I'm really digging the vibe on this! It's got a really nice groove to it, and I like the panning on it too. An excellent mix for sure! Thanks for sharing, MusicStudent smile

Mr. Hoch...

A "shout out" from a former Chicagoan from birth, here! smile

"In A Latin Mood" is a sensuous and seductively rhythmic piece of music-making, sir. The _BOSSOUL.STY is shown off to ear-catching advantage, here, augmented by the "Spanish blues" feel of your minor chords. The composition invites close-contact, one-on-one dancing of the kind that is characteristic of a hot tango. Your vocal count-in lends an immediate sense of a "live" musical performance to the song.

You got my vote on this one!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Absolutely enjoyed this Dan. Sometimes Latin & Instrumentals just go so very hand-in-hand together.

This is very smooth. Can listen to this again and again.

Dan,

That is a fun video to watch. I'm glad you were able to get everything worked out so you can show the video.

You sure do have some nice "toys" to play with. Is that Strum 1 or Strum 2 by Kontakt? As you noted in your video BiaB creates some really nice guitar strum midi patterns as long as you have a realistic sounding guitar sound module to playback the patterns.

Excellent example of what can be accomplished with the right tools on hand.

It is Strummed Acoustic 2. But BIAB is not Strumming. Biab is sending the chord chart as midi (whole/ half or quarter notes depending on how many chords per bar). SA2 picks up every note from BIAB and it plays the notes according to its "sampled" strummed rhythm patterns. It is incredible.

Thanks for the comments.

Correction: For the record: As I looked closer it appears that I used the biab "midi piano track" to send to the SA2 not the chords output track.

Why thank you Charlie, I appreciate the kind words. While the mp3 of In a Latin Mood continues on line, I pulled the video, The Making of In a Latin Mood. Music is the Grand Illusion, therefore, some secrets were meant to be secret. grin

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.
