Slow Train (keep on rolling) - Sound Cloud

Hi again

Well people seem to be appreciating my efforts so here's my third new song. I actually wrote, recorded and posted this on my Soundcloud about a month ago and never got around to posting the link on here.
That means I've now got to re-open the Band-In-A-Box file and make a note of the information.
I'll post that info along with the lyrics in the next post.

Another steady tune with a country feel to it. All band in a box generated apart from the main rhythm guitar which is me playing and vocal (and backing vocals) which is me.

Again all BIAB files saved as individual wavs and then imported onto my Tascam DP24SD for addition of my parts and engineering/mixdown/mastering.

Slow Train (keep on Rolling) - Mr Jones?

Slow train keep on moving
Slow train keep on moving
Take me home again
Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
take me home, home, home again

When I left this town a long long time ago
I thought I'd make it on my own
Life on the silver screen or an old time picture show
I taught me things I'd never known

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

With all the friends I've had good times along the way
I've been to places far & wide
I've seen the desert and the sun set in LA
Keep all the memories they provide

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

But the speed of your vacation
Reveals your temprament
It's the journey not the destination
That's relevant

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

So now I'm heading back to where it all began
My body tired my mind is strong
I got through all my life without a master plan
Just made it up as I went along

Slow train keep on moving
Slow train keep on moving
Take me home again
Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

Band In A Box styles:
353 Bass - Electric, Pop Sw 085
527 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Hank, Sw 085
Realdrums, Nashville, Swing 8^2 a:Side Stick, HiHat, b: Snare, Ride
0678 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking, Country Brent, sw085
617 Pedal Steel Background Shuffle Sw136
370 Pedal Steel Background Hank Sw120
(some of these track were faded in and out to get a good mix of different runs, riffs ect.)

It's only my madness that stops me from going insane.

Revisit: Eyes on Success featuring PG Music Inc., Band-in-a-Box®, and the Updated JAWS Script

In the past, Eyes on Success featured an episode that discussed our company history and Band-in-a-Box® program with Tobin, our chief development officer, including how Band-in-a-Box® is even more accessible with the help of their JAWS screen reader scripts!

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
