Hi all, I have only been using Band in a Box and Real Band for a few months and I am still learning (so please be gentle with me!)
This track "Weeping Willow" used BB and Real Band, was recorded and mixed on a SONAR X2 DAW and mastered using the T-Racks 3 mastering suite. I use a Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium HD soundcard.
I think BB and Real Band is the best software package I have ever used!!!

Weeping Willow


I hope the link works. Enjoy. Malcolm.

Malcolm,

Welcome! Terrific first post! An enjoyable listen.

Really well mixed - this ain't your first rodeo, I'd say...
Would be nice to hear the electric piano take a lead for part of it..

You've hit the ground running... looking forward to more...

Nice job .... One of the things I loved in the early days (with BB) was the ability to mix instruments from other genre's into whatever I was working on.

Fiddle and steel guitar for example into jazz or funk...or hard rock...

Imagine the looks from the players of those styles if you tried to get them together in a room to play....

enjoyable listen

Hi Malcolm,

Very enjoyable listen. Just wondering did you do the fiddle playing in this one?

Welcome aboard!

Later,

Folks here are of the gentle nature even when they have nits to pick...but you've come aboard with a fine production. I like the rhythmic mashup a lot and the fiddle sounds fantastic. Thanks for the post.

When I read through the comments, I found myself nodding as I read floyd's. I completely agree with what he's said. Welcome to the forum.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Malcolm, Wonderful first post. I loved the combination of styles, fiddle with smooth jazz combo. Agreed with Floyd about the electric piano solo at some point. I was actually waiting for it, never the less, great song.

Hi Malcolm,

welcome to the forum.
Very nice mix of styles.
A little bit of variation wouldn't be bad.

Malcolm, great arrangement, really liked the instruments and overall layout. A nice listen. The electric piano in the backing fits really well, with nothing getting in the way. Great and interesting choice of instruments. Nice....
