Hi Mel,

That sounded very professional to me. A well structured, thoughtfully composed, very easy to listen to instrumental.

Regards,
Noel

Very nice indeed. It would be very kind of you if you can list the sounds/styles used on BIB. Thanks for posting.

Mel,

Very nice arrangement and mix. Like the feel of the music.

The variations you put into the arrangements were excellent.

Agree with Mike, instrumentation is very nice to know.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Regarding the requests for BIAB styles and instrumentation, I wish I could describe specifically what I used, but because of the way I use BIAB, it's hard to retrace my steps.

I used one of the piano ballads for the basic instrumentation in the main body of the song. But I tend to mix and match individual instrument tracks from different styles. And even within individual instrument tracks, I may splice midi from different styles.

The guitar solo was from RealTracks #146, JazzFunkBreezy (Carlos Arellano). I used several VSTs, but mostly Dimension Pro. I hope that's at least a little helpful. Thanks!

Mel

Excellent work Mel. Thoughtfully composed, arranged and engineered. I really enjoyed this. Thanks.

(There's a cymbal crash at 2:08 without its accompanying kick drum beat. How's that for listening intently!)

John

Wow, John, that's pretty intense listening! The missing kick drum beat was intentional, of course, for creative effect. (Actually, I only wish I could hear things that well; I'd be a much better producer.) Thanks!

Mel

Hi Mel, I'm not Carlos, well...I am his clon, my name is RT # 146, a computer Band-in-a-Box RealTrack creature, I renderized myself in the real world to coming and say thank you for using me and my partners grin

Mel, I enjoy your song so much, a very nice and thoughtfully composed musical production. Touching and soulful intro driving to a nice sweet chill out atmosphere

Thanks for post and sharing.

Carlos

HI Mel,

This is the first time we've had the pleasure of listening to one of your songs. Good to "meet" you!

Absolutely beautiful and fabulously arranged and mixed. Don't know what else to say that hasn't been said already. It's a wonderful piece with multiple variations that compliment rather than conflict. Nicely done!

Alan & Di

Thoroughly enjoyed that piece Mel. The bass sounds real good to me and I wish I could get the drums to sound like that also. Very tastefully done. Cheers.

+1.

I don't know how you EQ'd the drums, but those cymbals sounded crisp and clear:)

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: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
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: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
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.
