Sonitus Multiband using Medium Master preset.
Used Stereo expander with full presets.
Also used K-meter for final mix levels along with RB output meter.
Used RB mixer for bit of reduction in level for master output.

I downloaded a screen capture Demo from SnapIt.
Video finalized 11-11-2012.
If you click the 720p will be best for viewing.

BUT real reason was a response that puffed me up......
then the last line......ROFLMAO... sales gimmick I guess.

It's November. That fits.
Nice mix.
Don't bother about the video comment.
Of course it's a sales gimmick.

Here are my thoughts listening through it for the first time:

With headphones on, the first thing I noticed was the stereo separation. Not a bad thing, just a bit of surprise. Perhaps a touch loud.

Once the song started, it was smooth sailing. Nice.

Without peeking, I'd guess the leads were live rather than RealTracks. (Peeking shows me wrong, so kudos for being freaking awesome).

When the guitar came in after the piano, it sounded a bit quiet in comparison.

Piano in the second time - yep, it's louder than comparison. A bit too loud in headphones for me.

Not much change on the drums for the last guitar entrance?

The end sort of tails off rather than finishes.


Other than the volume difference between the leads and the ending, it's all good.

Well done!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Frank - nice! Great feel to this one. I kept waiting for Patsy Cline to start singing along. Any chance of that happening?

Guenther,

I took the "sales" pitch to be what it was.
Thanks for compliments.

David,

I do my mix with Audio Technica ATH-M40fs headphones primarily.
Then follow up with Monitor speakers, to make sure there is a
balance from phones to speakers.

I've been concentrating on making music interesting with the changes
in the instruments. In this process, apparently I've neglected
the overall entire track levels thru the entire song. Good points to make.

The Realtracks are awesome, glad you approved of their realistic sounds.
The Style itself is awesome. Had to do bit of research to help me
understand 12-8 timing. Its not a casual thing, but with PG tools,
helps a great deal.

Have been doing a lot of gain modifications to the Jazz pieces recently for
their changes. Did a lot of gain modifications on this, but did not pick up
on the on the neglected levels.

Will have to work more with drums for the changes. This is a bit
foreign to me. Know about the bar changes for sub-groups, but drum
enhancements

Yes on the endings. Coda's are real enhancers there, used on couple
of songs, then got confused again.

BTW, I just bookmarked this thread, will call it up for next new work.

Appreciate your comments, I take them as a learning, or oh rats, should have
noticed that. You really had to listen closely to pick up on these.

Again thanks to you both!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
