Hi again folks,

Tune-2 was built around a little sax riff I came up with while practicing.

This is my second production with PG Music software.

All tracks are RealTracks with the exception of my 4 tenor sax tracks.

The Basic style was Jazz Fred.

Other than BIAB/RB, Audacity was used for a dash of post-mix editing (crop, Amplify, bass boost for Soundcloud).

The 10-band EQ and PG Reverb were used on most tracks, with a dash of Chorus/Echo on the saxes and guitars.

Thanks very much again for listening!

I loved this track. The production is very professional to my ears. A great example of what Realtracks are capable of.

The sax riff is very cool.
You seem to have been very subtle with the chorus effect - it's so easy to overdo and sound 80s - but you pulled it off.

Thanks folks! Rayc, I just use that as a fattener rather than an effect. Much appreciated!

Hi Warren,

Good to "meet" you. I'm a big fan of just about all kinds of Jazz. Loved this one. I always enjoy a solid bass line and this one is perfectly ion the pocket. And the organ lead riff was terrific. The sax is stellar.

Sounds great! Nice arrangement and presentation. Best to you.

Alan

Excellent swing feel, could listen to this for a very long time.

Knockout sax work with the harmony parts shining right through.

Smooth, cool, enjoyable.

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.
