Hi floyd,

This is great.

Everything about this from writing to final mix is beyond the ordinary. You have a well-honed knack for polishing productions. Every time I listen to one of your songs, I am consistently hypnotised by your abilities.... singing, writing, arranging, mixing.

Brilliant. Again.

All the best,
Noel

200+ songs and still going strong! smile


Thanks for the listen and comments, David!! There isn't a tambourine in the mix at all, so I imagine what you are hearing is the (very loose) open hi-hat. I'm not a fan of that sound myself (and often complain about it in other people's mixes). The drums are a stereo mixed drum track (from Drums On Demand, I think...I have so many lying around, it's hard to keep track of where things come from at times). There is also a ride cymbal that I am not fond of in it. And when I re-mix (right before posting) I got that track a little too "hot" (with an EQ plugin) - keying more on the snare sound, neglecting the sharpness of the cymbals/hi-hats (and, these ears aren't getting any younger, so I may be making more mistakes these days).

As always, you've got an excellent band to go along with your excellent vocals and the sweet lyric (Janice's lyric description) and fine mix.

A bit of the blast from the past but what's wrong with that?
Nothing in our book.

Production wise your high bar retains it's highness!

J&B



Thanks, y'all!! Moo!!!!!

Great pop intro with very good drum groove, bit Eagles there. Nice chord progression, especially in the verses. The solo fits very well. Good vocals as always.

Thanks, Janne...

Floyd,

Another tight tune, with all the right elements exactly where they need to be. Nice job on the harmonies in the chorus; great mixing to get them sounding like that. Cool 70’s-like country rock tune. Killer solo on this as well. Great work on this!

All my best,

Deej

HEY FJ,
A little late getting back on this but.......
I'm interested in your entire vocal recording/processing.

Primarily, what's your tracking set up? Any special mics, preamps processing on the ay in.

Secondly, how are you processing your vocals, are you mixing your own work?
Everything always sounds clear and present.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks
moto

This delivery is outstanding, but reflects the classic Westcoast sound of the '70's that is absolutely tireless.

Another winner.

moto - I'd be happy to describe my vocal chain and processing, but a Showcase thread seems the wrong place to do that...
So...

I'll work up a discussion to go in the "Recording, Mixing, Performance and Production" section of the forum (so watch for that) - and perhaps others can join in and talk about how they do vocals, too. We might all learn something - and it is less likely to get "lost" as it would here (in this thread)...


Might take me a little while to get to that and write it out....

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
