Hi all Well this is such an emotive subject, it must be a subject that means a lot to you, or you wouldn’t be writing it. So for what its worth write from your heart not your brain, rules can be broken so don’t try to hard to make it conform to any. Just let it evolve and unfold in a way that expresses your feelings. Always helped by slipping into a minor now and then, but then, I have not heard your music. Just my thoughts. Mike

Hans, J&B..thanks for the kind comments. Unfortunately, I lost all of the initial build info on this when my HD crashed. This track was made by adding onto an almost-finished WAV file.

Hi biab members, Thanks to Dcuny,Greg Johnson, Bawb and the great team Janice and Bud, I want to thank you for your always positive and encouraging comments. In recent times, I have had a little run-of-the-mill related to health problems in my family members and this is the reason why I abandoned my listening with the nice members who were kind enough to testify. a comment on my compositions. I still want to apologize for this lack of politeness but now everything comes into the normal course

Thanks floyd jane. It's a fine line here, with my "singing" ... I have to sing a little but not too much, otherwise it sounds dreadful - at least much of the time! Here, I think I got away with it ... ;-) Yeah, I was wondering what to do with that steel solo ending. I didn't want it to solo for an extra bar, as the option is given for it to by BIAB, because I was worried about harmonies clashing - it's happened in the past. But, if I don't give it that option, then yes ... its ending

Very nice lyrics, simple with a clear message but still giving room for thoughts. The picking guitar has very nice sound and fits the overall folk mood. Good selection of instruments and the arrangement has enjoyable variation. Great vocals too. Janne

Free NOW, but will it stay free forever Harv? Do you think that once it gets extremely popular they will start charging? That seems to be how Micro$oft does things. Zoom works fine, and all those horror stories of security problems were presumably overly dramatic. Possibly even started by Micro$oft. I am on Zoom daily, sometimes more than once a day and I have never had anybody hack one of my meetings and blow up my office as the rumors said. "They" were allegedly getting into compute

Tryuk, As you know the iRig keys 2 is a midi controller. It connects to your MacBook Pro either through a Lightning or OTG to Micro-USB cable. Band-in-a-Box for Mac uses Apple's Core MIDI to add midi controllers to the computer for use by the program. You may want to follow along on page 342, Chapter 14 - MIDI Setup, of the Band-in-a-Box for Mac user manual for step-by-step guidance. If your iRig keys 2 works with your DAW then your computer has already recognized the controller. Go to &qu

I thought you might be interested in my new video, I made Love To An Angel. which features inspirational quotes about sensuality with my song of the same name. It's part of my "inspirational quotes with music" series. The video is already popular on many inspirational Facebook groups. All the tracks are Band In A Box, except the bass track and solo are my bass player Paul Tillery and the drums are superior drummer [img]https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wBRAXQDkmYidtYSFO

First of all thank you for your help. I am running the new version of PT. I did exactly what you said and I can't get the Korg file to show up under patches or when I load a midi song I don't see the Korg patches with the other ones like I am suppose to. In less I am missing something, the new version of PT does not let you convert a PAT to an INI.

Hi Bawb. You can sure sell a song. I find my self looking forward in anticipation to anything you post and this song is no exception . My personal opinion is that you sound like you are singing in a different room to the rest of the "band" which results in the "band" overshadowing the listening experience somewhat .With your talent you should be front and center ! Perhaps try panning the individual instruments and giving them some reverb to give them some depth while placi

Words like sophisticated and classy come to mind. The both interesting and captivating lyric is delivered in an intimate up front (but not too much so) and convincing manner. And it's all wrapped in a mix that sounds, subtle, nuanced and sets a good soundstage on the monitors. Enjoyed it! J&B PS: It'd be nice to know what RT's, etc., were used in the production.
