Jump to new posts how to create kareoke by earl kirby @ 19 minutes 16 seconds ago

I have very poor eyesight so love the big lyric window. Problem is everyone advises NOT to use BIAB to perform live. How do I save my backing tracks as kareoke and what is best way to play them live?

"All they care about is power And how to keep it in their hands Calculating who’s expendable When they’re drawing up their little plans" Amen bro. Well, we could not agree more on the lyric! Groundhog Day indeed. Both vocals are great, and as mentioned, the placement of the harmonies is oh, so good. You know we love your guitar work, quite obviously Peter, but also your arrangement is excellent. Janice has been humming this tune for days so you know she loves it. Enjoyed

“He took the stage while keeping others busy, then took all that they had. He wants to lead. What kind of leader is he? He's worse than merely bad. He's not unlike so many of our leaders so power hungry and cruel. This pyschopath won't tolerate the cheaters who break his blackened rule. “ Absolutely! What a great write, performances by you and Dave, mix and video we’ve got here, Marty. Those two vocals highlight your big range and that deep devil’s voice is perfect. We both looked fo

“I feel the message of her spirit And my weariness is gone” We love this. The entire lyric is lovely but those two lines speak volumes. It is remarkable how well you told the story in but two minutes. We also enjoyed that fine acoustic bass and fingerpicked guitar highlighting your cool vocal. Enjoyed it, J&B

This is a happy country song and, having family members who’ve lived on farms, we can relate to the joy and the work involved. We especially like this: “Stuck on this farm like I’m stuck on you, like everything about this 80 acres with a view” Janice said she thought of Jimmy Ibbotson from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - a good thing. Good vocals, band and mix! Enjoyed it, J&B PS: Bud remembers the FFA crowd from high school and he further remembers when he ended up bailing hay

Never really tied Real Band. Tinkered with it back when it was 32 bit. I guess the plugin, which I love and use all the time, has been more useful for me. I may go back and play with it, now it's 64 bit. Incidentally, I have asio working now and demos are playing. I tried everything you guys have kindly suggested but I've no idea how I did it. Guess I'm just good at FUMBLING through problems. :-) Mal.

But his hands and fingers are in sync with what's going on and videoed. That does not seem to be the case in the other one. Something just doesn't look right.

Good one Dewey. Good mix too. I like the way your voice is slightly rough around the edges (slightly raspy I mean) in places. It fits the song very well.

If they existed as an Event, they would show up in my experience I'd first try Cut Then right away select Data Filter Here you can determine what you are actually cutting Next would be checking the Track itself and see if it is being routed to a certain sound (right click)

Back on topic: I wanted to upgrade my crash cymbals from the budget ones I had. I was back and forth between Paiste PST7s and 2002s. They both sound very similar, but I had a slight preference for the 2002s although I could throw up some PST7s and be happy. There is a substantial price differential. Wanting to be sure that I wasn't just going with confirmation bias, I had my wife listen to some sound clips and let her make the decision. I told her about the cost after she listened.

This also happens when you have a sample rate mismatch between your interface and Windows. I have no problem with Windows Media Player.

How to: Using Playable RealTracks in the Notation Window of Band-in-a-Box® 2022 for Windows

With the release of Band-in-a-Box 2022, we added Playable RealTracks! These allows you to add MIDI notes to the same RealTrack that is playing, either at the same time, or alternating back and forth. This means you can get the RealTracks to play the notes you want at key parts of the performance, either augmenting or replacing what the RealTracks is playing, for the section you want to change.
