As promised my new album is came out last Friday. All the instrumentals were made using BIAB real tracks and real drums. A few tracks also include choir ahs using the Xpand by AIR VST instrument. Vocals, mixing and mastering were done in Cubase Elements 9. You can listen on any of the following music services.

I just did a quick listen of a few track and day-um! Thank you google play!

I have to say it REALLY sounds like you are using real musicians in a studio.

The production is great! From performance, especially vocals, to mix and master.

This is one of the more professional examples I've heard on the forums.

Well thank you. I put a bit of time into mixing and mastering for that reason. I wanted it to sound the best it could.

Samuel,

I sampled parts of all the songs (at Bandcamp). They all sound good - the mixes are all well balanced and moving from song to song they are all at a good, constant level. Well done. It's also a good cohesive sound - sounds like an album, not a "thrown together bunch of songs". (could be having a small complement of BIAB at the time worked in your favor - though I am looking forward to see/hear what you do with the full thing...)

Hope you sell a bunch of 'em.

Thank you everyone for listening and your kind words. I'm glad everyone is enjoying this. I am so happy to have found Band In A Box and this great community around it. I never dreamed I would be creating such great sounding songs on my own without spending boat loads pf money to hire musicians and producers. BIAB is certainly a god send for independent musicians.

Thank you David. I appreciate you listening. I am very proud of how this album came out. Many of these songs have been stuck as acoustic demos for years because I didn't have the means to produce them how I heard them in my head. It's only because of BIAB that i have been able to give true life to these songs.

I just upgraded to the BIAB 2018 UltraPAK and cant wait to really get digging into some new stuff.

Wow... This great stuff. I've listened all the way through.. Congratulations and best success with sales.

I agree with everyone else that the writing, arrangement, production and performance are all top notch. It would have cost you a lot of money to duplicate this sound with pro session musicians in a studio and honestly, no one will know the difference if you don't tell them.

This album is very deserving to be heard.

Charlie

( I cheated and listened to Moonshine Chronicles too. Did you produce it with BIAB also? It's got some good tracks)

No Charlie, that album was done about a year before I had ever heard about BIAB. I've only been working with the program since about September. Some of the tracks on that album I licensed and some I created with Ignite by AIR.

Thanks for checking out both of them.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows - User Programmable Functions

But, what if you want to be able to tell the program to do MORE than that?

Head to Chapter 14: User Programmable Functions within the online manual, and you'll learn more about programmable features like:

The StyleMaker
Create brand-new styles or edit existing styles!

Making RealDrums Styles
Template file included! You can either record a drummer, or you can piece together a wave file using drum loops!

The Harmony Maker
Create or edit your own (or existing) harmonies!

The Soloist Maker and The Melodist Maker
Define your own Soloists or Melodists in whichever style you'd like!

The Guitarist Maker
The program will intelligently arrange any melody to a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. There are many preloaded Guitarists to choose from, or you can customize existing Guitarists’ settings or make your own Guitarists from scratch using this feature.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!

YouTube Find - Your First 15 Minutes with Band-in-a-Box
