Hi all,
I'm not used to write lyrics in english and Thierry Fraisse isn't used to sing in english...But, we've tried!

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/i-dont-want-to-hold-you-back

Certainly
Yes, I would miss you
But you’re free
To try something new
I don’t want to hold you back
Act as you feel it

If you know
Greener grass elsewhere
You can go
Instead staying there
I don’t want to hold you back
Leave if you need it

Love is not
A so simple game
There’s a lot
People with no flame
I don’t want to hold you back
But stay if you wish it

I like your song, it's still a French song, even with English lyrics.

The song sad and intimate. Your vocals are perfect for that mood.
The arrangement is spot on and works great against the lyrics.
Your choice of real tracks for this piece is excellent.
Production is spot on excellent job

Very well done! Great prosody and production along with a beautiful voice. Love the mandola and mandolin choice and then ending with the dobro (aka, resonator guitar)!

A nice calm song about love being lost.
Your vocalist did a fine job.
Thanks for sharing.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Chris...I really like your track and your great use of the BiaB tracks you selected...Thierry has a great voice (very expressive and passionate)...I do believe the song would have been expressed better in French (IMHO)...but gorgeous in any language!

Tried my foot, you two nailed it!
Great vocal and lyrics.
Super backing band and mix.
This is really a fantastic 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.

Chris & Thierry ...

No apology needed. The lyric is excellent. And Thierry sang it with excellence. He has a very expressive voice and the sadness of the story comes through perfectly.

The backing tracks are wonderful! This is an extremely-well and nicely-delivered song. Excellent work by both of you!

On Soundcloud, the singer is Thierry.
And on YouTube the singer is Julia.

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.

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."
