HERE WE ARE AGAIN

Just a little something mellow for the new year, which hopefully is melodic enough to not scare away members with "musical allergies" to certain genres wink

Fundamentals, per usual:

Style is M_JAZMID.STY

Style MIDI Instruments are : Fender Bass (34), Acoustic Piano (1),
MIDI SuperTracks in style: ~~1917:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 110
MIDI SuperTracks in style: ~~1896:Piano, Rhythm Jazz Sw 110
RealTracks in song: ~1210:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110


I used PG's electric bass plugin rather than the default acoustic, a particularly good partner to the Mike LeDonne piano ST I used, for a bit of 'modern' flavour, rather than the default ST of the style. The added guitar is then just for a fill-out of the overall soundscape. Soloist guitar courtesy of Oliver Gannon.


And that's really all there is to this one - Enjoy! cool

Nice and mellow. Great performance.

I'm becoming more and more a fan of the midi capabilities and features of BIAB and your song is a great showcase. I thought the added guitar fit really well. Good job all around.

Enjoyed my listen.

Charlie

Janice’s first comment was “carefree and happy.” She also said it reminded her of the Diana Krall “Live In Paris” group.

Excellent composition, arrangement and a crystal clear mix.

No allergies here.

Oh wow, there's a reference I so am not worthy of (I just adore Krall), but thank you for the listen blush

Eddie Mister Cool Icelander this is excellent. Love those vibs! What VSTi did you use?

Super cool laid back song that you should be very proud off!

Excellent song - two thumbs up.

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!
