Jump to new posts Re: Tempo change with F5 in absolute values by Matt Finley @ Today at 04:00 AM

Yes, the percentage change the second time is not the same as the first. I wonder if we could set what the starting tempo is and then have an ‘a tempo’ command available. Then tempos are relative, so if we decide to change the starting tempo we would not need to seek out places and do the math to restore the original tempo.

Jump to new posts Tempo change with F5 in absolute values by Brille @ Today at 03:09 AM

It would be very helpful to have the possibility to change the tempo with F5 not only by percentage steps, but also by absolute values. As an example: if I want to have a 30 % slower tempo for 4 bars, I enter -30 in the first of the four bar. This changes the tempo to 70% of the original tempo of the piece. To get back to exactly the original tempo, I would have to enter +142.8671 ... in to the fifth bar, which is not possible and not exact. It would be much better to specify a percentage in r

I had a listen to the original mix yesterday (didn't have time to comment) and the new mix this morning. Updated mix is better, vocals are now sitting where they should be I think. Very different from what I'm used to hearing from you, and I prefer your punk stuff to be honest, but this is cool too.

Once you set any of the first tracks (Bass, Piano, Guitar) to "Simple Arrangement" in the Track Settings Dialogue you cannot change them back. This does not appear to be a problem for tracks 5, 6 or 7. This is irrelevant of any Song Settings or General Settings regarding setting tracks/song to Simple Arrangement. Please advise how to fix this problem.

Thanks Deej. I think I worked on the mix longer on this one than any other. Either age is getting to me at last or I'm getting more picky. Vic

It is a sad story and you tell it very well Peter. Not sure about the voice doubling. For me it takes away the lonely man idea and he's not alone. Still good though, Vic

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
