Hey guys...I've always dreamed of hearing a few of my songs performed with a symphony orchestra...this is one of them...unfortunately that has not happened (and most likely never will) so I have to settle with the 'Firesong Symphony Orchestra' (aka. the Yamaha Genos)...the theme is praise and the intent is to give glory and praise to the source of any song I've ever written...so...if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

For all the symphonic elements, this is just about the prettiest song I've ever heard from you. I think you should be thrilled with this. Really top level, even for your high standards. Fantastic stuff.

This is really well done, excellent orchestration and you have a voice that fits this kind of arrangement perfectly.
And that's a really good mix, wide, open and transparent.

Hi Dan
Wow !!!
That sounds really big
Such an elaborate background track - incredibly good
And the ending is so awesome - Really great
Good that you can fulfill the dream of the orchestra itself !
I always have to ask Shigeki ;-))))
Great work Dan
Many greetings

Everyone already beat me to it: a big sound.

As usual, great vocals and arrangement.

Very cool.

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

Awesome vocal and lyric Dan. Really big sound. I agree this would be awesome with a live symphony and church choir. Well done...

Really well done, Dan, like everyone else has already said, a BIG sound.

Good write, but the icing on the cake of course is the vocal.

Excellent!

Ah, The Firesong Orchestra. Excellent choice, Dan. Very well produced. Good write, and a nice nod to the writer. Man, you've done an excellent job building this gem to such soaring heights of symphonic sounds.


Enjoy whatever happens!

David...thanks so much for your kind comments...yes, I loved the picture too...I found it on the internet...sorry can't remember which site and not sure what the picture is (?)...I just thought it would make a great album cover so I put the title of the album "New Jerusalem" on it....sorry not to be able to answer your question...Dan

Dan,

That orchestra sounds fantastic! I know it's the Genos, but the folks at Yamaha really did a great job putting that instrument together! You also did a great job putting this song together! The vocals are super! The harmony is as good or better than anything ever posted here! Nice job hitting those high notes...you're singing like you are in your 20's! What a great ending on this...pro all the way!

Thanks, Torrey

In one word, MAGESTIC.

You can just close your eyes and pretend you’re in front of that orchestra, Dan.

Lyric, vocals, arrangement, RT’s, Genos magic and mix are all top notch.

Well done!

Thanks so much to everyone for your gracious comments about My Highest Praise...the Genos is a great workstation...a lot of it's features are still beyond my paygrade (as with BiaB)...but both have opened up new horizons in creative thought and inspired a great deal of my music...we are all so blessed to be able to produce in our homes what years ago we could only dream of doing in expensive studio time.

You indeed brought it.
That was an excellent song, lyrically and musically.
And you have a great voice. I loved the harmony as well.
All I can say after that is, Praise Jesus!

Wow Dan! I guess you know that I'm a big fan of your music, but gosh you outdid yourself here. What a sound! This song has an anointing and you did one heck of a production here. I needed this song today ... it really brought me into a worship mindset.

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!

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."
