Another fine tune. You produce real country music. This is well written and well performed. The band had the right touch. Good one.

Initially I downloaded the individual file packages, then installed them onto my two machines in batches, partly because both machines were tight on disc space and I wanted to select what I'd use from what I probably wouldn't, partly because I wanted a safe copy. I changed discs in both machines and they now have more space. Doing it again now, I would let the download manager do all the downloads and installs, then just copy the whole /bb file tree across to the second machine. It can take s

This is an exciting update. The prior implementation of multiple tracks initially looked great, but (for me) turned out to be far less useful that I had hoped. And there are a lot of additions here that have been frequently asked for, which I could see using on a regular basis. So this the first update in a while where the feature update is more exciting than the RealTracks. I may actually read the manual this time!

PG Music has a download manager. PG Music creates a unique to you download URL based on your purchase. Copy the URL into the download manager. The download manager will then download and install the files you purchased. The downloaded files are stored at C:\BBDownloads unless you point the Download Manager to a different storage location. I've added a screen shot of the Download Manager screen below. Also, as a first time buyer understand there is a huge jump in included content between th

BIAB 2022 – is not your father’s music accompaniment app. PG Music took a giant step forward with this year’s introduction. Much of the forum rank and file were promoting a slowdown in 2022 to emphasize a look back to tighten up the aging code, however, PG Music had a different idea: “If we are going to revisit aging code, why not take this opportunity to concurrently Expand and Enhance the code to show off the full capabilities.” The resulting expansion includes Micro Chords whi

Greetings. Will be making my first purchase of BIAB. Will start with 2022 Pro and then likely upgrade to 2022 UltraPak at the awesome sale price. I wish to use the download method. Is there a best practice strategy for downloading? I do want to keep a copy of all the installation files for safety backup on an external HD and also to use those to install on a second computer which PG tells me is OK for non simultaneous use. Is there any special advice on how to proceed with the download? Overni

MusicLover [/quote] Seems like a good choice, only thing you're missing is the Xpro 2 pak and the Xtra style pak 12 which would give you an extra 300 ready made styles.

It was from that thread that moved me from my prior alternative to acronis (EaseUs) to macrium as my acronis alternative. EaseUs used to be free. The last time I tried, it was no longer free. It did perform a way to handle bad sectors and continue an image task while encountering bad sectors. When I started using EaseUs maybe 8 years ago, Acronis could not progress once it encountered a bad sector.

Rick Beato is one of the only YouTube channels I have actually supported financially. I enjoy his videos so much. It is the ultimate music appreciation channel and if I took the time to practice the things he has in his instructional videos, I could probably become a much better player than I am and a much better songwriter.

The first two lines of the first verse hook you in straight away. "The difference between wonderin' and knowin' ". Wow.

Jump to new posts Re: What is your vocal signal chain? by Henry Clarke @ 12/01/21 01:37 PM

My pre-production vocal chain is totally different than my Post-Production vocal chain. For pre-production I just use a vocal chain pre-set that comes with Sonar. It has EQ, Compression, Echo, and Reverb. That just serves to give me comfort when recording the lead vocal. Sometimes I add Autotune as the first effect so I can hear how close I am to being in tune. With the Autotune and the Sonar vocal chain preset I get no latency. Once I have a recording I like I use a different set of effects for
