Hi all

Two new ones I just finished (well, sort of).

For the first one I let BIAB compose a Childrens Melody in MIDI. The rest was just filling up with RealTracks. You'll know why I chose this title:

Simple Melody:

The other one is quite something different. Lots of instruments mixed in an unusual way (Northern Rock Guitars & Bass, Guitar Strumming Rascal, Sax Alto Soloist Smooth Jazz Cool, Flute Soloist Bossa, Guitar Soloist Cowboy, one might even hear a Hammond B3 somewhere).

Enjoy and have a Nice Day!

Have A Nice Day:

Cheers, Daniel

PS: as usual, it's work in progress. Suggestions for mix improvments are most welcome.

Hi Daniel,i really enjoyed your two songs ,and they sound awesome,is this all done using BB ,and when you upload them what format do you use ,because it doesn't sound like mp3,and i know i ask a lot of questions,but they sound that professional,may i ask what you use to record your wonderful songs, once again really good,best wishes Brian.

Hello Brian
Thank you for your nice comments. The tracks are generated in BIAB, sometimes several takes of the same instrument. I then move the tracks to Samplitude(now vers.11) where I continue to work (edit, cut, paste and apply various plugs). But this is not because I think it could not be done in RealBand. To the contrary. I think it's not about the tools one uses, it's how one uses the tools. I am simply used to work in Samplitude since I used it quite some time to create music mostly with looped samples before I discovered the magic Box, BIAB.
I uploaded the songs in mp3 at 196 kBit/s. I used to use 320 kBit/s but the difference in sound quality is quite small and 196 kBit/s uses less space and loads quicker on slower connections.
Thanks again.
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Excellent work. I particularly like the second one. You definitely had something very creative happening when you put it together!

All the best,
Noel

Daniel, great work here!

I really like “Have a Nice Day”. Very creative in both style and RT selection. Super song.

Hello Noel and Mario
Thank you for your nice comments. I did some slight mix changes since I uploaded them the first time (took out some mid low mud). I still hope to "get there" one day. Thank you for listening.
Daniel

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.
