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.

Key=Eb , Tempo 130, Length (m:s)=4:09

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.

"sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun."

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 ".

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!"

continued...

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."
