Playing in bands is overrated. They show up late or not at all, and when they do they always argue about something or other. ☹️ Having BIAB as your backup band is wonderful. No arguments, no complaints, no dilution of earnings. You are in complete control.

I use QSC K series, 12” woofer and tweeter. 34 lbs. about $800 if I recall. Plays BIAB nicely. Doesn’t need a subwoofer - plenty of bass.

I'm betting they sound just fine, Bud. The waves I produce look similar, i.e., not too compressed. The LUFS movement got started to put an end to the loudness wars, which as you know was all about compressing the crap out of your track so that it would sound as loud as possible. It is the overly compressed tracks that now sound like crap when that playback auto gain offset is applied by spotify and iTunes, etc. That is talked about in the second video Tony posted.

Yes, that would be another (possibly even better) way. +1

Thanks Noel for the even better approach. Your illustration and reference is appreciated. Time is pretty tight at the moment for me. That should get the O/P sorted hopefully. Thanks again Trev

I bought several of his books when I was young. I've played so many songs and loved his open tunings, but I was always to lazy to learn them off by heart. I just played the tab. Great fun though. Maybe one day....

Mark, your are right, _eleven.sty is part of StylePak Xtra1 (Rock-Pop 1) and _twelve.sty is contained in Xtra2 (Rock-Pop2). _VigilNt.sty is part of Xtra5 (Rock-Pop5). All are available here in PGMusics online shop. Also interesting could be _stepups.sty, _tblrkst.sty, _rkblues.sty and _drivesx.sty, all containg Sax-Soloing. None of them perfectly matches Samanthas song, but should do fine for practicing. These are links to sound samples which I rendered over G minor7 at 125 bpm. Gminor7 in _e

Jump to new posts Re: The Story of Bohemian Rhapsody by rayc @ Yesterday at 04:08 AM

I saw Queen in 76 - the NOTOpera tour. The ticket was AUS6.50. I had a 12 hr each way train trip to get to the gig. They could only do bits of it this song live, (oddly an Oz band called Chariot were playing the entire things live & very well I'm reliably informed). These days I only listen to the 1st three Queen albums. I do have ANATO on LP, CD & 5.1 DVD but much of it is an embarrassment these days. I do like the rockier tracks and the rockier parts of BoRap but the tweeness of the r

I tried out sForzando, latest version, with the Heaven GM fonts; couldn't get it to work properly. Same with Sampletank, and the Omnisynth GM set, bought versions. Too much hassles to get going. XGlite works quite well, though you'll need the installation PAT file from Mike to adress the sounds via BIABs dropdown track menus. Best alternative IMO is the free Halion Sonic SE 3, or the older Hypersonic2 from Steinberg. (The latter is licensed, alas not available anymore, but as it's outdated as

Well, that was unusual. Actually, it wasn't. It was a great pop rendition. Enjoyed that a lot, David.
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

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 "".

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
