#461923 - 03/13/18 09:33 AM [I just heard Band-in-a-Box on YouTube] Cover in a week site

Hi guys
I recently found this site Cover-in-a-week where they select a song and musicians record a cover version of the song. Then, there maybe a chance that they use that cover version for TV or advertising licensing.

Here is my first submission to the site. It is my cover of “Dancing in the Moonlight”, made 100% with Band-in-a-Box in a couple of hours using a combination of midi and realtracks.

Great version of the song, Joanne. Yours has a more melancholy feel to it which gives it a little bit of dichotomy against the poppiness of the original song. Don't know if that was your intent, but just what I heard. Great different feel and the vocals and harmonies are spot on.

Thanks John. The harmonies on this one are just one octave up. I have gotten even lazier with my harmonies lately (if that is even possible). I will be writing a blog post on how I do that shortly.

What jford said here basically hit the nail on the head - I totally agree with him! This reminds me of the best traits of my favourite cover songs: taking something you didn't write, and recreating to be your own. Very distinguishable from the original indeed.

Great work Joanne smile You did some justice to this tune - thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much guys.

I had some good news on this too... Cover in a week have decided to licensed this cover song so there is a chance it may be used in advertising etc. They also asked that I submit more covers.

Further to David’s post about Biab and songtradr and music supervisors, http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=463252#Post463252 ...you can do anything you set your mind to do with BIAB! It is THE most amazing tool for quickly making cover versions of songs as well as many many other things.

Here is my second entry “this is love” by Bob Marley



Next up is “Hit me baby one more time”

This is SUCH a cool concept. I would love to see other BIAB users participating in this.

The first volume of "The Best of Cover of the Week" has been released on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon and it is a GREAT listen.

My song "Dancing in the Moonlight" is there among some other really fantastic (and different) covers.

The Best of Cover in a week Volume 1 on Spotify

On ITunes

On Amazon

The most fascinating thing is listening to the whole album in the car on the way to work this morning and hearing my own cover alongside these other "amateur" type productions . I immediately noticed how cloudy my mix becomes as soon as the bass comes in. hmmm... something to sort out next time. It is also interesting to note what type of covers appeal to the people who select "The best of" versions.

Let me know what you think of the album.

Great cover Joanne. I listen to a lot of acoustic covers of the latest tracks. There are some wonderful songs out there. Given time, I'll have a shot at it.

Re: "I immediately noticed how cloudy my mix becomes as soon as the bass comes in. hmmm... "

Certainly the mix I heard (not on the radio) was absolutely excellent.

Enjoyed this from start to finish.

Thanks for the support guys. I appreciate it.

My Covers of "Is This Love" and "Baby One More Time" have also be licensed so maybe we will see them on the next "best of cover in a week" albums.

This week's cover was Cliff Richard's Summer Holiday. I decide to do an instrumental version (I don't think I could do justice to the vocal on this).

User Blog - Recording and Processing Vocals Using RealBand...

Joanne Cooper's latest blog post is a "start to finish" of how she records and processes vocals for her songs using her three "go-to" programs: RealBand, Melodyne, and Nectar from Izotope (with a little help from Band-in-a-Box...)!

Check out this blog post here.

We can't wait to hear them!

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
