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

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!
