Here is a musical reaction to all the dirty little secrets oozing out of the crevices in recent years...
If you are not guilty...
I hope you enjoy this throwaway song from 2018 FAWM.

Technical Info:
Song: MeToo.Mgu
Style: NG004x.Sty (Changed to Real Tracks but that information has been lost blush )

Jim you are very good at using simple little musical phrases and singing on top of them with a memorable lyric! You have once again produced something that really works! Thanks, Torrey

Yep, the video is fun but the sentiment is powerful and the movement is long overdue.

Torrey pretty much nailed our thoughts about the write and production.

Throwaway? We are glad you didn't and shared it with us!

Fun and to the point.
The FAWM deadline seems to work well to get the ideas flowing.

love it Jim

well done, video is excellent

catchy, timely, to the point

we've become a super paranoid and butt-hurt society

there's legitimate problems and then there's college students

needing a time out because words and reality offends.

good vocals, love it

Jim,
Ha ha! funny! I agree 100% with Kenny's comments above.
I guess it is one of the most effective and smart ways to show flaws in society - through satire.
Nicely put together and performed! I wish you well & not to be eaten by hypocrites.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Cute song and video Jim!! Yes, the me too movement has taken out a lot of people....and the vast majority (at least) seem to be deserving of that. Fun stuff!! Take care. Greg

Jim,

Love the sound of this one—very catchy, some really great instrumentation. And married with that “me too” refrain, it borders on ear worm territory. Well done!

All the best,

Deej

Nice!

I find it interesting that people are giving it diametrically opposed interpretations.

It reminds me that sometimes, saying less is actually saying more, because it allows people to read their own ideas into lyrics.

In any event, I enjoyed the listen. laugh

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

A clever write.

A good production. Fits the song perfectly.

A good mix.

Well done (again!)

Thanks...
For your listen, comments, & support...
I must admit I had my doubts about the value of this tune...

Thanks Robert...
Your support & comments are always appreciated...
I agree with you about the value of FAWM deadline...
However with Biab 14 songs ideas in 28 days is pretty easy to reach...
If the participant doesn't mind giving up some sleep.

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.
