Jump to new posts i hung my head - sting by fiddler2007 @ Yesterday at 10:29 AM

As i made a midi backing track of it for someone, i am now kind of curious how one can make a style/song MGU version of Sting's fab country ballad in BIAB ... and i really don't mean that simplified Johnny Cash version. Thus in it's 5/4 or 9/8 beat. Using BIAB 2017 i couldn't do it easily as i hoped, but had to use Cubase to get it sort of right. -F

Greetings, I am using Sibelius 7 playing scores through the Mobile studio canvas SD-50. PC running Windows 7. On my old PC (dear old XP) I could use a sound set so that when, in Sibelius, I chose an instrument on the stave, when I played the score it would send all the relevant midi information to my sound module (an older sound canvas) so that all the score played with all the correct instruments. Can anyone help please with getting a sound set for windows7 so that when I play a score in Sibel

Jump to new posts where have my drum grid files gone? by Bob Calver @ 08/19/17 06:38 AM

I'm trying to load patterns on to my Alesis SR16 drum machine and so far midi out and recording pt drum outputs is failing. so i want to load files manually and as i like the patterns in BIAB and PT I thought I'd load dg files and then print out the patterns to load onto the SR 16. But I seem to have only a few dg patterns - unless I'm looking in the wrong place. to make new dg patterns from patterns in PT do i just highlight two bars and save scrap as a dg file?

Jump to new posts Nashville meets Hollywood by edshaw @ 08/17/17 11:35 AM

Using the Nashville Demo method, that is, a Fender Amp and a microphone on the kitchen table, and the Hollywood editing standard: (1) Create the content with reasonable number of takes. Three WAV files of two 03:00 takes will work. Keep notes. (2) Upload each two-take file to its own timeline on the editor. Insert three empty audio tracks as working timelines. These are the A, B, and C tracks. (3)Depending on whether your program uses explorer or media asset bins, create the folders to store

Songwriting
Lorenz Hart (1895-1943) was a highly skilled lyricist. His words for "Mountain Greenery" contain some of the most inventive rhymes I've come across. If anyone is interested in what advanced lyric rhyming looks like, these lyrics are worthwhile studying. What is especially clever is how Hart has used the poetic device of ‘enjambment’, where the end of one phrase joins with the beginning of the next phrase, to create some of his rhymes. This is not often encountered in lyrics. (I've
