I can't remember if I posted this previously, but if so, I'll share again. If not, enjoy the listen.

Graham Clark, one of my former choir directors at church, wrote a song a number of years ago to enter into the new Virginia state song competition. He made it into the final judging; his biggest competitor was Jimmy Dean, as I understand it.

Anyway, he gave me a cassette with a piano accompaniment in the left channel and his vocal in the right channel. So I was able to pull the vocal separately.

With that, I was able to use the ACW to get the chord progression and tempo map. I can't remember the style I used at the time, and I did some interspering of RealTracks. Anyway, here is the result, courtesy of BIAB and RealBand, with Graham Clark singing to my producing.

Enjoy!

Extremely well re-created John.

This is a really good listen.

But Tractor-Made ice-cream?

John,

What an excellent listen! You've done an amazing job putting this together from a cassette tape. The clarity of the vocals is outstanding and the quality of the backing is superb! Kudos on a first class arrangement, too.

I really enjoyed my listen.

Happy New Year,
Noel

John,

Really nice sound. Did you use the ACW app or the internal ACW to align everything?

Interesting selection of photographs.

I used the original ACW, as this song was done several years ago.

And tractor made ice cream is where he uses his early vintage era tractor to drive the cream churn. He sells it at the county fair.

Pictures were provided by his buddy, who posted the video originally. It was a really fun project.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Very nice production. Very nice quality on the vocals. I have so many cassette recordings that could be done this way but are unusable due to the poor skills of the recording engineer at the time, (me).

Enjoyed my listen.

Charlie

And yes, a tractor PTO can run nearly anything....

that made me smile.

John,

Really enjoyed the listen and your expert production.

Tractor-made ice cream piqued my taste buds as a hopelessly addicted ice cream lover.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
