Hi all

A new song in tribute to my newborn grandson. Hello There

Lyrics from the web.

A mix of RT. I have added some strings, choir and solo piano and the vocal

Hope you like it. ANY comments are welcome.

Jan.

Jan, first and foremost congratulations on your new grandson.

Second what a great song! Loved the progression and the lyrics. The backing tracks were spot on!

You have a very good voice. But to nit-pick there is something about the vocals here. It may be the effects, don’t know. Maybe pitch correction? Either way you really don’t need that much IMHO. But they only slightly detract from an outstanding song.

Two thumbs up.

Nice song.
What do you mean with "lyrics from the web"?

Nice song, lovely vocals.

You've obviously got a good voice, so why not try some harmony work? I could imagine it coming into, say the last verse, to give it an extra lift at the end. Just an idea, but still a good track anyway.

ROG.

Thank you very much for taking your time to listen and your kind words.
Mario you' r right - I'm never satisfied with my vocal, so I guess I tend to tweak too much!
ROG it may be a good suggestion, I'll give it a try.
John, thanks, yes it has been a while

What a wonderful welcome to the world. Congrats on the newest edition to the family!

Pretty song Jan. Whatever's causing the TPain effect is a bit distracting - otherwise, like it lots.

Hi Jan,

A wonderful song - well written, arranged with skill and mixed superbly. I thought it was a very heartfelt tribute to your grandson.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. After listening to the song, I went back to check that you were actually from Denmark! I thought I must have misread that

Very moving, nicely done.... reminds me of a similar song I wrote, "Hello, Little Friend."

I like your voice quite a lot. And if it's overproduced, it's not by much. I hadn't listened to T-Pain, so I did, and whoa... the Danes do it much better.

Jan,

Congrats on the new grandson!

Also very good song, I really enjoyed it. Just FYI of late I have been doing quite a few songs welcoming in new family additions, including a couple of our own. With this said I would be very proud to have come up with what you have here.

Now start spoiling that little rascal!

Later,

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
