http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mlkNlKgOsQ

New Soundcloud file:

http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/funky-song-bass-volume

Have a nice funky day all of you !!:))


Cheers
Dani

The style is Fusion shuffle 2 and recorded through zoom H4n to mixcraft 6
And the lyrics to this experimental tune:

FUNKY SONG (Music and words by Dani)

Song,
I´m gonna write a song
a funky song to go with you along
to put a smile on every face
just listen to the beat of the base
with a funky song, you can´t go wrong
and if you don´t share my view
I´m gonna rest my case

Well,
I´m gonna do it well
what I´ll do is not for me to tell
but I will use every trick of course
and bring it all home with a force
and I don´t care a darn too
if it´s extremely hard for me to sell

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Where,
will I be goin´ from here
there or here or even everywhere
I don´t know where I´m goin´ today
It maybe clears up during the day
and if you don´t hear from me
I´ll be having some fun
with my funk to share

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Oh,
I think it´s time to go
but I hope the show has had the kind of flow
that you connect with this funky ol´ style
so get your kicks and dig for a while
as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know
Time for me to go……fade away

Hi Dani.

Another song and another chance to show just how versatile you are. From the title, I was expecting the Average White Band, but ended up with Al Jarreau!

Lovely smooth jazz-funk production, just as professional as ever.

Can't wait to see what you do next.

ROG.

Cool!! Do you just use the harmony generator to generate the female version?

Dear Jo !

As I am actually a second base
I use my falsetto for the "female" upper voices !
You may know that all male barbershop tenors
use falsetto as it would be absolutely impossible to
reach as high notes as is required by the arrangements
without using falsetto. To my own surprise I have
found out that many bases have very good falsettos and
then there are those guys like Tim Waurick who can sing
9 octaves !! (check him out on utube) !!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

A song about writing a song. Very clever.
Loved the line "so get your kicks and dig for a while as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know."

I liked the way you put the tracks together, the vox and sweet harmonies too. It has a cool uplifting aura.

Enjoyed it very much.

Hi, Josie !

Thank you for your kind comments
very much appreciated ! I have
always liked this type of music

The lyrics are always difficult
for me, but I feel honoured for
your kind remarks on them too !

Hi, Guenter ! smile

Thank you for our kind comments !
Yes, (lol) I guess you are right
in the sense that I can sing bass
and tenor, but the middle range
voices are the most difficult
for me ! smile Yes,I grew up with
The BB:s music running in my ears (Lol) !

Cheers
Dani

#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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
