A Chill In The Air

Just some more playing around with BIAB 2021. I entered some chords - some unusual chords in the chorus (mostly m11ths) - and picked out a few RTs and presto! However, I did attempt to build three layers of depth in the instruments: percussions slightly out front; acoustic piano panned wide and slightly behind the percussions; and the lead guitar centered behind the acoustic piano and guitar. The acoustic rhythm guitar is faint in the mix but fills its space adequately. The lead guitar isn't much louder than the backing tracks but I liked that sound mix on this particular piece. I thought it offered a balanced and subtle blend. Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Alan

Hi Rob ...

Wow ... talk about a fast-moving board! I posted this just a few hours ago and already on page 2! But, it's really nice to see so much activity on the forum. It's been a bit slow lately.

Always a pleasure to hear from you. Thank you so much for your very nice comments. I appreciate them very much.

Hope 2021 treats you well. Take care ...

Alan

Alan,

Loved it. As I've said before...you are SO good at this!!

The wide panned piano sounds great. I always do that with the BIAB pianos using the biaural pan plugin in Studio One - so I'd be interested in how you do it...

Everything sounds great. Drums are just right. Bass is just right. Guitar sounds great. As you always do... you put together a solo tracks that sounds like it was recorded specifically for this song.

Very much enjoyed (more than once...)

Alan,

Masterful mix of a very chill song. Instrumentals are not always my favorite thing, but this one works on so many levels. Very engaging and easy on the ears. Excellent!

Best regards,

Deej

Thanks so much, Floyd. I always appreciate your kind words. I'm delighted that most of my instrumentals sound pretty decent to you. I'll send you a PM in just a bit.

Best to you and yours.

Hi Alan,

Beautifully crafted as always.

Loved the whole vibe, particularly the haunting lead guitar - that "Brent" guy has a bit of talent!

For a few minutes there I drifted away from the thin covering of
frozen snow and the grey skies here in England, to somewhere warm
and relaxing. Many thanks for that.

Hope you're keeping well and staying safe my friend.

Take care,
ROG.

Outstanding Al.

You are a master of the RT/RDs with, of course, your arrangements.

We've noted it previously but your finesse with solo RT's is remarkable.

As floyd noted the panned piano is very effective. We use a Logic Pro plug-in for that effect.

This could easily have been a bunch of guys/gals who've been playing together for years.

Excellent!

Absolutely enjoyed this from the very first note.

The combination of instrumnets is unique and very imaginative.

I agree that the guitar does not need to be prominent for this to work. It sits just perfectly in the mix.

Quality!

Hello ROG ...

Yeah Brent usually come through for me ... might have to give him a raise! I liked the word haunting for the lead track. I thought this track was a bit of an unusual choice for this song when I first listen to it, but I liked what I got when I regenerated it a few times.

Minor eleventh chords are favorites of mine but there are only so many times/places you can use them without resolving to some iteration of the five chord. But here I used them as the first two chords of the chorus. When I played around with them on guitar, I found other places to use them without them being too much of a "shock" out of their their more typical placement in the progression. More than you probably wanted to know, but for FIW, thought I'd offer the little bit of my reasoning for the arrangement.

Here in the southern US, we seldom get more than a light dusting of snow. But where I'm from originally (St. Louis, Missouri), we usually got 3 or 4 snowfalls every winter over varying depth between a few inches and a foot.

Stay warm! And many thanks for the nice comments! Wishing you well ...

Alan

Hey Guys!

Well, I think the only thing I have mastered is saying "yes ma'am" and "would you like that today or yesaterday" ro Di. Seriously, I'm not a learned musician. I don't appreciably read music and little to no music theory. But I can figure out what I want/need most of the time.

This may sound odd to you, but music has one thing in common to most western languages (particularly the romantic languages) and mathematics. And that is: they all have a basic syntax that is typical throughout their implementation I speak decent German, almost passable Spanish and enough French to get in trouble but not out of trouble. And I'm pretty good at math - didn't like it in high school but did well in math courses anyway. I can apply many of the similarities in math and languages to music and it usually works. I won't bore you the a dissertation on how I do that, but that's what I do. The correlation to math is more obvious then that of languages, I guess. But I clearly recognize the correlation of all three of them an apply it.

Sorry /bout all that. It just jumped from my fingers to the keyboard. Many thanks for your perpetual; support and and appreciation of my musical efforts. Hope both of you have a great 2021. Take care ...

Alan

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
