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!

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!

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Forum thread: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=467504

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
