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

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm

RealBand® 2018 for Windows Build 3 Update Available!

RealBand 2018 users can update their version with the latest patch, Build 3. Download this patch here

Summary of Changes since 2018 Build 3:

Added: Section Numbers supported. All section letter menus now include numbers 1 through 9 in addition to letters A through Z.
Fixed: Section letters in Notation Window were not being resized if the notation was zoomed in/out
Fixed: RealBand might freeze when generating audio harmonies
Fixed: Loading in a BB song (MGU/SGU) or generating realtracks could freeze up the program.
Fixed: Chords in Notation/LeadSheet on 1st beat of a bar were being drawn too close to bar lines.
Fixed: Support for XP and Vista.
