Math Quiz

This is a real math quiz so get your paper and pencil ready.

BiaB style - RapJazz 2 - Jazzy hip-Hop
Tempo - 90 BPM

Bass - Ample bass - YingYang
Drums - Presonus - Impact XL
Piano = Velvet - 44 MKII chorus
Guitar - Synthmaster One - DR Claptrap VS
Strings - I divided the string track into 2 tracks:
Chords - synthmaster - BT GlowFlies
Single notes - synthmaster - Pad-Add Pad
Me - trying to sing - FX-Waves vocal rider, Presonus Pro EQ, EZMix1, EZMix2

No effects on any of the instrument tracks

PS - See/hear why I do instrumentals!

A Math Quiz

Two friends and I were having lunch
It didn't cost us very much
We divided the bill three ways
So 10 bucks we each paid

For the 4 out of 3 people who have a problem with math that is 10 times 3 equals 30

The waitress took our cash
The bill was really 25 so she came back
She gave us each a buck
And took two for her good luck

For those who took new math that is 3 times 1 is 3 plus 2 is 5, 25 plus 5 equals 30.

So we only paid nine bucks each
And that was a real treat
We were happy that she took the two
But something was askew

For those who have a problem with math play close attention as this gets a little complicated

The 10 we paid minus the 1 means we each paid 9 bucks
9 times 3 equals 27, now that doesn't suck
The waitress took 2 and that was fine
But 27 plus 2 equals 29

So what I want to know is
Where in hell did the other buck go?
Where in hell did the other buck go?
Where in hell did the other buck go?

Inquiring minds want to know!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

That was fun and an interesting math teaser. I'll leave it to others to post a solution.

Haha, I've never heard you sing before! This was a fun song, something completely different.

The solution though...uh, let me see, eh..

I'll get back to you on that ;-)

Clever rhyme, but I'll need some time, to clear my mind... maybe a fiddle in the middle might help me solve this riddle.

Fun song! Nice to hear your voice. laugh

The 10 we paid minus the 1 means we each paid 9 bucks
9 times 3 equals 27, now that doesn't suck
The waitress took 2 and that was fine
But 27 plus 2 equals 29


When the waitress "took 2" from 27, that's generally considered "subtraction", not "addition". wink

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

A clever use of causing confusion by doing the math backwards instead of forwards. In reality, the Bill was $25, the waiter took $2 and three friends got $1 each.

$25 + $2 + $3 = $30
(The $27 includes the waiter's tip)

Anyway, clever song and lyrics, "Mario the rapper" grin

Very cool song Mario. Excellent vocal. Loved your lyrics. Backtrack was well done. I want to know where the extra buck went as well. I think the cook got it

Mario,

A really good mix and a creative, quirky write. I really like the insertion of the spoken word between the verses. The vocal works really well for the song (you shouldn't be shy about doing more of that!). Good stuff!

All my best,

Deej

Thanx Peter. I did have fun doing this and I'm glad it showed.

I agree that $25 + $2 + $3 = $30. But the $9 we each paid times 3 equals $27 but that does not include her tip. $27 + her tip $2 = $29 wink

Nope I am not a rapper; it's just my vocal range is 4 semitones!

Thanx for listening and commenting!

I should have said the waitress took 2 from the 30 but I couldn't sing that fast!

But you are right.

Thanx so much for listening and commenting.

I think the cook took it also because he works part time at the Internal Revenue Service!

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.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
