One Last Try


I wrote this several months ago. It was a submission for the opening soundtrack of a TV talent show. It didn't get selected. The graphic on the Soundcloud post is my of my older brother, Ronnie. He passed away last summer from recurring cancer. About six months before he died he said, "I'll give it one last try" - referring to another round of chemo. RIP, Ronnie. You were the best big brother I could have had.

Real nice track, and a great tribute to your brother. Alan, you have a tremendous skill for selecting/arranging/placing the RT components--it's something I really admire in your work. The results you get are coherent and additive to the end product. I can definitely see this as thematic music, but it's eminently listenable as a stand-alone piece. Enjoyed it a lot!

I love the clip at which this thing moves. Great energy. Sounds wonderful on both phones and monitors. Classy progression and very nice production. Very much enjoyed, though I might have a harder time getting to sleep.

Good stuff, Alan! You have a real knack for arranging these instrumentals.

Guitar is right in the pocket, track sounds great too.

Enjoyed!

Superb work Al. Really nothing to add to above or what we always say about your BiaB productions.

Anybody that harbors doubt about the value of BiaB needs to go to SC and listen to you for a while. Case closed.

Whether selected or not regarding the sync opp it is a wonderful tribute to your brother. May he rest in peace.

Great listen(s)!

Nice production. Too bad it didn't get picked. You threw your hat (song) into the ring at least. Hat's off to you for that. Condolences on your brother's passing.

Hi Tano

I sure do appreciate all that! Thank you very much! I just do what I can with the limited knowledge I have of this great software.

Wishing you the very best. Be safe ...

Hi Tangmo ...

Thank you very much! I'm more than delighted you enjoyed it. But, not apologies if it kept you from sleeping! That means, I think, I got the energy level close to where I was striving. Thanks for the nice words! Wishing you the best. Take care ...

Alan

Hi Dave ...

For whatever reason, these instrumentals just come to me. Sometimes I get lucky and they come out half-way decent. Thanks for the mixing comments ... as you know, my mixing process is almost Neanderthal! And thanks for the condolences. Ronnie was a fabulous singer who deserved a wider audience.

Best to you. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Hey Guys!

I don't blush easily but your humbling comments caused it to happen. I guess we old farts have to hang together! But, I'm only old by numerical definition. My heart and my body still perform as though i were twenty years younger. Many sincere thanks! I appreciate the condolences. Ronnie was great talent with a much too narrow audience.

Take care and be safe ...

Alan

jpt x 3 ...

Thank you so much. My grandfather always told me that no one will say "Yes!" if you don't ask (in this case, submit). I appreciate the kind words and the condolences.

Wishing you the very best. Please be safe ...

Alan

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...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
