The one, the original..... I loved the video. I've played with the feature a little bit and it seems cool. Your part of the video is the best. I like to see how you sing it out.

Good work on the song overall and thanks for inspiring me to do one as well!

Holy cow, Joanne. Never seen anything like that, before. Wonderful playing!
I espcially liked watching the keyboard dynmics as relates to the vocal. The player knows just how to punctuate, accentuate, and just as important, when to get out of the way, bar by bar, note by note. This video shows that in a unique way. Hoping to see more.

Very cool. I enjoyed watching your performance as well as the video Realtracks. Amazing arangement and mix. Your vocals sound great. This is the first of everybodies that I've listened to. (besides my own of course) and its cool to see your vision for the song as the lyricists.

Hello, Joanne

I listened to the original version of this song for the first time.
It is a wonderful folky song.
I entirely agree with Noel.
Congratulations on creating such a fine song and with such an impressive video presentation! I enjoyed listening and watching.

Best regards.

Hi Joanne,

Loved the video tracks. But, of course, the great song made it even more enjoyable. Loved this! Your music is always so well done - well-written, well-produced and great on the ears! Super job!

Alan

Joanne,
Very interesting video- not sure I understand what I`m seeing ( the RT artists as they were recording?) but will investigate more... or wait for your blog!
Your version is definitely a keeper; folky, sincere and melodic. Probably closest to the way I envisioned the lyrics - its been great fun to listen to the variety of interpretations.

Robert

Robert, yes that's the new Video Realtracks feature of BIAB 2018. Just a small portion of the audio-only Realtracks were set up with video samples. I'm sure in coming years more of the audio-only Realtracks will be modified to video.

Sorry it has taken me a while to get back to this thread. What excitement for me having 11 different versions of these lyrics posted to this forum! What an absolute priviledge!

Steve - Thank you so much for your ongoing support and commitment to this experiment. You have been quite wonderful and may you post many many more songs!

PeterGannon - Thanks for taking a listen and commenting. Always much appreciated. I love these video tracks and will be using them in this years FAWM.

Charlie - Thank you. The video edidting definately comes with practice. At first you think you will never be able to do it but the more videos you do the easier it becomes. Lining up the seven different files in NCH Videopad is actually a breeze now. You can zoom right into the wav files and simply slide them over until the peaks and troughs match exactly. It is a good skill to acquire it you are serious about making music videos.

jcspro40 - Thanks for listening

Sixchannel (Ian) - Thank you and yes watching the hands move over the guitars and keyboard is mesmerizing! I cant even imagine how PG Music achieved this because obviously if you transpose the song the "hands" also magically transpose. They also play along with whatever tempo you choose. It boggles the mind actually!

Lambada - Thanks for listening....I await your version out there in the ether. I also hope you will give the videotracks a try.

Bob - Thanks so much. It was a bit of a fiddle but it will definitely get easier.

Rob - thanks for listening and commenting

Noel - Thanks so much for all the help, support and encouragement you give the folk on this forum. I appreate it and I am sure everyone else does to.

Floyd - thanks and yes, as soon as I learned about the new video tracks I began waiting and waiting for my disc to arrive so I could try it out. Due to recording the video of me recording the vocals I didn't do all the processing I normally do on my vocals so it was all a little rough around the edges. Thanks for suggesting the blog post. I think it will help out other folk wanting to experiment.

Rich - thank you and, yes I think waiting to listen to the other versions until after you have done yours is a good idea. Loved your version too. Thank you for taking part in this challenge.

Tuenis - thank you. I think I had already imagined my "folky" type version when I wrote the lyrics but am still amazed at how they have been taken in so many different directions.

HTL - THANK YOU for suggesting this challenge. You have really brought the forum folk closer together with it and I really love your rock version too. Well done.

Torrey - Thank you. As I said, it is a little bit rough around the edges due to "too many things going on at the same time". I think I may rerecord it properly at a later stage.

Steve - Thanks again. You have encouraged me to do more of the videos of "me recording vocals" for FAWM.

Ed - Thanks and I WISH it was me playing all the guitars, keys and bass. No such luck. I am struggling to learning to play piano. Cant seem to get the right hand to do one thing while the left hand is doing another! Will definitely be doing more with these video tracks.

Sam - Thanks and thanks alos for your wonderful version of those lyrics. Glad you enjoyed and have a good FAWM!

Shigeki - Thank you! Let me know if you want me to record some vocals for your version too..

Al - Glad to hear the song is "easy on the ears". I think it comes from listening to all those John Denver songs growing up...

Robert - What steve said about the video tracks... You can find out more on my blog

Hello, Joanne

Thank you very much for your proposal to record some vocals for my version.
I am very happy to hear that. Please try it by all means.
I would really like to listen to your vocal version.
I uploaded the music sheet of this song, accompaniment mix down, individual instrument tracks and BIAB SGU file on the link below.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/np19ylhpldj6zvg/AAB-VuzZVRNm7kucyvP8Ck6Oa?dl=0

The current key is Fmajor, but I think that I can deliver another key file immediately if it does not fit.
Or, if you send a vocal WAV file, it is also possible for me to complete the mix down.
I sent the same contents with PM.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

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

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
