Hello All,
Here is the latest tune I did with Band in a box.

https://soundcloud.com/musingthemusic/ode-to-a-cat

The band in the box summary is below. I exported all the tracks individually and then imported in Sonar X2. I added tracks for vocal and electric guitar. All the rest was Band in a Box.

Guitar was recorded wet ( effects from pedalboard ) with Reverb and compression added on the channel for mixdown. vocals came in dry and I added Reverb and compression plugins using Sonar.

Thanks for any comments. It was a fun project for me and Band-in-a- Box really raised the level of what I was able to accomplish with the tune in a short time frame.

-Patrick

Love the song, the lyrics, the yodel, the voice, the mix and balance and cats. They don't come better than that. Cheers.

Thanks Rich. Gave your soundcloud a quick look. I think i will be singing the chorus to "Where are you Willie?" As i go about my chores today! Nothing like a good waltz and the sea.

Hi,Patrick !:))


Your tune softened my heart completely !
I just love everything about it !
You see, I have two cats myself i.e.
Naomi (the black one) and Lady (the white one)
So, my love for cats is kinda black and white (chuckle) !!

Cheers
Dani

Nice tune and I like the airy feel of the arrangement and mix. It's nice to hear some waltz RT's put into use -- don't hear that often. Kudos!

I really enjoy your vocal on this, and the clever lyrics. There were several gems:)




p.s. I also use Sonar to mix the imported RT's. Have been using BiaB for about six months...what a difference it has made for me too, and the folks here have helped tremendously.

Thank you Dani, I appreciate the comment. I youtubed a video for my friends who had a little difficulty with soundcloud. As you can see I got the Black and White in one package! Please say hi from me ( and Pancho) to Naomi and Lady.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to give the tune a listen. I really appreciate the feedback. I am taking a songwriting course with Pat Pattison of Berklee at Coursera.org. This was built off of our second assignment. It's a fun class and the price couldn't be beat (free! smile ).

Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement.

Hi Patrick
I also did the Pat Pattison course through coursera. Great isn't it? I love your cat song. I also love cats but cant have any because my husband is allergic (or so he says!) I miss my black and white cat who was called Emily despite being male!
Loved your tune

Really enjoyed it Patrick! Especially liked that guitar lick climbing up the tree - very creative.

Two paws up!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
