Please forgive me for posting this so soon after my previous post. But I saw over in the Shout Box that this is National Funk Day. So, I wanted to get this one in. I'm leaving town for the rest of the day and didn't want to miss this opportunity. Again apologies.

Will post the BIAB tracks when I get back this evening. Thanks!

Very Funky Alan and Di.

This has certainly captured an excellent feel, smooth, real smooth.

Going back for another listen.

Well Alan you know that we're in the same page here. Very nice piece here. As a matter of fact I should have included the muted wa wa guitar in my last one, very much used in the 70's.
In fact I might still do that. Liked it a lot.

Great work here! You captured a perfectly relaxing vibe here - it was easy to just listen and dry away. I wouldn't change a thing! Nothing like some good old fashion calming funk music smile

Thanks so much for sharing!

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

#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.
