Hi Alyn, Joanne and Peter,

what a great collab! A very interesting topic.
The music transports that "rhythmic danger" very well.
Very interesting arrangement. Liked the vocals and the background vocals.

Thanks for listening and the praise.
As I wrote in my reply to floyd I used snippets from them all as samples, only a few ran continuously. I just sorta got carried away grin

Thanks Peter,
You mentioned the 2 parts that were time consuming, going through the harmonica RT to get the rhythm right drove me mad!
I practice singing every song I do as I write them in BIAB so I soon noticed the bits that needed to be worked on. The hard part with the words was not tripping up on them.

Thanks for listening

Train surfing cetainly beats the British sport of folding neatly one's copy of the Financial Times, looking at one's watch and tutting when the train is yet again delayed because of the "wrong type of rain" grin

glad you enjoyed

Hi Alyn,

I really like what you've done with Peter's poem. It's excellent. The phrase 'hiphip alla gibson' springs to mind smile Hmm... that looks good in the instruction area above the stave. There's nothing like a bit of Italian music terminology to add a touch of class...



Seriously, though, you and Joanne have done a really awesome job with this audio and video. Top notch all the way!

All the best,
Noel

An interesting subject to write a song about. Both the music and the lyric had a "dangerous train" kind of feel to them.

Alyn - I don't think you used enough RealTracks... nice job on the vocal! All mixed together well...

The BGVs were cool!

Cool stuff.

floytd


Yeah, I'm down with floyd...that paucity of tracks is really notable smile

Y'all have fertile imaginations that go waaaaaaay beyond my more pedestrian approach to writing.

Other than the aforementioned virtual lack of RT's we most enjoyed this entire production
including the video. Again, as mr jane alluded to .... dark and scary.

Assuredly interesting and enjoyable!

Cheers Rob,

Not too sure what you mean by Trex. I assume you mean Marc Bolan not the largest land carnivore of all time, so I take that as a compliment, Thanks grin

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.
