Thought I'd take a crack at a Pseudo Pop Song created in Band in a Box 2021. Utility Tracks helped out a lot in putting this one together. A total of 14 tracks were used just for the music. Hi string is MIDI synth not BIAB. Played through an M-Audio keyboard controller using a String sound module in Cakewalk Sonar. To take some of the work out of the background vocals in the hook I used Antares Vocal Harmonizer. Great product but you have to get it right to use it properly. My usual method is to sing into my TASCAM but since I had a FOCUSRITE interface I decided to use it singing directly into my PC. I think it worked great and I may continue to use it in the future instead of my TASCAM.

An impressive clean mix, and the vocals are outstanding.

Really enjoyed the balance, and the Focusrite certainly delivered.

Oh yes, there is really a massive number of things to like about this production. First class, from start to finish.

Best I've heard from you if memory serves. I often listen to a user track multiple times for critical purposes, but with this, I listened over and over just for the sheer enjoyment. Top level work!

Great song. Top quality write, arrangement, production and performance. You did a masterful job on those background vocals.

Hello Henry ...

It's my honest opinion that the forum is always a better place when you're here. I think you already know I enjoy your music. Sixties and seventies funk, soul and pop-RnB is one of our very favorite musical pleasures. And you do it so dang good!

Super write, mix and vocals. What more could a listener want? Enjoyed it immensely. Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Take care,

This is a classically authentic 'stepper' that I could dance to with my eyes closed, or without a partner, even. That's because of its smooth tempo and attractive, lightly Latin-sounding rhythm. Your sincerely affecting lyrics clearly communicate an eager lover's utter and heart-breaking bewilderment over the loss of a loved one's affection. Been there, felt that!

Your inspired and well-mixed Real Track choices are accompanied by some expressive vocal harmonies that sustain the song's hurting mood from its instant intro to its emotionally unresolved fade-out.

The whole thing just sounds so well-conceived, constructed and performed with your vocal track standing out especially for being sung so well.

The more I listen to this, the more I truly believe it is worthy of Air Play. You should definitely consider that.

Absolutely! This is pro all the way, great backing track, groove, mix, and one outstanding vocal.

Excellent!
