Hi, friends !

It has been just too long time since I was able to post
on the forum ! I truly regret that ! Earlier I was very much involved with
barbershop quartet singing and then there was the trip to Norway I
had to do together with Li - we had to do it before she had to undergo
hip surgery - you know when they take your leg off and put a titan ball upon
it before putting everything back ! So, dear friends, I have for the time being
been her nurse but luckily she´ll getting better day by day !

Talking about Norway, that most beautiful country of my ancestors, I just
finished an mp3 which I am displaying for you here as well as some
pictures from our most exciting trip to that National Park !

Recorded with mixcraft pro 8, comp and rev used.

The Style used is:_PUPLIFT.STY and the instros used are:

Bass: 1268, Synth Pad:1278, Drums: RD:s Praise Worship Uptempo
Guitar 1: 1272, Guitar 2: 1853, Guitar 3:1260 soloist
Vocal Aahs: 3063

Hi Dani,

This is very, very engaging.

I love the groove and your singing sits really well in the mix. In addition, your vocals are warm and comfortable on the ears. Congratulations on a fine job!

I hope that the land of Grieg was a wonderful adventure for you both smile

My best wishes to you and Li,
Noel

Dani,

So different from tunes I have heard from you! Love it! Sounds great in all respects. Vocals are A+. Norway is on my short list smile

Hope recovery goes fast for Li.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Dani,
you've tamed almost all the isbilant sounds and seem to be singing in a register that fits like a glove.
ACE effort.

Hi, Noel !:))


Thank you so much for your
most kind words !:))
Grieg, yeah, it really
is Grieg country with
trolls behind every turn
(chuckle.There is also
the entrance to hell (helvete)
as the old vikings believed !
(more chucklin´).You can see
those giant potholes over
60 meters deep among my pictures !

Very nice, Dani! You are showing your versatility here. I will be praying for Li. I had a total hip replacement about 6 years ago. Take good care of her, and make sure she does her exercises, and she'll be like new before long!

So nice to hear a new song from you!

Steve

Nicely done, Dani smile It's a really cozy tune - your vocals work fantastically well with the instrumentation, and it's nicely catchy too. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice arrangement, hard to categorize, so sounds quite unique. Your voice is very warm in this range. Never been to Norway, but you describe it and its beautiful nature in a very attractive way.

Hi, Steve !

Thank you so much for
your most kind words !
You can rest assured that
I will take good care of my
sweetheart - she´s getting better
by the day but have some pain still!
Soon she will start undergoing
physiotherapy to get some more
movement into the leg !

You, Steve have gone thru these
phases so you really know what
a gruelling operation it is !
Hope you are allright yourself ?

Cheers
Dani

Talking about Norway

Not been around much myself due to … well life things.

This was not your normal stuff of the surfing era, But you know what I enjoyed this and it was just as good on my side.

Bon Voyage .

Not what I was expecting, but (as usual) a pleasant listen. I liked the use of the AAAHs.

Thanks for posting the pictures as well - a bit wet and grey, but looks like fun! smile

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

Dani,

This has a cool 80’s alt-pop vibe . . . love the band, and the backing vocals are nicely done. For me, I’d like to see the lead vox come forward just a touch in the mix, but that’s a subjective personal preference, so weigh it against other feedback and your own instincts. A lot of pretty flowers decorating the tune along the way—nice accents and depth on the instrumentation. Enjoyed it!

All the best,

Deej

Very nice Dani. You sound very nice in that register.

Your vocal, the write, the band and the mix are all excellent.

Enjoyed it and best to Li!

PS: Hey, even though I am a southern US guy almost all the DNA matches I get are from Scandinavian countries and particularly Norway. It is a lovely country that Janice and I should visit!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
