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,
Noel

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.

I love the blues and you more than did them justice here.

Excellent!

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

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training!

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

New to Band-in-a-Box®? Beginners Forum Available!

Launched last year, our Beginners Forum is a great place for new users to post their questions - there are more than 250 threads so far!

So... if you're new to Band-in-a-Box, feel free to join our forum to talk to fellow program users! Of course, you can always contact us directly with any questions you may have!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!

User Post - Save as Video

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

Forum user JoanneCooper has just shared her Band-in-a-Box video using this feature! Check out her post here, or click here watch her YouTube video.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
