Hi Folks.
I want to share a Reggae rhythm guitar UserTrack with this community. I reached out to a member of the forum chulaivet1966 after listening to a couple of  his latest tunes that he recorded with guitarist Ken Lasaine.  Ken is not BIAB user, but agreed to take a small gig to record stems for the UserTrack.  Another prominent member of the forum, pipeline, advised me through the process and put together bits into a UserTrack. Project still needs more material and love, but I consider it as a good start. I think many people do not realize the potential that UserTracks offer. PGmusic does a decent job by offering a wide variety of genres/instrumental tracks, but there will almost always be something that one would  be hungry for. I intentionally  left stems of this UT unprocessed, to be adjusted for the project. You can use onboard PG branded AutoWah or flanger or others to spice it up within the mixer/plugin context.

Here are couple of fast test renderings  to show how this UT sounds within arrangement:

ReggaeUserTrk Test 1

One more:
ReggaeUserTrk Test 2

Here is UserTrack:

Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Reggae Ken01 Ev16 4-4 90bpm.zip


Unzip, copy whole folder to your bb/RealTracks/UserTracks folder.
To use this UserTrack, "Select UserTrack for this track" by right clicking mixer track, search word Ken, it should come up.
Use it as you wish.

Ken can play in various styles. He is fair, professional and records & delivers in a timely manner. His contact / website: https://www.kenlasaine.com/

Very nice. Thanks to you, chulaivet1966 and Pipeline for putting this together. Impressive. I'd love to see more UserTracks submitted in this way.

Howdy Misha....

I'm very pleased you contacted Ken for what you wanted and were able to work together.
I was quite happy to help.

I have already mentioned how reasonable and easy it was to work with Ken.
I would recommend employing his talent and creativity in any music context.

I know nothing of creating "user tracks" so I may have to study up a bit. smile

Mornin' Charlie....

Thanks for chiming in and the kind comment.

Howdy Pipeline....

Many thanks to you also for the guidance you provided to accomplish what Misha wanted.

Have a great day everyone.

Yeah,

I LOVE user tracks.

When I first got BIAB years ago this was the first feature I went nuts about.

On a particular manic/hyper day smile I picked a long chart in BIAB and recorded about 12 different guitars doing stuff I use a lot, various finger picking or personal strumming and "chunk a chunk" patterns I use on electric or acoustic backing parts on a lot of song styles.

My thought: why keep doing all this stuff over and over if you can do it once!!

It also struck me that I am going to be quite happy if I get to 100 and can hear how I used to play at the press of a button. Neat.

smile

Thanks Misha & Pipeline,
I've incorporated both into a project I already had up n running.
Now I won't have to play guitar for it but man, the bass is going to be hard work. The BIAB reggae bass is okay, but only just. Time to get some practise in.
The Ken track is cool & the Pipeline single note stuff fills a hole very well.

G'day mate....

I'm glad to see Ken's track is well received and has generated some interest.
I haven't studied the "User Track" process but I'm threatening to check it out. smile

Have a great day...

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
