Hi All,

Here's a simple little folk tune called Lost & Found.

I hear her voice in the deep twilight
You dream your dream live your life
Try to find the sound
I get lost I get found

My baby’s wild she lives on the ledge
She sits along the river’s edge
This mountain town
She gets lost she gets found

Songbird living outside my door
He sings loud when it starts to pour
Song goes round
He gets lost he gets found

I used to be your Superman
Catch my breath take my hand
Lose time gain ground
I get lost I get found

Lovely song, Bob, I like the laid back vibe. Always enjoy your lyrics and vocal!

Track sounds great, very effective waiting for the second verse to bring in the drums.

Nicely done!

Man, you are so good at this, Bob. You write such great lyrics that it's often easy to miss how cool the music is. There is actually so much going on, and you mix it all so well with just the right piece coming in at just the right time. I am a huge fan!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Oh wow. So beautiful, so poetic, so atmospheric. A (somewhat veiled) love song, am I right? Beautiful in every way, in any case. Bravo.

Hey Bob, it really is a soothing melody and thought-provoking lyrics. One suggestion based on the rule of two: bring the instrumental interlude in after the 2nd verse. Overall, I really liked it, though!

Hi Bob.
I'm still trying to work out the meaning but I do like the ambiguity.
I'm thinking you could change the melody slightly in the last verse to give the listener a surprise.

Good one.
Vic

Bob.

Everything about this is Excellent.
Lyric, vocal, Band choices, Mix.
Because of how GOOD they sound, I often look back to see what RTs you are using. In this case...the acoustic and the drums...

SO good.

I like it! You do these so well, they feel effortless.

As Vic says, it's sort of hard to make out the POV with the shifting pronouns, but like him, I can also live with the ambiguity. smile

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

This song is a winner Bob.
Everything about this one is, as usual, top notch.
A pro sounding production for sure.
Great lyrics, vocal, backing band, and mix.

This song is something John Prine would write and sing so outstanding job Bob.


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.

The sudden coutrification via steel came as a shock but it works well.

Gentle singer-songwriter tune. Nice puzzling poetry - I like the superman reference. Good band, I like the use of the loops. Emotional singing, especially in the songbird verse.

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."
