Bob, obviously a very short song but man you did a lot in under 2 minutes! That cello was perfect to carry this one along! The track was a beautiful vehicle to carry your thoughts! Thanks, Torrey

Looking - Brooklyn what a great rhyme. Really creative fresh visuals too - dripping chalk. The tune was a bit repetitious for my taste but I get what you're going for - it's a style thing. smile Great job on your sound and extra kudos for such fresh creative lyrics.

I'm a sucker for a cello. Another brilliant set of lyrics. You really bring the listener into the song with your imagery.

Hi Bob,

This is such a good write.

I love your use of the cello to set the tone of this composition. A sense of sadness because of moving on resonated so clearly and poignantly. These lyrics are outstanding. That three line refrain at the end of each A-section is perfect.

I mention this just in case it is not something you've thought about (which is extremely unlikely), but as I listened, I would have loved to hear a cello solo between the 2nd and 3rd A-sections -- something like in the top clip below. I'd also experiment with such solo being unaccompanied just like in the uptempo clip below -- it's very effective to go from a band sound to unaccompanied cello.

BALLAD TEMPO accompanied cello solo at 3:55

UPTEMPO unaccompanied cello solo at 4:30

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this song of yours, Bob!

All the best,
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
