All fine from this perspective - don't turn into Kanye Elliott though.
I felt a little pressure during some of the louder vocal parts - evidenced around 1.26.
It may be that the vocal effect is causing some larger phase issues, (reminds me of the feeling I get when I hear speakers out of phase but not as aggressive as that).
Terrific singing.

I remember this being posted before - very nice.

But like rayc, I notice there's some sort of phasing going on between the harmony and the lead vocal. Not sure what it is, but... frown

Still, very nice song.

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

You are so smooth, Elliott. Love that strong bass. Did you do something different with the vocal chain on this one? Sounds over-Melodyned or something, but I really like it. The song is such a classic Kayne feel which is a good thing. Good catchy lyrics and an excellent mix. Much enjoyed.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This has a happy go lucky feel to it and was a little reminiscent of a Jimmy Buffet vibe.

Great band and those drums sound very good with a nice pop to them.

The mix sets up an excellent soundstage on our monitors.

Enjoyed it!

PS There does seem to be a “swirly” sound when harmony vocals are present. But perhaps to go with:

Elliott, Loved that groove, very Buffet like.
Great backing band, super sounding drums.
I do agree about the vocal thing but it didn't detract that much. I believe the problem is with the harmonies. Were they sang or generated by a pitch correction program?
Regardless, I really liked this one.


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.

I had to use some pitch correction especially on the long high notes and harmonies. Sometimes my skills as a composer is greater than my skills as a singer, and I write melodies I can't sing.

Hi Ellioth,

To start with your words above my post: I don't agree that there is a separation between you as a composer and as a singer.
You do very well on both parts!
A lovely song and a very nice voice.
Ah, there was some tension on the higher parts, like Ray and others wrote, but I'm sure you will fix that.
But the main thing is that it's a very lovely song!

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
