I'm a big fan of the Eagles (their songs, their band and especially their harmonies)...this is a two song medley of a beautiful old hymn and a parody of the great Eagle's tune 'Peaceful Easy Feeling'...I'm breaking a rule by sharing a cover but I did contribute some lyrics along the way and the hymn is public domain...the BiaB tracks I added really enhanced the recording IMHO...if you like three part harmony you might like this...who knows? so if you do...as always thanks for listening...Dan

Vocals: Single Heart (Dan & Gene Simmons and Bob Huston)
I played: piano, B3 organ...guitars, bass and drums were from studio tracks
I added from Band in a Box: some acoustic rhythm guitar, pedal steel, and an added drum kit (sorry I can't find the .SGU that I used...I've lost it!)

Well, the vocals are lovely throughout, and the backing instruments support them perfectly. Nice mix, too. Great song(s)!

Great harmonies on the opening.

I stuffed wax into my ears and had someone tie me to the mainsail to resist listening to the parody, so I can't comment on that. wink

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

Man, those harmonies! Too good for words. Nice job on the Parody, that's always been one of my favorite Eagles songs.

Nice one Dan, enjoyed.

Excellent harmonies throughout!
Janice’s Mama always liked Higher Ground.
And come to think of it she also liked the Eagles!

We can see how the lyric attracted you to “gospelize” this Eagles song - it all sounds "Eagles smooth."
(We are huge Eagles fans)

Enjoyed it,

J&B

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."
