Here is the latest BB project I worked on. I finally figured out how to audition takes via band in the box to accomplish the instrumentalists "trading fours" section. It was back in November, so hopefully I will still remember.

I used Band in a box, realband, Sonar x1 (to add vocals), Anime Studio Pro and Cyberlink Power Director

Hi Patrick,

You've got my applause! To my ears, this was a very tastefully composed, arranged and presented work.

Patrick,

Gotta agree with Noel, Brad and Alyn.... Great job! Both the song and the video. (Although, with that sound, you may want to keep heading south on 65 and find your way to Austin...)

Patrick,

Not only a very good tune but lots of fun to listen to and watch.

The animations and your vocal puts it over the top.

Later,

Patrick, I agree with all that has been said. The backing tracks are perfect for you vocals.

I enjoyed the animations also but I really liked the telephone wires that were strung like a music staff with the birds as the notes! Well done!

I agree: Great job! Both the song and the video.
I like the idea of the birds on the staves too.
Enjoyable vocals.

Noel, Brad, Alyn, Floyd, Bob, ROG, Danny C., Mario, Guenter and Jim,

Thanks for all your comments regarding the music and the animation. It's great to get feedback from fellow composers. I've been offline awhile due to a busy schedule, but recognize at the very least Noel, Mario and Bob ( gypsy woman tune a while back?) from when I was a bit more actively online.

Floyd, your Austin comment is well taken. I tried several contemporary Nashville styles, but the tune kept pulling me back to the traditional, more in the Western swing. Just had to stop fighting it and go with what I was.

Mario and Guenter, glad you noticed the birds on the lines/staves. I had several things in mind for that part of the tune, but that one materialized when I got to that point in the animation. I know I'm not the first to think of it, but I took my turn at it

Brad, I had to laugh at the kazoo comment. I used to play with a tuba player who had three metal kazoos and a funnel soldered together and he would jump into a solo on it at the appropriate climax of our New Orleans style gigs. Those were good times.

Thanks again, hope to get more active in the forum as the season winds down here.

Regards,
Patrick

Loved it! GREAT feel. I liked how you did the trade off's too! Very authentic!

So...how did you do the animation?

HearToLearn,

I created the truck and also used some stock backgrounds from the Anime Studio program adapted to what I was doing. Other objects I drew in black/white, scanned in and modified from there. The bulk of it was from within the program where you create objects and move them along a timeline. I've only done 4 things over the last couple years, I'm still a newbie, but this was the most complicated thing I have done so far. If I knew how to draw for real, that would be something. Thanks for your comments. I really like how amazingly useful Band-in-a-Box and Realband have become as the program has continued to develop.

-Pat

Great! Reminds me of some of Arlo Gutherie's "ALice's Restaurant" period. Thanks for sharing.

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.
