I'm so glad to be back on here posting with you! It's been too long. This is a song I wrote back in 2008 to help make myself feel better when I was going through lots of heavy stress. It's called MERCY (God Is Good).
I shortened it from it's original epic length, added a few tweaks to the original tracks, of course added some new tracks plus added a special guest - my husband. I Hope it lifts your spirit during this stressful time.
As always thank you for your time listening and any constructive thoughts.
The lead Vox track is the original one from 2008 recorded in RB. Instruments are all Realtracks/RDs and a BIAB midi track. I don't remember and cannot find the original style. Mixed in Reaper.
Loc: Washington State
After listening to Mercy (God is Good), I realized with a sense of pleasant surprise that I had forgotten what a fine singer you are . Your vocal intro was sung in as gentle a manner as a mother would sing to her new-born infant, but at the same time, it also sounded like a quiet, two-note wake-up call to the masses to come to you, to listen to you, and heed your reassuring message. And then, those drums! POW! They really put the song 'on wheels' and sent it on its jam-tastic, upbeat way.
But, most of all, I'm very impressed with the song's arrangement! Lots of instruments: sax, strings, a choir, your voice and its harmonization, changes in the drums' rhythms, bass, piano, acoustic guitar, all really smoothly blended in an imgainative way, musically and mix-wise.
Your husband has a commanding, yet warm voice that was perfect for the monologue he provided -- wouldn't be surprised if he was a minister !!!

Hey! It's great that you posted this. Really nice song. Loving the vocals. Especially the held out ones.
When you said a special guest, you husband, I was expecting singing. I caught me off guard; but worked really well!
Now, keep 'em comin'! Good stuff!
C.Aaron Madison I often get asked how to pronounce my name. "Ma-Duh-Sn" J/K As people have left the "." out so many times, "Caaron" has become the norm of it. Still said as the "." was there though.

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!
"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."
