Used 65 PopPiano 12-8 Ballad (65RS) which was individually transferred, track by track into Pro Tools 9. Song or whatever you´ld like to call it has just added some EZmix plugging and choir is done with TC VoiceLive2. Took less than two hours to make this demo.

Hi Carl,

Congratulations on getting your first post up. I enjoyed the listen. I've never used this Realtrack. I've got to say that I'm impressed.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you next do!

Regards,
Noel

Hi Carl,

I also congratulate you for your first song post here! I enjoyed listening. A very engaging tune. I couldn't quite make out the words in many places, but that's probably just my "(not too) old" ears!

Keep up the good work!

Steve

What an outstanding first post!

Nice backing track and a super choir effect! I really liked the vocal however to nit-pick I thought at times it needed to be a little more out front. Not much just a tad, maybe with some light compression.

Even if you don’t change a thing it is still a winner.

Hi Carl,
Really nice first post. I have to admit when I saw the title I was expecting hiphop. I had a little trouble making out some words but overall I thought it was engaging. Very lush sound with the choir. Looking forward to more.

Hi Carl,

Very well done. I like the melody and the laid back feel of this song.

Well you've done it now... you'll have to keep up the quality for your next songs

Keep em coming.

Best regards
George

Thanks all. I think I should stick to Swedish, maybe you understand the lyrics better then.

Despite any shortcomings, very enjoyable. Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to future songs from you.

And there's no reason to stick with Swedish - your English is excellent! The mix (large reverb, vocals in the back, an occasional bit of too much bass from mike proximity) is where the problem of understanding the words came from. Some small tweaks would take care of that.

Good work Frans, (why is everyone calling you Carl? Did I miss something?)
It reminded me of Herb Alpert's 'This Guy's In Love With You' in terms of the song's feel and changes. Your lyrics have some good images, and that's with English not being your first language! Forgive me, but the rhyming of 'fool' and 'toll' didn't work for me, especially as it's a chorus end line. But all in all this is a good effort and you've got some good recording skills going on there.

John

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
