Mixed Signals on Soundcloud
Mixed Signals on YouTube

You know how you start writing a song by strumming some chords until a melody sneaks in, which is soon populated by words? “Something in your whisper” came through and I liked it. But what to add to it? Just keep talking about those things in her whisper, or not? Then the end of the first line came, so the question was answered.

I added bass and vocals, and Dave Bell of Blue Attitude added his exceptional guitar work for the perfect fills and solo.

Mixed Signals

Something in your whisper feels so different than other things you say.
When you raise the volume I can't hear you anyway.
No, there's gotta be a merger, somewhere in between
where the truth in what you're saying is what you really mean.

CH: Mixed signals --that's what you're sending out to me.
Mixed signals --how perplexing/confusing they/that can be.

When you say things softly, it brings me closer to hear it all once more.
You stir some kind of feelings I have never had before.
Then you come right back and say things that I don't want true
I'm receiving your mixed signals, so what am I to do. CH SOLO

END REF: Your mixed signals are driving me crazy.
Your mixed signals are driving me crazy.
I'm receiving your mixed signals, so what am I to do?

Comments for and against are welcomed.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Marty and Dave
Very good song
Vocals fit great
Guitar is excellent
At about 3:04 I would have changed the drums
to increase the song.
But all in all a cool song
Good work Marty
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Marty ...

You never disappoint, my friend. A great song and so well delivered. Super lyric and a terrific vocal. Ans did Dave turn up the "sweet control" on his guitar, or what??!! Such a fabulous sound.

The video works perfectly for the message in the lyric. This is the whole package in full dress - wonderful!

Good stuff Marty. Lyrics came out well, though a little difficult to hear at times. Some good guitar throughout and good overall sound and feeling.

Marty,

Loved it!

A good write. A strong vocal!

Your Bass sounds great (of course).

Dave does some of his best session-guitarist work ever - beautifully supportive, cool licks. And a beautiful solo.

Excellent mix.

Catchy. One of your best.

Loved it! (bookended)

Wow guys, what a power sound!

Very good vocals and backing vocals. The arrangement really "floats" (love that organ).

Dave... what can I say. Could this solo possibly be any better?
No, it's just perfect!

Very cool intro. Another super vocal and lyric Marty. The B3 was very cool. Loved how Dave danced around the vocal with some very tasteful licks. Excellent guitar solo. Well done..

Hi Marty,

Well I can tell you, no mixed signals from me (this time). It's a very good song you made, with a strong harmony towards the end and a fabulous solo from Dave. The lyrics are very nice and you sing it with all your heart. Who can compete with that?
These mixed signals clearly didn't confuse you!

Those are some powerfully good vocals, Marty, to go along with your always great bass, BiaB tracks and Dave’s smoky guitar goodness.

You certainly came up with a good lyric and melody in a hurry.
What’s your secret, please? smile

Really well done and the vid emphasizes the "difference" indeed.

Very good quality work. Nice vox and harmony. Guitars are smooth.

What's not to like?

Hi, Marty.

My first thought was "That's can't be a Band in a Box lead guitar!"[/i]. David did a great job on this.

Love the vocals, and the backing is perfect. Sounds awesome through my speakers.

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

Marty - this song, amongst other things, demonstrates how adding more "human" elements bring the BIAB stuff lo life.
Terrific vocal, terrific narrative.
Bass is DEEEEEP and grooves.
Dave's playing - yes, a lead player who is there to hear and respond to the song make a lot of difference.
Solid mix and not nits at all.
The lyric does point out a significant difference between Murcan & Strine: your say different than & we say different to, (a short cutting of "when compared to").
Excellent.


Cheers

Clever lyrics, clever write. Great use of the guitar and the organ fills which slot in really nicely.

Great job.

Oh, you're so right, Andi. Going into that ending should have been more dramatic and dynamic.

Thanks, Brad. It's probably my old-man mouth that causes that. On the other hand, for many Rock 'n' Roll songs it's hard to figure the words, like "In a garden of Eden." hehe

Thanks, Floyd. BiaB is great, but when Dave adds his magic it finally becomes a song. It took me a few to understand "(bookended)." You're a clever dude, brother.

Thanks, Dewey. No need for jealousy, man. It's not "What [You] Need." <--a song of yours I love.

Thanks for all that, Rob. Right? Dave. What can we say? He most definitley could have made a great career as a session player because he can play pretty much any style with feeling.

Thanks, Scott. Dave really makes the song. He came in with just the right sound and feel. Yes, him and the B3 are so much fun to mix

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.
