Thanks, Torrey. I've just begun to mine this resource. Isn't America's music tradition fascinating?

Nice song!
I think this is pretty darn good.

I have to suggest there needs to be some adjustments in the mix.
The instruments all sit well and are clear.
However, the vocal sounds a bit boxy.

I like the vintage vibe on the vocals but, it seems out of place with the track.

Thanks for that, Capt. Moto. I have a plan to improve the vocals. We'll see. I'm not too sure what Boxy is

I like the arrangement and your singing. laugh

But... there's a lot of places where there's distortion on your voice, which I assume isn't something you were aiming for. For example, at 0:26 and 2:14 on the "sorrow", 0:42 and 2:23 on "no", 2:31 on "home". I suspect you were just too close to the microphone at those points.

The vocal seems a bit far back in the mix - there's a lot of reverb on the instruments, so the voice doesn't seem to mesh with the rest of the mix.

But those are just nits. Nicely done, I enjoyed listening!

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

Hi Ed.
I just love country gospel and the "old timey" (compliment) quality of your vocals fitted this song perfectly . My only gripe is that i found the panned guitar a distraction from your fine vocals. I enjoyed this a lot.

Thanks, Gary. I'll listen for that. By panned, I think is meant raising the volume of the guitar track to feature it, or does it mean to just keep the
guitar out of the way during the vocal track? I notice the country music pros use the electric guitar sparingly when someone sings, you know, more as a fill, riff, or punctuation.

Super lyrics, and a wonderfully uplifting feel to this, Ed. I agree the vocal seems to hit the red a few times.


Enjoy whatever happens!

I'm taking notes, folks. Where else could a guy post a song and have experts of proven worth listen and comment in such as way as to suggest positive steps that will improve the quality of the product? I don't know of any other place/

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.
