Tripwire The next outing for Spirit Level takes us to the brink, with a cameo by a literary character everyone knows. Once again the Biab rhythm tracks were a good starting point and then Scott and Ray took the song to a more interesting and energetic place. Mix by Scott and consensus.

Rob, You have a very expressive voice and the melody here is a wonderful vehicle for you. I`m no expert in the genre, but your Lazy Afternoon seems about as good as it gets. Very well done! Robert

Dan, Your reminiscing works for me; a nice lilt to the melody, gentle backing that suits the feel and an excellent vocal. Very well done for a first Biab production! Robert

And please don't forget about Notation. I don't think it has been looked at in several years. Some of us use songs with lyrics and actually print them out. The layer function is fine, but printing note based lyrics could be much improved. BIAB struggles with lyrics on 1/8 notes - too much text and not enough space. It has a similar problem with the last bar on a line where the lyrics can get stacked on top of the next verse.

David, I like the shiny optimism in the write and Eleanor`s so-human vocal. Good changes ( from whatever genre)- you have a talent for flowing melodies. Excellent production as usual; those counterpoint bgv`s are beautifully timed. Much more enjoyable than K-Pop! Robert

Thanks to everyone who commented and came up with suggestions on how to improve this one. Here's the new version. Vocals further up in the mix, as is the sax. Sax riff added to one verse. L/H guitar replaced with piano. The replaced guitar still has a small part to play in various places.

Because the Everything Pak you have is not recent, it will not contain all the RealTracks the new styles will use, so the answer is probably not.

Really like this one, Eric. Fine guitar playing is perfectly balanced with the excellent synths. The opening was a bit sudden but effective and the end was a complete surprise. Well done.

Hi Eric. Great guitar playing - it seemed more connected to the backing track in the last part than in the first 1min 15 sec but nevertheless enjoyable. I felt the fiddle was too repetitive for a standalone piece but, as Dan wrote, fine for background music in an action video. Keep up the good work.

I need an answer to this: "Xtra Styles PAKs won't work with the Pro or MegaPAK version because they need the RealTracks from the UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, or Audiophile Edition." I have the Everything PAK that I purchased many years ago. Will this Xtra Style PAK 11 work with it? Thanks

Well.... Even though I'm no audience for this genre or type of song I gave it a spin. The tempo change did not work for me at all. It's a slow ballad sort of song and the (any) tempo change is awkward and doesn't add anything to your effort. If I were asked I'd say leave it at the 100bpm. But...it's your song so good luck with your recording. Just being candid....hope that helps. Have a great day....

I don't think anyone is contemplating abandoning MIDI. The point Mario and others are making is that, when PG Music develops new RealTracks and RealDrums, they should develop some MIDI tracks and styles too.
