Here’s a little ditty created in response to a series of calls from a bill collector, who’s convinced I must know somebody named Brooke. Technical details: all instrument tracks were created in BIAB using RealStyle _CBALMNS for the verse, and midi style NR_HILL+ (with midi and RealDrums) for the chorus. So there’s not a lick here musically that BIAB didn’t generate. The audio and midi tracks were exported to Logic Pro, where a Ketron SD2 was used for the midi tracks. Melodyne was used to add a little harmony in the chorus (and probably should have been used for some more pitch correction.) Otherwise, no plug-ins or special effects other than the reverb, compressor, etc. that comes standard with Logic Pro 9.

The music starts about 35 seconds in. Not much of a song, but I tried to get a good mix. Suggestions welcome.

ha, ha -- way to use everyday life for a song idea and inspiration. It sounds pretty good, good change-up in the chorus.

What version of melodyne do you have -- the harmonies sound really good! Super cool song.

excellent concept for a song!
I think it has commercial potential
(meaning the song could probably be sold to an artist who already has his niche but needs new material)

2 thumbs up

Very cool!


"Suggestions welcome"


I would suggest that you record that onto your outgoing voicemail for the next time they call.

Enjoyed that - thanks.


Regards,


Bob

And I think 90 dB's suggestion was spot on!

Wow. Thanks for all the feedback.
As to Kemmrich's Melodyne question, I just used Melodyne Editor 2, the AU plug-in, on a track I'd doubled, dragging the notes around until it sounded good. I also tried creating harmonies in Antares Harmony Engine and Harmony EFX, but the result in Melodyne sounded more natural (though it could be I'm just more familiar with Melodyne).

Very clever and very well done. The same thing happened to me. After 40 calls, I called them back and SCREAMED at them until they finally hung up. They never called again.

Cool song... got more like that?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
