Loved the longing in your vocal, some great lines in the song (he's social distancing from six feet below), piano a little busy but not too bad, good sendup overall.

Thanks Scott C.

This was just a quick throw together for a block party, but folks seem to enjoy it. I guess we are all living the same challenges and we are all ready for a laugh!

Thanks Tune Monger!

This was just a quick throw together for a block party, so I just took what BIAB gave me on that piano. But it kinda sounds like a few piano players I have worked with over the years. In fact, it sounds BETTER than a few piano players I have worked with!

"Don't make me ask. Just put on your mask." A wonderfully lazy blues, with a finely crafted vocal.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Very, very well done!!! Vocal is killer, and everything sounds pro!! Curious about your vocal chain and what reverb that is.....has a great older style feel! Take care. Greg

This is all sorts of cool.
MOST impressive is the way you've blended you vocal with the pre reverbed BIAB tracks.


Cheers

Forgive me! I try to answer every comment individually, but life happened.

The love is much appreciated, and man! do I ever it need it right now.

Regarding the reverb (there are questions): I export separate 'dry' tracks from BIAB. Then I use one reverb bus in Logic Pro X for everything. Abbey Road(-ish) EQ on reverb bus. For bad or for worse that is how I do things. NO REVERB on bass.

My audience is typically band mates who usually ask questions like, "Hey, you got anymore of that queso?" and couldn't care less about production settings. Gotta luv 'em.

If I can keep family out of hospital I'll get back to writing hit songs. Or just plain old how-I-see-it songs. Maybe some hanging-at-the-hospital-with-family songs. Writing is cathartic for me, and someday I'm going to look up that word and see what it means. But not today, I have to go to the hospital. With my mask on. Don't make me ask.

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."
