Hey everybody I'm a music producer in Nashville and have recently started using band in a box and its really blown me away!

This is a doo-wop style song I recently made with my friend Fernando under our group Yer Lips Are Blue.

There is a style change in the bridge to make it more bluesy while keeping the same drums for consistency.

Thanks for listening
-Andrew

Interesting Andrew, not really doo-wop though occasionally the bvox stray into that territory.
Nice capture of the main voice.
There're a few spots where the sibilant sounds get in the way of it though.
Sounds like an interesting lyric.
well done.

It's "expected" that the style used, the tracks used, the DAW and any VSTs/special outboard gear, lyrics etc. are listed so listeners can learn for the process too.


Cheers

I love the song lyrics, and the seemingly simple production. Vocals are excellent, and very well recorded. The sweet delivery reminds me of a song I recently recorded... Great work Andrew.

A nice song. Good, simple production. (Is it all BIAB?)

Pleasant vocals.

Good mix. A good listen.

Welcome to the Showcase.

AH, welcome to the forum, Luck. I really enjoy your first song. It may not fit under the doo-wop flag as Ray suggested (because it doesn't have the 4-part BGVs), but it would definitely be played on the same channels. Wonderful vocal. Is that you or Fernando? Nice harmony, and a perfectly chosen band. So glad you found BiaB, and it's cool listening how it'll change your life. hehe. Keep 'em comin'.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Yeoman work here, I really liked it. Normally we like to get the lyrics but the vocal was so crystal clear I didn't really need it. Excellent effort all the way around, welcome to the Showcase!

THis has a 60's feel to the tune and the groove. Nice first offering on the forum.

It really helps if you can include a list of the BB/RB tracks you use as well as a copy of the lyrics so we can read along. Doing that really helps us get a feel for the bigger picture.

Very nice work.

Thanks for all your feedback and kind words! This was basically recorded into LUNA (daw) through an apollo interface with processing through soundtoys plugins. The mic was a u87ai. This was part of a "song a day" that Fernando and me were trying to do with band in a box after I recently got it. I'm the singer and he wrote most of the lyrics.

The BIAB was the _RETRO 12-8 vintage guitar it looks like with some extra real tracks that are bluesy in the bridge for anyone wondering.

I don't really have any links to production work I just worked as a session player mostly for "bomb shelter" studios in Nashville and gigged around a lot. COVID has severely impacted that so I do mostly graphic design for artists these past 1.5 years but it's been interesting doing more harmonica and drum work from home.

Here's the lyrics/chords and some more info:

lyrics:



Never been a lucky man

I’ve always had a lousy hand

Yet I took a chance on you

And all my chips went down the tube

Even so I still love you

If I could place my bet again

I’d gamble all for just a kiss

My Love

I’d lose it all to gain your love





I confess you played me well

Because I fell under your spell

Stubborn I thought I could win

By compromising with this sin

And I still think that I can win

My conscience 's wrong and you are right

I’d be a fool for just a touch

My Love

I’d break the Rule to steal your love



Well my darling

Now I’ve got nothing

Except my ole pride and soul

Yes my darling

I would pawn them

To taste a little crumb of your love



Bet you knew how it would end

Your heart cost more than I could spend

Never really had a chance

Except for one song and one dance

And still I’d take another chance

To turn my luck into your arms

I’d pawn it all for just a waltz

My Love

I’d spend it all to buy your love

AGain thanks for all the feedback!

Hi, Andrew.

Welcome to the forum!

6/8 time doesn't show up around here.

Sad, slow do wop is a good combination. Nice throwback! smile

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

Andrew,

Super good first posting! Loved the overall sound! Vocals are delivered very well! A great mix also!

Like Floyd, I am curious as to what is BIAB in this production.

Welcome aboard the showcase and don't be a stranger...keep them coming!

Thanks, Torrey

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.
