Do you know how I would do a Hit on a passing tone on the 4and and then the resolve chord on the one? Thanks.

You definately have this genre down. What stood out to me was the EP and your bass work. Well done.

Re: The Stratocaster was born in 1954. DC Ron Yesterday at 10:35 PM Forum: Best of YouTube Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Humble beginnings indeed. Nice to keep guitars, but I never seem able to. Even so, most of my guitars are Strats or Strat-inspired. The guitar in my profile pic is a 30 year old Peavey modeled after the Fender Jeff Beck Artist model of that era.

Remarkable indeed. Paul's maybe my favorite singer/songwriter. On the other hand, over the years he's had some pretty funny responses to lyrical analysis of Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard. Like your song, it does sound GREAT though.

Thanks, Dan! Yes, Dusty is wonderfully talented, and we're fortunate to have him up front on these. I scored the harmonies (so thanks!) but Dusty really nails them. And what he does with the Ah BGVs is just gorgeous. There was a fork in the road on the production on going BIG or small, and I opted to keep the band intimate and let the vocals carry the dynamics. Glad you liked it! THANKS for the listen!!

Gary, I'm curious, what are some of the reasons you say that? I agree of course, but if you have anything you would like to share, it might be appropriate to add to the article I wrote a few years back about the audiophile version. If you haven't read it, you should enjoy it. https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=378939#Post378939

The 2024 Mac version will not allow you use a negative number there. You get an error forcing you between 0 and 127.

Re: How do insert quotes from multiple earlier posts in a thread? AudioTrack Yesterday at 08:03 PM Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Good idea. I also use an ellipse (...) front and back if necessary to show I am only quoting a relevant section of of larger post. Yes, also ensure that by quoting a smaller section that you don't change the overall context of the message.

Yes, this was exactly one of the main problems of the ACW when I tried it years ago. After setting the first bars and calculate the rest, it may work ok for a while, but eventually, the audio, bars & screen will go out of sync and all kind of crazy behaviour will happen. It's not just an isolated or an easy to reproduce problem, the whole thing is, in my experience, just too unstable and unreliable to be used in a real project. It could be a great addtion, but, honestly, it looks like the feature is still in a very early alfa stage of development. Definitely, it deserves more love.

Dan, this is so very, very moving. Everything is crisply in place and perfectly supports the song. Love your piano and Kevin's tender vocals. So sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing Kathy with us, and for this remembrance.

Torrey, dynamite song! Love your vocals, harmonies and BGVs. Your lead guitar lines are super melodic and fun, too. And that was an inventive little turn with the bass on the bridge, liked that a lot. Maybe a WIP, but sounds near radio ready to me. Sorry for your flooding troubles, glad you're back!

Re: Is there anyway outside of the Install manager to see how many real tracks one has? Andrew - PG Music Yesterday at 05:46 PM Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts

Is there any way outside of the Install manager or the "what add ons do I have?" window, to see a list of real tracks one has?
Use the RealTracks Picker to see the entire list of RealTracks that you have. Select the 'Show N/A' option to include RealTracks that you don't have, and you can sort by the N/A column. You can also copy the list to the clipboard, paste it into a spreadsheet and sort/manipulate/examine the list in more detail there. Also, you can copy and paste the text fields from the What addons do I have dialog into a text file and that will make it easier to view long lists.

Re: Early Ages jannesan Yesterday at 05:01 PM Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Another pleasant blues song of the modern age with timeless melody and chords. The philosophical lyrics made me think...I like optimistic thinking, unfortunately when times get tough, we tend to forget history and rather to follow some pied piper. The arrangement and the mix is very good, well in balance, the bassline is nice and Dave definitely knows how to play blues - he doesn't repeat mistakes because he never makes them smile Janne
