I was about 12 when we started our first family band...now that was 58 years ago and ever since then my cousin Gene Simmons (yes that's his real name from birth unlike the other guy) and I have been in bands together...long story short this recording is the only one we ever made of just him and I doing all the vocals ourselves (we usually were the harmony singers and others sang the melodies)...anyway, I am thrilled that BiaB came along so we could sing it with some great musicians backing us...the vocals are from tracks we made in 1995.

I changed the tempo and the original tracks were not recorded with a MIDI clock so I had to cut words and stretch them digitally...it took days but...Wow!...that we can do this today is so cool!

So if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

Fantastic!

You did such a good job on adjusting those vocal tracks that if you hadn't mentioned it I would have thought you recorded the vocals to the BiaB tracks. Outstanding job.

Super vocals and mix

You did one heck of a job on this song.


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.

It took days I'm sure, but so worth the effort, Dan. A beautifully written song, and you guys present it so well. I can't even imagine where to begin to align these tracks, but you did it seamlessly.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dan,

I agree that it's great that we can do so much in our home studios that we could dream about years ago! This vocal transplant into the new track sounds flawless to me! For what it's worth, your Gene has a much superior voice to his namesake! One good thing is that when someone googles the other Gene, maybe they will stumble across your music!

This track sounds wonderful with the rich smooth vocals at the center of attention and deservedly so!

Thanks, Torrey

Very cool Dan. I got a Peter and Gordon vibe during some of your harmonies. Gave me a little whoa moment. Vocals and harmonies were stellar. Excellent lyric and backtrack. Well done...

Nice song. And I do certainly love technology and what we're able to do today.

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? 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."
