Here is my latest song with Band in a Box: Same Old Road

I was then able to re-record the Audio track without having to overdub the Audio.

Lyrics

Here again down this old road
Longing for you all the time
Seems like I have been here before
Your promises dashed on the shore

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that would be divine

Yeah baby I'm walking down the same old road
Just thinking of you once again

Instrumental

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that it would be divine

How we danced on that balmy night
Well we danced till the morning light
We held each other so very tight
Baby yeah it felt alright

Fine work here! Very smooth flow, So if I understand correctly all of this was recorded, without leaving biab?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi PgFantastic,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes it was all recorded in BIAB using the Soloist spare track as the main vocal (by changing the Audio Tracks name to Same Old Road Soloist).
Then recording the backing in the Audio Track and adding Harmonies One up.

This saved me from any mistakes (although not all blush) as I could just re-record again keeping the good recording - does that make sense? - what I mean is that if the Audio on the Soloist track is good then I can leave that one alone and record the backing again. Phew...

George,
your voice always reminds me of Roy Orbison. I'd love to hear your version of PRETTY WOMAN

Hey George,

Very impressive doing this all in BIAB.

I like the groove and the Roy O. vibe too.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
