Hi Frank,

I really liked this! As soon as I started listening to it, it was like I was transported back in time to the 1920s/30s. Very authentic sounding to my ears. I'm not sure that I'd have tried the sax hard left but it worked in this piece.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

Its amazing to me the sounds the PG has allowed us to use
with the Realtracks.
As for the panning will check a bit later. Using internals as
melody/solo, I sometimes force bit of panning, but don't want the
performer to fall off the left side of the stage. May have left
default pan for the Sax in place. Will be more aware on next arrangement.

In the heat of the battle I left the default panning in place. -30 is bit much.
Would have set this to -10 or -15, depending on the sound. Will pay closer
attention next go round.


I usually put a song aside for awhile, then go back and listen.
You get too close to a piece when working on it.

I also like the Vintage or older Jazz styles better.

Thanks for your compliments!

Very nice. It would have been even cooler with some 20s sytle megaphone vocals. Nice use of BIAB.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Floyd, Mario,

Thanks for the compliments.

jptjptjpt,

Ya... I agree, but my voice is only passable, and need few weeks of
practice,practice practice before adding vocals. One of our members did a song few weeks
ago with "vocals of that age".
Thanks for comments.

David,

There was a day when bourbon would have been a part of my day, but
after many years ago, it walked away from me...

Thank you for nice comment.

Nice, easy, comfortable...BUT...it deserves a vocal! It's too nice a groove not to have some kind of lyric to it...however, very enjoyable.

Frank,

This is very nice and smooth! Like Noel said, it takes me back to the 20's/30's (not that I've ever actually been there! ).

I really enjoyed this!

Steve

Tano,

Would be great icing, except if mine....??????
Thanks for compliments.

Steve,

The vintage and old styles contribute nicely to the smooth aspects, but the
real stars are the RealTracks. The BIAB and RB software with RT'S are such a joy.

Thanks for nice comments.

Mootsman and John,

Thanks to both of you.

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
