Hey Guys:
I've always loved songs that progress musically with more instruments added as you go, and more voices and key changes, etc. etc...This is one of those types of songs...it's about hope so it makes sense that as hope progresses it grows and expands...well if you like that kinda stuff you might like this one...if not...at least there's a pretty video that accompanies it...so, if you do...thanks for listening (and watching)...Dan

Hope...never let me down

Hi Firesong,

A wonderful classic song, dramatic and with full-fledged vocals (if that's how you call this?).
Very nice melody, with good lyrics, although not really my content.
I then have to think about those poor people in Ukrain; Will hope save them? In a way it can, but not in a god, I think...

Still I was impressed by your performace here. Very well done!
Hans

Beautiful, Dan. I love the build, and the video was perfect. The way the song develops is like a long highway that ever rises to the heavens in a very hopeful way. As always your excellent vocal is divine.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dan,

A good write. Has a late-70's Radio Ballad vibe. A Dianne Warren kind of melody...

Excellent vocals. Really nice production and mix.

Nice piano! (we seem to have very few piano players in the Showcase)

Well done.

Dan, this is absolutely fantastic

Great vocal and a very important message in those lyrics

Outstanding instrumentation and dynamics

You are an excellent pianist and vocalist

Loved it


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Ooooh. Pretty, especially the chorus. Your vocal is gorgeous, as usual.

Love the arrangement - key changes are cool, getting bigger each time.

Very nice! laugh

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

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."
