Some have pointed out the 56k MP3 conversion didn't cut it.
It's a decent tune. Here's a WAV remix. Sorry, I realized after posting I had only thought I had cut the length down to :03:10

I was going to compare it to your original...
But I guess you removed it (404 Error)...
IMHO... You don't have to upload a wave file unless thats what you want...
Though a 56k MP3 is a pretty low ,,,
A 160k or 192k MP3 should yield sufficient sound quality at a lower file size.

Yeah, I did remove it, Jim. My bad, but really did sound terrible. That instaud.io has a limit. The version on there now is 256 bit MP3 and under the limit. It is a good site to pass tracks around among friends.

Ed,
yes! Sounds clear and full! Very nice and enjoyable blues tune indeed!

Thank you for sharing!

P.S. I would stay at a minimum of 256k MP3 to retain quality.

Misha.

Def better. To be honest, in this age of FLAC et al I won't listen to less that a 320 if I have a choice.

Nicely done - really calming to the ears. Nice and peaceful, and the format of this one is nicer as others pointed out. You should be proud of this one smile

Thanks for sharing!

Much better. I always upload as good a quality wav file as I can, and let Soundcloud do the conversion. Just make sure there is no digital clipping in the wav file. Soundcloud will compress it and adjust the volume to their standards, so it's better to have the overall volume not too hot. I am usually fairly happy with the results from Soundcloud.

This version sounds much better, and more clear. I enjoyed it!

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

SC and others recommending loading a .wav for the best sound following the run through their compression algorithms. FWIW that's what we've uploaded for many years.

This is very nice and many apologies for missing it the first time around. Man, there are a LOT of songs being posted!

We love the blues so this was right in our wheelhouse!

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.
