Very nice. The mix sounds great on my KRK's and the guitar work is stellar.

Welcome again Al!

Love everything about this track especially your guitar playing. But I must ad, and not that is will not stand on it's own, but this great melody is "crying" for a lyric.

Merry Christmas,

Danny,

We appreciate those kind words about the song. And yes, we've been told the same thing on a couple of other places we have posted this. If we don't come up with something lyrically, we're open to a collab! Thanks again...

Al here. Here is the info on the BIAB trax and my equipment settings:

MIDI 39/1 Synth Bass (warm)
MIDI Rhodes Electric Piano (5)
MIDI 54/1 Humming,
MIDI Drums Standard Drum Kit (1)
RealTracks Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dreamy Ev 120
RealTracks Sax, Alto, Soloist JazzFunkGroovin Ev16 110

I am playing an Ibanez ARZ 400 Guitar thru a Peavey Nashville 112 Amp.

The distortion pedal is an el cheapo I bought locally for $39.00 - brand name is "Fab" but no model designation.

I am playing on the bridge P/U, tone about 75% treble and volume about 60% (the pickups are very hot)

The amp is set as follows:

Pre-Gain: 4
Low (Bass): +3
Mid: +6
Shift: 350
High (Treble) +4
Presence: +6
Master Reverb: 4 1/2
Master Gain: 5

The distortion pedal is set as follows (There are no numbers on the setting so I am indicating the percentage effect for each of the 3 settings:

Level: 50%
Tone: 75%
Distortion: 40%

Those setting may not be exact but are real close...it's been well over a year!

Hope that helps anyone who might be interested. And thanks again to everyone for your interests in our music.

Al & Di

Nice work Al, anything that smacks of Sade does it for me, I simply love those grooves. ('Smooth Operator' is the first song in my band's first set.)

Your guitar work is just right and fits beautifully. A smooth production all round, very enjoyable. Please come again and bring more musical gifts like this!
cool

John,


Thanks a bunch! And yes, my wife loves to swing "Smooth Operator". We have a cut of it somewhere but we're not using BIAB trax so I doubt it's appropriate to post a link to it here. I believe this forum is only for links to songs containing at least a few BIAB trax.

We certainly appreciate your kind words. love your screen name, too!

Merry Christmas!

Al & Di

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
