Waiting for the sun

Deep down below,
I believe we could grow.
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

We push through,
do what we can do
to overcome...

...what has to be done,
sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun.
Oh, to overcome,
what has to be done,
sometimes you better run...

High above the sky,
I believe we could rise,
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

oooh! This is really nice. Great vocal. nice and bright and up front.

Nice placement of the harmony just to the left side.
Makes for great clarity and definition.


I really like that way this part sounds.

Nice work. I like the folk groove. Harmony is superbly done.

What's not to like?

Hey, this is a nice production. Sounds really good on the monitors. Good RT choice and the drums sound good...nice snare pop.

Cool contemplative lyric delivered with some up front (in a good way) and soulful vocals.

We like!!!

You're making music at a very high level, and it's a pleasure to listen to. I wish I could sing and make music this good. The lyrics are okay, but still the Achilles heel for me. Maybe it's not a big deal, I tend to weight lyrics higher than most people do.

Classic folk mood, but with full rich modern sound and great vocals. Very enjoyable backing vocals also. I like how the fiddle and the vocals resonate together.

That's a very nice song, Rebecca!
The vocals are very pleasant as is the melody of the song.
And I do like that violin in it. It is subtle, but present!

This sounds professional on all levels - excellent work.

The singing and arrangement are top-notch.

But - and I say this with some hesitation - for me there's something about the mix that makes the vocals a strident and hard to listen to. I'm glad others disagree with me. smile

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

Hey Janice and Bud,

Yes, you are right, we took your advice in putting the vocals more up front you suggested for the song " let go ".

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
