OK, here is my entry.....Lovely Mystery


https://soundcloud.com/oim-review-tracks/lovely-mystery-sept-2016-ttm-odc-smurf



The style used is _BADLAND.STY Badland Baritone Rockabilly - 100bpm A (F#m) from the Country Xtra PAK


I kept the main chord structure with some rearranging becasue I liked it. After setting everything to gen simply, I re-gen the tracks until I was happy, then exported the individual tracks out to the daw. and added guitars & vocals. Lyrics are below...

=====

Lovely Mystery J. Smerk 9-12-16


She likes holiday bustling, he likes serene
She likes being around crowds, he avoids the scene
She likes 5 course dinners, just a happy meal for me please

She likes to drive Cadillacs, he's happy with a truck
She likes board games, he likes to try his luck
She likes to hear the violin, while he plays the fiddle
(It's such a riddle)

Chorus 1

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
Kids & homes & family mess, with the memories that they bring
Of pain & loss & the joy, that makes their hearts sing

She likes to go shopping, for him its such a bore
She likes yachts & boating, he likes to row his own
She likes hand dipped ice cream, he takes the gallon home
(But I never eat alone)

Repeat Chorus 1

She likes to babble on, he says a word or two
She does 5 things at a time, he'll see one project thru
She dresses up the dog, while he cleans up the poo
(Or it gets on your shoe)

Chorus 2

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
But when the lights go down, these two people can agree
The differences are minor, to the love that's shared between


Enjoy! cool

Hey, I enjoyed this! The lyrics are well put together and the delivery spot on.
It kinda reminds me of REM in places.

Also liked the additional voice effect at the end of each verse sort of like a "thought bubble".

Cheers

I agree with Receder on the REM sound. I'm a big fan of REM.
So yes, like this song too!

Thanks once again folks! I have had a few folks say that I remind them of REM....I guess I need to go give them a good listen to.

And I THINK that I have made it thru all the entries.....and I can honestly say that I am happy that I am not the one that has to do the selection, there are some great tunes here!

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

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
