This song is very impactful and definitely atmospheric. I think you nailed all the things you set out to do.

This sounded like such a fun experiment! It was really going pretty fast at times. I definitely sounds like you had fun with it!

Joanne, Excellent sequence, very clearly explained. I don`t have Melodyne ( wish list) and have never used vocal tuning but having used the manual tuning feature available with Reaper on one song I now agree with you- a little tweak can really make a difference. That trick of using TC Helicon harmonies to generate and then learn harmonies is one of the best features of BiaB! Robert

We tend to initially be attracted to guitar tones we like and then move on to the actual playing. You always have a feel for THE tone to support the feel of the composition and your playing. Thanks for letting hear this version. Very nice! J&B

Thanks Guitarhacker! That's just about what I ended up doing. I did some 'net surfing on the specs for the 2 Shure mics I had. Then I just plugged the PBass into the "High" input, and tried each of the mics into the "Low" input until I found something what worked. Thanks to all for your input and ideas. I used the setup at a gig yesterday and it was fine. Another one today, quite a bit bigger venue. I think that little Roland amp will be adequate. LLOYD S

Wow - what an interesting and wonderfully bizarre tune! I'm almost getting a Frank Zappa/Captain Beefheart sort of vibe here. It is unorthodox, dizzying, but also somehow infectious and catchy too. I really enjoy how unpredictable and strange it sounds. Great work here, Tano - thanks for sharing

“Well the smoke and fog is lifting As I leave this burning town I don’t know how it happened But somebody tried burn the whole place down I told them it was coming So get ready for the Apocalypse Now I’m driving cross this wasteland For one last kiss from your sweet lips” Spot on lines. Terrific write and a very effective production with the build. Great work! J&B

I'm posting this in the off topic because I didn't use BIAB or any PG Music products in the creation of this, but I wanted to share it with the great community we have here. Tippy Toe and Jump My 3 year old son and I just did our first songwriting collaboration. He came up with the hook for this song all on his own as he was dancing around the house singing Tippy Toe and Jump. After a couple days of this I knew I had to make him his own song. I started slapping some synth parts together a

Although a DAW would be much better for this task try this: 1-pick a style 2-set the tempo to 70 3-in the first measure put C. 4-import your audio file and start it on the second measure The dot after C means rest. You will hear a count in followed by a measure of silence. Your wav will play but the style will not. In a DAW you can get exactly what you want but this is a BiaB work-around. Good luck.

Jump to new posts Re: Rural satellite internet service by Notes Norton @ 07/12/18 07:37 AM

Congratulations on your move. Small towns have that trade-off with convenience. I investigated satellite service back in the Internet Dark Ages (1990s) when my phone service was undependable. They guaranteed me the satellite gear would work but not that I would be able to get on the Internet. I'm sure it's much better now. Now I get DSL-Lite with the phone company, I'm too far away from the end of the fiber optics to get real DSL, so even YouTube buffers a few times. I live along a 15 mile

What a tune! I thoroughly enjoyed this one. As others said, it has a very cinematic feel to it. It definitely lives up to the title. I love how it slowly builds and builds, and becomes more and more epic. It truly does feel thunderous. Really well done - thanks so much for sharing

I was wondering how fast I could make a 3/4 tempo with BIAB...so this track varies the speed from 300bpm all the way up to 500bpm, with a 'breather' in the middle at 150. Interesting exercise..

User Blog - Recording and Processing Vocals Using RealBand...

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
