A new song, all done with Band in a Box and mixed with Cubase. Just a few thoughts about the plight of a lot of people in our world.

Roy,

for some reason Sound Cloud has not been working for me lately... I'll have to reserve comment until I can get it to work so I can hear your song...

update: I was able to listen on another computer

Sounds like you got your Cat Stevens on! I liked this song a lot!

You have a very commercial voice... tonality is right there, and you have vocal personality if that makes any sense

I like your choice of real tracks... especially the opening guitar. A lot of people post that info for future reference... when we hear something we like, that helps us find the cool track with a lot less work

My perception of the lyrics was generally positive, but it would be nice to see them written out so I don't have to remember the phrases I want to discuss a little more.

There were a couple of times when the harmony didn't line up with the chord I thought would be playing at that spot... I'll have to listen a few more times to get a better understanding of the chords.

Quick & dirty summary: cool song! Post more!

Roy,

This is very well done. Nice production and a very well recorded vocal. And well sung. Good mix.

Sort of classic folk song with a modern sound.

Nice! Enjoyable.

Hi Roy,

A very good song. Well sung and the music's very good too.
Cat Stevens...? Mmmmm... I sometimes heard Johnny Cash.
Go on like this.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

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.
