dga, for a first post, this is absolutely excellent.

A great vibe right throughout the song.

Plus 2!

The vocal sounds a bit dry -- might be my old ears!
Perhaps boost the reverb a small amount.

Enjoyed it.

This is really great! It seems as if I know you though. Have I met you somewhere perhaps, maybe even jammed or co-written a song with you? Oh who are you strange stranger with the bold new post and great new song?

Could not your bio reveal your true identity, perhaps a name, or let us know if you might be a neighbor? Oh tell us now, who art thou mysterious and heavily cloaked mask'ed man of the BIAB forum???

Who stands behind this song???

Have we ever met?

Welcome to the forum! Nice song! Nice simple, well-constructed backing track, and good job on the vocal. I'd like to see the lyrics to follow along. The vocal processing sounded like a light slap-back vs. a warmer reverb. Love to hear more! Take care. Greg

David Snyder -- the man who taught me everything I know about BIAB -- I'm your student David G Abowd (dga). If anyone out there does not know David Snyder then let me introduce him to you. David is one of the most talented musicians I know. I had purchased BIAB 2015 in December 2014 and was having trouble getting anything out of it except some short looped jamming tracks to practice with. Well when I told David this he invited me over to his house and gave me an intensive once over of both BIAB and RealBand. I went home right away and before you knew it I hit a snag. Not to worry I called up David and he talked me through the problem. I went on for another 11 months making backing tracks for all of my original songs using BIAB and RB. Then a few months ago David spent several sessions with me on how to record Vocals.

In a few months Maybelle, I'm still shocked I was able to write, arrange in BAIB, record the vocals in RB, and render the wave file. Now the bad news I'd like to get that vocal sound back and I saved the settings, to my local C drive on my computer. Which crashed about a week after recording this song. I hope I can restore the computer to use. I think I can get the.tgs file from the HD and transfer it to my new computer. If that is right I'm happy.

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.
