<< You are probably talking about BIAB. >> Nope. Talking about RB. And yes, I tested the way you import the file you want by selecting FILE then IMPORT and when the selected file imports, it always imports to beat 1 of measure 1 for me too. Now I ask that you try the way I import a WAV file. Use the import WAV option in the Audio Tool Bar on the Tracks screen. You can place the audio anywhere you designate and it defaults to the curser placement. You do have to watch carefull

I tried the Yamaha EZ AG and didn't like it and then switched to Midi Guitar 2 by Jam Origin which I found was much better. It is also a good way of pinpointing all your bad guitar playing habits because you have to play clean and precise to get the best results. You can probably download a trial version.

Hi Greg, your comment means a lot - thank you very much indeed!! Don't know whether I'm allowed to mention it here (as it's not BB) - you might like my 'Ronroco Calma' on Soundcloud, also soft & melodic? Hope you keep finding just the right songs for your great voice!! All the best in CA, Carl

It's a lovely song but the vocal doesn't sit in the mix - it's above and slightly to the left - but the latter could just be my ears.

I'm not sure of the purpose the snort at the beginning serves except to be a preview of the snort/sweep/glass sound in the verse (which is too loud to be honest), or to suggest symptoms of the disease. Other than that it's pretty cool.

Fbaulous stuff. The I'm not excited by the drums but they do their job unobtrusively enough. Bass is cool and REALLY consistent. Guitar licks n kickk really well. Vocals are well sorted for the song...personally I'd edit some of the uhs from the end of phrases but that's me - they give me the lounge singer vibe when & where ever I hear them. Very cool tracks.

Jump to new posts Can't create mandolin solo in _BGMEDLY.STY style? by Buttrey @ Yesterday at 07:53 PM

Greetings. I'm using the _BGMEDLY.STY style to create a bluegrass tune, and it's great. So I feel bad about asking this, but...the documentation claims that if you pick sub-styles g or h, you get a mandolin solo. I don't though: I get the same mandolin accompaniment regardless of the substyle I pick. Am I the only one? Has anyone else run into this? Whoops. Update: I just switched everything to substyles e and f, expecting guitar solo, and found mandolin. Does anyone use this excellent style? A
