John,

A nice song. A good arrangement. Your vocals are really nice.

That piano does not sound like it is one of the BIAB RealTack pianos, so I'm guessing you used an older BIAB style - which were all MIDI??
If that is the case, it is unlikely that many current users would have run across it, since most have been using RealTrack for a decade or more. So it is fairly easy to recognize the RealTarack Pianos (for those who use BIAB a lot), but the older styles would not be used enough to be familiar with them...just a guess, of course.

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum and what looks like your first venture onto the Showcase.

And a great track to kick off with. Nice choice of instruments and an excellent
mix with everything working together well. Super arrangement - I liked the drop
at around 2.00 and the build-up again.

Excellent vocals, too. Enjoyed the whole thing.

ROG.

John,

First off, welcome to the BIAB forum. It’s a great place to share music and showcase your tunes, and, of course, this wonderful software.

The song is really strong, as is your vocal. Compelling chorus; really like the drum work on this one as well. And the lead solo is very cool. Super tune—enjoyed it!

All my best,

Deej

thanks guys for your comments and advice...a real pianist is probably the answer eh?

It was worth an ask, someone may have said " Oh that's style such and such " and bang job done. i used biab and then converted to midifile and used my cubase plug in sounds, didnt have a les paul to play solo so used my takamine and drove it hard with cubase drive !! I have a les paul now!! Drums were stienberg virtual drummer version 1.

cheers

Lovely song. Great singing. I like that piano style, but I don't recognize it.

If you have the midi file you can use a current BIAB MIDI piano easily enough.
Good song. Sounds like a cool New Wave era Nick Lowe voice and some aspects of the song, the less countrified, sound that way too.

Great driving beat from the first note.

A lot like to like about this, innovation has been delivered with a great set of lyrics.

I'm afraid I don't instantly recognize the piano style that has been used. It's a little "Bruce Hornsby" style. Does that help at all?

Hello John,

Welcome to the forum. Hope you will enjoy it.
And what an entrance you made with this song. Wow!!!
Strong composition, nice melody and a very nice vocals!

You said it was an old song, but did you played/ sang it again now, for us?
Or is this also your 'old' voice?

And the piano? It sounded ok to me, but in BiaB or your Daw you find all the chords of the song (if you don't have them anymore). In BiaB you can put a RT-piano in.

I am very interested in your next -new- song,
Hans

A few things. First of all this is top notch production and arrangement. When I heard all that space in the first section, I knew I was listening to something on a different level. Vocals are super strong and clear. I could go on ... One thing I have to add is that the chorus didn't go where I thought it would - I would have taken it in a completely different direction, but that's just me. It's really solid, though, and it works.

Regarding the Piano style, I don't recognize it offhand, but I am steadily working my way through all of the styles in the UltraPak and I'm in the older MIDI ones now, so if I come across one that seems close I'll let you know. Just off the top of my head though, it sounds like it could be in the Country (sort of obvious) or even Gospel/Praise styles.

Hello John ...

Welcome to the Forum. This is a really terrific intro to your music! Top notch song with some really nice singing. I really enjoyed your vocal delivery ... really, really nice! The mix is very nicely done. None of the backing tracks step on another ... everything has it's own place/space. Personally, I would have brought the drums a little more forward in the mix ... not too much, just a bit. But it sounds real nice as is, though.

That was a super listen! Thanks for the listening pleasure!!! best t o you. Be safe ...

Alan

PS: I liked the ending!
