Nice tune Mattox, not bad for your first one.Only observation is that maybe to bring the vocals volume a little more up. They are worth hearing it a little better.

Nice job! I like the Americana style. The midi keyboard I think could be replaced by a different keyboard real track. Good stuff! Take care. Greg

Nice groove. I like how your vocal phrasing seems to lay back a little on the beat ( my impression anyway). It goes well with that style you picked. It was fun listening along to the story.

Hi Mattox,

Welcome to the Users' Showcase smile

I agree with what others have said. This is a great groove and it sounds like you're both having a lot of fun playing with it. I enjoyed the listen. Now I'm looking forward to your next work.

Regards,
Noel

Ken and Steve,

Welcome to the forum! Good job a first BIAB project. Well mixed.
The song has a good feel. The vocals could come up a bit - as others have mentioned.

Pretty good song. I also listened to some excepts of some of the other songs. Very consistent body of work. Welcome to the forum and PG Music.

welcome to the land of biab recordings! Pretty good song and nice job on the tune overall. I would work on the enunciation of the words a bit. You are not far away, but I thought that part could be improved.

I like the progression you have in this.

Not a bad job for the first time out of the gate.

Bring up the vox and let it roll. Might wanna put some light reverb on the vox and the mix.

Great first effort! BIAB is the first step and then there's the mix -- the devil in the details for sure. I agree with moving the vocals up. Keep 'em coming.

Hi Guys!

Welcome to the Showcase forum. There's lots of talent here and a ton of good info from from the showcase natives.

Love the musical bed with one exception ... the midi keyboard isn't the best fit for the song. If it were us, we'd replace it with a muted guitar track. Love the song and the chord progression. As Kevin Emmrich commented, a little clearer vocal enunciation would really jack this one up!

A really nice song and good effort with BIAB for your first cut! BIAB is an on-going learning process. We've had it since 2011 and we learn something new every week or so.

Good luck with your music and thanks for joining us here on the forum! Best to yas!

Alan & Di

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
