Amber's vocal was perfect Dan. Loved how her vocal broke in a few places. Gave so much feeling to the song. Beautiful backtrack and lyric. Well done

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

Hi Dan,

It seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

She has a lovely voice, great tone, power, and vibrato. And passion!

Really enjoyed this, thanks for sharing.

I wasn't here in 2018, so I'm sure glad you reposted this now. Great song. I thought it had kind of a "There's a lighthouse" feel to it. Some of those cord changes reminded me of that song - one of my favorites. Amber did an excellent job with the vocals. I've liked her singing before, but this one really stood how. Strong, clear and so country. Don't know who's idea it was to add those harmonies, but that was a great idea - and very well done.

Nice voice with all the right catches and quirks that suggest sincerity & intimacy.
There's a fair bit of sibilance are a result of the reverb and recording though.
Nice mix for an understated backing.


Cheers

Beautiful.

We love the harmonies that accompanied the modulations. As mentioned by others, Amber’s sincere delivery is lovely.

The band you have assembled is the perfect match too!
The piano, strings and BiaB tracks are very nicely mixed.

Enjoyed it,

J&B

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."
