January 27, 2016 User Showcase Song - None Of It Matters

When I saw the new Punk RealTracks, I couldn't resist taking them for a spin.
It is very cool that PGMuisc is including genres like this.
I would love to see more "small groups of instrument" (like these) that capture a sound so well.
(Some indie/alt rock and indie/alt singer/songwriter groups?)
These are so good it took very little time to put together.

Thought I should shake it up a bit, after that last "old man" song...

January 21, 2016 User Showcase Song - Foes Of Happiness

Four years ago BiaB allowed us to leave our decades of traditional bluegrass and settle into our current comfort zone of Americana, blues and bluesy country. But every now and then we like to experiment with something a wee bit on the rock side so here is this year's effort :-)

During 2015 I ran into several folks I had not seen in years. They were overwhelmingly bitter about, well, seemingly everything. Most of their experiences seemed to be wrapped up in some form of negativity and they insisted on keeping the conversation there. I reflected a lot on this and ended up writing this lyric. It's obviously nothing profound but as I turn 70 this week it is an attempt to express my feelings on how to deal with negative folks. Don't engage - just run!

Thanks to Tom for his input on the write, arrangement and solo/rhythm guitar, to floyd for critiquing the mix and to my better half Janice for putting up with me by singing/creating melodies for whatever I throw her way.

As always we are very appreciative of your time to listen and comment.

January 19, 2016 #TipTuesday - How to See Band-in-a-Box 2016 Tips

If you've been using Band-in-a-Box for years, you may have turned off the "Tip of the Day" option... but did you know there's a great option within this feature to only show you tips for the new 2016 Version?

To set this up within Band-in-a-Box:
-Go to Help
-Select 'Tip of the Day'
-Click on 'Only Show Tips for Version 2016'

You can also choose to have these tips appear when you first open the program by clicking on 'Show Tips at Startup' within this window.

What a great way to get to know this new version! I just clicked through 5 of them:
-In the Audio Edit Window, vertical zooming can be done with the mouse by zooming over the decibel bar, or by holding down the CTRL key and zooming towards the mouse cursor.
-You can convert the Audio track from stereo to mono, or vice versa, with the Audio | Edit Audio | Convert Channels (mono/stereo) menu command.
-You can choose any color for each element on the Chord Sheet with the color palette in the Display Options dialog.
-Superscript shows the chord extensions with smaller raised font, making the root of the chord more distinguishable, and also helping maximize space on the Chord Sheet.
-The Chord Sheet is fully customizable! To customize, click on the Chord Sheet and select "Display Options" from the menu.

January 14, 2016 User Showcase Song - Breathing Space

Kicking off my new year with a bit of Blues/Rock for a change. I intended it to be fairly minimal with just drums, bass and guitar, but then a Rhodes piano crept in, plus some brass, a Hammond and finally my old friend RT - Sax Tenor Hip Hop. I even threw in a Maj7 chord for John (Skyline). Drums are a rare mix of Realdrums and samples. It was all recorded in Realband and mixed and mastered in Powertracks.

Basically it's just a bit of fun with an "In Yer Face" mix which is intended to be played LOUD.

January 06, 2016 User Showcase Song - Iceland (Remix Contest)

Hi all,

first remix contest this year: https://soundcloud.com/groups/amy-kress-iceland-remix-contest
The original is the last at the bottom.
From the original I used the vocal tracks and a strings track which I completed with some strings by my own.
Just for fun I tried the new crooner big band track and liked it so much that I started working with it. There was a lot of regenerating, copying and pasting. I think the swing feel suits the melody very well.

January 04, 2016 User Showcase Song - GoodBye

First song of 2016 from my songwriting partner Christiane Spruit and myself, quite a bit different than our last one.

The one is using:

Realdrums: NashvilleSwing8^1 initially, then switching to BluesRock128^4 during the guitar solo and the rest of the song

533:Bass,Electric,12/8
526:Guitar,Acoustic,Fingerpicking (I can play the part but I'm not geared up to record acoustic here)
2457:Strings,Rhythm,CelticAir.

Still tweaking the mix, guitar solo probably a bit too loud at the moment.
