I know I'm posting too many songs these days...but...I've got nothing else to do and this is my only contact with the outside world smile...one thing I love about BiaB is it can be used to totally build a song with or it can be used along with other music making tools...I use it with my Yamaha keyboard's styles many times...this song is an example...I've always loved this song and pretty much like the Tyros3 accompaniment but it lacked something so I added a nice electric lead guitar to my mix and think it really improved it...you can be the judges.

My favorite singer in the world was gracious enough to do the vocals for me...my sweet daughter...bless her heart! If you do...thanks for listening...I appreciate your comments always...Dan

Hi Dan ...z

This is really a gorgeous song - so very pretty, indeed! I can see why you think so highly of Amber's voice. She is so captivating with sweet, butter-smooth quality. A very nice band! This is just so pretty and easy on the ears. Loved it!

FWIW, I would bring Amber's vocal slightly more forward in the mix - not a lot, just a touch.

My ears are still smiling!

Alan

Thanks Alan so glad you liked the song...I brought Amber forward in the mix as per your thought (thanks)...I also re-EQed the piano and gave the electric guitar more depth with some reverb...I think it was a good tweak...I really appreciate your thoughts...Dan

Dan,

A beautiful song. Good write. A lovely melody.

A really solid production. All the nice "little touches" that make a song so easy to listen to...
Really tasty piano.

A gorgeous vocal. A superb mix. Top-notch in all regards.

That acoustic guitar was from a keyboard style???

Loved this song. Intro was excellent. Such a beautiful vocal. Production was awesome. As Floyd said so easy to listen to. Warm, clear and so much depth to the instrumentation. Well done

Hey Floyd...thanks for your comments...yes the acoustic on the right side of the mix is a keyboard (Yamaha Tyros)...they are very realistic ...I added the acoustic (panned left) from BiaB..thanks again for your thoughts...Dan

Beautiful song Dan. Glad you posted lyrics. Amber has a very pretty voice. Sorry this is your only contact with the outside world but it's nice you have so much time to spend on your music with BIAB.

Hi Dan and Amber,

You made a very nice song in all aspects; composing, playing, singing, mixing!
I can understand why you are so fond of BiaB, you make very good use of it!
And I also understand you are so fond of Amber too. She has a lovely voice. The doubles of her vocals made the chorusses shine bright!

Always so good to listen to everything you post, Dan. Yes, Amber Eaker is sooooo good. Great tone and control. The whole song kind of takes one away on a cloud of positive hope. Beautifully done.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Very pretty opening—even prettier vocal . . . your daughter has a wonderful voice. It’s a stellar write and well produced arrangement. No suggestions here—just enjoyed the listen. (BTW, also digging those subtle background vox—nice touch).

All my best to you,

Deej

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
