Hi rsdean, Composition that lends itself to reverie. It's soft, vaporous and our mind lets itself be carried away by your lyrics. Well done.. Jani

Hello Janice Bud and Peter, Composition very rich in orchestration. The mix is ​​impeccable. And the tone of Jani’s voice is still so pleasant. I also like Peter's guitar playing. Everything is smooth and well done. Jani

Hi B.d. Thomas, I thank you for your appreciation. I paid attention to your comments but found nothing unusual. Maybe on the backing vocals, I should put an EQ on the high frequencies. Thank you again for your advice. Jani

Hi dcuny, Thank you for appreciation. Ps: I saw that other composers on this forum also used the synth V. This soft vocal is interesting

Hi Elliot, Very pretty, well-constructed melody. The singers' voices are pleasant. Synth V is astonishing in its possibilities. I appreciated. Well done Jani.

Re: Old Empty Shoebox David Snyder 49 minutes ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Man, this is great! I like both the musical hook and of course that empty shoe box hook is just wonderful for the lyric. This is one great sound and tune all around. Man I tell you Tommy, you could probably write a song about an old empty toilet paper roll and it would sound great. I'm not trying to egg you on or anything or say that you might want to think about this, but all I'm saying is man you could probably write a song about an old empty toilet paper roll that someone forgot to replace and it would sound awesome. Not that I think you should actually do it but I think you could write a song about an empty toilet paper roll sitting there and it gives a person some memories of the last sheet of toilet paper that they used in their life before they became so broke they had to start using the newspaper or tree leaves because America was in such bad shape economically or something. Yeah I'm not saying you should do something like that, but all I'm saying that man is as much talent as you got you could probably write a song about the decline of America just by writing about an empty toilet paper roll sitting there in an abandoned gas station with a person sitting there wondering where all the good stuff went to, while the creaky old metal door of the dirty gas station bathroom is wide open and they're looking out over a desperate landscape of an American apocalypse and an old empty toilet paper roll while some guy is sitting there without any toilet paper strumming his guitar writing a song about America. I'm not saying that you should actually do that but man I know that you could, just write a song about an old empty toilet paper roll.

Re: 2023 User Showcase Awards.... Congratulations to.... musician17 51 minutes ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
This is ever so kind. Whatever I may say, beyond "thank you", it has already been said by many others. Nevertheless, I am indeed immensely, immensely grateful. This is not just a tool, however brilliant, for us musicians ... this is a lifeline. To create is my life, and (I think) everyone's on this forum. Take away creativity from us, and we literally wilt away. You have not only created what I regard as simply the best electronic musically creative tool available anywhere, these days (none of my songs would exist, even in the "in-the-making" phase, without Band-in-a-Box), but - through your immense kindness in offering these awards to us - helped us all stay creative and even reward our creativity. I am, therefore, humbly and eternally grateful, even if my own words will never express that quite adequately enough. THANK YOU.

Re: I'm Sorry, Little Child musician17 56 minutes ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Mario: yes, I think that, one way or another, I must indeed find a new mic - or make the old one somehow work with this laptop. One way or another smile - but I cannot use the laptop's own mic, that much is clear. Thanks so much for listening to this new song of mine! David Cuny: thanks! I'll change the mic, though, because it makes me sound real bad, I think! Ron: thank you. Ever so kind! Bob: that's such a high compliment - and, coming from an artist like yourself, that's really made my day! Thank you! floyd: thanks for the tip!!! I will see what I can do about the sibilance, but I don't think it was such a problem with my old mic ... no idea why, but I need to deal with it, either way smile Ed: long time no see. Good to see you're well, and thank you for your thoughtful comment! Alan: thank you. It really was a song that I felt I simply had to write.

Re: Getting a Gig Notes Norton 59 minutes ago Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I owe a lot to Peter Gannon. When I started writing aftermarket styles for BiaB, it was on the Atari computer. I took a classified ad in either Keyboard or Electronic Musician magazine offering the disk for sale. Peter Gannon called, and offered to convert it to the IBM format (Windows) so I could sell to the biggest BiaB audience. This act of kindness set me on the track for my part-time business (my main source of income is from gigging). Since then, I have continued to support BiaB with my software and word of mouth, encouraging other musicians on other forums to give BiaB a try. When writing aftermarket products for BiaB, I do my best not to compete with PG Music, but to enhance and support BiaB. Notes ♫

I first used BiaB when it was available on the Atari, and I miss Russell and Gary doesn't frequent here as much as he used to. Rharv still posts a lot. Things change. A lot of folks are gone, and a lot of new ones are here. Some, like Mac are gone to the great gig in the sky. Notes ♫

Re: Extra Styles packs, macOS versions? Matt Finley 1 hour ago Forum: Band-in-a-Box for Windows Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I haven’t had a Mac in many years, but my understanding is that the style files should just copy over. I think you may be asking about the RealTracks that are called by those style files. The Windows version uses .WMA files. These would need to be converted. The .WAV files of the audiophile version, if you have that, will work on the Mac.

Re: Looking for OLDER forum members from the 90's Matt Finley 1 hour ago Forum: Off-Topic Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Welcome back. The ‘joined’ dates associated with some of us who were here in the mid-1990s are not accurate because PG Music changed Forum software in the summer of 2000. The old posts, and post counts, were not preserved. Russell became very involved with model airplanes if I recall correctly. His interest shifted away several years ago. He gave us a lot of chuckles, and served as the model for the Ivan sociology experiment. Gary stopped out for a while, but returned. He remains one of the MIDI experts here. Rharv is still active and has always been one of the most knowledgeable posters here.

Congratulations to everyone on the Showcase! You folks at PGMusic are truly the ones to be congratulated. We get to play and you all work to make our play much better, much more fun, and if we ask for your help, you always give it as if we are the reason you wake up in the morning. hehe. AND you bring this incredible collection of creative and helpful music makers together to help, support and encourage one another. If the whole world was designed and run like PGMusic, what a wonderful world it would be. My favorite advances in the 2024 version are the Tracks View and all that can be accomplished there, the extended ways for partial regeneration, how all Utility Tracks are now editable on the Bar Settings, the floating windows that work seamlessly with the Chord Sheet, and of course the (F7) MultiPicker. Oh, yeah, and the increased speed. Thanks

Well, I'm not intentionally trying to make them small smile I spend WAY more time trying to make my vocals sound halfway decent than I do with a vocal track from Chris, hers are easy 'cause they sound great even with no processing. But, I'll keep plugging away at it wink Thanks for all the support over the years, floyd, very much appreciated!
