Hi All.

Well, what can I say about this one? Just a bit of fun, really.

The backing has been sitting on my computer for ages whilst I put the animation together, so I've lost the RT numbers, but the acoustic guitar, bass and sax are RTs - the other guitars are down to me. The drums are MIDI played from the Drum Source sample player and the extra horns are Forte.

The video was put together using software from Muvizu, Serif and Lightwave.

TIL MONEY CHANGES HANDS
I played a gig in this downtown bar
This man comes up, he says he'll make me a star
He liked the songs, he said I'd got a style
He said I'd make it rich, he said I'd make a pile
"There's just one thing that you've got to understand
Nothing's gonna happen here, 'til money changes hands."

I needed cash so I went to see a man
To see if he'd got a job where I could maybe try my hand
He took one look and said - "I think you'll make the grade
But first I need to check to see if you've got what it takes
There's just one thing that you've got to understand
Nothing's gonna happen here, 'til money changes hands."

I got to thinking that I should stand and fight
So I went to see the Judge downtown to try to put things right
He said - "I can deal with that, I'll get him taken down
I'll get onto the sergeant and he'll send the heavies round
There's just one thing that you've got to understand
Nothing's gonna happen here, 'til money changes hands."

Thanks, as usual, to all who have time to listen.

Cheers, ROG

Well, that was fun to watch! Great job on the video!

Loved the song too, great chorus. Cool fx on the vocals, what is that if you don't mind my asking? Nice job on the guitar, could maybe be a bit louder in the mix? But that's subjective I guess, I probably mix mine too loud smile

Overall I enjoyed the song and the video, nice job!

Excellent song and video. Fun to watch and hear. The message is probably more relevant than we'd like to believe......

Enjoyed this from start to finish.

ROG, This is a great track. Lot's going on here. The vocals are exceptionally good. I loved the melodic guitar solo. Extremely well arranged and mixed. A super listen! Tom

Ah, another muvizu user (Pat Marr is not alone anymore ;-))
Cool video! (And we know how much work this one must've taken).
What a cool song!!! Love the guitar solos, but what struck me even more are the very smooth ELO-like backing vocals, you've definitely outdone yourself here!

ROG,

The video is well done... entertaining.

A clever write! Nice development start to finish.

Excellent track. The solos are nice throughout - very melodic.

Got a great chuckle out of that!! HA!

Well done. Excellent mix. A terrific listen... (and "watch"!)

I agree with Tom!! Really cool production. I love your phased sound on the vocal-like ELO back in the day. A treat for the ears and the eyes! Great job!! Take care. Greg

Hi Dave.
Many thanks for looking in and for the review.
The effect used on the vocals is a vocoder. I still use a hardware vocoder by Syntovox, which I've had since the 80s. The most common use for these is the talking synth, but when you get to know your way around them there are lots of more subtle things you can do with them. I love it, but one day it will stop working and my repair guy says then it becomes junk! If you want more info on vocoders, send me a PM.

Hey, you could be right about the guitar volume. I have a standing joke going with Floyd about solo volumes and he's going to give me some grief about this!

Anyway, glad you liked the track.

Cheers, ROG.

Hi Rob.
My old pal Pat says I got him into animation, but it's Pat who introduced me to Movizu. It's a great program, but there's a lot to learn before I get anywhere near Pat's standard.
Hey, thanks for the comments about the vocals. I always worry about my vocal tracks and coming from someone who sings as well as you do that's a great compliment.
Cheers, ROG.

Well, Floyd my friend, what can I say. As soon as I saw Dave's comment I knew I was in for trouble.
And who's to say I don't deserve it. I was well and truly caught out this time!

Anyway, glad you liked the track. The next solo will make your ears bleed.

Cheers, ROG.

The vocal and guitar performances were most excellent. You are really outstanding at layering sounds without a hint of clutter. Or as Janice just said, " there's a lot going there but it never sounds busy!" Yep.

We cranked it up and as expected it all held together perfectly and sounded great.

And the video...the details were so cool like the wrist watch on the artist and the way his chops worked with the song. But it will take a few more views to begin to catch it all.

Oh..not to forget the clever write!

Lotta fun here and a lotta talent in the production.

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.
