https://soundcloud.com/billy900/hear-your-voice

Recorded on: Fostex DMT8
Alesis SR16 Drums
BIAB providing Bass and Keys...
Me on vocals and guitars..



I'd love to hear your voice again,
I want to see your face and hold you close again,
When we've been apart too long - I feel so numb inside,
When you go away I cannot keep away the tide.

I feel you driving here to meet me,
I'm stretching out my mind and hoping that you'll feel me,
I'm not saying that I cannot live without you here,
But I only feel alive when I can have you near me.

Chorus:
I think of all the things I always meant to say.
I wonder if I'll ever have the chance to tell you this someday.

I'm reaching out my hand to touch you now
Realizing that the distance is behind us somehow,
Got a feeling for you that is deeper than my pride,
Now we are together, all my troubles stand aside.

Chorus: 2.
I'm saying all the things I always meant to say.
I'm filled with wonder that you always seem to say you knew that anyway..

Cool song.
The Alesis brings back the 80s in a big way.
The harmony & main vocal levels are at war in a few spots.
Good singing through out.


Cheers

I really liked your vocals on this song. Thanks for posting this. It took me back to the 80's too. My only nit pick would be to add some dynamics so it didn't all sound the same. Maybe some rests and stuff. Nice song.

Rocky,

Yeah, an 80’s feel to this . . . maybe even a 70’s feel . . . but regardless a cool sounding tune—good recording and production. Nice smooth vocals, great bed. Harmonies sound pretty solid to me over the laptop—particularly on that second chorus. Well done!

Kind regards,

Deej

A super produced late 70s to 80'style song.

Really good vocals and harmonies.

Super groove.

Great 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.

Billy,
Neat arrangement & structure and very good vocals. A bit on High frequency of things for my taste, but nevertheless listens very well. Liked it and thank you for sharing.
Misha.

P.S. As far as constructive feedback goes. I am just guessing, are you uploading MP3 to Soundcloud? There seems to be a known issue, when files are less than 24 bit Wav's Soundcloud squashes some qualities of sound. If I am right, try uploading 24bit Wav to SC and compare the two side by side.

"I'd love to hear your voice again" Yep! I read the comments before pushing play, and everyone talking about your strong vocal. Wow, these guys know what they're talking about. Such excellent singing. Range and quality are terrific. I really enjoy the harmony. Whereas I almost always agree with Ray, I hear no fighting among the voices. Very good progression and mix.


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.

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."
