I join Dani, my new favorite of yours.
Lots of emotion through great vocals, and 3/4 for ballads is always a good choice.

Love it!

Hi, Elliott. Always a pleasure pushing play on one of your productions. Such emotion in your vocal makes this a compelling song. You've achieved a level of production that is on par or better than anything out there. I really love the arrangement here. You include so much dynamics and every instrument is perfectly played and placed. Enjoyed my first listen so much.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thank you for listening and the kind words
I've been working a lot on production techniques To get some feedback on it is good. In the past, I tended to overproduce. Now I've learned that "less is more."

Elliott,

You always do these classic-rock/(Skynyrd) sounding tracks so well! It's a beautiful trip back in time! I liked how you held the drums back as long as you did! Great vocals as usual!

Thanks, TB

Nice song Elliott, well sung too. As always, I sure liked your guitar work on this track. I really liked the finger picking and how the distorted guitar later worked in so well. Good stuff.

Nice one Elliott,
I think you could automate that 1st syllable a bit...it's loud/aggressive/harsh.
There's a cool tough edge to much of the vocal that echoes that 1st syllable but as an intro it's possibly a tad too much.
The vocal vibrato at the end of phrases works well.
The break down to the solo is really cool but I wasn't fussed on the solo's tone.
Good song, good performance & solid production.

Hi Elliott,

Another good song - very enjoyable and lots of interest and light and shade.

My only slight suggestion is the vocals which are good, energetic and tuneful.
However I would have liked to hear a bit more of your natural voice i.e. the lower and mid frequencies. It sounds as if you may have EQ rolled off those frequencies (I could be wrong).

Excellent song.

Best Regards
Nigel

You mentioned "less is more" and that is our production mantra. Someone once said perfection is not when there is nothing left to add; but, rather when there is nothing left to take away!

And we are always good with a well done 3/4 tune and, man, this is one. Great choice.

Excellent vocal, write and melody and the mix sounds good on our monitors.

Enjoyed it!

J&B

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."
