Hey Dan,

You're a bit of a trailblazer! Leading the way so confidently and competently and being the first to submit. I enjoyed my listen. I love Latin-jazz!

All the best,
Noel

I'm really digging the vibe on this! It's got a really nice groove to it, and I like the panning on it too. An excellent mix for sure! Thanks for sharing, MusicStudent smile

Mr. Hoch...

A "shout out" from a former Chicagoan from birth, here! smile

"In A Latin Mood" is a sensuous and seductively rhythmic piece of music-making, sir. The _BOSSOUL.STY is shown off to ear-catching advantage, here, augmented by the "Spanish blues" feel of your minor chords. The composition invites close-contact, one-on-one dancing of the kind that is characteristic of a hot tango. Your vocal count-in lends an immediate sense of a "live" musical performance to the song.

You got my vote on this one!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Absolutely enjoyed this Dan. Sometimes Latin & Instrumentals just go so very hand-in-hand together.

This is very smooth. Can listen to this again and again.

#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.

Have you made a video of your song using this feature? Share it to our Forum!
