Hi again folks,

Tune-2 was built around a little sax riff I came up with while practicing.

This is my second production with PG Music software.

All tracks are RealTracks with the exception of my 4 tenor sax tracks.

The Basic style was Jazz Fred.

Other than BIAB/RB, Audacity was used for a dash of post-mix editing (crop, Amplify, bass boost for Soundcloud).

The 10-band EQ and PG Reverb were used on most tracks, with a dash of Chorus/Echo on the saxes and guitars.

Thanks very much again for listening!

I loved this track. The production is very professional to my ears. A great example of what Realtracks are capable of.

The sax riff is very cool.
You seem to have been very subtle with the chorus effect - it's so easy to overdo and sound 80s - but you pulled it off.

Thanks folks! Rayc, I just use that as a fattener rather than an effect. Much appreciated!

Hi Warren,

Good to "meet" you. I'm a big fan of just about all kinds of Jazz. Loved this one. I always enjoy a solid bass line and this one is perfectly ion the pocket. And the organ lead riff was terrific. The sax is stellar.

Sounds great! Nice arrangement and presentation. Best to you.

Alan

Excellent swing feel, could listen to this for a very long time.

Knockout sax work with the harmony parts shining right through.

Smooth, cool, enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this tune a lot, Warren! I think it's pretty fantastic, and I think the starts-and-stops work really well in this particular piece.

Keep up the great work.

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.
