Hi all,

When I started to make music with BIAB and some kids in 2013, they were 8-9 years old.

Now, the kids are 12-14 and – believe me - they are no longer sweet little girls… wink

Our new song is a birthday song of a different kind. I wrote down the lyrics as best I could. Many turns of the German language are not to translatable, but I hope you have as much fun as we had
The “statistics”:

METALTR.STY. Metall Power Trio 80-180, 165 Bpm
389:Bass, El, Metal Ev165
2264:PianoAk,80sBubblegumPop Ev
392:Git,El,Rhythmus Metal Ev165
660:Git,El,Ry,TxRkCrisp Sw140
586:Harmonkia,B,Bl Roadhse Ev120
MetalEv^1-a:Snare, Sloppy HiHat , b:Snare, Bell Ride

I changed the drums in the DAW (Reaper) by using Toontrack

The song starts at 1:00, the intro is just the description of an ugly birthday-party in a 1970's location. I think, everybody will understand what's going on there, until the girls of High Five will appear....

The Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2PHZaWVsgI&lc=z13mzxi5mp3ssvjj104cgx0gqufeinjgxjg

The lyrics

Because it’s you

You're so hip
you are so popular today
today is a great day
because you have a cake

You forgot to invite us
so we did it by ourselves
no problem, we're not angry
and we brought the party with us

Because it's you because you're here
who eats just today a cake
we move up with plates,
now share your cake with us

The guests who are with you today,
we’ll put them into the storeroom
we take care of them, my child
they won’t bother our party

We love you, we love you
so relax, you cute mouse
the world would be a crap without you
so open your gifts now

Because it's you because you're there
with which you can forget the world
we sing a song for you
and it sounds really horrible




Have fun

What a great production. You have really captured the spirit of young teenagers.

Your young team of actors have performed marvelously.

Great effort, I'm sure this didn't just fall together. Lots of takes and more takes. Not to mention costume changes. Then the editing.

Well done!

Hello Ronald,

We remember some similar videos with German children a little while back, which sounded very professional, just like this one. Was this you?
Great production!

Thank you so much, RnAM

I made five vids until now, and the last I've posted here. You can find them on my channel at youtube.

In the last month, other people on YT started to make new songs for the kids. I'm really happy about it, cause the german songs for kids are really old-fashioned.

Best wishes

Ronald

By the way: Uw zingen is echt geweldig

Thank you!

oh yeah, it took 30 hours to take the video and 10 hours for the cut. In fact, 20 hours would have been enough, but I destroyed the first sd-card.

Btw: never put a sd card in your purse together with coins wink

Regards

Ronald

Hello all,

I want to thank you all for your kind and encouraging words. I hear many of your songs and I find them inspiring. I am very glad that you take time to hear and watch my simple songs and videos although your music is far more sophisticated than mine.

I comfort myself with the fact that I even want to get children interested in music...

Regards

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
