Electric Popland

Here is a small instrumental track I wrote in 2009. I think it is a very nice example to showcase the versatility of Band-in-a-box. Most of the tracks are MIDI instruments from the styles STR_QT44, ORKMED44, Ork448, Mozart and -TEKRA0+.STY. Only realtrack used is #479 Trumpet. RealDrums TechnoRadio.

I have used 3-7 layers of instruments to play the melody and then at one point you can even hear my voice through a vocoder effect smile

Mixed in Adobe Audition (I think I used version 3.0 at that time).

Hi Janne,

That sure sounds complete and "full" considering it's mostly midi tracks (not sure if that is correct English), especially the base kick.
Are you using a soundfont or a special midi synth?
Let us know, we're interested.
Well done!

Hi Janne,

I like this a lot! The RT trumpet sits very well in the mix... I also like the way you've developed the progression. It remains interesting throughout.

The use of recurring themes really adds cohesiveness to the project... very easy to listen to!

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie! If I remember correctly, I used Coyote Forte DXi for all MIDI instruments. Although I cannot rebuild the original mix (version incompatibility), I can see that I used both multi-band compressor and hard limiter on drums and bass.

Thanks Pat for your kind comment. The Techno RealDrum has so many variations that it is easy to keep some interest through the song.

Janne,

BEAUTIFUL
very reminiscent of the synth works from the late 1908's

I loved that era so this is a very,very enjoyable listen

I see you playing this on stage, wearing a cape, surrounded by lots of synths with the smoke machine going. grin

I look forward to more

Alyn

Very cool Janne!! Cool music and cool sound. I could hear this as a film score-heard a few 007 changes in one part. Love the trumpet. Excellent job! Take care. Greg

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
