Fresh off the press.
In a world of strong opinions and blame, maybe a little vague for some.
What do you think?

As far as I know © 2023 Vic Arnold

As far as I know, I tried my best
Blinded by uncertainty I took the test
As far as I roamed, I've never seen
a place I needed more than where I've been
And all things considered
I still bathe in the after glow ....
As far as I know.

As far as I love, I loved my wife
even when her words cut through me
like a knife
As far as it seems, she still loves me
although we're not together
like we used to be
But all things considered
it seemed right to let us go ....
As far as I know.
Ch.
As far as I know
I may know nothing.
It maybe a dream,
but at least it's something,
As far as I know
Inst.

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

I'm in two minds about the whistling esses: they give the song a elder's gravitas but also it can be cutting.

A solid, contemplative narrative carried by a good voice and band.


Cheers

Another wonderful write, Vic. Your lyrics are always so good, so relatable. Good harmony and it really helps build the song. Yeah, many times we accept knowledge as truth --as far as I know. "At least it's something."


Enjoy whatever happens!

"As far as I know". None of us will ever know more in life, I sometimes feel, than that. The singer/character of the song sounds at peace, despite acknowledging that it's all only "as far as he knows". And what more can anyone ask out of life, than that?

Superbly written, beautifully sung, as always. Congratulations.

Hey Vic,

When i first saw your title to this one I thought it was going to be a cover of this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuxEIa_uZHI

That's what's so cool about songwriting... there are so many cool angles to write on the same subject and the exact same title. Well done!

Vic,
Smooth intro and overall easy going ballad. Well written lyrics! Listens very well. Clear mix. Good one.
Thank you for sharing,
Misha.

P.S.There is some strange stuff going with vocals at ~0:20 seconds, like some kind of digital warping. Doesn't happen later into the song.

Hi Ray and thanks for listening.
On my monitors it sounds ok but on an ipad it does accentuate the highs.
I have adjusted the EQ a little now.

Misha. Your ears are probably better than mine as I can't hear the glitch.
Maybe that's a good thing, maybe not. Can you tell me what word or phrase it's on?
I appereciate the comment.

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."
