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.

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.

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.
