Eric,

As always, your guitar sound is superb. I thought your guitar licks were very tasteful in this one.

May just be me, but the midi sounds for the other lead instrument (I'm assuming it was the muted electric guit) didn't really work that well for me. It sounded too dated to me. Others may love it, though, so take that with a grain of salt. I thought most of the other midi sounds were pretty good.

A nice song, though!

Steve

Hi, "F.M.M."...

I like everything about "Passing Through". It's a nice title that fits the mood of the song. The melody is attractive and has an airy, upbeat feel; the rhythm section moseys on down the road with a leisurely strut; the "changes" -- especially between the verses -- are beautiful, and the strings provide a nice, breezy cushion for the rest of the instruments to float on.

You're an interesting composer, and I like your sound.

Hi Eric,

You're definitely the forum's master of this style of smooth jazz. It's always a pleasure to listen to you play the guitar. Your tone is always rich and warm.

I'm really impressed with JABB after hearing this. The bass, in particular, was excellent. I'm going to have to do some experimenting. I have JABB but I haven't used it a great deal.

I'm curious, did you try this mix with a single Realtrack (or maybe Realdrums) at all? I've found that sometimes, just a single Realtrack in a midi mix can lift the sound to whole new levels. Please don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this sound (to my ears). I'm simply curious.

As already stated, it's always a pleasure to hear you.

All the best,
Noel

eric - vey well done. your guitar is stellar - as always. I agree with Steve on the midi instrument sounding dated. But I did like the way you developed the melody with that instrument and followed with your guitar... floyd

I like the overall tune.

The lead sound that you used... sounds like electric piano or something... oh, just looked at the OP... muted electric guitar. Obviously a midi patch.

I really liked the sound of the live guitar when you brought that in somewhere around the 1:30 point...

IMHO, you should have used live guitar in the entire song. Perhaps mix up the tone between clean and fat disto...

nice job though..... Liked it.

Nice mellow jazz and, as usual, REALLY fine guitar -- the playing and the tone. I agree with others...throw some RT's and a RD in there!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
