I recently have posted some older tracks but this one is fresh. I feel the RealDrums in the BIAB program are the best sounding drums one can use in their project!(For me at least) They alone are worth the price of admission! For this track I used only RealDrums from the program and played all the other instruments myself. This is a Blues/Rock track that deals with some heavy subject matter, but was inspired to put together over the last couple of weeks. Lyrics are in YouTube video. Thanks in advance for listening and may God bless! Torrey

Torrey,

This is really well done.

Impressive that you did all the parts yourself.

Cool opening. Nice guitar work. Cool "figure" at 1:00... had a sorta YES feel... the guitar at 1:40 is exceptional! - all the fills after that are, too...

Nice mix. Everything works. Nice stuff in that bridge...

An excellent piece of music!

Excellent piece of music - reminds me of recent Clapton.
Really strong songwriting and great musicianship all round.
Nice vocal effect on the slow part.

Hi Torrey,

Well, Rob has something to say about this:
Such a cool video, you sure have many talents wink

The sound reminds us very much of Donald Fagen (but we think we said that once before).
And that sure is a compliment!

Your impressive musical talents are all on display here - this sounds great played loud! I always enjoy the pop sophistication you bring to your songs and this is one of your best.
Highly professional, sung and played with great feeling.

We think Floyd summed this up pretty good. We watched the YouTube movie ... totally cool and exceptional. You are a gifted player, writer and arranger with terrific technical skills. Congrats on a steallar project. We loved it - and that's the truth! Standing "O"!

Torrey, and exceptional write.

This has a sensational feel, it is vibrant, and musically incredibly strong.

The vocals and harmonies are not any less than absolutely excellent, and clearly a fantastic musical contribution with your instrumentation works.

This song has it all.

Torrey,

Back listening again (6th or 7th time in the past couple of days). This is such a great production - watch the YouTube version each time. Just wanted to say once again how much we enjoy this and compliment you on your wonderful work. This isn't just a great song - it's a fabulous project!

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training!

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!
-Norm Weinberg

User Post - Save as Video

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

Forum user JoanneCooper has just shared her Band-in-a-Box video using this feature! Check out her post here, or click here watch her YouTube video.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
