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

Can't wait to hear more!

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!!

J&B

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

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:

RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
