Hi all.
After the Xmas excitement here's a piece to quieten everything down.

A nice chill-out piece from my collection
Hope you like it.

The quiet sections made it interesting, creating a bit of anticipation.

Please, would you let me know which pad-sound you have used?
Really a nice piece.

Hiya.
I used the Korg Legacy Vsti combo for this piece,the Polysix Pad sound was I think either the influx pad.As it was written in 2009 I think it's hard to remember exactly which one anyhow I'll have a look in my notes and see if I can find out.
Yes I'm happy to see this piece being well liked,it is a firm favourite of mine,it was sequenced again using Muzys and was written in about 40 minutes!

A later piece like this was actually recorded by professional players in their private studio which was a big thrill for me,although it had to be quite significantly changed to be played by proper musicians!

Thanks for all the positive feedback.

Hi Riccled,

a very contemplative tune.
The guitar sounds to me like samples. Am I right?

Love the pad and mood of the music.

I think the guitar notes are too loud and upfront. Where the pad takes the melody at 2:20, that's what I wanted, beautiful.

The chord/key change at 5:06, I love that.

A live recorded guitar on nylon strings mixed lower would really work well. As an alternative, using some patch with less attack and less volume.

Digging it, thanks for sharing.

Hi!

This is the first time we've listened to you...we just got here about a week ago. This is a very, very nice piece! This evokes anticipation. What we both thought as we listened was it would be a super piece to play behind the metamorphosis of a creature from one stage to another (as on The Science Channel). Or, the evolution of a space entity such as a star. Loved the lows on the cello!

It was a great listen...thanks! And wishing you great things in 2014.

Al & Di

Hi Guenter
No its not a sampled sound I don't think ,its one of the presets on the Korg Legacy Cell vsti,I think its sharp tone contrasts well with the warm sensuous pad!

And I'd really like to know where BIAB is on all this??
confused
Because this is a Showcase for those who use PG Music related software.
Not enough dynamics in it for me and I don't think for Professional musicians either to want to copy / record either.

Not unless they are BIAB related please!!! smile
I get the feeling that you are using this Forum for your own purposes and not in the Spirit of the PG Shwocase rules.

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.
