LOVED IT

I really liked your choice of RTs. Your vocals were spot on and the train effect put it over the top IMHO

Two thumbs up

Hi Rob, You seem to have a real knack for picking the right tracks for good country stuff. I enjoyed the listen! Also listened to "Didn't Notice Me" while I was there and I couldn't help but think that Johhny Cash would have had a ball with that one. I seemed to hear him in every line.

Good job!

Val

Rob,

Liked as mentioned above, the train really added a nice important part of your song.
Especially liked you doing the background vocal support. Added
a lot to your song.

Your a very creative person, with a lot of talent!

Absolute Newbie here - got BIAB today, but have have spent the last few days lurking and listening here. All I can say, is that if this song - Last Train - is an example of what can be achieved with BIAB, then I've spent my money well. An excellent production all round. Well done.

Warning for new BIAB users.
Be prepared for uncontrolled amounts of inspiration and copious amounts of songs writing.

Welcome Bonjo and thanks for your kind comments.
Will be keeping an eye out for your material.

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.
