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

Smooth like crunchy peanut butter - little nuggets of texture and taste to keep it interesting.


Cheers

This is top shelf work Nigel. For me there's a taste of Motown/R&B goin on here and as stated above, it's smoooth.
Love the band and the guitar squeaks.

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.

Good song with a nice drive, I like it a lot.
Maybe you could post the lyrics, I don't understand all of it.

This song has a terrific slow burn. Loved it! There are very short volume dropouts at 0:34, 1:10 and elsewhere that seem intentional but I wasn't sure. Not a big deal. Great job!

Hi TuneMonger,

Thanks for your comments.

Those dropouts are where only the guitar is playing.

However - you are right - a couple of those are a bit quiet so I have made them a bit more aggressive and louder.

Best Regards
Nigel

Sounds much better to my ear, Nigel!

What a great lineup of talent, including the singer, Nigel. Love this easy-feel, and bouncing melody. You're right, that guitar and harmonica work so well. Great pro mix and that feel is so catchy.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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."
