hot playing it as a streamer.
To check things I downloaded the file & opened it in Reaper - it clips very, very frequently.
It runs particularly hot in the intro and even after frequently hits + while sitting at no level increase on the track and the master bus. It fares a little better when converted to .wav and opened in Wave-repair but it looks like it was compressed and then normalized or brick wall limited.

I am using Firefox and I don't hear any clipping.

This is an excellent song. Nice work with those NI horns. That guitar work was excellent. Your vocal was strong and the mix was spot on.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

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.
