Chris,

A very interesting composition. Nicely put together.

Good arrangement and very good mix. The nusic box was a nice addition to the instrument grouping...

Enjoyable listen.

Hi, Chris !:))


Why do I get the feeling
that this could go so well
as film music ? Maybe I
do recall that hauntingly
beautiful melody played in the
background to the "third man"
/ Orson Welles ????

In any case, it is a beautiful
piece of music !!

Cheers
Dani

Hi Chris,
Indeed this could easily be a film music track. It is very well produced, sound bright and fresh.
Enio Morricone would probably smile and give you a wink ☺

Wow a combination of instruments! I would have never that putting this combination would work. You did an outstanding job on this.

A very nice mix and excellent job on the RTs. Your music box playing fit perfectly.

Very cool music, and beautifully put together!! The first thing I thought was soundtrack for a film, and looked to see my forum friends beat me to the punch on that thought. Excellent listen! Take care. Greg

As others have noted, very clever and effective orchestration to a nice song.

Spiff!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Chris,

I really enjoyed this song a lot. As others have said it was a surprisingly effective combination of instruments and I really love the twinkly music box sound.

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.
