Rustyspoon#, You're correct that you can spend a lot of time waiting for Band-in-a-Box to render. Selective rendering could reduce wasted time. But at the same time that's why I appreciate the multi-riff feature in RealBand. I believe the more you try to force Band-in-a-Box to render bars exactly to match specifically what you hear in your mind, the more time you will spend waiting while tracks are rendered. That is time lost. I also believe new users loose more time than seasoned users.

BIGALTX, First off, welcome to BIAB! I’m pretty much a newbie myself, but I think you’ll find this a very receptive and supportive forum. Not sure if this is your first foray into BIAB software, but if it is I’m pretty jealous—you’ve done some really nice things here. For me, the opening was a bit too fast and loud—like being slung right off into a tornado—so, and this is just my two cents, think about opening up a little more softly and building from there.

Dave, This is so strong—so much going on here that works so well. The first verse is exceptional, the melody to the verses is near perfect. If I were to nit-pick, in that second verse the “kill or be killed” line doesn’t quite resonate--maybe a bit too harsh-- nor “urge to deceive”—but’s that’s just my take. It may be an opportunity to tweak, or not. Use or lose. The chorus is solid; lyrically killer and the phrasing is sweet. That said, it didn’t quite strike me as a

OCC this is excellent! Great song. I am still sad about Ray's passing. I spoke to Ray a few times via the phone. I was on a couple of his songs. My wife and I were going to visit Ray and Paulie but he passed away before we got a chance to head south. Ray was a very good Internet friend.

Agreed Jim. I snagged this from Wiki..... Quote:Aretha Franklin released a cover version of the song in the middle of 1971 that outperformed the original on the charts, charting #1 R&B for three weeks and #2 Pop for two weeks. Aretha Franklin's version earned a gold single for sales of over one million. Dr. John played keyboards on Franklin's version with Bernard "Pretty" Purdie on drums and Chuck Rainey on bass. This version hit #6 on Billboard's Easy Listening chart. Franklin a

Jim, as I mentioned I do not want to compare apples to oranges. I only brought up ChordPulse to put accent on what is elegance vs clutter. Complexity should not be excuse for clutter. Guys, I know that you are trying to help, thank you! I am sure you know about BIAB 10 times more than I. The last time I have tried it over a decade ago and gave up on it. This year I bought it and tried to approach it with open mind. This thread caught my attention, because rendering does steal a lot of time an

That`s a very supportive review - thank you!

That's a very good song. I bet it would get more attention if you posted the link in the User Showcase section of the forum. I barely remember Ray as he quit posting about the same time I started visiting the forum. I'm sorry our paths didn't cross more.

If you get the Windows Task Manager up and look at the RAM being used by bbw.exe you will see it grow as the tracks are generated, add double the amount of bars and double the RAM is used. The saved SGU with frozen tracks will just contain the the position, length and transposed information only of the section from the source wav/wma so it will use that information to load the same section back to RAM rather than a new random one. In RealBand it uses bbw2.exe in the background to generate up the

Suggest that you remove the note in the next bar and extend the length of the note in the first bar. There are several ways to do this, but in edit mode, right-click and edit the note. You can change the length from there. You can also do this in the piano roll (might be easier)

Open the song file. Change the file name and save under the new name to create a back up file. Click on the gray snowflake icon for each track. The snowflake icon turns blue to indicate the track is "frozen" and can not be changed. Save the song file. Attach the saved song file to an email. The email should also reference this forum post along with a "what to look for" issue description. Mail the email to "support@pgmusic.com".

rockstar_not, I entirely get what your saying. Country singer Luke Bryan has a song called M-O-V-E that I feel the same way about. The song itself is infectious but one line ruins the song every time I hear it and the line is repeated MANY times. It's something like "and girl you're so d*mn hot". Best guess I can come up with is the songwriter was lazy. I will say this though, coarse language presently seems to be in vogue, same with tattoos and piercings. Different times, diffe
