Had a lot of trouble getting the layout setup right in BIAB,
part my fault, built an intro, then did import with overwrite.
Still had some problems with this, but ironed it out.
Figured out some work-arounds.

Simple music created with Melodist and soloist, so many passes to
get what I wanted.
Nice dance or easy listening intentions.

Hi Frank,

Congratulations on a fine effort.

From what I heard, it seems to me that you're really starting to get a handle on all this stuff. Personally, I find mixing the final product the most challenging aspect of putting something together. I keep on practising and practising and seems to be getting easier. I've still got a long way to go, though.

I'm looking forward to hearing your next one, now.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

Thanks, especially coming from a pro....

The tools PG gives us are amazing. RealBand is a "Real" sleeper.
Once over a few bumps, then off we go.
The guidance, links for free Plugins, and other support software
from you folks has been just as important as the PG software itself.

Listening to you folks music and results have helped immensely.

Still a grasshoper, not a master, but with great set of speakers,
my ATH-M40fs headphones off to the races. Well guess its not a race.

Will try something bit more lively, actually have quite a few songs
sitting on back burner.

Trying to get together set of nice dancing music for another CD.

Again thank you Noel!

Nice job. It reminds me of those instrumentals from the 60's. Is that you on keys? Very nice. Great use of BIAB too.

Josie, glad you enjoyed, thank you.

Rob, still workin on it, a never ending story with these music tools
we have, Thanks.

jptjptjpt, Ya on the time frame, not intentional, that time frame, but
with my age it fits. I do play keyboards, but this time it was
BIAB. Thanks!

Frank, based on this one you are no longer a grasshopper!

Excellent job all the way around. Super nice mix. I thoroughly enjoyed this one up until the ending. That should be changed as the bass sounds like it didn’t know when to stop.

Mario,

Thanks a the generous compliments.

I sorta liked the ending, but after you comment, it really doesn't
fit the song. Will Nip that off, maybe kick up the other instruments a little bit
the fade nicely.

Again thanks for you all, you've helped me get this far.

FIXED THE TAIL END.....
