Comfort

This simple song was made as a musical comfort for a friend. Dreams and reality do not always meet, but comfort can be shared in low doses. After a long time I had a song which was perfect for RnAM to sing. And once again they did excellent work.

RealDrums: NashvillePop16

RealTracks:
Acoustic Guitar #1595, #1676
Nylon Guitar #2200
Pedal Steel #2667
Electric Bass #1036
Electric Piano #910
Sax Soprano #1061
String Quartet #2335

Vocals: RnAM

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017. Mixing with vocals by RnAM

Lyrics:

I have seen your prison cell
but don't have tools to cut your ropes
you have seen the freedom I have
but I don't want to awake any false hopes
you need to find your way out
you can do it, no doubt
but if you get lost
I'll be there healing wings of your dreams.

I can't build you a home in the woods
I can't give you a life in a rich neighborhood
can't get you a speed boat, or a fancy car
I can't take you to Venus or Mars
but I can give you a glimpse of the stars
chords from my heart
I can give you comfort.

You told me about your grief
I've tried my best to empathize
but I can't be the savior you need
it took me too long to realize.
Just find a moment, time to mourn
find the reason for each thorn
and when you get up
I'll be there spreading balm to your wounds.

[Chorus]

If you feel lonely in the middle of the crowd
or if you feel cast-off under a rainy cloud
if you still want to meet me at the coffee bar
I let you be the center star.

[Chorus]

What a great collaboration. This is a really beautiful melody, and delivered with marvelous vocals.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

It was a pleasure to work with Janne again on one of his (relatively simpler ;-))songs.
This one in particular was very melodic, we love the vocal melody.
The song has a very nice dreamy atmosphere.

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie for your excellent work once more. Always nice to work with you and good that you also liked the song and the melody, so the working was probably not so unpleasant wink Yes, this one was simpler, do you want more challenging next time? wink

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Version 11 for Mac!

Band-in-a-Box® Version 11 for Mac was released in the Fall of 2002! Some of the new features added at that time included:

MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard
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 to the Band-in-a-Box® chordsheet like any other song.

Guitar Styles
These are styles that show strummed and picked guitar parts accurately on the guitar fretboard (and they sound great). These styles also play accurate guitar voicings, in your choice of Pop, Jazz, Country or Folk guitar chording. There's even a “walking guitar comping” style that plays guitar that emulates the famous “Basie Big Band” Jazz style. The Guitar Styles play like any regular style, and when you view them on the virtual guitar fretboard you can see exactly which strings and frets are used – so it is a great learning tool as well.

Guitar Tutor
Analyze any song! This feature will show the chords that are playing on the virtual guitar fretboard, in your choice of a Jazz, Pop, or Folk perspective. The Guitar Tutor is a fun way to learn about new guitar chords while playing along with your favorite Band-in-a-Box® tune.

...and more! For a complete list of the features added with Band-in-a-Box® Version, visit http://www.pgmusic.com/pdfs/bbmac_version_11.pdf

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Video: Exporting Audio Files in Band-in-a-Box® 2018

Our latest video, Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - Exporting Audio Files Tutorial walks you through the different options to export your Band-in-a-Box® songs and song tracks from Band-in-a-Box® as an audio file (WAV, MP3, etc.)!
