State Lines

Howdy all,
Last spring I posted a jazzy/country/blues tune (all RT's) that was a vocal experiment for Janice. I have recently remixed and mastered it. I've been involved in mixing at one time or another since the 60's but when floyd suggested I get Ozone it opened up new vistas for us. We've been slowly mastering all our BIAB/Garageband projects and this is the latest. I was a little dubious at first given how much buzz there is to the effect that one shouldn't master one's own material -- but I took that with a grain of salt and forged on. Mastering turns out to be, like mixing, "never finished, just abandoned!" It has been interesting as it gives you (or at least Janice and I) an opportunity to really explore how the completed mix sounds. Small tweaks in mastering often seem to make a huge difference in the sound of the mix.

Although previously posted (my first repeat) I thought that some of you might want to hear how it sounds after the remix and mastering. The below link to the original post has info re the RealTracks used. mix, etc., if interested.

Thanks for listening!

hey Janice & Bud...

Now that's Country Jazz at it's finest...with just a slight hint of the Blues. Janice's voice really sells this one for us. She pouts it over the top!!! And the music is great, too. What's not to like? Great job, guys!

Janice Took the blues out of bluegrass and put it all in this one. Bud, great job on the editing. This one sounds just terrific. Tom

Speaking of crossing lines, this is just a great mix of country, blues and jazz influences. Thank you for sharing.

Yeah - terrific is the word!
This new Master sounds fuller and more defined but I liked the other one too. Good singing and great arranging does that to you.
Happy New Year, Janice and Bud.
We're just about to go to our NYE gig.
cheers

Thanks man. Janice so often say how should I sing this (write lyrics/she the melodies) and I just say "the way you feel it." We have an incredible 32 year marriage so she's like a method actor -- sorta sinks into the story and plays the part. Works well with the breakup songs I tend to write smile

Thanks you two. This type of music is waaay out of our wheelhouse but it was really fun to see what we could come up with. It's great that y'all dug it.

Tommy, that is really cool you said that. There is so much blues in bluegrass. Takes a while to "get it" but it's there. Glad it worked well for you. Thanks!

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
