Hello friends, this is my first post in 2014, and is a funk jazz tune "a la Gato Barbieri". Not quite using the 2014 BIB version but 2013. I started it back in December and waiting to get a larger external HD to install all my stuff including the new 'everything pack" on it. But in the it is. Hope you like it.

Thanks to all for listening and the kind and encouraging words. I'm glad that you all liked it. Finally I got a 2 TB external HD. I will probably install it tomorrow and transfer all my stuff into it and install my new everything pack in it and start using the new sounds. More to come.

Excellent mix, very balanced. It's all very well done, and I think the drums are perfect.

I don't know why, but as the other instruments soloed I was keying on the percussion.

Great mix and inventive arrangement. It has that studio finished sound. A fine smooth and sorta ethereal groove all the way around. We enjoyed the listen.

Dunno if you meant for the very end to be truncated or not.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
