Hi Frank,

I really liked this! As soon as I started listening to it, it was like I was transported back in time to the 1920s/30s. Very authentic sounding to my ears. I'm not sure that I'd have tried the sax hard left but it worked in this piece.

All the best,

Its amazing to me the sounds the PG has allowed us to use
with the Realtracks.
As for the panning will check a bit later. Using internals as
melody/solo, I sometimes force bit of panning, but don't want the
performer to fall off the left side of the stage. May have left
default pan for the Sax in place. Will be more aware on next arrangement.

In the heat of the battle I left the default panning in place. -30 is bit much.
Would have set this to -10 or -15, depending on the sound. Will pay closer
attention next go round.

I usually put a song aside for awhile, then go back and listen.
You get too close to a piece when working on it.

I also like the Vintage or older Jazz styles better.

Thanks for your compliments!

Frank, this is super! Loved it.

Two thumbs up.
Yesterday I walked into a room and remembered why I was there! It was the bathroom!

Very nice. It would have been even cooler with some 20s sytle megaphone vocals. Nice use of BIAB.

Nice, even without the bourbon.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Floyd, Mario,

Thanks for the compliments.


Ya... I agree, but my voice is only passable, and need few weeks of
practice,practice practice before adding vocals. One of our members did a song few weeks
ago with "vocals of that age".
Thanks for comments.


There was a day when bourbon would have been a part of my day, but
after many years ago, it walked away from me...

Thank you for nice comment.

Nice, easy, deserves a vocal! It's too nice a groove not to have some kind of lyric to it...however, very enjoyable.

This is very nice and smooth! Like Noel said, it takes me back to the 20's/30's (not that I've ever actually been there! ).

I really enjoyed this!

Would be great icing, except if mine....??????
Thanks for compliments.


The vintage and old styles contribute nicely to the smooth aspects, but the
real stars are the RealTracks. The BIAB and RB software with RT'S are such a joy.

Thanks for nice comments.

Mootsman and John,

Thanks to both of you.

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: - 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.
