I remember my first TI-55 that helped me through my engineering classes. Now I could have insisted on doing everything long-hand with my slide rule but I realized early on that you use the best tools available at the time to get the job done. So, yes, of course I use Ozone! And if I happen to like a preset with or without a little tweaking then I am just that much further along in the process. And I honestly don't care if I miss a learning experience by using a preset rather than handcraftin

Hello All, Just thought I'd check in. We've been on the road a week or so. We are laying over for a day or two in Las Cruces NM. I brought enough of my equipment to form a rudimentary studio setup, so I threw this one together tonight. The song has been around a while. I released it on an album I did back in 2000, but I thought I would see if I could recreate it with BIAB for the holiday. I had to do the backup vocals myself, the original had a quartet, but they wouldn't fit in my motorhome. I a

Just purchased an Irig Keys midi controller. Found bad latency when building a song midi file in Power Tracks 2016. Tried ASIO but unable to play and record at same time. Bit the bullet and tried RealBand 2018 with its WAS driver. Wow!! Play and record works fine with almost undetectable latency on the keys input. Thanks Jeff and all at PG Music. Garth

Hi Loren and Courtney Love the jazz, the arrangement and the phrasing. Have had several listens and it just gets better. Could be from a movie and something a little Manhattan Transfer about the cool style. Oh, and my favourite line -- 'Or, to the ocean and swim with the sharks…' Two thumbs up. Cheers.

I envy those of you like Herb and Bud that have the background experience or knowledge to HAVE trained ears and mixing skills. Many, do not. I confess I am one of the unskilled. Of course Herb is correct. Bud's correct too. In the beginning a user may need to depend on presets 100% to create audio that can be listened to without cringing. There is a reason Toontrack can sell EZ Mix bundles and everyone loves Ozone. The truth is not everyone has the skills to create a listenable mix or the

Hi Rob, Yes, this is fantastic track. Your voice works perfectly for this one ... and many others. When I lived in San Antonio, TX, many years ago, Jalisco music from strolling Mariachi bands on the River Walk .The San Antonio River runs through the heart of the city and the banks on either side are highly commercially developed. This brought back a few good memories. Really enjoyable! Wishing you well, Alan

Hi Obcutter, In your C:\Users\Public\Ticket folder, there's a file called Band-in-a-Box_SerialNumber_bb2018_full.txt, containing the old serial. If you open that file, replace the old serial with your new one, then open Band-in-a-Box, the Download Manager should see the UltraPAK content right away. Thanks Kent PG Music

Genius writing again from you Floyd. This is magical, both in its sensational instrumentation, but even more so because of the sensational lyrics. This is story telling - put to music - at its absolute best. A real winner. Polished delivery. Class? No question at all.

In one of the demo files i played some time ago there was a Real Track used that sounded great. For some reason i can't recall the demo although i vaguely remember the Real Tracks number that was used. Also i did not set it as a favorite real track. If i know or have an idea of the or a real track number or within a range how do i get RealTracks picker to find it for me ?
