Hello everyone,

We've been away for a little while.
I have been busy moving to a new place in a different location. A small village quite nearby Anne-Marie's place :-)
Besides that, we just got back from a holiday to Berlin.
Here's the new contribution to the forum. It's a solo project I created some months ago:

MONDAY

The basis of the song was created in ChordPulse, the following BIAB RT's were added:
391 guitar electric rhythm metal
1007 piano acoustic solo accompaniment popflowing
1275 piano acoustic rhythm popupliftheld
1278 Synth Pad Pop Uplift
1530 guitar electric soloist pop power
RealDrums: Soul 70s Ev16

The video is a combination of lyric screen recordings (which took me ages to sync properly) and Dani Millán's wonderful skater footage.
I compiled everything in MoviePlus X5.

Hope you like it, any comments are welcome.

Rob

Rob you have done a lot of beautiful music on here. But this is my absolute favorite. The melody is super - the lyrics and arrangement are spot on. And the vocal is top notch.

I love this. You've set a new bar for yourself with this one.

Rob,

Great song as usual, you have an EXCELLENT voice.

I do like the ""written" effect on the words in the video and can see that they would have taken hours to get right.

As Josie (Sundance) wrote "You've set a new bar for yourself with this one."

Rob,

This is top class music. You're performance is brilliant and your production is outstanding. As others have said, you've raised the bar really, really high with this one. Great video, too. Like Sundance, this is my new favourite of yours.

Regards,
Noel

Rob,

Great song. Every once in a while I hear some Roy Orbison in your voice - very nice. Loved it.

Rob, as usual, fantastic melody, lyrics, and absolutely superb vocal delivery. Perfect build, and nice balance of instruments.
Very, very good songwriting and presentation. This is capable of air-play.

Thanks Josie,

What a very nice comment!
Reaching those high-pitched notes wasn't easy crazy
'Monday' and 'Amanda' (for which I'm going to create a video in the near future) are my two little favorites, as far as my solo projects are concerned.
Credits go to ChordPulse and of course BIAB, without these two programs I wouldn't have been able to create this kind of sound.

WOW!!

We didn't think there was room enough left for you guys to raise the bar
again. This is fabulous in all aspects and we love EVERYTHING. Superb
vocals and mix and write. No need to go into details because everything
works together so well.

And the video is off the charts. How the heck did you do the "lyric writing?"
Specific software or very carefully using conventional vid software?

Amazing presentation!!

I could not say this any better than J&B did. I don't usually watch videos - but this caught my attention immediately and I could not stop watching - a great mix of lyric video and film...

Terrific write, vocals, production. Your best (among so many good ones).

Just what I was about to write. Excellent song.

I quickly recognized the 1530 solo guitar. One of my favorites that I use anytime I can.

Rob you have a very smooth and pleasant voice and good range. I enjoy videos and yours is superb. The chorus is my favorite part and one in particular that you nailed it to perfection. Everything about this production is right on!

Beautifully done soft rock ballad!! As others have observed, the vocal is beautiful (Rob "Roy Orbison"). The chorus just rises and soars-grabs the ear in a very nice way. The rest of the arrangement/mix is excellent as well. An all-around winner!! Take care. Greg

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.
