now that is the icing.
Very good!

Robert


We have done a few upbeat tunes, but you are right, mostly we do slow minor key stuff. I have another upbeat one in the works, but next up will be a slow ballad that Chris wrote.

Thanks for the listen and comments, Robert, appreciated!

Hey y'all, this is over the top good.

The funky groove, the write, the fabulous slinky vocal, the killer guitar, the cool arrangment and the mix...everything is slap down in the pocket for us.

This is one of the tunes where we'd rather just listen more than to parse things out. For us it ALL works.

We listen to music like this (and related to this) daily and this is as good as the best we hear. And we mean that with all the sincerity we can muster!

J&B

PS Yeah I use CLA bass and the bass rider but haven't nailed the clarity that you get. As in the way it cuts through the mix but steps on nothing. Nice.
PPS Glad you added it to SC so we can add it to our playlist smile

This has very different feel than most of the tunes I have heard by Blue Attitude. Got this gospel hint of spice in this. Very positive! Vocals, guitar, production is at expert level. Dave, sweet solo!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.



Hi Misha,
Well, the new, colorful skin is not going to last all summer I'm afraid, next one up will be a minor key ballad smile
Thanks for your positive comments, it is appreciated!

I'll listen again at SoundCloud. A few too many buffering "breaks" and likely not where you intended them. smile


"Fonky"! I like that!

Glad you liked the false ending, that was a last minute addition.

Hi Peter, yeah, I had fun with the last solo. Always nice to get comments like that from a fellow guitarist!

I can not be recorded in a ordinary 'home studio', I think.

Hans Berkhout


Hi Hans,

Thanks for the listen and comments, and thanks for listening to the other song also!

All of the songs we do are just in a home studio with no outboard equipment, just the soundcard into the PC. I do have quite a collection of plug-in effects from both waves and iZotope though which really helps.

Impressive harmonies really iced the funk vibe cake for me with the sexy smooth lead vocal and the bass opening was a great choice for catchy retro flavor. Great job.

Fantastic mix, fun listen!


The fake ending was an afterthought, never done that before in a song, but I thought it turned out pretty good. Thanks for the listen and comments, I appreciate it!

Man, we really need summer to arrive here! With the exception of a couple of nice days it's been much colder and wetter than normal for this time of year.

Thanks for the support, Greg!

As usual with Blue Attitude productions, the standard is very high.
I could listen to Dave's guitar all night. Love the tone, love the notes.
Chris's singing is beautiful. Listen to the change in her voice when she sings 'and butterflies' in the first verse. Sublime.
Thanks for sharing.
Mike

Dave,

I missed this one!

The backing is out-of-this-world outstanding.

I absolutely love this arrangement, Your playing is super and along with Chris's lyrics and vocals, the two of your take this presentation to a level of professionalism that I strive to achieve but have yet to attain. This is as radio-friendly as anything I've ever heard anywhere!

In a word... BRILLIANT!

All the best,
Noel

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.
