Re: Bob 'Notes' Norton not in displayable format

Just a guess but some list servers do not support html format.

How did you manage to receive this list in digest form? I would certainly
like to change my subscription.

I get the digest form of this list. Often (but not always), messages from
Bob 'Notes' Norton contain only:

[This message is not in displayable format]

What's up with that? I can see his messages via the web, but that kinda
defeats the convenience of reading a digest that shows up in my mailbox
every day!

Guess I'm also curious about what Mr. Notes did to offend yahoogroups...
(!)

Cheers,

Re: C-Buck.sty troubles

Robert Pickett <robert871@...>
 

Well Jim, that is a doozey. There is probably a simple explanation, but I
do not know what it is. If I were in your shoes, I would convert the file
to MIDI, then correct the key jumps in Cakewalk, erase the melody in BiaB,
and import the corrected melody from the MIDI file.

Subject: [Band-in-a-Box] C-Buck.sty troubles


I have the C-Buck style from disc #23. There is a nice little lead
guitar riff that plays throughout the style. The problem Im having it
that for some reason during playback the lead guitar will jump key.
Nothing else just the guitar part. The song I was doing went from A-D-
E but the guitar part went A-B-F#. Strange huh? It gets better. In
the next verse of the song it corrected itself and the guitar was
once again back on key. Never had this happen before and cant figure
out how to get it to stop. Is does NOT occur at regular intervals
either. Just seems to do it whenever it feels like it. HELP!!

Jim

Lots of slash chords.  Also lots of sus and "2" chords to create a moving

Quite well done, at that. However, sus chords do not equate to the style. You can put sus 2 and sus 4 chords in any song you like. You simply enter the sus chords in Band-in-a-Box.

What I am seeking is what about the rhythmic patterns that the drums, bass and comp instruments play that are Contemporary Christian and exclusive to CCM. I hear similar rhythms to other forms of pop music.

I've thought about it but in a few test feelers I put out there, I didn't get much of a response.

It would require a huge investment of time and materials. If I thought I could make enough profit to pay for my time, I would write one.

Perhaps it is because I send the messages using my mail program's default, the

Re: What Are Christian Music styles?

There are several areas of church music that can be looked at, with each
serving a different purpose.

I am basically interested in Christian Contemporary Music, since that is what I
get the most requests for.


First there are the hymns that have typically been used in a liturgical
setting and in more traditional church services. The hymns pretty much
follow the standard "church music" style (organ & choir) and are arranged for
orchestra's and choirs in the form of octavos. I don't think this is what
people are looking for when they want a Christian style for BiaB.

When I was in England on vacation last year, I made it a point to go to the
Cathedrals in the early evening to hear the Evensongs. Big stone buildings,
pipe organs, and choirs echoing off the walls and columns. Beautiful!!!


Second, you have the contemporary Christian music that is usually played on
the radio's, which as you have learned is really no different than secular
music, except for its content. [SNIP]

This is what I am getting more and more convinced about. However, I still keep
getting the "Why don't you release a CCM disk?" requests. I suspect the people
doing the requesting are listening to CCM songs exclusively and are not aware
that the background styles are pretty universal.


Finally, you have something that is sort of a combination of the above two
styles which is being used more and more in churches these days and what is
called contemporary Praise & Worship. This music you will most likely find,
is not a whole lot different style wise than the radio music in the sense
that you have modern instruments, synths, saxes, electric guitars, etc.

Would this be a little like the old African American gospel music? The kind of
music you find infused into Rhythm and Blues and some Rock and Roll?

Of course, I can't MIDI the chorus, but if you check out the MIDI file for the
Gospel 3 style on http://www.nortonmusic.com/styledemo.html am I in the ball
park?

I really liked the way that one turned out. I did it to the chord progression
of "Amazing Grace" but I put it in 4/4 and played a swing style in the
beginning and ended with a 2 beat.

(BIAB) HTML vs Plain Text AND Managing styles

Denis Ladouceur <denisl@...>
 

Hi everybody,

First, let me present myself:
I'm Denis Ladouceur (from Quebec, Canada), I'm a programmer and my favorite hobby is Music. I play guitare, piano, harmonica, drum... and I'm not too bad for singing. My next gear: An electric Godin LGXT guitar (3 voices: electric, acoustic and synth access). If you have any comments (good or bad) about this guitar, please let me know ! You can see it at http://www.lasido.com . Other thing: I'm the author of two music related software The Song Librarian and The Style Librarian for Band-In-A-Box.

I would like to add my 2 cents about HTML and Plain Text messages:

Personnaly, I can read both HTML and Plain Text message but I prefer plain text messages because:
- HTML messages are slow to "open"
- Most HTML messages need to be read when we are connected on the net because they contains active links
- HTML could contains HTML script code that could be a virus ( <<<- sorry for my english :o)
- Plain text messages are very fast and EVERYBODY can read them

So, after receiving many HTML messages from this group, I decided to configure my Email program in order to only read plain text messages. I want to be offline to take time to read all your mail :o)
Since I configured it like this, I can't read HTML messages anymore without using Internet Explorer.

Why don't we simply sent all our messages in Plain Text format ?

Other subject: Managing styles

Many of you probably already know me and my two softwares The Song Librarian (for Live performance) and The Style Librarian (for Band-In-A-Box). I must admit that The Style Librarian should be upgraded in order to support additionnal style information (like the one we can see in .LS3 files)... So, I plan to create entirely a NEW program.

For the new program:
- All existing features would be kept
- Windows 3.1 would not be supported (note: the current version can run under Windows 3.1)
- Drag and Drop would be supported
- Additionnal style information would be supported

Any suggestions for this new program would be VERY appreciated.
*** Please, put "Suggestion for The Style Librarian" in the subject. This way, it will be easier to keep all your suggestions in a separated folder.

For now, If someone is interrested in the current version of The Style Librarian, do not hesit to buy it (10$USD). The new program will be availlable at a VERY LOW price for existing users.

If you visit my homepage, don't forget to take a look at The Song Librarian, it's probably the best program for LIVE performance.

Have fun !

PS. Sorry for my huge post :o)


Best Regards,

Denis Ladouceur

I would like to chime in here and encourage all the BiaB users to
purchase Denis' two programs, but ESPECIALLY his Style Librarian.

If you have ever been bugged because non-PGMusic styles don't show up in
the Style window (when you click on the Style button), the Style
Librarian allows you to include ALL the styles on your disk, sorted into
any categories you want to in order to make your styles manageable and
easy to use.

I am thrilled to hear about the upcoming new version, which will
hopefully allow us to edit/enter such information as ideal tempo, swing
or straight, and all the information which shows up automatically for
PGMusic's styles. I realize it is possible to edit the text file
yourself so that all of this happens, but I found that so tedious that I
never pursued it. Denis has automated that process very well.

And for the price of $10 for the current version, now would be a great
time to get the program and see what it can do.
