Being born and raised in Ontario, I have a lot of fond memories of going out and going for sleigh rides to sing holiday carols, and they were always trying to make these events on the farm bigger and better each year. I remember the even had an inflatable snow globe you could walk around the inside of at one point. Your song definitely gave me some serious nostalgia, so thank you for sharing it!

Each file is anywhere from 2-8MB, with the resolution set for 128. Lower resolution should result in smaller files. But I've got plenty of hard drive space.

Hello guys, We've been away for some years. Long story short: We moved to a new place, but because of the renovation we had to go a holiday park for 7 months. We've been working on a Leonard Cohen program (completely finished by now). It contains 20 songs and several video's. The music of most songs was done with BIAB but.... we are not "officially" allowed to post them because these are covers. We had a good thing going until corona. And, Rob is very busy making add-ons for Dragon

Jump to new posts Re: Why do "out of key chords" sound right? by cqd @ 19 minutes 59 seconds ago

Hi.. This is a secondary dominant.. B7 is V of E, which is V of A.. So a V of V.. You could also try a V of any of the other chords too.. Say V of ii, F#7 to Bm in A.. or V of iii, Ab7 to C#m.. V of vi is common too..So C#7 to F#m.. (All these examples are in A..)

Thank you John, that's good info to have. I have quite a few as well, didn't realise that there was a demo for each as I audition them over the chord sheet. I access then in stylepicker by going to Type---Midi and Other---user, they all come up no problem. Will have a think about doing what you have done, do the resulting files that you have created take up much drive space? Thanks again.

agreed the new 'all the same tracks' goes a long way to making BIAB a lot more flexible but the transparency of RB still makes it the natural place for me to go when the song has been roughed out in BIAB. With the RB tracks window you can see everything at the same time

For anyone that has purchased Norton MIDI Styles sets (I've got 26 sets along with seven Hawkesford style sets, and getting ready to order the newest two sets), they all come with .sgu demo files, but do not come with .wma audio demo files. So in StylePicker, if you click on the audio demo for one of the Norton Styles (they all begin with "#" sign) or Hawkesford Styles (they begin with a tilde "~"), you get a "demo file not found" error message.

I appreciate the input. Just to be clear: I'm no beginner. I've toured the world as a musician and have been doing this for 40 years. That's why I'm asking about the distinction here. That's not to 'blow my own horn.' That's just for clarification. There are also other things with BIAB that I've noticed: things like the labelling (or lack thereof) of double-time/half-time styles, etc. But the style thing seems to be to be the most pressing simply because if someone is looking for something with

Its matured well in that notebook of yours. A great song - decent tune (it does have a nice musical hook), good choice of RTs etc and brill lyrics. Back then did we really 'make love until the morning' ? 20/20 wishful hindsight. Loved the octaving in the guitar bridge.!! Cracker!! Best Ian

By the way, I just read this ... The S1 folks should be happy with this BIAB-VST love in 2022. Quote:One of the cool things that you can do with the BIAB plug-in is Shift+ drag the chord progression to Studio One's chord track and boom you have the progression in your DAW. Maybe the reverse direction is now working also?

THis is a song I wrote about 35 years ago.... I was thinking about it and decided to record it now. I am remembering the lyrics as best I can.

OK, So all is working pretty much as it always has here, but I have moved on to BIAB-VST 4.0 (BIAB 2022). I still can move chord chart between Reaper, BIAB-VST and Scaler with only minor adjustments needed. Those occur when the nomenclature for the chord is not recognized by one of the programs. For example Scaler and Reaper both recognize Fsus4, but BAIB-VST does not know this sytex and leaves that bar blank. See if this picture is clear showning the same chord chart (started in Scaler) dra

Thanks everyone for replying. Unfortunately the problem persists, in fact, it is worse than I first thought as the interference on the Soloist track affects any style , not just the one I was using at the time. To ensure there is no cross-contamination from other projects, I completely uninstalled the 2022 version, thoroughly cleaned out my system, re-downloaded the program and made a fresh install and made a totally new project.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
