HERE WE ARE AGAIN

Just a little something mellow for the new year, which hopefully is melodic enough to not scare away members with "musical allergies" to certain genres wink

Fundamentals, per usual:

Style is M_JAZMID.STY

Style MIDI Instruments are : Fender Bass (34), Acoustic Piano (1),
MIDI SuperTracks in style: ~~1917:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 110
MIDI SuperTracks in style: ~~1896:Piano, Rhythm Jazz Sw 110
RealTracks in song: ~1210:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110


I used PG's electric bass plugin rather than the default acoustic, a particularly good partner to the Mike LeDonne piano ST I used, for a bit of 'modern' flavour, rather than the default ST of the style. The added guitar is then just for a fill-out of the overall soundscape. Soloist guitar courtesy of Oliver Gannon.


And that's really all there is to this one - Enjoy! cool

Nice and mellow. Great performance.

I'm becoming more and more a fan of the midi capabilities and features of BIAB and your song is a great showcase. I thought the added guitar fit really well. Good job all around.

Enjoyed my listen.

Janice’s first comment was “carefree and happy.” She also said it reminded her of the Diana Krall “Live In Paris” group.

Excellent composition, arrangement and a crystal clear mix.

No allergies here.

Oh wow, there's a reference I so am not worthy of (I just adore Krall), but thank you for the listen blush

Eddie Mister Cool Icelander this is excellent. Love those vibs! What VSTi did you use?

Super cool laid back song that you should be very proud off!

Excellent song - two thumbs up.

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.
