Bit out of my genre, albeit like most type's of music.
Did something different this time.
Used the F5 key in BIAB to "Mute" & "Back to Normal" for Sax and Trumpet
tracks.

Then using Realband did some number of gain changes. Felt this
was lot simpler than making all the changes in the audio files.

Used PG Dynamics with gain of 2 and rest normal settings.
Used Sonitus Multiband with Normal Master Medium preset.
used MStereoExpander with Full preset.
Used K-meter Normal with peak display
Also had to cut back the Full Mixer output a bit.
Also Panned sax left -10
Also Panned Trumpet right 10
Was trying to simulate where the two entities might be located.

Hi Frank,
Sounds good. The only thing I would change would be the drums. That particular drum style is a special one, which is a 5/4 time sig, and shouldn't be used with 4/4 time sig styles.

Peter,

Thank you for compliments.

I did not like the drums when mixing, but didn't know about
the 5/4 signature. Just thought cause it was original part
of the style, would use it. My ears did not lie, but
simply did not know what was wrong.
Next time will read my own posting bit better.

Will fix bit later today...

Completed drum changes as Dr.Gannon recommended.

Within Jazz realm, not sure of drum levels, so set bit lower than
would with country mix.

Used:

RealDrums in Song: JazzOlder^1-a:Brushes , b:Brushes Lively

With Jazz, its tough to select which set is "best"

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.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
