Pass Me Not O' Gentle Saviour

1.Band in Box Slow Country Swing (100 Cmaj 4/4)
2.Replace drum track with Nashville Brushes
3.Render individual tracks and import to Sony Acid Studio
4.Extensive use of erase tool to eliminate 4 kick
and some guitar and some strings parts.

Probably #4 was the innovation or learning part for
me. This resulted from a comment on the forum to use the
DAW for dynamic improvements. Left to themselves, the
members of the band each play non stop solos. Individual
volume adjustments are tedious.

We just sang this song in church yesterday (I'm the choir and music director), so was cool to see it posted here.

Thanks!

Liked you web site a lot., John.
Thanks, John. Yes, timeless hymn from the late 1800's.
Fanny Crosby wrote something like, what, 3,000 hymns?
Working on laying in guitar and voice track, today. Thx, again. (ed)

Nicely put together, Ed. A good mix, a nice backing track.

Good job of "paring down" the drum track for this application.

Thanks Floyd, for the listen and comment.
That drum work resulted from a suggestion made by Greg that
added dynamics and sophistication to the drum track.
The Nashville brushes seems to fit the style. I used the
eraser in SONY Acid, just going along listening to the track
and zapping every wave form that drew attention to itself.
Didn't take long. Opens up a new vista. (ed)

Nice and mellow production.
There is a treasure trove in the PD, indeed.

Enjoyed it!

Hi Ed,

You have discovered another great PD song and created a soothing instrumental version.

It will be good to hear your updated version with vocals.

All the best,
Rec

Thanks, Scott, J&B, and Rec. Those kind words encourage.
Yes, the PD is a treasure trove. I'm not promoting web sites, but
when I found the nice folks at pdinfo dot com I was able to order
for a couple of dollars original reprints of the sheet music pre 1920.
In case of question, it helps to have "the sheet music that was
worked from" on hand.
That said, some of my favorite artists who made extensive use of PD have been Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and The Grateful Dead. What do they have in common? Each will take an old song and work with it until it sounds new.
Obviously, talents of Willie and Jerry are rare, but I am thinking of a song like "Casy Jones" or "Roll Away the Dew," the same but different.
Come to think about it, the great era of Blues is coming on to the PD.
So many tunes, so little time. Thx again. (ed)

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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.
