1st of welcome to the forum.

Secondly this is a very good use of BIAB and of course I liked your song also. Other than the abrupt ending I think it was very good.

It is always a good idea to list some details about the song/mix i.e. what real tracks, styles and other instrumentation along with a lyric for to follow while listening to the tracks.

Anyway good effort and again welcome aboard just maybe the nicest forum on the net.

Later,

yeah, welcome to the forum! Isn't BIAB fantastic?
If you just started messing with it this week you sure made some good progress in a short amount of time!

I always like to see people using the music as a ministry. You're not alone.. there are several others here whose songs are faith-based. You'll fit right in!

(have you ever heard a song of the same name by Fernando Ortega? It's One of my all-time favorites...)

Bienvenido, Mivison !

Cmaj7, Fmaj7 wonderful chords to begin with....
To me its seems you are well into BIAB so we´ll all
eagerly wait for your full number !:))
Btw, I think that quite many of us record in their
bedroom (I sleep in my study). All I need is a zoom recorder,
my laptop (lenovo) and a good mixing program like f.i. mixcraft 6.
(Ok this is not pro equipment but I´ll manage) ! Good luck
with your next production !

Cheers
Dani

Not a bad "first time out" song. BB makes it so easy to do good music.

The ending needs work.... I actually felt it was only half way done.... needs another verse.

Keep on writing.

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: 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.

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.
