All Sensitive and Stuff

A tongue-in-cheek title. This piece was picked up years ago as the "background music" for a you-tube video promoting a suburban California health spa. Last time I looked, I found that video (and thus the piece) had probably more viewers/listeners than ALL my other song combined. Who'da thunk it?

BIAB midi style run through hard synth with just a little love shown to the flute melody (a few changed notes/durations and a few "grace notes" added for more realism).

I likely bent a lot of "theory" with this piece, though I didn't know that's what I was doing at the time. I just typed in chords that sounded good to me following one another until I cam full-circle.

This is and was always intended to be an "instrumental". Given that all I have left of this production is this mix, that will extend forever into the future. Indeed, I'm posting it for your hoped-for enjoyment, but also to stay involved while putting off recording vocals for another piece as long as possible. Tis a real pity when a "singer-songwriter" finds himself unable to sing.

Nice instrumental! I like the changes and arrangement.

Was the melody generated by BIAB?

Yes, it was, Dave...with just a wee bit of input/encouragement from me.

Tangmo,

Very sensitive. Not stuff-y at all. smile

An enjoyable listen. The chord changes were nice...kept it interesting throughout.

Good mix overall. I liked the bass sound a lot!

Yes, I like this a lot. There is so much variety in the tune - and a great mix.

Very well done.

Very nicely done...
I enjoyed listening...
Do you wish to share the link to the YouTube video...
I think it would be interesting to see how they used your instrumental in their promotion.

Tangmo,

Pretty melody and just ethereal enough for the purpose- I enjoyed it and feel rejuvenated!
Get that voice well soon.

Hi Tangmo,

I think that track worked out rather fine for you. I am pretty impressed with the melody that was done by BiaB.

Well done!

It seems they treated your song well by making the video to fit your composition...
Congratulations.

Nicely done - flows well, and it nice and pretty, and easy on the ears. It definitely is giving me a video games feel. Almost like it'd fit in a 90's N64 or SNES game. Nicely cinematic and a solid composition.

Thanks for sharing smile

Tangmo, it's a beautiful piece! I can see how it was "picked up"! Hopefully you received the credit due you for your efforts on this! Thanks, Torrey

A real showcase on the showcase forum of the power of Biab when in the hands of a talented artist.

Easy to see how it got placed. It works very well in the vid.

We don't know enough (any) theory to know what you bent but the progressions work very nicely for us.

Thanks for the backstory.

Enjoyed it all!

Very nice, indeed! Well mixed and produced. Some nice progressions in it, and like Floyd said, the bass sound is really nice!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
