Hi, Janne. Nice harmonies - when Asterian joins in, he really adds some punch! It's funny how your vocal style comes through with the synthetic voices. A bit long for my short attention span, but I managed to enjoy it anyway.
Hi, David. You really know how to write a song that tugs at the heartstrings! Gonna be like a song by Taylor Swift Starts off in G then a B minor riff That's a stellar rhyme! Fun song, I enjoyed the snark!
The opening guitar sounded like Dave, and... yep, that's him all right. It's blues, so you'll get no complaint from me. Nice arrangement. I noticed the bass, so I checked the credits, and... yep, that's you. Good stuff!
I ordered BIAB 2023 on Dec 1, 2022 and I think it may have been announced a day or two prior. I tried to check on Wayback Machine but PGM has apparently requested that they exclude their website from their system. I wonder why that is?
Please watch this video. （At 3 minutes and 28 seconds） Is this kind of piano rhythm available in RT? I can not find it. It's very difficult for me to find a similar rhythm. Is there a better way, such as importing automatic recognition? Also, every time I click to listen to RT, I have to click SOLO repeatedly. Can I keep SOLO forever? thanks
I was initially going to say too short, but with that sudden end it's perfect as it is. I have one song, more upbeat than this which ends suddenly and it's totally right for it. And ditto in this case..
Thanx so much for the great suggestions. I did vary the volume but not the pitch; that is a great idea. My tricks were: 1-eliminate that slur that made it sound like a theremin 2-expression - foot pedal 3-play mode - slider 4-bow position - slider 5-bow pressure - slider

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks
MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:
There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:
1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track
Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!
Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review
Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!
"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
