I (Alan) started on several years ago on a different music creation program but haven't yet finished. I added BIAB track "Midi Strings - 49" to round out the string section. But I think I could use a few "jingle bells" (not the song, rather the bells themselves) here and there in the song. And, obviously, I need to decide what to do with the ending ... I don't like the fade. Anyway, here's where it's at right now.

It's more a backing track to a film scene or bumper music for radio rather than a stand-alone piece. No lyric - it's an instrumental.

Hi Alan and Di,

There's a lot of creativity on show in this backing track. It certainly sounds like a strong foundation for song building!

Merry Christmas to you both!
Noel

Interesting song to listen to. What program are you using for your instrument patches? Really great to see your posting again.

Thank you Noel. And that's exactly what it's meant to be - a backing track. It still needs quite a bit of work,, but getting there! Happy New Year.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
"

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!
