I told Dr. Gannon that I thought the style; "Crooner" was the BEST music tech innovation I'd ever heard. Well, with the Django guitar solo added for this Satchmo classic, I believe my comment is really (shall we say) amplified. ENJOY, and thanks BIAB for the most innovating software in the world!

Very nice Johnny. Hard to distinguish you from the RT's, but not impossible. Your tone and phrasing stands out. Thanks for the share.

For anyone who might not know, Johnny played with the Lawrence Welk Orchestra. He's one fine player.

Excellent Johnny and definitely my kind of music cool

I have tried to produce the same kind of recordings myself with my trombone but without achieving the same excellent sound as yourself.

I was wondering if you could detail how you made a recording. What kind of microphones, connected to what and how? Do you use earphones when recording the trumpet track? Do you use RealBand to enhance or balance any of the tracks? It seems to me it is the detail of connections that holds the answers and you obviously have them.

I agree with your comments about the backing and said the same thing on The Trombone Forum. However, I had to use a midi trombone to illustrate and I would much prefer to play my own trombone over the backing:

https://soundcloud.com/grah-bonejazz/please-be-kind

"Please Be Kind" was my Band-in-a-Box sample, which a lot of my trombone internet mates think is absolutely a great backing. Several of them purchased Band-in-a-Box as a result.

Also here is another internet mate of mine who plays the most fantastic bass trombone to Band-in-a-Box backings:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7_nXTlgtMg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l8WyD_1aGc&feature=youtu.be

I really am very interested in your detailed recording technique. Pretty please! smile

Yes, and thank you for writing, Graham.

I do use earphones to record and I use a Samson C01U USB Mic. I have a Dell ALL-In-One computer and I record to its hardrive while playing the backgrounds right from BIAB. I like to balance everything right from the BIAB interface and use its reverb and panning utilities.

BTW, Bass Trombonist George Roberts of Sinatra recording fame, used to put a mic almost DOWN THE BELL of his horn to record. That way, he could play really soft and let the engineer control do what he wanted with the perfectly isolated sound from the horn. That's how all those Sinatra Bass Trombone recordings were done. We used to "kid" George about "losing" his horn to that microphone someday. We all got a laugh at that, but Sinatra got the sound he wanted using this wonderful technique! So, I agree with Dr. Gannon . . . "Have fun"! JZ

Thank you, Peter! BTW, someone asked "How did I play along with the RT's"? I didn't! What you hear on the recording is PURE RT's with NO enhancement. They're great by themselves!

What RT is the "Crooner"? I have BIAB 2016 but I don't seem to find it? Or was included on the $ 49.00 package I didn't get?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

Well, I actually went looking for it in more detail for you and found that there is an omission on the PGM web site (which I've reported to Support). The packages that this RT is included with are not listed cry

which contains the #236 RT Set

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
