Dave, Wayne, Derochette, FJ, Captain, jptjptjpt, David C, Bob, Bluage, Peter, Steve, Ray, Marty, Scott, Robert, Thank you for giving this time, your kind comments and your support! It means a lot to me. FJ, Big thank you for suggestion! -- Captain, Thank you for pointing out "click" distraction. I think the click/clap issue is the drum "kit" I used. It is tweakable, I should be able to correct this. I am kind of new at drum programming Robert, Guitars are a mix of PG + N

J&B, Peter, Marty, Fun and creative collaboration. Janice at her best! She really is the heart of this tune. That middle guitar solo, or bridge or whatever it was (does it really matter?)...simply stunning!! Love those off chords! Marty, wonderful playing! Seems you are in high demand here Bud...Super! It amazes me how well you do your musical things without multi million dollar studios and army of co-writers and producers. Congrats on this cool song, and thank you for sharing. Misha.

Wayne, I admire your drive! You have quite a talent of writing true bread & butter Rock tunes. I see no issues with composition, vocals, instruments or mix. Stellar guitars! Listens very well. P.S. The only one thing I would do, if it was my mix... I would of ridded solo guitar were it kind of "talks" back to vocals, so they be at one volume plane. Just for fun of it. Thank you for sharing. Misha.

Cathie, you said that half of your work is done in a notation program and that you might need a few different tracks for your vocal. The easiest way for vocal is in RealBand. Since you are using ACW I will assume your notation is exporting audio, so try this: Export you notation's audi file. Open Realband and in the track window drag and drop your notation's audio file. Be sure to start the drop on measure 1 and set RB's tempo to match your notation's tempo. Open the chord window and click o

Bottom line - knowing where your files are saved on your disk is Lesson 1 on any DAW.

Mixup.Audio I have started using an online collaboration tool. It has a free version as well as different levels "Pro" versions. We have quite a few people in the User Showcase forum that collaborate with other members. I would suggest if you do collaborate have a look at this tool. You create a free account, download the plugin vst,aax etc and add it to your mixbuss. You can bounce a mix and upload it to your project folder on mixup.audio.

Jump to new posts Re: Un-resizable window when opening songs folder by Simon - PG Music @ Today at 03:33 PM

Which model of Macbook Pro is it? The 24" HP monitor you mentioned should be sufficient for the test, assuming it's 1440P or 1080P or lower. The 3440x1440 resolution on that LG monitor may be enough to cause the issue, but I think it revolves around macOS and it's "HiDPI" screen modes when used with a "Retina" screen - I don't think that monitor would necessarily qualify, though I could be wrong.

Seems to this oldster just starting out, that there are lots of upsides to ageing; you get more time if you`re lucky for creativity, idiosyncrasies are forgivable, you are hopefully a little streetwiser...that`s a song I might write, and will be more cheerful than this, which was written partly in a dream. Song of the Old Style is _PEACE.STY (Peacefully Stringed Ballad) RealTracks in style: ~2482:Bass, Acoustic, Bowed Held Ev 085 RealTracks in style: 2820:Harp, Rhythm ClassicalSlow8ths

James, Your lyrics are well balanced between the message and the personal. I like the build the morning to evening progression of the story adds. Interesting thoughts from Floyd on the tempo- (it does feel like it changes at about 1:00 and then slows at the close)- perhaps a little more clarity of the change would work, but the simple arrangement is just right.

Not sure if this is useful, but try the drop down menu: Windows > Notation > Event List Editor. Then look for a Program Change message in the MIDI data (you can use the Filter) You can also try the buttons menu: Misc. > MIDI > MIDI Monitor in BiaB which may show you what is being processed by the program.

Jump to new posts Re: How do I select a style for a song by MusicStudent @ Today at 11:14 AM

I call an error in description. 'The Sound of Silence [Simon & Garfunkel] [Folk] [4/4 ev 16 110]' Should not be "ev 16". When I change to ev 8, this simple adjustment results in sounds which are much more like the title tune. Sing the tune and you hear a eight note beat (despite Paul's fancy finger picking), not sixteenth notes. At least that's what I hear. I think this will get you much better search results.
