A great listen. A fun write. "...dropped on the floor

Creative production. Good mix. Love the guitars (nice job Torrey).

Thank you, Floyd; I wouldn`t have dreamed of giving a pure pop song a whirl until disovering BiaB and this forum... I sure hope Torrey invites me over to play at his house someday!

Thanks Graham,
I never liked Queen back in those days but have to admit there is a resemblance here!

Comments will be brief as my wife is experiencing serious medical issues.

very nice!

Alan,
Your taking the time to listen and comment- particularly at this tough time, is much appreciated.

Only complaint is it was too short smile


Dave,
Thanks for that - especially pleased you enjoyed my vocal effort.
Pre-Revolver I`m not sure the lads recorded anything over 3 minutes, so that was my limit starting out.
It helps when you have a guitarist like Torrey who can peel off
the riffs with no room to spare!

That was fun! Very inventive - excellent lyrics and wonderful guitar parts by Torrey that have a Brian May feel.

A real treat.

I agree with Kenny-you nailed it!! Like that vocal effect. What was that? Sort of a Queen feel too with the melody and Torrey's excellent guitar track. Great stuff guys!! Take care. Greg

Hello, Robert

You pioneered a new ground.
Very splendid collaboration with Torrey!
Guitar tone is really Beatlish.
Vocals and harmonies are also cool.
And there is ingenuity in the chord progression as usual, I feel your composing style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Greg,
Glad you enjoyed this.
I used a Nectar pop preset on the vocals which are doubled ( and I think Torrey added another EQ).
Thanks for your listen.

Hi Shigeki,
Yes, I thought Torrey really got that George sound on the guitar too!
Thanks for mentioning the progression - most of it is very similar to Obladi Oblada, but I thought the chorus had a bit more Lennon in there.
I appreciate your kind comments.

Robert

Revolver or Rubber Soul > nailed!

It's been, shall I say, a trip watching you branch out more and more. Congrats on setting the high target...and hitting it.

An inventive lyric, engaging vocal, fine guitars and mix all adds up to one of the coolest tunes posted here in a while.

Collabs are fun and when they produce like this...Wow!!!

Thanks very much for that, J&B.
The support of kind and knowledgeable folks like yourself sure makes it easy to go for it ...might be skating on thin ice, but I trust you`ll throw me a rope if it cracks!

#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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
