"He who lives in the memory of his loved ones is not dead,
he is only distant. Dead is only who is forgotten."
- Immanuel Kant -

Listen to THE SHINING SKY

I’m still surrounded by the darkness
and it seems like yesterday
iI's like a never ending process
I am here and you are on the way

And there is still so much that I want to telling you
but I think you already knew it long ago

I am now looking up
to the shining sky
Want to get out of the dark
no longer wants to asking why

I am now looking up
to the shining sky
Nothing is the way it was
but now I want to stop cry

Whenever i drive by your window
I see you waving to me
Your smile is like a rainbow
and will remain so for all eternity

You brought a lot of love into my life
and I always want to touch your light

Hi Andi,

Very nice ballad, good choice of instruments and nice arrangement.

Good vocal. A little too much processing on it for my tastes, but I'm old school in that regards I guess smile

Hello Andi,

The song is beautiful, with nice strings to support it.
The composition is cleaver made. i like that.

About your vocals it looks as if you hold back in your singing as if you want to prefend it to clip.
You can hear that very much in where you start with: "Whenever i drive by your window..."
I think you need to sing more full and give your 'despair' more body.
If you do that this will become a very nice song!

And welcome in the forum, by the way,
Hans

Hello Hans
Thank you for your feedback.
I agree with you 100 percent.
A good singer can get much more out of this song (and also out of my others).
I was never a singer. But I also don't know anyone who wants to sing my songs.
And now that I have such a great band with BiaB I just try to sing it myself as good as I can.
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Andi,

A nice song. Good arrangement. Good mix.

I like the vocal processing. (I USED to be old-school like Dave, but I'm not any more smile )

Well done. Enjoyed the listen.

Hello Floyd
Well, if I could do without vocal effects
I probably wouldn't use them so much either ;-)
But with effects I really feel better
Thanks for your feedback

I really like this one Andi! That violin at the start and in various spots really was an excellent choice! It's a lovely song that you did a super job with in all aspects! Thanks, Torrey

Masterful composition, Andi. Great band you've chosen, too. Excellent vocal. There's something particularly interesting in the quality of your vocal. Very well done.


Enjoy whatever happens!

That sounded good.

I'm going to guess that English isn't your native tongue.

Aside from a few incidental grammatical errors.... No big deal really... You have a very cool timbre to your voice. I don't think you need to cover it up or hide behind vocal effects. If you want to double the vox for fullness you should have one of the tracks up front and the others down to barely audible and panned wide. Oh, and don't clone them. Record them each.

I liked the song. I'll check out some of the other stuff you posted.

That's really a pity that I don't have anyone to
check my texts
fortunately they are only small mistakes ;-)
Many greetings

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."
