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

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?

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
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.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.

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.
