Couldn’t think of no one else / working hard for my self
I didn’t have the time / but my heart changed my mind
I know that I needed more / The kind of love Ive been looking for
To open up my heart / and find what’s in the stars

Won’t spend my life alone
I know, this, is, love, for, sure / when I met you

Full of self-doubt / alone in a crowd
I have been hurt before / Don’t have those feeling anymore
To allow someone in / To fool me again

I locked my heart away
Not open to the world / as fragile as a pearl
Nothing will stand in my way
Now Im not alone / in a world of our own
Won’t spend my life alone
I know, this, is, love, for, sure / when I met you

I will give a second chance / to this crazy thing they call romance
put myself at risk / my feelings are still mixed
I will put my trust in you / and take a chance to see it through
open up my heart / to find what’s in the stars

Won’t spend my life alone
I know, this, is, love, for, sure / when I met you

Elliott,

Really nice. I love this groove and style, and it just feels fun.

A real feel good song, and very easy on the ears, and I say that as a high compliment.

Perfect for listening. Listening is important in music you know. smile

Really good stuff.

Hey Eliott, some minutes ago i was replying to your post on my song 'The dice' and now I listened to your very nice song 'When i met you'!
You let AI Natalie and Solaria do the singing. Well they did a good job.
Very nice, easy song and nice doubles in the chorusses.

While listening, i wondered how this song would sound if you sing along with the 'girls'?
After all, you have a very good voice yourself. I really like hearing that!
So, a duett could be an interesting challenge!

But to come back at the song itself. Very nice, although I had hoped for a surprise 'break' somewhere in it.
That could make it even more interesting.

Cool vibe and I really dig that bass. Natalie and Kevin are becoming some of my favs. She sounds great here and teaming her up with Solaria was a great choice. You write such good lyrics that flow so well. I like how you use dynamics. What a pleasing flow to this song, Elliott. The happy melody bounces nicely.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Elliott, this is top shelf all the way.
Man, you can make those synth voices sound so real!
Great backing tracks, I really like that stop with only a vocal and piano, brilliant!
Super groove.
Loved that bass!

Cool groove to this tune. Was surprised to hear the vocaloid. That technology blows me away. The kick drum was really cool. Really thumped my speakers. Well done

Excellent combination of Synth-V and BIAB! I especially like the way you programmed Natalie for the solo, she sounds very real, and the harmonies work really well.

My only comments:

1) The lyrics printed on your site are different here and there (compared to the recording) and since you have such good lyrics it would be great to edit them for people like me who like to follow along while listening.
2) I don't mean to be pedantic, but as the title is "when I met you" I'm wondering if perhaps the line might be better as "I knew this was love for sure / when I met you" so that it's all in the past tense. The rest of the song is in the past tense, so this would make sense to me. Just a suggestion...

Hi Elliott,
just listened to you new song, here's my feedback.

Technical feedback:
  • Good selection of instruments, a lot going on and still plenty of room for the beautiful vocals
  • I usually avoid drums that busy, but you've tamed them nicely so they don't overpower the rest of the instruments. Good work.


Artistic feedback:
  • I wouldn't call this "modern" pop, but it's definitely pop. Reminds me of the Carpenters in the most positive way. I like it a lot.


Making bits and bytes sound good...

Modern pop? Wait a minute ... we hear a great melody, lyric and chord progressions smile

Natalie and Solaria sound excellent together in this tender love song.
But we hope to continue hearing your vocals also.

The band is smooth and provides a laid back but also uplifting vibe.

Well done!

Ah - so pretty and poppy. Nice groove, smooth backing, excellent vocal.

So good, love it! smile

But... you might consider "met you" on "When I met you" with /m eh ch ew/ for a more natural sound.

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

Elliot,
Easy going tune. A bit different from your other offerings. Good production / mix and training of robo singer.
P.S.I am with J&B on "hope to continue hearing your vocals also."
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Elliott.

I love this! The writing and the arranging are superb. The production is also first class. The relaxed, easy-on-the-psyche groove really settles in well and takes the listener on very pleasurable musical journey. It's a fantastic soundscape that you've created. You have also done wonders with Natalie and Solaria. Just this week, I have been playing around with these Synth V voices and doing my best to tame them. I've still got quite a way to go to catch up to you, though!

All the best,
--Noel

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.
