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.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
