I showed PG 3rd party graphic tools years n years n years ago but that didn't go anywhere, maybe it was not crossplatform ? You need to look down the track and see if you vision the same thing happening 10-20 years from now where you have the Win version at xmas time then the Mac version mid year, still. This is a lot of time wasted that users don't see and I think could be better spent equally on a crossplatform rather than wasted repeating the same thing on Mac, would you have to have yet another 6 months for a Linux version ? you would then need more programmers mid year to work on the current year's Linux version while other programmers are working on the next years Win version [Linked Image] to both be released in Dec. JUCE is specifically designed for audio apps, you don't need an old BBW running in the background of each app and Plugin that they talk to. I had to do the same thing with AutoHotkey in Reaper to send actions to Biab, it works but it's a bodgy way of doing things. The Biab generate code could not be doomed to stay in Delphi, I as one who knows nothing about programming Delphi or C++ can make up Lua scripts in Reaper to generate tracks much the same as Biab, surely a C++ programmer like Adar can do the same with the JUCE PLUGIN ????? The PLUGIN has to wait all the time for Delphi programmers to do things with BBW4 before it can go ahead, just like we are waiting now for PLUGIN fixes but they are working on repeating things on Mac. All other audio apps you see new versions or updates for Win Mac (even Linux) released at the same time. RapidComposer and other apps have the exact same app in a VST form without talking to the main app running silently in the background. Other users need to encourage PG more, it should not all be up to me to nag n nag n nag frown look into it more, read up on it, then post ideas for PG of getting them to this goal down the track.

Dan, Absolutely gorgeous! Whoah. Splendid from beginning to end. It is funny how we are writing about the same stuff, in a way, but it is so...mmmm...different! I guess Jesus loves all his little hard-headed children. Happy Easter!!!

Hi Ronnie ... Man, I played a lot of this type of music back in the '60s and early '70s. Terrific song that perfectly catches the era. Well, I eventually ended up in California for about 5 years - Bakersfield. And yep, met Buck Owens. My former wife knew him well. She went to school with one of his sons and visited at his house on several occasions. You really captured the sounds and ideas of the era! Nicely done! Best to you, Alan PS: On Saturday, I'll be posting a song I put together for you and another Forum member.

Steve ... Thanks for the history lesson. My minor in college was American History. My degree is in physics with an emphasis on the physics of light. But history has always been a passion of mine. I knew there was a code-breaking facility in England during WW !!, but knew little else about it. That was an interesting read! I can tell a lot of planning went into this song - and certainly paid off! Very nicely conceived and presented. The bass sounds great! Excellently done! Alan

Marty, What a nice song! Loved the video, too! The lyric really shines I like what it says. And then there's the terrific vocal and great bass line. Many years ago i wrote a song about how songs play with our memory to tell the story of our lives. Maybe I'll pout some BIAB tracks with it and see where it goes. I love it when a song inspires me to give some of my songs another look. Thanks for that! That was a great listen! Of course, thta's no surprise. Take care, Alan

Risen In Three Days Ronnie Fields 03/29/24 02:11 AM Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
It's been a LONG time since I wrote one for Easter, but this one came to me last week, and I plan on singing it Easter morning. https://on.soundcloud.com/VUgfRP7mRNs5SkNg7 Risen In Three Days In the early dawn, the stone was rolled away, As the sun rose high, the darkness turned to day. He conquered the death, the grave could not contain, Our savior lives, he broke the chains of pain. Chorus: Risen in three days, our hope’s restored, He overcame the grave forever more. His love is so strong, his mercy so pure, Risen in three days, our salvation’s sure. The scars they remain, a testament of grace, Such a sacrifice, our sins he did erase. With two open arms, he said we are his own, In his embrace, we find our home. Risen in three days, our hope’s restored, He overcame the grave forever more. His love is so strong, his mercy so pure, Risen in three days, our salvation’s sure. Bridge: No power on earth, can stand in his way, He is the truth the light, in him eternal day. Risen in three days, our hope’s restored, He mercy so pure, Risen in three days, our salvation’s sure. overcame the grave forever more. His love is so strong, his mercy so pure, Risen in three days, our salvation’s sure. His love is so strong, his mercy so pure, Risen in three days, our salvation’s sure.

That's partially true, but we must keep in mind that the entire music engine framework was already developed and the plugin only had to take that output and handle and present it through a different interface. This would be a significantly lesser challenge than starting with nothing. I agree that the graphics are improved in the plugin, but those same quality graphics could be rendered in other languages, including Delphi. There are even many 3rd party layered product tools available to deliver that. Restrictions in graphics presentation is really more controlled by the innovation of ideas of the developer(s).

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
