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.

#TBT - The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

Travel back in time to December 2001, and the release of Band-in-a-Box 11 for Windows... which included the new feature The MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard!

This new feature was described as:
Many people who play music by ear think of songs in terms of “Chords and Melody.” However many MIDI files lack chord symbols, so they become difficult to learn without the user having to figure out the chords in a time consuming process. Now you can open up any MIDI file in Band-in-a-Box, and Band-in-a-Box will automatically figure out the chords of the song for you. It automatically analyzes the MIDI file, figures out where the bass, piano, melody and other tracks are, and then figures out the chord changes for the song. The chords are written onto the Band-in-a-Box chordsheet like any other song. This allows you to quickly learn how to play a song from a MIDI file - just read it into Band-in-a-Box and you’ll see the chord symbols, and then learn the Melody! You can also read tracks into the Melody and Soloist tracks.

If you're interested in reading about all the features released with Band-in-a-Box 11, visit this page. Other new features added with this version back in 2001 include Jazz Music Fonts for Notes, Symbols, Chords & Titles, Multiple Tracks of Notation, "Direct-to-Disk Audio Rendering, and more!

Introducing The Band-in-a-Box Keychain!

For just $5 you can add your very own Band-in-a-Box keychain to any order you place with us!

When placing an order for any item on our website, our shopping cart will offer to add this item to your shipment.

You can also purchase it on its own, here: www.pgmusic.com/bb_keychain.htm
