Hi, fellow "forumers", it's been awhile since my last post although I've been listening and enjoying some of the new posts. Working on a few projects and not finishing any, but after a rather frustrating week or so trying to use RB (which I'm not proficient at all), in order to put together this song I finally finished this one which was a Labor of Love
Built on RB mostly midi using different VST's
Sax is RT Alto solo funk grooving EV 16
Piano solo is Pop RootsyJohn EV 16


I hope you like it

Mike B.

Mike,

Nice, bright sound. I like your use of the strings. You've really got a nice ear and touch for arrangement and production.

Very good listen.

Very sweet!! Worth the labor. Masterful use of RTs-sounds like everybody in the box was on the same wavelength. Love the attitude of the mix too. Great all the way around! Take care. Greg

Mike, the labor paid off and we love it.
I really enjoy a mellow groove like this
when it is well done.

Nice production and the mix sounds
great on my KRK's. Everything seems
to sit just where it should.

Kudos!

Mike, Great mix. I still can't figure out how you double those solos. It adds a lot to the song. Nicely produced. I enjoyed it immensely. Tom

Thanks for the listen guys, I'm far too lazy to respond to each one individually, but my hart felt thanks and appreciation goes to each one of you. Like I said, I'm working on a few tunes and seems that I can't get to finish them as fast as I would like; but you know, some other idea comes to mind and there I go, start a new one, and so on. Will be posting another one pretty soon. Thanks again.

Mike B.

Hey Mike,

Where are you hiding the tune? How about a little help for the visually (and occasionally mentally) impaired?

However, your mention of RealBand was enough to give me the shakes. If the expression Access Violation doesn't ring a bell, then just keep on using RB and it will become a lifestyle. And watch RB perform neat little tricks, like inserting dozens of random zero-volume nodes all over the track you're trying to edit in the wave editor window. Then try to merge the tracks to a .wav file after your masterpiece is finally complete. You'll never guess why you can't do it: Access Violation. I once asked the folks at PG music what it was. No one seemed to know.

Dean

Thanks friends, again I normally don't take the time to thank everyone individually because I have to confess I'm way too lazy about that. I hope that an all around many thanks for the time to listen and kind comments is enough. More tunes to come as I finish them.

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.
