Darned, all the superlatives are already taken.

Everything is great, but that vocal... so good. laugh

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

Yeah, this REALLY good y'all.

I too felt a little Don Henley, but it was totally original.

Was that you guys playing?

Killer song!!

This is great Alan and Greg! smile

Love the eagles vibe happening on this, very cool indeed.

Great progression and arrangement, and that lead guitar is right on the money. Loved the lyric, and man, those vocals!

Outstanding collaboration!

Alan Here ...

A big thank you to all who have commented so nicely. Greg really put a shine on this one! To have such a voice ... sigh. And again, a big thanks to Greg for working his magic with this!
I've been kind of hit and miss lately ... life got in the way. But, should be back more often real soon.

Again, thanks to all ...

Alan

Compelling well written story song. Y'all created a wonderful collab. The vocals, arrangement and that guitar solo really made the hotel california vibe your own. Kept my attention throughout. As Mario likes to say this one is a keeper for sure. Impressive!

I'm always happy when an instrumental is "converted".
This is a grand job by all concerned - including BIAB.

Beyond the phrasing it's just a great vocal and harmony. And write, and arrangement and mix. Super cool melody.

We love forum collabs and this is one of the top ones showing off the talents of two forum members and the power of BiaB.

Kudos!

THanks J and B. LOVE your new one with Floyd!! Killer! Take care. Greg

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
