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

You've got a great voice for this style, Nigel. And I thought the guitar was great. Great production and arrangements, really liked those breaks - a real toe-tapper.

Very effective use of stops, and I don't think I've heard the Oliver Gannon tracks in a blues (or any) context.

Nicely done all round.

FUN!!!!!!!!!!! smile

You're so good at this stuff, and one can hear you enjoying recording the song ... there is the ever so subtle trace of a smile and a grin on some of your intakes of breath - which is wonderful! :-) It shows you're having fun, as much as the listener is having fun listening.

Bravo - a real pro at work, imo smile

Sounds great.
I got a Nat King Cole vibe from this one.
You always do professional sounding songs.
Great vocal, great blend of RTS and mix.


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.

Nigel,

You always do great work . . . and no exception here. Clean, crisp mix . . . love those little bass runs that you’ve featured. The guitar solo fits the tune perfectly. The vocal works equally well. It all comes together . . . Excellent work!

All my best to you,

Deej

Nigel,

It's a really fun performance.
I feel like I'm in some jazz club.
The vocals are great and the guitars are great too.
It's really like listening to a live performance.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

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.

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."
