Dear "jannesan"...

Out of a title as simple and stark as "One", you and Ms. Mira have created something that will surely appeal to many, in and out of the User's Forum.

Your sudden intuition that an acoustic piano would greatly enhance this new version was an inspirational moment of transporting musical clarity, in my opinion, at least. The piano along with Ms. Mira's voice crying out the imaginative lyrics turns "One" into a duet of sound and singing. To be emotionally moved by this composition required only a single listen, after which I wanted to just sit still and replay the performance in my head and heart so I could keep it there, close to me.

The cello and viola in concert with the RealTracks nearly obscures the fact that the piece was created using Band-in-a-Box. I think it could cause someone, anyone to argue that it couldn't have been produced with software, no matter how sophisticated or accomplished that software is. It simply sounds like it was performed and recorded in concert hall. I expected to hear applause when it ended, after a long pause held by a stunned audience.

I don't know how you did it, but you did. This is what the word "beautiful" was meant to describe.

Lost in it,

LOREN

Anyway, this version is really well done and good.
Sometimes simple is better. We have all these tracks and want to use them, but paring back to the basics sometimes is the absolute best way to go and this proves that.
Nice work and well done.


Thank you Herb for your kind words smile I agree that sometimes simple is better. When you start composing with BIAB you find many nice sounding realtracks and you want to use them all and finally the arrangement is too complex. Sometimes you should think outside the Box, Band-in-a-box in this case smile , and then you can realize what the song really needs.

Thanks Loren, I really appreciate your kind and beautiful words and deep analysis of my song smile I can hear your applause after the song wink Nice to hear that this didn't sound like a BIAB produced, I agree that those string RealTracks are excellent.

Hello, Janne

Really beautiful Melody!
Earlier version is also very nice, but this version tells straight the merit of good melody, it is my favorite.
The chord progression is also very nice as usual.
Mira's vocal is very sweet.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

WONDERFUL!!! I can really hear the Cranberries here. Maybe my favorite vocal by Miira!! (and that's saying a LOT). Wonderful chord changes, and I love the rolling beat-you just get lost in it. GREAT stuff hear Janne!! Take care. Greg

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!!!
