This song came together after I was playing with some harmonics and the track got built around it. I was going to upload it then I thought Robert might be able to convert it to a song with lyrics.

This is the original song:

Changes

This is the band:

It's fun and interesting to hear the original.

When we were about half way through Janice said that it reminded here of part of the soundtrack for the movie Dune. It does have a cinematic feel.

You, the white strat, the amp and the fx created some fine engaging guitar over some well thought out backing tracks.

I'm not knowledgeable (but trying to learn a bit) about guitar fx but they created a really cool sound particularly with the delay.

Nice!

Really cool sounding...
You play so well & tastefully...
I'm glad you included a link to "The Atlas of Remote" so I could compare the two...
I also really liked that collaboration.

Scott,

Nice to hear the original... It has a "majestic" feel to it. Distinctive.

Sound like a soundtrack for a large army heading into battle...

The Wah is cool!! Enjoyed the listen.

Hi Scott,

That's a very nice solo you did in this song! That is something I must learn one day...
And I liked you used that DOOMED-style as I did with Strnger in my house (second part).
You only slowed it down a bit more. I nearly could sing along.

Bye for now,
Hans

Nice tasty playing - some very nice textures and dynamics - wrapped in a pretty melodic phrases.
Nicely done.

Scott, this is definitely movie material, maybe a march for an emperor. Super chops, as always, but your tones took it over the top for me. Great work here.

Robert's vocal is excellent in the collaboration version.

Scott you should be very proud of the original version and both of you should be very proud of the collaboration.

As others have said, it's got a very cinematic feel, a slow and steady march forward. Very evocative.

This is great. I love all the textures and layers. Has kind of a Daniel Lanois vibe which I love.

The kind of piece that puts some ooomph in your step. Cinematic? Yes...but also the soundtrack for the best way to get through a day--calm and purposeful. Good stuff.

This is really cool!!! Reminds me of the songs of the 70's.....the longer you listen, the deeper you get. Love the way the drums work with that melody which has kind of a Celtic feel. Wonderful work guys!!! Take care. Greg

Hi Scott,

It's great to hear the song before it became "Atlas of the Remote".

You've definitely got a knack for making instrumentals very engaging for the listener. This one was no exception.

I'm really pleased that it engaged Robert to write words because "Atlas of the Remote" is one of my all-time favourites from the two of you.

Thank you for posting this and giving us all an insight into your song's journey.

All the best,
Noel

Good to hear the original again... I think you added that wah on this version?,and maybe a bit more verb on the lower guitar track.
Interesting to notice now how much quicker Atlas of Remote ended up- the pace here is highly cinematic as others noted.

Thank Hans Glad you liked the song. I thought the doomed style was cool. I put up the chords and the key I wanted an just started going through the style and soon as it started to play ideas started popping into my head. Very cool software for developing tracks.

Thanks Mario I am really glad you like the song. I know you like to do allot of experimentation to with your guitar and wind controller. This one was allot of fun to work on and made really special when Robert incorporated his vocal and lyrics with it..

Thanks Noel for the awesome comments. After I had finished the song I was preparing to release it to the forum but thought I would run it by Robert first and see if he felt it was suitable for lyrics and a vocal. He made a few adjustments to the arrangement just like that he made the song even more special. So glad you liked the song.

Late getting to the party here, but better late than never I guess!

This is really cool, Scott, well thought out and arranged.

My favorite part is towards the end with the cello with the wha-wha guitar, but it's all good.

Enjoyed!

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: 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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
