experimental to me usually means not very catchy or entertaining

but this is both

interesting lyrics and melody

The choir is terrific.

The mix is excellent.

Y'all deserve a big WOW! on this...

Floyd,
Thank you for that... for myself I wasn`t sure it would sound like anything `til Scott sent his guitar recordings. I agree its up there with his best!
I enjoyed making the "choir" ( 4 tracks looped and then run through the harmoniser,so 8 in all).
Thanks for the suggestion on the vocals- I`ll have a listen with some delay and see if it fits.
Mix was a big challenge mostly because my sorry laptop can`t handle that many tracks without complaining - the folk songs are a breeze in comparison.

Robert

Robert,

You've outdone yourself with this! As I listened, I kept on thinking "This is a cinematic experience!" You've really pulled out all stops here.

Scott, your guitar work shines brilliantly! It's a perfect fit with Robert's musical extravaganza.

I cannot imagine how much effort has gone into getting this production together! It's incredible.

All the best,
Noel

Peter, Sergio and Rob thanks so much for the awesome comments. Was so glad to be invited to play on this song. When Robert sent it to me and I heard all the work he had done on the back track vocals and harmonies I was blown away. So very glad you liked it

Well done guys


Graham,
Thanks for taking a side trip with us way from your regular fare... funny, I got the idea from a spy novel.

Hats off to both of you.

ALan


Alan,
Prog. rock bands often came up with the strangest ( most pretentious!) song titles, so I figured mine would be in good company.
Glad you like the big sound; thanks for your positive comments.

If not get one!!

David,
Thank you!
I did sign up on songtradr if that`s the kind of thing you mean... "dealer" kind of scares me.

The vocals and guitar are simply outstanding.

Previous posts have hit all the highlights already so we'll just say that you and scott jumped off a cliff and landed in a good place!

J&B


J&B,
I`m glad you enjoyed our cliff jumping!
As said, I`ve signed up on songtradr and as long as the hoops you have to jump through there don`t lessen music making fun, who knows?

5. And then there's that gloomy voice ;-) perfect for this song.
6. I detect several influences here: Fleetwood Mac, REM, Tom Petty, all favorites of mine!

This is just super!

Rob


I agree completely and I couldn't have said it any better.

This is just an outstanding collaboration.

This is a keeper for sure.

Noel,

Yes, lots of work putting this together- thank you for your appreciation.
You mentioned "cinematic" ; my writing does seem to work that way...images I try to put into words.
btw, Scott`s guitar on the repeated theme is double tracked, with the wah playing under the non-wah recording.

Robert

Thank you, Greg.
I had no plans to start revisiting the psychedelic era when BiaB reinvigorated music making for me... so credit to the program for giving ideas a way out of my head and especially to Scott for giving them wings.

Wow, great work on this! I liked the operatic sort of vocals throughout the tune. The arrangement is on point, and in general this is just a strong piece of songwriting.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hello, Robert

Amazing production!
Very unique chord progression and melody!
Scott's guitar tone is also very unique.
The frightening atmosphere is well expressed.
You have a special ability to make music of your own.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

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!!!
