Morning folks,

My songwriting partner thought it would be a good idea to do a little promo video for our new CD, basically describing how we work. Video quality is not that great, all I have here is an iPad, and she used her phone. But, kind of a fun thing to do!

Next year I'm going to see about getting something more professional, I've been wanting to post some blues guitar instructional videos up on youtube for some time now, and of course I'll be featuring BIAB in those videos.

Anyway, maybe some of my pgmusic forum friends will get a smile out of this:



P.S. does anyone know why the above media tag doesn't work??

P.P.S. thanks for the tip, videotrack, it's working now smile

Enjoyed the video, well put together.

The video tag just needs you to use possibly only enter the identifier

(It may be because of the "https:" URL)

Thanks for taking the time to view and comment Bob and Charlie, and thanks for the help with the media tag videotrack, worked like a charm!

Dave,

Really enjoyed that. Particularly interesting to learn about the transatlantic connection with Chris.Nice observation about how her lyrics drew you in.

Thanks, Deryk!

We released it already on all the digital sites and also bandcamp. We have actually sold a few on bandcamp amazingly enough! And we have received a couple of really good reviews for it as well.

Might break even in a year or two laugh

But, for us we have no expectations whatsoever, it's all about having fun with the music and this was a fun project to do.

Hats off to both of you! Your combined sound is very easy to listen to! And don't worry (too much) about video quality. Youtube is full of video captured by phones. Seems to be working OK for a lot of people.

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!
