This is one of my first songs I did after started playing again. I redid the guitar track and added an organ track with leslie to mix the sound up a bit.

This is done starting with BIAB then finished with RealBand.
Bass is BB Bass 34 Electric Bass(Finger)
Drums are Real Drums- Rock Even8. I pushed the drums up to max to bring them out more.

Added Rhythm Guitar, Two Organ Tracks and the Guitar Lead Track.

That's a very atmospheric piece Scott, nice playing on the organ and Strat! Reminds me of Peter Green's work on some tracks on his 'In The Skies'.

I'd have liked the drums up a bit, they're barely audible which is odd as you say you had to put them to max.

Thanks for the comments on song and the suggestions for the mix. I have been implementing most of the suggestions I have been getting in the forum.

I think it maybe my sound card. On my new songs I like to use a bass style and a drum style from BIAB and the bass is usually very strong in the mix but the drums seem to get walked on. Will see if I can boost the drums with the effects in ReadBand...

Much appreciated
Scott

You do have the bass and drums on separate tracks? You shouldn't need FX, just more volume on the drums track and less on the others.

Nice spacey tune....

Drums, as has been pointed out, are too far back in the mix..... B3 could probably stand to come down a few db.

I'd also look into some of the soloist tracks in Real Band..... they could have taken some solo's in there and added more variety to the tune. Piano, Sax, etc....

Nice job though. I like the song.

Thanks Herb and John. I am going to spend sometime with the mixer in RealBand. I also have Cubase for mixing wave files but I prefer the RealBand mixer as it is more visual. I try to keep the input signal for the live music at the top of the green and flickering into the yellow so it doesn't clip. When I added the organ track it had the same input settings as my guitar tracks but came out a bit louder. Getting the sweet spot is quite elusive..

I like to mix in Sonar. The sound I hear from the monitors is exactly what I get in the exported file.

Mixing is a learned skill.... the more you do it with good gear, the better you get.

Dani and Robert Thanks you for your comments they are appreciated. This are my favorite tone settings for my guitars. The sound they make go right through me. The music can tune a not so good day into a really good day....

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!

We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.
