Dave, Chris & Marty, Wow! A new favorite! Chris sounds excellent with a perfect slow-burn vocal and some great piano lines. Love the arrangement and the mix as well. You and Marty sound great together. I really like your guitar parts here - I am getting some Santana vibes. Awesome stuff! Bob

Chris Spruit is back with us for this one, she wrote the lyrics, did the vocals, and plays piano. Lately we have been mostly focused on producing videos because we get way more listens on YouTube than any of the streaming platforms, but for those that prefer just audio there is an audio only link at the end of this post. I used Copilot to produce the images for the video, fun stuff!

Great song, lyrics and arrangement, Robert, and thanks for sharing! I think the world-weary quality of your vocals captures the feeling of the song nicely. I also liked the BIAB electroflutes instrument you used in the background.

musocity: I have been reading and watching your submissions to the forum for a while now and you have really peaked my interest in using Reaper with BIAB. My question is where does one start the journey and can you suggest a starting place? I know that might be a lot to ask but where would you suggest to start. Thanks.

The only place I ever played that had the ability for IEM was a church we attended. Being old school, I ran the axiom mix into a powered hotspot. Line out of the amp for the FOH with the amp tilted back so I could hear it over the orchestral instruments.

Re: Why own music? Guitarhacker 57 minutes ago Forum: Off-Topic Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Still haven't watched the video.... But based on the summary..... Own it. Buy the physical copy vs. Streams. Streams are convenient but with time, you tend to lose your paid for streams as you change devices or let your service go. I can pull my Iron Butterfly album off the shelf and take Innagoddadavida for a spin any time I feel like it or convert it to digital and put it on my device until I change devices and repeat the process..... If I own it.

Re: Is PG Keeping Up with Things ? justanoldmuso 1 hour ago Forum: Band-in-a-Box Wishlist Jump to new postsJump to new posts
all. fyi every time i look for apps for my tablet..they are quite simple and missing things i want. it would have to be a simple biab due to tablet architecture... which would i suspect frustrate users.... in essence a developer is limited by platform archifecture. bb has a huge amount of content to further complicate things. bb is not like one doing simple tasks like me typing this text on my tablet... i would love bb on my tablet...but there would be limitations that might annoy me. this is a no win situation for a developer....imho. an ipad pro is a very different more powerfull product than a 100 bucker tablet and also ten times the cost or more due to useing the fab new m cpu silicon. much as i like the new ipad...i cant just justify the cost particularly as i can buy all day powerfull refurb laptops for 200 bucks which will run bb and rb. my last refurb i did over 90 songs with. ran like a champ with ssd. my new mini pc with ryzen and m2 ssd is amazeing for 400 bucks. rb reports i can do over 200 tracks in a song. happiness. om

Re: That Man musician17 1 hour ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Superb. I'm on my second listen - the first time I heard this, a few days ago, it almost floored me ... so I needed to take some time and hear it again, some other time (i.e. now). Someone above commented on the slow tempo. I agree - a great choice. It lets the music breathe. Stunning, dark lyrics. Beautiful, achingly sad and beautiful (at the same time) ending. The harmonic progressions are nothing short of inspired. And, coupled with your storyteller's voice ... wow. Also love the long-ish, instrumental ending ... perfectly suited to this song. Definitely one of your best, in every way.

Nice intro! Super bass and rhythm guitars. Lead sounds good (I listened to your updated mix) it could come up a bit in places for my tastes, but I probably mix mine too loud eek Sounds good already, looking forward to hearing how it develops.

Re: In-ear monitors, do you use them? eddie1261 1 hour ago Forum: Off-Topic Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I used WAVS in-ears. They were 3D printed from 3 scans of each ear to fit my ears perfectly. You can order them with any of 3 driver configurations. They are the best this I ever had, FAR better than generic earbuds. When I had them in I could FEEL the band around me but not hear anything I told the monitor mixer to exclude. And I am not exaggerating. I had to watch the drummer count the songs in because I couldn't hear his sticks clicking. If everybody used in-ears you'd never hear feedback again. We opened for a band once who used no stage amps and no monitors. I stood side stage when they started and all you could hear was drums. When you walked out into the crowd you heard the music. Had they used electronic drums all you would hear is sticks hitting pads. I loved it!

In-ear monitors, do you use them? MountainSide 2 hours ago Forum: Off-Topic Jump to new postsJump to new posts
For those of you who play out live, do you still use floor or side fill monitors or have you gone to in-ear monitors? I have a set of Shure 215's but looking for something better....something with a flatter response rather than v-shaped. Something less muddy, clearer and with a wider sound stage. Lots of Chi-Fi options these days with KZ being one of the leaders. Some say these are way ahead of main stream offerings from the likes of Shure, Sennheiser, Mackie, Audio Technica etc. Lots of interest these days in dynamic drivers and balanced armature drivers. But what do I know? You guys have any thoughts? Jeff

Re: Crystal Lake (In the Rearview) DC Ron 2 hours ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Ray, glad you enjoyed the nostalgia! I had to look up Wheatus. It's sometimes embarrassing how many well known acts have evaded my attention. Anyway, it took a while to sort through their top handful of their songs given how Teenage Dirtbag overpowered much of their stuff in the search engines. But...I really like them and their brand of power pop, and I think that much of what I'm trying to do musically on this song and others aligns with what they do. (They are of course MUCH better at it.) But I'm scratching my head at your "wrong genre" comment since I think Wheatus would be an aligned genre. It's not you, it's me. I've got a lot to learn for sure. THANKS again for the listen and reflection! That's why I'm here. smile

Re: Time Based Lyrics - How do you do this in RealBand? MountainSide 2 hours ago Forum: Off-Topic Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Couldn't find any way to enter lyrics in RB except to use the event editor and to it by time. Extremely tedious and time consuming at best. Found a free program called LivePrompter that at least lets me convert lyrics to text files and then have them shown along side RB. Using that program, I can vary the font size, scroll lyrics automatically either by time (slow or fast) or song measures...doesn't seem to be a way to scroll by tempo. But at least it's a start. If you're in a similar situation and need PC -based lyrics LivePrompter may help ( https://www.liveprompter.com/ ) Jeff

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
