#362423 - 08/26/16 03:26 AM [2016 & 2017 Xtra Styles Contests - Closed] Broken: Contest Submission from Rob Meulman

Here's my contribution to the Xtra Styles Contest:

BROKEN

Some magnificent styles in this pack most of them are radio ready.
As far as I'm concerned the PG team can feel free to do this every year ;-)

I immediately liked the style _Broken from the Pop/Rock section of the styles pack. It is heavy and melodic at the same time.
Hence, I decided to write a dramatic rock song using the very same title 'Broken'.
The song is about a man who caused a lethal car accident, and so the theme of the song is also quite heavy.

Since I'm not exactly a hard rock singer, it took me some time to master the song properly and to make my voice and the lyrics audible.
I used the Z3TA+ synthesizer to both master the song and enhance my vocals.

Anne-Marie will soon follow with a song from the Singer/Songwriter section.

Hope y'all like it!

Rob

Lyrics:

I, I want to make you see
that for all days to come
you'll have a hold on me
and I, I wanted you to know
that you will always be
the biggest part of me

were we really there?
was that real?
was there never a way out?
because I can't believe
there will always be this pain

I, I would give the world
to be next to you
just to be near to you
cause you, you're the very heart
being so much more than I could ever want
were you really there?
was that real?
will it always feel this dark?
as you were sitting there
that sudden silence
the life flowing out of you
away from everything I knew

was I really there?
was that real?
was there never a way out?
because I can't accept
that it was me
it was me who drove that car
it was me who ran that wild
were you really there?
was that you?
will it always be this cold
because I can't believe
there will always be this pain

Very nicely done Rob.

Like the use of guitar, strings and Rock drums. Great vocals.

So often we go for styles, but this EXTRA STYLES package is working just fine for me.

Rob,

This is really great! As always, your production is just brilliant.

You've taken this style and made it your own.... in every way, this creation is spectacular.

Thank you Noel!
I love that (hard) rock stuff in BIAB, a real challenge for my voice every time.
Me being sort of a wannabe rock singer ;-)
They did a great job by tweaking those styles in the Xtra Styles Pack. They sound so full and professional. I'm definitely going to record lots of other stuff with them.

Rob

Rob,
This was by far amongst your best ever utilizing BiaB and their Pop/Rock section
The drive where the drums actually carved out the melody line was magic
You say you’re a ‘whanabee’ rock singer, Rob, believe you me with this vocal you
are, and a good one who does not have to stand back for anyone.

Excellent work Rob. It all works together and your vocal comes through strongly on this song, so it's clear you own it. Perfect choice of the new XTRA styles.

Super song for this style... its going to be hard to beat in the rock category. Great production from you as usual.
The drama in the song is very convincing - so kudos to your wannabe rock chops, you nailed the vocal!

Great choice of rock delivery.

The Builds throughout give tension and dimension.

Very well produced. Nice driving beat, and sensational vocal performance.

Hello, Rob

Your Hard Rock vocal is so good and powerful.
I like your chord progression of this song.
And also I like the way you blend strings with Rock song.
Very enjoyable listen.

Best Regards.

Thank you Shigeki!

A very cool competition, lots of good stuff.

Rob,
I copy from my post in the User Showcase:
Tis is a bit like a softer version of Iron Maiden as your voice is as powerful as Bruce Dickinson's

good luck

Rob,

Great song and production as always. You're voice sounds great on a heavier song like this.

Loved the guitar solo too.

I must give _BROKEN.sty a go myself.

Congratulations!

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.

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.
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.

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.
