Jump to new posts Re: Performing with backing tracks by JohnJohnJohn @ 7 minutes 42 seconds ago

I guess it always depends on what the listener expects (and has paid for!) If I am having a few drinks with friends and we are enjoying each other's company then, as a listener I don't care if it is one guy with backing tracks or the radio playing over the bar's speakers. On the other hand, if I purchased a ticket and will be there to watch & listen to a performance, I'm not really very keen on seeing & hearing someone sing along to prerecorded tracks. Not saying it is bad or wrong...jus

One last thought on this thread and that is I figured out a "work-around" that will do until I decide on which laptop to get. Basically, I am using the Export Function to create a .wav file. I have the appropriate number of choruses and solos, and I play it on my CD player or Windows Media Player. Also, when I record songs, I just record the .wav file on a track and then solo over it on a different track.

I think that might be Vince Gill in that picture up there. He's touring with these guys. I think that is why he posted this.

This is absolutely deserved, and comes from no small contribution or inadequate ability. This comes from pure genius, unbelievable hard work and genuine dedication. Well deserved.

Dixie I posted this in the Xtra Styles Contest but wanted to share it here as well. I've always loved this classic American song. I especially love the version that Lee Greenwood did in 1992. When I heard the demo for this new RealTrack style I knew I wanted to do something classically American with it. My first thought was "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" but then I realized that it wasn't in the public domain. So I figured I would see if I could do Dixie justice. Let me know what you

Wow, so good! One of your best vocals ever, very emotive and heartfelt. And man, the track sounds fabulous! Great mix and production. Listened first through the studio monitors and then through the 'phones. Exceptional!

You could try this as I found audio related stutters, and hanging even of audio playback hanging, with an USB RME breakout box, due the graphics drivers, in my case Radeon-AMD. It was not always, but once started, getting worse and worse. The only solution was and still is using the basic Microsoft driver from Win 10. Probably these gamer's stuff accelerations and hyperthreading settings (turn it off in your BIOS) conflict with audio real time. Not only AMD drivers suck, but also those from NVDI

Floyd: Loved this basic, direct love song. As usual, first-rate composition and production! Really liked how you 'hung' the chorus on the word 'everything'-- excellent song architecture. Don't you agree that the hallmark of a worthy song is that some portion of it is memorable, even after listening? I think you have this with the word 'everything'. A listener might not remember the details of the song, but that last simple phrase (music and lyric)--"everything"--sticks in the min

Really enjoyed the piano. With the sound of the waves in the beginning, it kind of got me in a George Winston mood, with the seasonal oompositions he has put out. His December remains one of my all time favorites. I must admit I liked the piano moreso than the other instruments that found there way into the piece. For me, they distracted from the soothing nature of the piano. All subjective though. Interesting piece for sure. Dave

Wow - congrats to the Eagles Never been a huge fan myself, but I can acknowledge all they've done for music. Something that blew me away, is that this greatest hits album doesn't include Hotel California on it - arguably their most famous song. That's because this Greatest Hits album is 1971-1975, whereas Hotel California didn't come out until 1976. If that isn't a testament to their accomplishments, I don't know what is.

Back to what it is all about … Love Songs. Great stuff Floyd. I too love the simplicity of the structure, theme and song. Back to basics and pure gold. Your voice is always the star of the show and this is no different. Congrats on another great tune. Dave
Jump to new posts Re: Volume difference between BB and RB by 2bSolo @ Today at 06:36 AM

Just checked the Plug-ins on the Combo slot. It says None. I think I can work around this problem. However, this is one more thing that makes me think I need a new DAW to use with BIAB. Crashes, inconsistent performance, inexplicable events. I guess it is time to try some of the free trials. Who knows? Maybe they are all this glitchy and I will be happy to return to RB. We'll see. Thanks to all for your help!

Hey Floyd, This is great. Loved the simplicity of it. Funny there seems to be some similarity of themes on the forum these days--some kinda zeitgeist. It's a good zeitgeist. Excellent production man. Real ear candy all the way through. Gorgeous and sincere vocals too.
