The Unforgettable Night

I guess it's a universal experience that you have had an unforgettable night but when you wake up, you just can't remember what on earth happened crazy . This is a story about such a night. This song is my latest collaboration with Miira, we wrote the song together, I took care of the arrangement with BIAB and Miira sang her funky vocals.

BIAB has very good selection of funky realstyles, so I have combined several of them together and then added some other RTs for extra spice.

Loops:
Chillout_teardrops_79dminor
DirtySouth_layback_91

RealDrums:
NewOrleansMardiGras
RumbaPerc

RealTracks:
Acoustic Piano #2811
Electric Piano #2155
Electric Guitar #1637, #1638
Horns #2291, #2343
Organ #2619
Sax Tenor #1643
Synth Bass #2580

Vocals: Miira
Other voices: Janne

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017.

Lyrics:

The night was hot
that's why we got
more than enough to drink.
Swiping plastic
so orgastic
we just let it sink.
All was well
when we left the base
the same old story, hangover case.
The terrace closed
we crawled around
somehow the hotel was not found.

Found ourselves
in the rabbit hole
It surely freed my tortured soul.
I hurt my head
on the concrete bed
tender purring, no words were said
Fallen angels
a daring kiss
squeezed into the sinful bliss.
Knuckles with blood
your broken tooth
maybe my touch was not so smooth.

We can barely remember
what or where was our goal
still backtracking the path
to our rabbit hole.
white lies for those who might ask
the truth will stay behind the mask
I guess we will never know
but it must have been a hell of a rodeo.

The purse was lost
by the motorway
later an Arab saved the day.
Rolling down
in the grass
a story written on my a**.
Shambling streets
seven miles
two adults drunk like juveniles.
Bruises tell
the strangest tale
eye-witnessed by a nightingale.

[Chorus]

(Abducted by the UFOs
or delirium, god only knows)

[Chorus]

We are filling the blanks
where the mind wasn't bright
isn't it ironic
we call it the unforgettable night.

Nice production. A lot of fun vocal effects going along with the lyrics.

This is a witty write and the vocals are good throughout. Enjoyed this.

Nice work, jannesan - as others mentioned, this one is quite "outside the box" if you will! Nice to hear some RealTracks getting use that you don't hear too often. Thanks for sharing!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
