Hi all.
This is my latest effort.
All comments welcome.
Rob4580

Another Lonely Night


100 Bpm Key C#m

A storm has started brewing and lightning illuminates the mountains.
The rivers start to rise there fed by many fountains.
It's another tortured night and another lonely day without you.

Bridge


I cry into my hands, oh please take this burden from me.
For my strength has fled away, I'm not the man I used to be.
It's another tortured night and another lonely day without you.

Bridge


It's another tortured night and another lonely day without you.
It's another tortured night and another lonely day without you.
It's another tortured night and another lonely day without you.

Really nice, kind of an edgier Eagles to my ears. Liked the two passes you gave the electric guitar solo, and the ending was very good (how'd you pull that off?). Great work.

Hello Rob ...

Edgy! Super nice mix. That lead guitar cuts through the fog and shines - both times. I like the occasional acoustic guitar on the left channel - a nice contrast the melds perfectly.

Perhaps ramping up the bass a bit would give it even more drive. Just a thought. Great song -0 great delivery. Take care ...

This is a great song Rob, with such a strong and confident performance.
Love the hidden rhyme with "brewing" and "illuminates" in the first line; "A storm has started brewing and lightning illuminates the mountains."
Cheers,
Mike

Hi Rob,

that's a nice one for sure. A very good backing track with those guitar solos exactly where they belong. Very well-sung, too. Enjoyed the listen!

Take care,

Stefan

I thought I'd better join in with my fellow White Shoe Brigaders!
Rob,
Closer to your former style BUT still with a more aggressive, modern and VERY COOL edge to it.
You, and the likes of Misha, inspired me to climb out of my box for Just Let me Know.
My one crit is that the fade out was too fast - I'd have liked a) to hear more and b) to hear those tones a little louder.


Cheers

Hello TuneMonger.
Thank you for your comment.
For the ending, I just paused all instruments for a few bars.
Example (Cm...)

You might want to fix the typo in the title on SoundCloud.

Moody and minor - cool sound! The effects on your vocal work nicely here.

The song sticks in me mind after listening, which is always good. smile

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

Hi, Rob. The word "edgy" is used a lot here to describe the feeling this song brings, and I agree. I immediately sat on the edge of my seat right after pushing Play, and didn't push back until the ending. Very cool ending vocal. Well, the whole vocal track is good, but I especially like your choice ending. Oh, and I can't leave without seconding Alan's suggestion of bringing the bass up.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Listened a couple of times, Bob. Good vocal, atmospheric lyrics (literally in places) and great feel. Guitar solos suit the song really well. Another good one.

Leon

Nice one Rob.

It's a good mashup of your older and newer productions.

Nicely mixed and performed ... no surprise there!

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."
