Hi Hans, Thanks for all your very interesting comments. I'm a bit opposite - I started out with Rock and Roll and ended up in my old age with Blues and Jazz. Best Regards Nigel

Hi Dan, Good song, excellent mix and vocals. Unusual placement of drums on the left but it works really well - worked for the Beatles also. Best Regards Nigel

Mario's suggestion is good, and one you should follow. You are correct to say that I'm not aware of why those changes were made. But I am only a user, just like you. Contact PG Music Support. After all, it's their program.

Thanks. Another consideration is that you can get adapters for ports too. For example you may see a card with a mix of HDMI/Display Port/DVI/VGA ports, you can usually get the correct adapter to make them all HDMI. Good luck on your continued search.

Wow, what a live mood, nice message needs homely stadium jamming feel. Fun song going beyond expectation once again. Powerful vocals & the gospel choir sounds amazing. The solo guitarist sounds like Prince reborn. The mix is lush and spacious! Janne

Imaginative and original subject. Lovely percussions, the drum selection is also very good. The sitar creates very cool otherworldly mood. The melody is very strong and has my favorite Celtic vibe which is supported by Scott's guitar playing at its best. Enjoyed also Robert's warm vocal and the spacious mix. Janne

Joah, danke, Brille. Alles etwas unbefriedigend...

Hi Brad, BIAB has a "Find" function called "Song Finder" if you click on the lower half of Song Picker. I've never used this function before now. One of its options is to find text in song files but I cannot get it working tonight. Because I'm unfamiliar with this function, I've referred it to the development team to see if it needs fixing. In the meantime... I successfully used an unregistered version of "Sublime Text" to find a specific word in a BIAB file. Thi

RealBand is a Windows only application. But the same steps in the above video for drag/drop can be done with most DAWs. You can test this with Garageband on Mac computers, or drag the file from the drop station to your Desktop.

Quote:I also am a guitarist whom also plays bass. A guitarist learning bass can be a very good thing or a very bad thing. While playing bass you MUST think like a bassist, ALWAYS in the pocket with the kick and snare, and not like a guitarist, who has liberties to do as he wishes when it come to timing and phrases. Unless you are in a Prog Rock band. Seriously though..... if you play guitar even reasonably well, you should have a basic understanding of the bass. It's simply one octave l

Sounds too complicated and problematic to me to use BT. As someone walking down the street, If I have to stop, pull out my phone, go to settings, connect to the BT signal, put in my ear buds.....all just to listen.... I'm probably just going to keep on walking. Wouldn't it be better to simply use a small speaker setup and let everyone hear the music? You're going to have a higher percentage stop and listen and maybe throw a few dollars in the hat that way. Unless of course, it's illegal to
