An instrumental inspired by a river near my home.

Kish

Bass RT 366 Country Bass
Drums Nashville even 16

All other instrumentation was played by me.

Even though "country" RTs were used, this is not a "country" tune. I'm not sure what genre it belongs to... just came out the way it came out.

Any/all comments/suggestions welcome.

Nice tune Rob. Maybe "easy listening" or "chill-out music'?
In any case it sound good and relaxing.

Nicely realised Rob. I can see a lazy river in my mind listening to that. Very atmospheric.

It reminds me of Pink Floyd. Very nice. I like all the tasteful use of the effects, I've just starting investigating some VSTplugins that I have, so that caught my attention.

Very nice, Rob. The acoustic is very well recorded. And the little touches of piano are tasteful - what is the piano?

Good mix.

Very nice, the acoustic guitar is very well recorded. What microphone did you use?
This is something that would fit well in a movie or documentary.

Keep up the good work,

Nice job on the live recordings.

Yeah just because it's country or rock tracks doesn't mean a thing. I use "cross genre" stuff all the time and it adds a different feel to the music.

IMHO, the drums...especially the snare is just a tad too hot and sticks up and out of the mix.

Rob, I really like the chords on the acoustic. Great job recording that. As John said, very atmospheric. I liked it a lot. Tom

@Bob: Thanks for the compliment on the guitar work!

@Mike: Thanks for the suggestions about genre.

@John: The Kish is a "lazy" river. I'm glad the tune brought this to mind. I was picturing the river at sunrise / sunset while composing.

@Patrick: My wife also said it sounded like Pink Floyd.

I did use Dimension Pro for the piano. Otherwise all the effects used were stock Sonar effects. Reverb, eq, and compression. There was also delay on the piano. The eq was used mostly to roll of the bass frequencies of the synth and guitars (high pass).

Most of the "effects" you are hearing came from my Alesis 6.1. I have had the same board since 1998.

@ Floyd: The piano is the only soft-synth in the mix. It is a Dimension-Pro preset. I played it using my Alesis a controller.

@Charlie: Thanks for the listen!

@R&AM: Thank you. The guitar was recorded using a pencil condenser (MXL 603s). I'm always impressed by its sound as it came free with the purchase of a entry-level large diaphragm condenser (MXL 2001).

Funny you should mention the "movie" as I am currently putting together a video of the river using this as the sound-bed.

@Guitarhacker: You know, on one of the speaker systems I listened to it on (my car), I was thinking the same thing. I'll have to go back and revisit the mix. I'll update the post when I do.

@Tom: Thanks for the listen and the kudos!

Hi Rob,

I found this a very pleasant and relaxing listening. "Soothing" was a word that regularly floated around inside my mind.

I enjoyed it.

All the best,
Noel

Atmospheric is indeed the key word here....so easy to see the river. Well, maybe I'm set up for it because we paddled today.

Nice production with fine playing. Kudos.

Nobilis beat me to the punch. I hear Pink Floyd all over the place-not any song but the vibe!! Beautifully done! I kept expecting David Gilmore's transcendental voice to poor in with some trippy lyrics. Top notch work!! Take care. Greg

I agree with all the posters this is a wonderfully atmospheric piece of music.
However I imagined myself floating in space rather than by a river, sorry !!
Still excellent tho'

Totally agree with the Pink Floyd vibe.

Love it! Love the bass! Also hear a bit of an early pink floyd vibe. Floating. Cheers.

Hi Robb...

We loved it from the opening (cool!) to the very last note. As so many have said, "atmospheric" at its best.

It reminded Di and me of a still bayou late at night. There was the feel of apprehension as well as the comfort of beauty. Great cut !!!!!! Best to ya,

Alan & Di

Really nice Floyd-esque work!!

I could imagine more strings fattening it up along with David Gilmore vocals smile

The sounds of an actual river with paddling perhaps?

But, then again, it's not about going for Floyd- it's about going for YOU!

Well done!!!!

peace~

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

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

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.
