Wow David - this is unreal! You absolutely nailed the cinematic atmosphere here. I loved all the horn stabs throughout it. It helped give it a jagged edge among the pretty pianos and gentle pulse of the background noise. This would sound perfectly in place in a movie, and also in a video game I was thinking.


Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

I get horns! All Right! Cool.

I think you may have found your calling, son.

Really.

Sooner or later T. Bone Burnett and Danny Elfman will retire...

That has to be the coolest title for a song/movie. I loved this. Loved your script. Buds lines were the best ...

Dear Maestro David:

ANGLE DOWN ON:

A scorched, hellish desert landscape under a broiling sun. Our hero and heroine's frantic escape from the "Valley of the Stone Swordsmen" in their battered Hummer follows a dust-trailed, zig-zagging path around massive boulders, twisted eight-limbed wooden "octopus" trees that reach and grab and snatch at them as they streak towards the oddly clear, unobstructed high-noon horizon.

CAL
(breathlessly, in the bouncing, bucking passenger's
seat, looking over his shoulder in a near
panic)
We're doomed! The stone swordsmen can't be far behind us! What're we going to do, Sal???

SAL
(working the driving wheel, looking way-too-cool
behind her dust-caked sunglasses to be disturbed by
CAL'S wimpiness)
Clamp it, Cal! I need your eyes, man. Look at that horizon. Seem strange to you?

FROM CAL'S P.O.V.

His vision blurred and jangling from the bouncing, banging Hummer ride as SAL weaves around the groaning, grasping "octopus" trees. The view is ahead is plainly...unreal. No curve, or slope to the landscape, no incline, no distant objects in sight, as though --

ANGLE ON CAL

As he realizes what they’re streaking toward.

CAL
(at the top of his lungs,
terrified)
Sal! There’s nothing there! Brake! Brake, now!

ANGLE ON SAL

Jamming her foot hard into the brake as the Hummer approaches –-

ANGLE ON HUMMER – MOVING P.O.V.

Zooming into the Hummer from in front of it as it screeches to dust-clouded halt barely inches from the edge of a rugged and vastly wide cliff.

ON CAL AND SAL

They jump the doors of the Hummer and race toward the cliff edge.

ANGLE DOWN ON CLIFF EDGE – CAL AND SAL IN FOREGROUND

At a stunning depth below the edge, the bottom of the cliff is shrouded in belching, roiling clouds of smoke and walls of writhing flames.

ON CAL

Looking away from the burning, smoky vista and turning to SAL, his face withering into sheer, mute terror.

CAL
It’s…it’s –

ON SAL

Staring down into howling, roaring maelstrom, struggling for composure at the sight.

SAL
-- I know, Cal. It’s the pit of the Darkest Warrior God of the Seventh Seal!

ANGLE ON CAL AND SAL

As we pull up, up, and away from cliff’s edge until CAL and SAL and the Hummer recede like specks against the red sundown distance, and:

CUE END TITLE MUSIC:

The dirge-like, tormented, cataclysmic orchestral stylings of composer David "Psycho" Snyder rise in volume on the soundtrack as we FADE OUT and:

CREDITS ROLL

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

All right, maestro, that's a wrap! Great music, tensely orchestrated and grandly presented. Can't wait for Part 3!

LOREN

Bluage,

OK, I will send you a piece of paper to sign and we will start on this script right now for Ridley Scott.

I want a clause in there though that says Bud still gets to make a cameo and say:

David, see a doctor. See a doctor TODAY!

Actually, this is a good piece of music to play on Halloween!

David,

I've said it before, but your creativity seems as boundless as the universe! This piece is light-years away from the usual songwriting planets you inhabit.

You continue to show me that composing music with BIAB is only as limited as the imagination of the pilot who's flying the program. IN the words of Gene Roddenberry, you seem "to boldly go where no-one has gone before"!

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!
