Hi all,
Here's a french bolero.
Patrick Fournerat has written the lyrics and he sings.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/jai-pris-la-route

RD SalsaBolero
RT 711 Acoustic Bass
RT 1903 Acoustic Guitar
RT 1904/1905 Piano
RT 1902 Solo Acoustic Guitar

Here's an approximate translation :

I hit the road,
unaware of what it costs,
distant countries
where the future is uncertain.
Bush land,
snow, sand mixed with wind.
Overcoming the fear
always going forward.

Walking on the paths,
a guitar in my hand.
Sleeping at the foot of a tree,
tired of palaver.

I hit the road,
preferring to stay on the margin.
No more chains,
I left quarantine.
The landscapes
that I cross make me wise.
No luggage,
but resourcefulness and courage.

Walking on the paths,
a guitar in my hand.
Sleeping at the foot of a tree,
tired of palaver.

Christian,
another cool Latin flavored tune. Production and vocals are crisp and professional!
I like this type of music very much.
Maybe try Putumayo label? They release many musical compositions that are inline with this. Most of their albums are compilations by various artists.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Interesting chords, nice production, good lyrics (can't speak to the actual French, of course), well sung.

Can't get much better than that.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Merci à Patrick Fournerat et Christian: tres bonn.
I loved it... made me think of my high school French and how bad I was at it...
Marcher sur la route,
une glace à la main.
Assis dans le caniveau,
fatigué de demain.

Pat is where it's at for your natural language songs.

Robert said "moody and musical" and we think that is a great description.

The vocal well represented the fine lyric, melody and arrangement as did the mix.

We enjoyed it!

Hi Chris,

This is a wonderful listen!

You and Patrick have created a truly outstanding composition.

You've arranged the song and mixed its production really, really well. Everything sat extremely comfortable in my headphones.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks Janice, Bud and Noël.
I'm glad you find the mix good because mixing is not something I master very well. Christian

Nicely done! Really smooth, and the production on this is gorgeous. A clean mix with everything just right. Top notch vocals too, and I appreciated the English translation of the lyrics.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

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.
