Nobody But You


This is one Di and I wrote in 2010. All the backing tracks are from a different software than BIAB, with the exception of the wood block in the choruses. The wood blocks are from BIAB, as detailed below.

Backing tracks are all midi except the one mentioned above:

Vocal - Di
Wood Block - RealDrums in Song: WoodblocksEv[single]^01-Clve32LH
All Other Backing Tracks - Midis from a music generation program other than BIAB

We recorded this about a year before we bought our first edition (2011) of BIAB. Di's vocal is a tad too loud. I knew virtually nothing about mixing back then - but have, I think, learned a bit more since then.

I sliced and diced the BIAB wood block and EQ'd it a bit. I didn't use the clave portion of the Real Drums style - just the wood block. Although the wood blocks did add a little more "color" to the mix in the chorus, I primarily used it so I wouldn't feel guilty about posting the song here.

We have about 10 other songs with Di's vocals to which we might be able to add a BIAB track or two, if you are interested in hearing them. I'd try to generate new backing tracks for those songs in BIAB, but Di's health doesn't allow her to sing as she did back then. I've received numerous comments and a few PMs requesting more of Di's vocals, so this is my way of providing that without running afoul of BIAB rules.

I'm amazed that Di was able to get those high falsetto notes so cleanly with hardly any effort at all.

Hope you enjoy it.



Nobody But You

(v1)
You’re the only one who can make me feel this way
The only one I ever wanted to stay
Others have tried but they don’t compare
I shouldn’t judge ‘em cuz it just ain’t fair
They never turned me on the way that you do

CHORUS
Nobody but you, can make me feel the way that you do
The way you kiss me Baby, and look into my eyes
And, when you hold me in your arms, that’s when I realize
I don’t wanna love nobody but you

INSTRUMENTAL TURN-A-ROUND

(v2
There ain’t nobody else has ever touched my soul
You got inside my head, then my heart you stole
I thought that I’d been in love before
But you’re the one I was waiting for
From now on there’s nobody but you

CHORUS
Nobody but you, can make me feel the way that you do
The way you kiss me Baby, and look into my eyes
And, when you hold me in your arms, that’s when I realize
I don’t wanna love nobody but you

Alan, this sounds great.

Yes I would like to hear more Di! She has a fantastic voice. You two make a perfect pair.

Loved the song.

That's excellent Alan. To be truthfull I think you should recreate this song in BIAB around Di's lovely vocal. Her performance sits well with the 80s sounding Yahzoo sounding backing BUT I'd love to hear her with something more you.


Cheers

Hi Alan,

Always a treat to hear Di sing! She has quite the range, and I love her vibrato.

I'm guessing you don't have the individual tracks anymore, so can't build a new bed using BIAB. Good idea just adding in a BIAB element so you can post here.

Keep them coming!

Alan,

Di has such a great voice. I love the production on this song as well - it has that late 60s Burt Bacharach / Dionne Warwick feel & vibe.

Loved it!

Hi Mario ...

Thank you so much! And we make a perfect pair outside the music, also! I'll sort through our older recordings made on the other music platform and see which ones into which we can insert a BIAB track and post them from time-to-time.

Thanks again!

Alan

Hi Ray ...

Glad you like it. She has such a terrific voice - sad that she can no longer sing with the same depth and character. But she sings every day and sometimes finds much of the old "her".

I don't have the vocal stem from this, so I'll just have to keep at it with the EQing.

Thanks again. Always appreciate your input.

Alan

Hi Dave!

Thank you very much. And she appreciated seeing those kind words from you about her vocals. And you are correct, I no longer have the vocal stems - music stems, yes - vocal stems, no. Dang!!!

I'll post more of these older ones with a BIAB addition from time-to-time.

Thanks again.

Alan

Hi Bob ...

Now, aren't you just so dang nice!!?? We were going for an early 70s sound, so I guess we got it pretty close. Will post more of these ever so often.

Many thanks!

This has a soul 60s vibe. That was when soul music was really good. Enjoyed the song.

Alan and Di...this is really a lovely recording of Di...I know the challenge of having recorded vocals that you wish you could have to marry with updated tracks from BiaB (most of my posts are using vocals that I've extracted from old tracks and given new life to with BiaB)...the technology exist now to do it...I use a Steinberg software called SpectraLayers to rip vocals off of old recordings that I no longer have the individual tracks to... the technology is not perfect as it leaves faint artifacts from the other tracks but these can be hidden with a few tricks and when the BiaB tracks are added to the vocals, they can rarely be heard...if you are interested at all send me a private email and I would be happy to help out...it is a great vocal!

This is a good composition. An enjoyable 60s style female vocalist song. Di sounds good. It's great that you capture her earlier in her prime.

PS, I still don't know anything about mixing.

I like it! smile

The rules state the forum is for BiaB users, but doesn't actually say that BiaB needs to be used - only that the tracks should be listed if BiaB was used. wink

Pulling vocals out of existing tracks is worth looking into. Other tracks will "damage" the vocals, depending on how similar the are to vocals, or how they mask the vocals. But since this often happens in places the mix will cover (for example, on drum beats), this can be solved.

So... yes, I'd like to hear more, even if you don't apply snazzy technology on top of it. laugh

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

What a wonderful voice. Love it, Alan & Di. Cool feel reminiscent of what Barry Gordy would've been proud to record. Love that natural vibrato.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Dewey ...

Thank you very much! And yeah, we've always clicked pretty darn good on both the music and personal scenes. I'll be posting more of these early songs as I get the time to do the editing, remastering, etc. Appreciate your kind comments.

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."
