We recorded the song London Town, it's a song about how 2 people met in London.
We used the Brooks and Dunn style.
The following tracks were used:

Bass guitar:RealTrack 519: Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 120
Piano:Instrument: 2 Bright Piano (midi)
Drums:RealDrums Nashville Even 8
Guitar:Instrument 26 Acoustic Guitar(midi)
Strings:Instrument: 28 Clean Electric Guitar (midi)

For the midi tracks we used an edited version of the Magic SF Soundfont.
The electric guitar solo was played on an Squier Stratocaster.
Sequencer: Cubase Elements 7

We hope you like this song, any comments appreciated.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie

Had to listen as London was mentioned grin (I've worked in London most of my life). The song and harmonies reminded me of some early beautiful south songs.

Really enjoyed it.

Like the footage of the video, fits the song well; the vocal work is superb for both of you and the production sounds great thanks for sharing!

Great stuff!! Great vibe and excellent production and vocals! Love the somewhat retro sound (I'm a product of the 60s and 70s). Looking forward to more. Take care. Greg

Anne-Marie and Rob,

A terrific sound. Nice production and mix! Wonderful vocals - and harmonies...

A first post, but obviously, not your first recording/production - sounds very "seasoned". Well done.

Welcome!

Mighty fine tune, good singing and I like duets, adds some variety. Nice lead break, too. Welcome to the forum and hope to hear more from you all. The video made me a little dizzy, though (ha, ha). I stuck to the music!

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie ...

Welcome to this great forum! Hope you enjoy it here as much as Di and I do.

Great song and video. Everything about this is excellent. Harmony is fabulous and the arrangement is great!

Di and I both thought it sounds like something Dire Straits might have done but with somewhat different instrumentation. Thanks for a great listen! Look forward to more ....

Indeed.... I agree with the previous comments.

In particular the harmonies are really well done and thought out.

The mix, overall sounds pretty good for the speakers I'm listening on.

Good job on the writing. I liked a few things in the lyrics.... nice colorful "painting of a picture with words"....

Well done and a really nice debut in the user forum. I got a feeling we'll be hearing more good stuff from you guys in the future.

Yet another hi and welcome to the forums!

I agree with everything that has been said thus far, great vocals, backing tracks and mix. This is a very professional sounding song, especially for a first post so I think that you two are seasoned pros.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

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)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
