Alyn, It's fantastic to see you in the forum again!!!! Love the opening. Very mystical and haunting and spooky. When that bass comes in... the feeling is awesome and then Brent arrives a bit later and ices what is truly a spectacular cake. This is such an incredibly mind-boggling good production. Everything sits s-o-o-o-o-o well together. The arrangement and the mix are PERFECT for your narrative and the use of delay is very, very effective. I found this a magical musical journey in the best

Hi Robertkc… the lyrics followed the piano par after the first notes.... I grow up with old Italian an peruvian songs (Wvalzer and boleros) so I've been influenced in a strange way.... when I compose and play the guitar I'm generally too much melodic. TOO MUCH! Thank you for your feedback! Originally Posted By: RobertkcErmar, A fine tribute...can`t help but wonder about the lyrics in your original, but I enjoyed the feel and gradual build of this.

Since my last post last year I had lost interest in music due to a re-emergence of the worst time of my life from 20 years ago, I sometimes lurk and saw Noel's lyrics but thought that I could never write a song to those. I occasionally messed with BIAB trying to discover tricks I didn't know and playing with the RTs that I have never used and came across 2708 Autoharp. And so emerged 32 bars of Em which needed lyrics and more chords! THEN the gibsonator suddenly came back to life, took contr

Hi Rayc. I always accept critics when they're presented in a nice way. Said that, I was not 100% happy with the strings. I would've preferred a warmer presence of strings and a better integration with the piano, but I don't know very good how to use Studio One 3.... With a full time job, 2 kids and a wife, is difficult to achieve the sound I want in a few sessions. I just don't have time, and if I wait longer to finish the song, is very probable that I'll never finish it. Anyway, for me, upload

Too nice as always Noel. You keep me 100% motivated. Thank you! Originally Posted By: Noel96Ermar, I love your piano playing. You have such a lyrical, Chopinesque style to your composing and playing. In so many ways, what I'm sitting here hearing right now reminds me of Richard Clayderman.... and I mean that as a HUGE compliment. To my ears, everything about this fits perfectly -- the composing, the mix and the cinematic journey are all framed by a wonderful arrangement and a polished product

If you want to test the speed generating tracks straight from RAM and not hard drive files, just create a RAM Drive, create a RealTracks and Drums folder on it, copy the RealTracks and Drums folders that the style uses to the RAM drive, point Biab to these new locations. This will work better if you have wav files rather that wma that need decompressing first. google > ram drive software free

Hi MusicMan, It looks like all of these styles (except for the last two) were from 2014 or earlier, so would have been included with your 2016 EverythingPAK. I'll see if I can find installers that'll just install this missing stuff tomorrow though, so you don't have to install 2016, 2017, and 2018 again. Thanks Kent PG Music

Jump to new posts Re: LUFS VERSUS MASTERED Wav Size question by David Snyder @ Today at 06:45 PM

The CD version of Dancing Queen I have is 14 (streaming quality) LUFS and a respectable 11.5 in Dynamic Range. It peaks at about -0.7 so it is not hot or over compressed by today's standards. It fact in has a pleasant sound. It is not a big monster fat .wav. but not skinny either, about what you would expect from that time period. 14 LUFS and 11.5 to 12 in DR are what you are aiming for today, no matter were you are peaking volume or amplification (headroom) wise. LUFS is not the same as vol
Jump to new posts Re: Volume difference between BB and RB by Charlie Fogle @ Today at 06:43 PM

Another thing to try when you are exporting a song from Biab to RB is before closing Biab, Right click <Master> to open the drop down menu. Select <Set Mix to Flat, Dry and Center> This will change the current volume, panning and remove effects of the current BIAB song and style. The volume defaults to 90. When you open the file in RealBand, the tracks will all be at the default volume, panning and without effects. If the volume is too low or too high, adjust the default volum

"For vast majority there should be a choice, an OPTION of choosing between rendering from hard drive OR doing the process in memory. Adobe and other software companies had this option for over a decade to choose how processes are handled." You're right. I'm missing the point. You missed my point that in its present form, Biab works with every PC configuration from XP to the futuristic next years super whiz bang model meaning the final audio product is the same quality and sound reg

Hey Tangmo, I know you! Great to see you here, it’s been a while. Had a listen to your first song, well written as I remember your songs always were. I think you will be blown away once you get your disk with the real tracks, BIAB has come a long way over the last few years. MIDI is still an important part, and they now have the concept of MIDI Supertracks that kicks things up a notch. Anyway, a great community here, lots of support from most of the people here in the various forums. Lots
