This is a song I wrote and recorded using several Real Tracks from various styles and added my voice and guitar with some additional synth parts and added effects. I feel that mixing tracks from different styles can sometimes produce good results. This is a song about making the wrong choice and having to live with the regret. Thanks for listening. Torrey.

Hi Torrey!

I like this! The guitar parts you added help to establish a signature theme for the song. I also like the synth... it really adds a smoothness to the song that makes it easy to listen to.

I also liked the drum intro. There were a couple of times when the drums seemed a bit busy. Of all the song styles, I think this is one of my favorites... the 70s ballad. Good job!

Torrey

A great feel and sound. Enjoyed the vocals, and the lyrics and melody work so really well together.

You've put together a great number here.

I noted a similar singing style to forum member Greg Johnson, who always delivers excellent material.

Thanks for sharing. Nice job all 'round.

I'm going back for another listen.

Trev

I love this! I will have to try mixing styles. This is exactly the feel and mood for which I was searching on a song of mine. Your mix, vocal and lyric are just great. Good job and thanks for sharing.

Torrey,
Good choice of Realtracks in the mix
It's def. a nice ballad - the little guitar theme is good but does feel incomplete yet quite familiar though it fleshes out nicely in the solo.
Mixwise I think the bass is a little too woolly. It could use a cut in the low mids or something like the Stanford bass tightener - https://www.kvraudio.com/product/sanford-bass-tightener-by-sanford-sound-design
Cool song and recording

Great stuff Torrey!! Reminds me of the late 70's or thereabouts, one of my favorite musical periods. Great job with everything-arrangement, mix, and vocals. This is the kind of song I'd like to start a road trip with-breezy, inspiring, and just darn pleasant to listen to. As I said, Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

#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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
