Hi All
This is a song made between Musescore 3 and Band in a box midi.
I rendered this straight from Musescore 3 in which I mixed it with only Pan,Chorus and Reverb .All the backing track midi are from Biab and all the instruments are free ones from Musescore3.So a big shout out to Musescore 3 which is an excellent upgrade and also to BIAB Midi which is fantastic to work with .
It wasnt possible to sweeten the mix much just up and down volume wise.I did a five minute master in Ozone 8.The Genre I am calling Choral Pop for the want of a better term!

Let me know me if you are entertained! urs Hugh

Nicely done...

But I'll probably get the LinuxAppImage pretty soon.

Hey there Hugh2, fantastic choice of instrumentation on this. The different elements really glue well together and a solid key signature choice too. The reverb really helps piece it all together. Keep it up!

Nice poppy tune.
Reminded me of Yazoo. For fun I superimposed your tune to Yazoo "Only You" song, sounded pretty interesting.
(played S.Cloud + Youtube at same time)

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Hugh, yes this tune. Open your song in SC and the Youtube link in different windows and just try to play them together. Of course they will not be in sync, but I thought soundscape was pretty cool and worked well smile

Oh yes. Definitely entertained. Loved the strength of the progression which (by itself) was quite melodious in passages. Nice work with the production and dynamics in the backing, ebbing and flowing. I also liked the ending. Unexpected and playful.

Wow - you did a fantastic job! Flows beautifully, and it sounds very lush especially considering it is strictly MIDI. Very dynamic in it's execution, and I love the way it pulses. Very easy and pleasant to listen to.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

Thanks Guys for the encouraging comments.Glad you found it enjoyable.
Hope to put the vocals to it at some stage,They go something like this

He Plays His Cards Close To His Chest,
He'll Make You Think Their The Best,
He'll Steal Your Hearts,Your Minds and
Then He'll Steal Your Country........

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.
