Soundcloud link: Take A Break

Well now...this is something pretty different. BIAB allows you to do some very cool things with music...understatement, yea, I know. This little snippet of a song is titled "Take A Break" and was created as a "break song" that a band might play when they're closing a set and heading to the bar or the restroom. The info below has MIDI references but if you have all the proper RealTracks they will be substitued for the MIDI in the CHUKSHUF.STY.

The Telecaster riffs include everything I could think of to throw in there including some Ray Flacke, some banjo-style tripletts, some double-stopped Chuck B licks, and even some pedal steel licks. If you're gonna show off, nothing like a break song to jam in everything and go out with a flourish.

Read the following text out loud in your best frontman voice, while the song is playing and you'll get the idea:

"OK, we're gonna take a little break right now, "a little pause for the cause." The drummer needs go to the bathroom and the rest of us need a good stiff drink. Remember, if you like us, we're Blues Rift, and if not we're the Backstreet Boys. Otherwise, thanks for coming out. Tell your friends. We'll be right back. Don't go away now, ya hear?"

Music is so much fun, dontcha think? grin

~Rob

Hello Rob,

Yep, a great break song! I did a little number, also, for our band that we used most of the time.

Very catchy and leaves the crowd wanting more - maybe they'll stay and dance & drink one more set! Nice work!

An yep - music is a bunch of fun!

That was cool!

great sound and licks on the guitar

I remember playing break songs mostly when I was a bass

player in a club/road band, it was a chance to just cut loose

for awhile.

Thanks everyone. Pleased you enjoyed it. I'd like to read any interesting spiel you use or have heard used to address the audience/fans at break time. I've heard some real doozies...good and bad...from various bands

Thanks for listening,
Rob

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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
