This song contains only 1 real track #364 Acoustic Guitar. I then took the left side of stereo guitar and deleted the right and vice versa. I then put it in DAW to create the stereo. If you have the capibility to do this try it you will be amazed at the difference. I probably should have panned the guitar a little further apart, and might have gotten them lined up better volume wise but you have to move with the 5090 challenge. I hope you will give any tips and suggestions so I can try and incorporate once the challenge is over. Thanks!

I really like the guitar but I am not sure exactly what you did. I'll play around with it. BIAB is really a great tool that can be used in so many ways.

Nice song.

Poster: jptjptjpt I really like the guitar but I am not sure exactly what you did.

Response: As you know when you make a wave file of the instruments from band in a box they are in stereo. This is a neat trick my father in law taught me. I took the stereo guitar and high lited only the left side and deleted it; I saved this file as finger picking acoustic right. I then reloaded the original stereo guitar again and highlited only the right side of the file and deleted it. This was saved as Finger Picking acoustic left. That way when you load into your daw you have both sides seperate. Listen to them seperate and you will see a huge difference from having both side together. I think this trick would really make a huge difference in a multiple instrument mix, for example take and load the left side of the guitar track on one track and then the right side of a piano track and notice how clean it is and notice the seperation you get. I hope this helps.

Are you sure you're not John Starnes in disguise (Closer Than A Heartbeat, Holy Ghost Do It Again, etc.)? I love your voice and your dedication to your beliefs come across loud and strong in your words and music. Nice job!

PgF,
Nice work on these songs. Good luck in the 50/90 Challenge! I hope someday I have 50 written, never mind the 90 day part!
Regarding the stereo track splitting effect, It really makes a great improvement. There is a function in the RB track menu that does this automatically. Have you tried it? Might save some effort.

This is my 7th 5090 challenge song. The vocal is uneven, I am going to have to work on that later. The reason was I had to break the vocal between chorus and verse because of the difference in eq to make them go through the mix. All feed back is welcome.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
