The original mix of this song was created purely with keyboard simulating the sound of various instruments. I like the arrangement but it sound so artificial. I bought BIAB a month ago and tried improving the mix and I really love it, given that the instruments used are real!!! Below is the link: https://soundcloud.com/froilan-g-villegas/pain-remixed Here are the details of the track: Guitar 1: ~~543:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dreamy Ev 120 Guitar 2: ~~522:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 1

Jump to new posts No Name File by Scott Brooks @ Yesterday at 11:54 AM

After installing BIaB for Mac 2017, I was unable to save files. My file names all became "No Name File" no matter what action I took in saving them. After calling support I was told to download build 171 which said in the notes that it fixed this issue. But, I still have a problem. Now the file name is good (like I named it) but when I press the "Save" button, a "Save As" dialog box opens like asking me to name and save the file instead of just saving it.

Hallo! Man glaubt, es mit einem Anfängerfehler zu tun zu haben; aber? Ich habe einen Song kreiert, in dem unter Melodie ein einstimmiges Drum-Motiv implendiert ist. Es ist ein Übungstück, das in jeweils 2x2 Takten anfangs ein Drum-Motiv enthält, das zur weiteren Improvisationsübung im Song dienen soll. Ich hätte dazu gerne den Sound Woodblock verwendet. Es wird aber immer eine geschl. HH gespielt. Der Name Woodblock wird angezeigt, erscheint auch in den Patches usw. Ich finde leider keinen

Jump to new posts A couple questions on rendering the RealTrack by macmac @ 04/25/17 02:30 PM

1) When I drag drop the track to render to audio, it always puts SingleRender_DragDrop in the filename that I later remove so that the file name is not so long when put into the DAW. I've searched around for a setting for file name structure, but don't see one anywhere. It's not a big deal to manually remove this text, but if there is a setting to eliminate this, it would be nice. 2) Under the .WAV dropdown icon where it says "Render track to audio (AIFF, M4A, WAV) with Options)" the

The Alesis manual is pretty unhelpful and the Alesis forum not as good as this one. Bearing in mind that the SR16 is an old and ubiquitous piece of kit I thought forum members might be able to help. I like some of the dg files I can load into PT's drum grid more than the Alesis presets. It would be great if I could produce a two bar midi file and send it to the Alesis and save as a user preset. Has anyone done that?

Jump to new posts Converting MP3 by Bernier @ 04/22/17 11:45 AM

If I open PT and import an MP3, highlight the track, right click on the track header, then choose save as wav, etc. I get a message that the file was saved successfully. I then get an ASIO error and have to reboot. Also, the file I saved is nowhere to be found. When I first convert the MP3 file to wav, then import it into PT, the above procedure works fine. Apparently PT does not like MP3 Opinions? Thanks - Bernie

Hola. Me gustaría saber qué tengo que hacer para realizar una canción que comienza en anacrusa. Quiero que los cliks que marcan la entrada a la canción indiquen dicha entrada de forma correcta.

Every year I shell out the cash to get the Audiophile edition of BIAB because I want the best quaily version and all the real tracks. Have the Audiophile editions have been worth the money each year, and I do not have to download all the files onto my computer, which save me tons of space, and keep my files secure because they are stored onto the hard drive.

A member of one of my songwriting groups has a friend who is with WHUR radio in Washington and the Smithsonian.
