Hi Peter & Leon, Definitely in the Folk-Singer-Songwriter vein. The intro sounded very much like a Dylan track, until Leon started to sing - he sings way better than Dylan! The guitars sounded great and the whole backing had a coherence which was very pleasing and easy to listen to. Excellent lyrics too and a nice clean mix to finish it off. Enjoyed. ROG.

Superb. Trademark sensitivity from you, wrapped up in - at first, at least - perhaps deliberately ambiguous and cryptic lyrics. You are certainly one of the very best poets on this site, both lyrically and musically. And: your songs are like balm to wounds. Whenever I feel like screaming internally, I know that, if you've put a new song on here, I'll be calmer (if not necessarily happier) about my lot. Acoustic balm for the soul. Thank you.

Jump to new posts Tweaking a style by Angelomusic @ 20 minutes 9 seconds ago

Hi all, Firstly I do apologize for this very noobish question. I've been trying to find the answer online but I might not have looked in the right direction. So please, forgive me for that simple question. I have a style that I like but I would like to add some vocals (or it could be an instrument, I guess that the process is the same). From the main BIAB windows what shall I do to add something else from another style ? I went into the mixer settings and saw that my style has 2 grey slots (u

First of all: sending up prayers and sending you the very best of thoughts for your health condition. Secondly: love the song. And love the faith with which it's clearly done - it exudes from the song. Thank you so much for sharing it with us - it's good to reminded, in life (especially at tough moments) that there IS a Father, and you communicate this so well through the song. Thanks!

Jump to new posts Celtic styles by Paul2open @ 25 minutes 4 seconds ago

Hi biab. Having used biab for a few years I'm now getting a bit frustrated with the lack of new celtic styles. How about John Doyle? He is probably the best loved and most popular Irish guitarist and bouzouki player in the world. He plays with EVERYBODY! Would be great to get him onboard. Just saying

Great job! The sax is superb. The rest is a wonderful groove - do they call this ska? I'm useless at styles and their labels, so forgive me if I'm talking rubbish (what's new? haha). And yes, it's a tad loud, but I just lowered the volume on my notebook - an easy fix ;-) Love it. Had me tapping my feet from beginning to end.

ROriginally Posted By: Don GaynorNot a song but two Canadian Folk artists that do a lot of sea and fish songs. Search separately on YouTube for Stan and Garnett Rogers. I especially like Stan's "Tiny Fishes For Japan" a sad commentary on Canada's dying fishing industry. Wow, that was surprisingly moving. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my word. STUNNING - and that's the least said. Minimalism to die for, as someone above mentioned ... and, let me say something right here ... the LYRICS ... wow. Because the musical side of the song is so well written, here, the lyrics may not be as noticed by some ... but, my word, you know how to write a lyric which strikes a chord with your audience - just as well as you write the music. Love it. Thank you for this, I needed this this afternoon.

Another private track that I'm only sharing on here for now. Reason for all the privacy is: I'm thinking of writing a musical (or somesuch soundtrack album, at least!) :-) - so need to keep some tracks private for now, i.e. not in the public domain. This is one of them ... it would have been perhaps best if I'd put it into the context of the rest of the potential future musical, but - even so, on its own ... what do you think of it? I'm beyond grateful if you find the time to listen and even, pe

Quote:Andrew, Your suggestion is a bit easier said than done (see below) but before I follow it, may I ask, -- have you ever heard of this sort of behaviour before? i.e. BIAB or another program glitching and deleting itself? -- if I do follow your advice, and the check reports that the disk is fine, what would you then suggest that I do?

Eric, I'm always envious of your guitar - sound and playing. Such a joy to listen to. Have to say I did not care for the muted trumpet sound - it had a bit of "harshness" to it - your use of the RealTrack sax is always a good balance. Just an opinion, of course... others might dig it... Still. That guitar! Sweet. fj

Jump to new posts In Acid Pro, the plugin shows up as available, but will not open by Andrew - PG Music @ Yesterday at 11:30 PM

Acid Pro 10 supports VST2 and VST3, however currently the VST2 must be used due to a compatibility issue. Here are some tips for using the VST2 in Acid: 1. When running the Band-in-a-Box (DAW Plugin) installer, you should select the checkbox to install the VST2 (64bit). This is not selected by default. 2.

RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!
