Hey guys...I just finished remastering this older song of mine...the new cut is a mix of my Yamaha Genos and BiaB...it's what I'd call a building ballad...it starts soft but builds to the soaring strings in the interlude..so if you do...thanks for listening.

Dan,

Your blend of BIAB and your keyboard really flows together well! It's a lovely tune the expresses the feelings of many listeners! I have made several comparisons in the past of singers you reminded me of. This time I am reminded of Elvis doing gospel! Your voice is certainly of such a high caliber that it's not out of line to make that comment! Man, you nailed it on this one!

Thanks, Torrey

Man, you really are a master at coming up with strong melodies, professional song structures, and great vocals, every time!

The string/orchestral breaks work extremely well and enhance the emotion of the song.

Hi Dan ...

What a gorgeous song! And you already know how much I enjoy your vocals. A very nice, gentle mix. Really nice done in all respects.
The b/g vocals are perfectly done.

Nicely done! Reminiscent of the Maverick's hit - I should have been true.

Fantastic production Dan. I agree with everything Torrey had to say. The mix of your stuff with Biab is perfect, but I suppose what I like the most is how this production really allows your voice to shine. Simply great.

Loved this Dan. Super vocal and lyric. Loved the energy build in the song. Loved how the piano gently came into the song. Well done

Dan,

Nice!
A good write.
Really nice production.
Strong vocals.
Solid mix.
All the boxes checked.

(it DOES sound like a song that Elvis might have done)

I'm always surprised at the length of your songs (often close to 5 minutes) and, yet, they do not seem "too long"...

Well done.

Floyd...thanks for your thoughts...I've been accused of writing songs that would never be played on radio because of their length...even by co-writers and often by critiques...I guess they are what they are (the songs I mean)...I think I finish them when they're done...I really appreciate that comment though...but I admit sometimes I go on too long...thanks again...Dan

This is a lovely ballad and has a good combo of BiaB and your performances.
The piano especially sounds nice!

We get both the Mavericks and the gospel Elvis (post Blackwood Brothers period) production comparisons and they are both good.

Stellar vocals, as expected. smile

Another fine production!

As soon as this started I thought of the gospel Elvis record that I have.

This an outstanding and professional sounding song.
Outstanding vocal and some very inspiring lyrics.
Outstanding backing band and mix.

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.

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."
