Just posting a new song that I did as an experiment using the Melodist in BIAB. First time using the Melodist and the song pretty much wrote itself. Only had to make a few minor changes to the melody that came out of the Melodist. Wanted something easy to listen to so I used RealTracks PianoFlo from Disc #70. I haven't written lyrics yet but I think it will be fairly easy. All acoustic piano.

Me too.

Val, that's the piano styling that I love best.

Are your voice exercises helping? It can be a long, hard road back but the rewards will be gratifying to yourself as well as your many new friends who are anxious to hear you sing again. Christine is a wonderful young lady who is both loving and dedicated to helping people with voice disabilities. Follow her advice and YOU WILL SING AGAIN! She has been working out of Muskogee so I haven't seen her lately. Professional ethics prevent her from discussing your progress anyway.

Val,

Nice tune, but I like the ones you compose much better.
BIAB is amazing though. I'll have to give that Melodist a try one of these days it sounds like it'd be fun.

I would like to hear you sing on this one also, it’s very pretty as is, but after reading Don’s message please don’t rush. Your recovery is your highest priority.

Until then could you add some midi parts? I’m thinking orchestral strings and choir in the background and possible a flute or oboe lead.

Val,

Thanks for sharing this. I am still praying for you to get your voice back, so we can hear some of your lovely singing. But like Mario said, just take your time, and let the healing/recovery take place without doing any further damage. It'll be worth the wait!

Steve

Val,
Nice tune. I've played around with the Melodist feature a bit also. It's really remarkable what BIAB can do. I'm looking forward to see how your experiment evolves.

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
