Hi all, here is another song written by Marinus and recorded by me. Most of the tracks are from Band in A Box but are all midi as real tracks weren't available at the time. The strings pads I think were played by me. The vocal is my nephew Kenny Driscoll who also did the harmonies and a bit of live piano. Song is about a roadie who worked for a band and fell in love with a girl from Jamestown NY during a one night stand. Gosh how often did that happen????. Hope you enjoy this and any comments are most welcome

Kenny has a beautiful voice. I would've mixed the harmonies just a little bit lower volume wise in the mix.

Still a really nice sound.

Enjoyed it.

Thanks Josie,Tommy and Steve for the comments. Josie I agree about the harmony, unfortunately the recorder used to record this is gone and along with it were the master tracks so it will have to stay the way it is. Thanks for listening.

Cheers

Nelson and Marinus

+1 here.

I would love to hear a remix with realtracks, especially drums. But this is a top notch performance.

Da kid can SANG!

I agree, would loved to have heard this with real tracks and not midi, and a whole lot less reverb of the vox.

User Tip - Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)

#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!

#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.
