Here is the second track I have been working on of late and now from a CD project which has been renamed "Pipe Dreams", its a very simple acoustic guitar backed flute instrumental.

Its was original a saxophone track but after experimenting with flute sounds on the first track "Palace of Splendour" I thought I would try it as the lead on this.

It was a track written for my wife (incidentally she's not called Polly), and was composed in BIAB 2013 using DRDUN Slow Rock Ballad Style with two finger picking realtracks, lead once again provided by garageband a flute patch and my DH800.

Very Pretty Adrian. The flute fits really well, I think you made the right choice.

Adrian,

I agree with Josie. The flute was definitely the right choice. It's a very pleasant and restful sound you have happening.

Best regards,
Noel

Intro sounded a bit Eagles but blended so well with the flute. Flute most enjoable but a bit loud for my taste.

I was listening to this and I thought to myself .... Man this sounds really really familiar..... then it hit me.....

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=9414184

Yup... one of my very own songs from 2010.

I'll have my lawyer call your lawyer and we can do lunch. ;-)

I think the flute would be better served a few db lower in the mix.

Just curious, did you come up with the melody or did you let BB generate the melody?

Hi

Thanks for the comments, the melody was part BB generated and part original, the part that is the same tune as yours was the BB generated part the chorus part of the song was original generated but I didnt get the feel I wanted so was re-written around the same chord structure.

Also the second part of the song had the chords tweaked a good deal where as the first part was pretty much BB.

I have to say Im loving your tune although its a little weird hearing the same part of the melody in the different context.

Seems we both have an ear for a strong melody, was that part in your song generated?

Also agree flute is a slight to outfront in the mix so will adjust this.
Cheers

Adrian

Yup.... BB generated it and played it with a goofy sounding midi something or other, I adapted it to be played on guitar live.

Therein lies the danger in using BB melodies. Could you imagine if you and I both had that same/similar melody in songs that were used in a public manner (film or TV).... ? Some jackleg lawyer would be looking a lawsuit for real.... remember My Sweet Lord was over 3 notes.

As long as I have been working with BB, I have noticed that it will generate similar melodies occasionally, and since the software you have and the software I have is essentially the same software, it stands to reason that using the melodist WILL generate the same melodies a bit more often than is comfortable.

I have, as a result of noticing this, muted the MELODY line in BB so that it does NOT influence my creative thought with it's own computer generated melody line.

Interesting .....

Very cool, nice work! Yes, just pull the flute back in the mix a bit.

A very relaxing, nostalgic tune. The flute is dreamy. Thanks for posting.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
