Howdy Bosco....(Please leave constructive criticism.)

I gave a listen....even though it's not a genre I could pull off. smile

Very good smooth jazz cut.
Lead vox/harmonies sound good and tightly arranged & performed well.

Personally, if I were asked:
I'd prefer the trap set come in much sooner and not have it drop out at all.
Maybe just brushes and/or light hi-hat & rim shot where you drop out the trap set.
That's not a criticism at all.
I may be talking out of 'smooth jazz' school here anyway.
It stands on it's own just fine as is.

Just my subjectivity rearing it's head which you can totally ignore.

Good luck with your music endeavors.

Carry on....

Hi Bosco,

What a song and what a production - fabulous!

I would be most interested in learning more about the performers - in particular who is singing the lead vocals and who does the BV's?

Also - did you use all BIAB Real Tracks and which ones?


I Look forward to hearing more like this.

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.
I originally had the drums play from the beginning and not drop out but decided to try some different dynamics, a sort of faux rubato, allowing the slightly off rhythms of the bass, piano and guitar to float a little. I should do a remix for the dancers.

BIAB inspired is a good thing.
I'll be inspired to listen & comment when I've seen a little more of that sort of thing from you too.


Cheers

Thank you, Nigel.
I hired a vocalist via Fiver to sing lead and most harmonies with the exception of a female vocalist friend of mine.
Most of the instruments are Realtracks. I added some guitar, bass, keys and strings.

Not really Bosco.
If I were being "snarky", (irritable, fiery, petulant, peevish, snappish, snippy, irascible, grumpy), I would have called you out directly for not offering what you willingly receive. Instead I nudged you toward participation. Many, many people leaves links to songs on the forum and comply fully with the requirements & reommendations set out at the top of the main page.

"In the "Body" of your forum post, please provide the following information (the more info, the better):

(Required) URL to the song. This is the URL to an external site like SoundCloud - the songs are not hosted on our site.
(Required) Song title
Background information about the song
Song Lyrics
Indicate which tracks were recorded by you, and which tracks were generated by Band-in-a-Box or RealBand.
If Band-in-a-Box or RealBand have been used, please provide information as to which styles or RealTracks were used. Tip: In Band-in-a-Box, the Song Memo contains the names of the RealTracks used, and you can copy/paste from that.
List other programs used in the production (e.g. DAWs like Pro Tools, Cakewalk, Cubase etc.)
Any other additional information about your recording and mixing process - e.g. what effects were used in the production (reverb, auto-tune etc)."

Additionally, many of them, though not me, would be happy if you would "Please leave constructive criticism."

Right from the start it sounded like one of my favorite singers, Greg Johnson. You can find him here --highly recommended. Yes, I like the "faux rubato" you mention. It worked well. Ray is right, and his snarkiness is well-placed. It is always much more helpful and fun to see how the BiaB inspiration took form, and it's especially helpful listing the pieces and lyrics. There is a very helpful instruction right at the top of the Showcase.

Anyway, the song. Love that bass, and especially the interplay of harmony in the vocals. When the drums come in, the excitement that precedes it takes on a promised feel, and I like the dynamics you created. Man, excellent choice of vocalists. A fun listen.


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.

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.
