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

Noel,

Thank you for listening and giving me this response! This is the magic of music – me in Norway, and you on the other side of the world – a voyage without boarders. Really appreciate it – keeps me chasing the next song :-)

Take care,
Einar

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
