This is a remarkable production that features supremely effective use of RT's, great vocals and a perfect mix.

BULL, you are a fantastic singer!

Everything that I wanted to say has already been said and I agree with it all 100%.

All I can add is this is a keeper.

PS - you are a great guitarist also.




THANKS Mario!

During the recording process I paid more attention to the vocals, melody and the phrasing, than I ever done before. Usually, I pay most attention to the guitars.
I wrote this song on a steel string guitar, chased a "wall-of-sound" idea, but – LESS IS MORE! The lyric demanded a lot of "air/space", and I decided to follow a simple guitar line that developed through the arrangement. Starting with a nylon string guitar on the verses, changing to steel string on the chorus and finally electric guitar at the end. And I used more time on the vocals and the other sounds than the guitars in this project.

Though, I still consider me a more of a guitar player, than a singer ;-)

Man, that's one seriously innovative use of our precious application right there. I swear, even owners of the program would not be able to guess it if you hadn't told us!
Thanks so much for greatly expanding my views on the possibilities of this nifty tool smile

Oh, and the song itself isn't too shabby either cool

Thank you!
The arrangement is definitely a big part of how the song communicate to the listener. Still chasing the goal of writing (and arrange) my best song ever :-)

Hi Dani!

Nice to hear from you again. And thank you for commenting my song.
A-HA! I'm not worthy – they are still the biggest thing ever happened in Norwegian popular music history!!!
But, if you recognize a "northern a-ha sound" in this song – well, then I'm really proud!

Big WOW! I would never have guessed you used BIAB for this.

Excellent track, great production (love the way it builds), mix, vocal .... very impressive work, well done!

P.S. meant to ask, is that you playing the outro guitar? Great playing!

As I listened, all I could think was...



You took me on a musical voyage that was breathtaking, spectacular even. I sat here in from on my computer with my eyes closed and I just let whatever images your music created float through my mind. It was such a wonderful experience.

Your composing, your singing, the way that you arranged the music, the mix and the presentation all radiated with the highest level of professionalism. "Extraordinary" is a word that just sprang into my mind and applies so well to what I heard!

Stunning music!

Regards,
Noel

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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.
