Hey 90dB

Wow!!! This is truly exceptional. Great songwriting, great arrangement and excellent production. Everything worked for me. This sound is professional all the way. You've got my standing ovation.

All the best,

Great song Robert! Loved the lyrics, changes and your excellent voice.

I'd be interested in some information on the recording especially: is that you playing the guitar leads? Some cool stuff there!

Mix-wise for me the voice is too prominent compared with the other instruments so it sounds separate, especially as its reverb is different. The lead guitar is a main feature (occupying the same if not more time than the vocal) and yet stays in the background.

A haunting and catchy song though, thanks for bringing it to us!

John

Hi 90 db,

Very good song you have here.

Really enjoyed it. Sounded very professional.

Well done.

Give us a clue as to the Real Tracks you used please.

Best regards
George

Noel,

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for the help with BIAB.



Skyline,

Ditto. Except for the vocal, the entire thing is BIAB/RB. As for the mix, I really didn't spend too much time on it - this is just a songwriting demo I'm pitching to a guy, so the vocal was the most important thing.


George,

I'll have to look up the RB tracks that were used. They were just default tracks, nothing special.

These programs are a blast.

Thanks for listening.



Bob

That is certainly an understatement.

Now here you nailed it.



Great job on the vocals. It does sound like you are having fun.

Oh, by the way, how do you song writers handle it when you song title matchs an existing classic?

As to your first comment: I have been using the program for about a month. I apologize if the production lacks the sophistication you obviously possess.




As for the song title that 'matchs' an existing classic, I assume you are referring to Clapton's title. You might, perhaps, be referring to one of these others:







This is just a partial list. There are 237 songs titled "Bad Love", and this only includes songs copyrighted after 1978.




Thanks for the enlightened comment though.

I sense a little attitude, my apologies if I offended, certainly not my intention at all.

My mistake. You obviously meant that comment to be complimentary.

Ya, I was trying to convey how nice it all sounded. Darn short cryptic comments - sometimes they just mess us up in these forums.

Glad we got that squared away. All is good. Thanks.

Thanks Mario. Every time I write a blues, I ask myself "Can Blue men sing the Whites?"

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.
