Dani, You've done it again! I don't know how one even begins to create a song that has so many vocal lines weaving throughout it. It's testament to your musical skills that you make it seem so-o-o-o-o easy. Happy birthday!!!! I sure hope that there's more of this surf sound left in you yet! You've carved yourself quite a unique little nook on the forum All the best, Noel

I'm not quite sure what to say, my brain is still trying to wrap itself around where it's just been. As I've said a number of times before, your creativity is truly astounding! Hope you win!!!!

Quote:Deciduous love Leaves when summer is done I see what you did there. To be honest, the title sort of put me off - a bit too clever for my taste. And although I'm still a bit on the fence about that, everything else - singing, production, arrangement, lyric - is stellar. Excellent.

Well. Bad news for me. I went back 6 days with my restore point and now I am getting an error message saying something like "BB does not play on windows or there is an error." I tried opening old songs and new ones and still no go. Also Google Chrome is not working so I have some extensive troubleshooting I need to do, but not time right now to do it. I will get back with you folks once I get these problems sorted out at a later date. I can't let this stuff compromise what little

I agree this is an excellent song. Brian. not sure if is my monitors as I didn't listen on the headphones but I thought the vocal could come a bit forward on this one. Really liked Jaime/s voice...

Hi Brian, Are there gaps between the notes? If there aren't, you may not need to do anything, due to this feature we added in 2014: Legato Strings feature For MIDI generated tracks (or MIDI SuperTracks), if the patch is a strings patch, instead of retriggering the same note, it will play a longer single note. This results in a smoother strings part, since only notes that are changing between chords will get triggered again. For example, if the strings are playing F and Bb for a Gm7 chord,

Hi TommyC, You could get away with what you've described, or alternately install just your 2017 and 2018 versions. It doesn't look like you'd be missing anything if you took that route either. Thanks Kent PG Music

It'll be 2018, earlier versions didn't have the WAS drivers yet. I don't remember seeing that window labeled incorrectly before though, hopefully it's an old bug we fixed that I've forgotten about Cheers Kent PG Music

Check Seems that amp is not as intuitive and easy as some others when using USB. It may need Fuse for some features. May be better to just use the Line Out from the amp to a different driver in the long run (simpler), unless you want some of the Fuse features.

Jump to new posts House Party by David Snyder @ Yesterday at 03:44 PM

So, this is my submission to the Xtra Styles 5 Midi Contest. I heard the Rainbows style once and went Oh yeah. A “cheerful all-MIDI 1970 synth pop style with synth bass, synth brass, electric piano, and an echo sweep pad. Enthusiastic pop drums are played with a standard drum kit.” Right. Let’s just say Talking Heads. So, I ran the midi from that style through various "retro" synths, emulating classic synths of the 80s era

Hi Mefree When you say you can not run the program from the usb . I think you are talking about the method of purchase as an installable copy on a usn stick . this is for folks that don’t have a cd drive and don’t want to download If you purchase on a usb hard drive you certainly can run from it as it is pre installed and only needs minimal files on your system hard drive see bottom of purchase page for an explanation of destitution methods. this

Hi Tony, Can you please describe the issue in more detail? Also, are you sure you're not referring to RealTracks? I'm not seeing any options for adding MIDI tracks in double-time, though this can be done with RealTracks. Thanks Kent PG Music
