Hi Floyd,

Thanks so much for your very nice comment!
Raising the bar is what we all try to do, isn't it? Let's hope we don't disappoint anyone with our future songs blush
As far as the video is concerned: I had only 6 photo's and 2 short videos to create the final video. And these photo's were of the same mannequin. She was part of an exhibition of the dresses of Iris van Herpen. I visited the exhibition and was blown away by this designer dress.
Thanks again.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Hi Herb,

Thanks for your nice comments and advices.
As for experimenting with the EQ, it might be helpful (i.e. you could help ME) if you know something about my voice.
As a matter of fact I am an alt(o)/tenor. This means my vocal chords are longer than those of a (mezzo)soprano. I am capable of singing as a (mezzo)soprano when I have been singing all evening (I sing in 2 Vocal Groups) and it is warm. When I sing soprano notes I use a falsetto, which is very hard for a woman. Despite that, it will sound differently from a real soprano singing the same notes, as my vocal chords will resonate differently from the short vocal chords of a soprano.
When I sing as Rob's backing vocal I mostly have to sing as a mezzo soprano or even a soprano.
And I think for this song "Glass" I had to sing at a rather high pitch. I tried to do it at a lower pitch, but that didn't work.
To let you hear how my "real" voice sounds I send you this link. It is a song that has not been created with Biab, actually it is a cover of Rammstein's Mutter(but the lyrics are mine).

Father

May be, after hearing it, you can advice me how to let an alt(o)'s voice sound more like a (mezzo)soprano's.
Appreciate your advice.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

I like your "natural voice"... it has a quality about it that I like.

The cover song is powerful....wow...

I'll reserve the rest of my reply to PM.

Thanks Dani,
Yes, the video was quite some work, because I had to cut out the mannequin from the photo's (6) I had. That was a lot of work.
Most of the times the work consists of 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration smile

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Hi Noel,

Thanks for everything positive you said.
I've always considered myself to be a good backing vocal, not really a soloist. Words like these encourage me to do a solo project every now and then.
And the glass harmonica is wonderful indeed!

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Everything that I wanted to say has already been said!

Your vocals were outstanding and the lyrics were great. What a fantastic job you did on the backing tracks. WOW is all I can say!

The vid was absolutely fantastic.

PS - I can see either Lady GaGa or Milley Cyrus stealing that designer's dress for a show!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
