I recently have posted some older tracks but this one is fresh. I feel the RealDrums in the BIAB program are the best sounding drums one can use in their project!(For me at least) They alone are worth the price of admission! For this track I used only RealDrums from the program and played all the other instruments myself. This is a Blues/Rock track that deals with some heavy subject matter, but was inspired to put together over the last couple of weeks. Lyrics are in YouTube video. Thanks in advance for listening and may God bless! Torrey

Torrey,

This is really well done.

Impressive that you did all the parts yourself.

Cool opening. Nice guitar work. Cool "figure" at 1:00... had a sorta YES feel... the guitar at 1:40 is exceptional! - all the fills after that are, too...

Nice mix. Everything works. Nice stuff in that bridge...

An excellent piece of music!

Excellent piece of music - reminds me of recent Clapton.
Really strong songwriting and great musicianship all round.
Nice vocal effect on the slow part.

Hi Torrey,

Well, Rob has something to say about this:
Such a cool video, you sure have many talents wink

The sound reminds us very much of Donald Fagen (but we think we said that once before).
And that sure is a compliment!

We think Floyd summed this up pretty good. We watched the YouTube movie ... totally cool and exceptional. You are a gifted player, writer and arranger with terrific technical skills. Congrats on a steallar project. We loved it - and that's the truth! Standing "O"!

Torrey, and exceptional write.

This has a sensational feel, it is vibrant, and musically incredibly strong.

The vocals and harmonies are not any less than absolutely excellent, and clearly a fantastic musical contribution with your instrumentation works.

This song has it all.

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.
