Hi all.

My first posted track so I'm hoping I get this right.
I've listened to lots of the ones posted and am super impressed with the talent around here and read some of the threads in this sub-forum.

This tune was developed directly from the Brent Mason Artist Performance Set 4, with some mods to the instruments, slight change of tempo and I've kept the excellent lead guitar performance because it fits so well.

Enjoy listening (I hope) and if anyone wants the detailed info, I'll post later.

Sound Cloud - These Lonely Streets

I exported the individual tracks to my Tascam DP24SD to add the vocals and backing vocals, but didn't radically alter the BIAB tracks during that process as they sound about as good as they can already.

Nice country song. Very smooth. I always like it when people post their lyrics as sometimes it's hard to hear all the words.

Thanks Belladonna... I also meant to do that, but at the moment, they only exist written in pen on paper. I haven't typed them up (it's that same "lazy day" thing.

When I get home tonight, I'll type them up and post them. smile

Welcome and a well done entry to the forum.

As floyd mentioned all the essentials are well done...vocals and the mix. It sounds very nice on our monitors.

Well done!

Welcome to the showcase, Mr. Jones smile This is a great first submission - it's got really strong vocals, and the arrangement job here is seriously on point. It sounds really professional. The groove is great too - really easy to tap your foot to. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the local country station.

Thanks so much for sharing - can't wait to hear more from you!

These Lonely Streets - By Mr Jones

I walk along these lonely streets, with nothing on my mind.
I take a trip down Memory Lane, to see what I can find.
I reminise about that kiss, in the days when the sun always shone.
But now the sun's set, there's nothing left, the memories have all gone.

I trace my footsteps, in the darkness, down Lonely Avenue.
Hoping by some chance, you'll still be there.
Your silhouette danced in the moonlight, the moonlight so blue.
Starlight flickered so gently, in your golden hair.

I ride along these broken highways, I take the long road home.
If it's a road that leads me nowhere, I ride it on my own.
With no remorse, I'll stay the course, and discover where this old road goes.
Maybe a gohst town, I can settle down, no one really knows.

I trace my footsteps, in the darkness, down Lonely Avenue.
Hoping by some chance, you'll still be there.
Your silhouette danced in the moonlight, the moonlight so blue.
Starlight flickered so gently, in your golden hair.

Repeat verse one and chorus.

Thanks for the welcomes and compliments everyone... I've been writing songs and playing with home recording for decades and it's still nerve racking posting new stuff to new people, so I really appreciate the feedback. smile

I'm more a rockabilly than a country guy (though my musical taste on whole covers lots of things), so this song is a little bit out of the ordinary for me, but as soon as I heard the artist performace track, I knew I had to write a song for it... The ready made music almost wrote the lryics for me and I'm loving BIAB's ability to quickly make ideas come to life.

Yes, welcome indeed Mr. Jones!! As Floyd said, very nice vocal. You've captured a bit of a retro feel, in a very nice way. Song has a very tangible and powerful emotion to it. Really, really, well done!! Come back soon! Take care. Greg

I agree that you have a great voice for this classic country song.
All the work you put in harmonising the lead vocal and the ooohs throughout are not wasted- its an impressive sounding mix for a first post and I thoroughly enjoyed the song.
Welcome to the forum!

#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.

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
