I'd like to showcase the fabulous quality of some of the soloists who recorded for PG Music. Well, they're all fantastic, but obviously one can only use a couple of soloist in each tune. This one goes full power with piano, hammond, guitars, banjo, mandolin, bass and drums.

Hey Delta
Very well done - it was great to have a user showcase some of these instrumentalists.

As a fingerpicker, and one who doesn't record his own guitar (not for lack of trying but lack of hearing)), I find that PG is still missing an RT fingerpicker to fit this rhythm style. Sure there is midi but we need an RT to fit what you've done here - preferably steel string - to fit such tunes like Don't Think Twice, Last Thing on My Mind, the Boxer -
Would you have by chance found a current RT fingerpicking instrumentalist to fit? I haven't, am I missing it?

Cheers - Ian

Hello Ian
Thanks for your feedback, but I'm not quite sure how to read your post. No, I haven't found any "picker" besides the one featured in this compilation (Chet pickin'). BTW: one of my all time favourites is Check Atkins/Mark Knopfler's "Just One Time". Still get goosepimples listening to it.

edit: come to think of it - I just did a quick re-mix

HI Delta,

I definitely agree with you on that. I started learning the art of arrangement. And having the many soloists here on BiaB has been a great resource in my learning. For years I had many ideas cross my mind and did not have the availability of musicians to record them. BiaB has definitely gotten me to express myself beyond the 6 strings I have learned to play and jump into the role of an arranger/producer where I can set up a series of chords, choose a style or two, and then tweak some of the soloists and voila!

I really liked what you did here. it was a nice blend of instruments tasteful use of banjo and a happy feel.
keep the coming!

Cheers,
RickeG

Thank you RickeG

I fell like being in heaven having all this great sounds and possibilities at my fingertips (or moustail). I remember when I was a kid, my biggest wish would have been to own a mellotron. Then at the time I would not dare to imagine what it must be to have an orchestra on a keyboard. Since I "only" played horn, trombone and a little bit of clarinette (parents pressure - ehm - wish) in my youth, I couldn't arrange songs on a keyboard. Well, at least until the 1990's with MIDI and an AWE32 (but that's another story). I always had a desire to arrange sounds to my liking. Now with BIAB and RealTracks it's just magic and - a piece of heaven for me. Funny thing is, the more I get into it, the more I realise I'm far away from where I would like to be. Steep learning curve on arranging, mixing etc.
Goooood fun though - as you know.

Daniel

BTW - I did listen to your tunes. "Somethin' Good" I like a lot, but I didn't want to comment on it since I don't feel "qualified" enough to comment. But I like the sound of it. Awesome into there (be careful not to compress jazz to death ). It has some heavy bass me thinks, but this could be just my setup.

Another song that should be a showcase for what RT’s can do.

Great job and super production.

Thank you all for your nice comments. And thank YOU, Dr. Gannon, for this superb piece of software.
Daniel

edit: Since there are so many fabulous soloists, I shall post another one, done in a slightly different manner.

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.
