hi again,
I started doing a collaboration, with sweet lady d, she's retired singer. I put as a song in SoundCloud " I am stuck for vocals, collaboration wanted "as my song title.

sweet lady D sings on her phone and she sent me 3 files her singing over my song. She could sing any lyrics or melody she wanted. and this is what she did for my music.

I used Andy GP.sty, Elecrock.sty ,Eletam.sty... and mixed the guitars & bass. I added my own custom piano, which over rides the background music to harmony.

this was the most fun I've had doing a collaboration with another artist I never met... I hope you like it.~ LPM

Thanks Pat for your post,
yup you have to remove noise from the background that her phone picks up... she's a night owl so there's not that much noise. She brought some warmth I didn't expect to the song.

For the most part, I think the music/melody works. There are some odd things going on harmonically at some points. Lyrics are hard to understand at times, but the melody is catchy. Interesting idea! (the phone collab). Keep posting! Take care. Greg

hi Greg thanks for your post,

the plan was that after she did her singing.... unfinished piano phrases, would be completed. it's a little bit like the piano players being hit by a peashooter.... and stops playing to see who hit him.

the recording file she sent to me, which she made on her phone, were turned into sliced vocal snippets...

I had to leave gaps in the piano phrases so the vocal melody could be applied without being constrained too much. You got a good ear Greg. Thanks for being honest I appreciate that.

I agree it's not truely a finished polished product... but I did get an education on applying foreign vocal ideas through our collaboration. ~ LPM

A phone collab? No, certainly not a polished
production but a very interesting and fun to
listen to concept.

Kinda like the dog that talked -- doesn't matter
what he said just the fact that he could talk!

This has gotta be a one of a kind. Enjoyed
it.

"Vocals by phone!" now THAT is a really of the wall idea!

Interesting concept, I really look forward to how this develops.

Gibson.... the song was originally written in a slower tempo... I would have to take her voice and slow it down to the original tempo. To make the adjustments on my keyboard.... sweet ladyD is happy with the results. I would probably have to get a better less noisy, vocal track. which I don't think is going to happen.....

hi MikeK,

sweet ladyD..... says she's the only person she ever heard of, who sings on a phone.... as a way of collaborating...


first track she made for my song... about half her vocals was used..... I showed her what I did with her vocal track. .. as she was listening to the updated track on her headphones.... she sang and talked between her previous vocals...

writing a song this way.. is little bit strange.... it's like another person jumping into your body and writing this song how they see fit.... it seemed a better idea than just shelving it.

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Forum thread: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=467504

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
