Guenter,

you are without a doubt (in my mind anyway) one of the most innovative people on this forum, and maybe in this sector of the universe.

The stuff you come up with would NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS even occur to me, let alone find its way onto a recording by my hand!

You have so many techniques at your disposal that each of your offerings so far has been completely unlike the others, with the one exception (by design) being to use the synthetic voice as a theme.

I'm so impressed by your work that if you were a stock, I'd sell everything I own and use the money to buy as many shares of you as I could. OK, that's a little weird, so maybe I wouldn't do that after all. But I'd buy your CD.


BTW, which version of FLStudio do you use?

This is far, far removed from what I typically listen to....but I just can't keep from being captivated by it. Being somewhat of a tech geek I get drawn in from the technical perspective but then the rhythms and melodies hold my attention. Your last post resulted in me spending considerable time on the net reading about the software that you use. Simply fascinating. Look forward to the next one.

Hi Guenter,

How incredible is this song!!! Like Pat, there is no way in several lifetimes that I'd ever think of anything like what you come up with. Your ingenuity seems limitless. Every time I listen to your latest song, you surprise me! I'm a fan.

I just love listening to what you do. You're an outstanding musician whichever way I look at your music.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Guenter, agreed with everybody else.Good combination of BIB, looping (maybe) and whatever else you use to produce your songs.

Guenter

I've been fascinated with FLStudio ever since my son bought it several years ago. I love the songs people make with it, I admire the programming and design creativity that built such a unique product... but I've tried to learn it several times and it
just
doesn't
make
sense
to me

It reminds me of a MiniCooper. Cool car, full of innovative ideas. But on every other car in the world, you'll find a way (button or handle) to open the window somewhere just below the window. Nope, not on the Mini Cooper. NOTHING on a MC works the way it does on every other car.

On every other Windows-based program the top right corner of the window has buttons to minimize, maximize or close the program window. Not in FLStudio. I think it was probably FLSTudio that prompted me to invent the...

FRUSTRATION-O-METER
0____________/_100

In spite of my own inability to learn new things, I'm happy that YOU use that product, because it serves your ideas so well.

This is kind of Thomas Dolby would be doing today. Real cool! I like how you are hybridding sounds of classic rock guitar with Euro-Tech and some neat chord changes to make it all interesting.
I really like it!

Cheers!

Hi Mike, Eric, Josie, Ricke and Joanne,

thanks very much for your nice comments.

@Pat: I totally agree. FL Studio can't be used intuitively at all. My "frustration meter" shows about 80%. But you can do nice things with it and so I sometimes invest a lot of time to find out how to use an effect.
Every software uses the delete key to delete something. FL uses the right mouse button!!
Reaper is something I call intuitive. That's why I love it.

Guenter...

You have ceased to amaze me.

I used to be amazed at each of your submissions. And each for some different (new) reasons. The innovation. The imagination. The sheer JOY that listening to your music brings.

No longer.

I have simply come to EXPECT complete, absolute, utter excellence from you.

You can meld old and new like it's nothing. You can make machines sing. The only amazing thing is that you and your music are not at the top of some chart, somewhere....

Ho-hum...

The music and mix is fantastic -- and the vocal stuff is amazingly life-like (definitely close enough!). Outstanding work. The RT instruments really fit super well.

Hi Floyd, Bob and Kevin,

thank you for your nice comments.

@Floyd: Please don't put me under pressure. For me it's just fun to make music and I'm glad that my efforts are appreciated by some people. But I don't want to be under pressure to succeed.

TOO LATE!
you've already set the bar. Now we'll settle for nothing less!

(I don't think you have to worry about failing to create songs that we like.)

Nice! I love the clarity of the mix - it sounds great in headphones.

I hope PG Music adds more flute RealTracks in the near future!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
