Hi Ernesto,

Wow! This sounds very cool... very classy.... and sits very comfortably on my ears. You've done a great job putting this together. I love your bass line and the overall mix is really good. I compliment you on your use of midi and Realtracks!

All the best,
Noel

Thank you Noel
Im very happy you liked it.
I liked the outcome of my first experiment but his time I did not manage to change the sax notes, I need to familiarize myself with BB before to do more complicated stuff.
BB is crashing a lot in my PC so I had done the best I can in a couple of days keeping things easy...
Still with the crashes, I love BB
Thanks you again!

Hello!

I really enjoyed this. I'm a big fan of smooth jazz and smooth r&b. This has elements of both. Great guitar work - love the tone and the fx! And that bass line is simply killer!!!

Pretty cool sax, too. Totally enjoyed it. Sweet!

Alan

Hey EMG

Great Song, great display of tracks and seamless guitar transitions.

This is why I have always loved/ wanted a PRS, such a beautiful tone!

Great Work all around!

Hi again, Ernesto.

I hope you don't mind but I thought it was probably a good idea for me to mention a couple of things regarding the below comments you made in your reply to me.

ONE

You won't be able to change the notes that the sax plays. Because it is a Realtrack, it is an audio recording and what you are hearing are the phrases that the studio musician played when putting the Realtrack together. The individual notes played by the sax are not available as audio.

The notation that accompanies many Realtracks is there to give users an indication of what was played. It doesn't control the performance.

Still with the crashes, I love BB

The program should not be crashing. If you have the Windows version of the software, it sounds like you need to activate "Run as administrator". To do this...

1. close BIAB

2. right-click on the program's startup short-cut

3. select "Properties"

4. under the "Compatibility" tab, activate the options "Run as administrator"

5. Start BIAB

Also... if you have the Windows version of BIAB, you'll need to set Realband up so that it, too, runs with administrator permissions.

Hope this helps,
Noel

Wow - I really enjoyed this! You absolutely killed it on the guitar. The backing tracks matched perfectly, and everything really compliments each other here. As others mentioned to, the bassline is top notch and you did an awesome job with the mixing.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Love your backtrack. You have some very cool phrasing’s with your guitar work. The PRS has some very cool tones tucked away inside it. Nice job Look forward to hearing more of your tunes

Your guitar playing sounds great!

Sorry to hear you've got problems with BiaB - Hopefully you can get that sorted out.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very good work - I enjoyed your guitar playing ( expressive and not too busy) and look forward to more when your BiaB issues are sorted.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
