I hope you will indulge me while my BIAB projects remain somehow stuck in the kitchen on the stove cooking.

https://soundcloud.com/lawrence-olivier/black-elks-vision


This is another Korg X3 MIDI composition from the late nineties - early 'oughts.


After listing to "Departure" by seeker, I hope to learn how to utilize BIAB for these types of compositions in the near future.

A good listen, Lawrence.

Nicely put together. Good mix.

A lot happening along the way. Good textures.

I do miss your vocals, though.

Wow Lawrence,

Shades of Jean Michel Jarre there, beautiful, hypnotic, I enjoyed it from the first note till the last.

Hi Lawrence,

although I miss your vocals, too, I really enjoyed this one. Especially like the drums and bass. Great soundscape.

Indulge you??? no, I just can't frame any comment on your wonderful music as an indulgence!

At a time when I was still cursing the general state of computer based recording and accomplishing very little in any direction, you were already making rich and complex arrangements like this one!

Considering the tools you had to work with, and the fact that you had to do all this with little or no computer help, I have to compare your ability to conceive all the intertwined parts to the ability of the classical composers to imagine all the parts in their compositions.

As I listen to this and hear how the various passages segue from one to another, I am very impressed. It takes a special awareness to hear something like this in one's mind before it actually exists... and then conjure the dream into reality.

Interesting to hear something that is so different from the very organic music you tend to make these days... but one core thing has remained constant, and that is your amazing ability to take what's in your head and capture it as a song. That's nothing short of a gift!

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.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
