Hi all
I haven't been on the forum for quite a while, but got back on recently for technical help (with success, thanks)

Here's a song I wrote a few years ago. I think it is a good example of how great real band tracks sound. The vocals and guitar were live recorded, everything else is RB. I did all the tracks at home, then had a pro studio mix done. Hope you enjoy.

Neat song. There've been a lot of railroaders in my family and I appreciated your lyrics. The video was put together very well too.

Brian...to be sure a great train song...I live in a town where the economy is supported by the Burlington Northern and its employees...the trains run though our town every five minutes on average...I really enjoyed the song...great production and performance!

Good sound on this, Murf.
Reminds me of “The wreck of the old 97”.

That's a toe tapper. The chorus is memorable and the harmonies are a plus.

We need more passenger trains and routes in the U.S.

Hi Murf,

Enjoyed your song very much.

I particularly liked the instrumental section in the middle.

I thought your vocals in the verses could have been a touch louder.

Good work.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hey Murf, great song, great story. Love that banjo.
Also loved those old sepia vintage photos.

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.

yep i agree its a shame in lots of places 'the trains dont run anymore'.

in england there are various groups that love to rebuild
old locomotives etc etc. when i was a kid i loved to go on the mini trains.

kudos on this song.

Uplifting song with a very catchy chorus, I like it!

It's a pity that the most carbon-footprint-friendly transport solution is being abandoned more and more...

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."
