Beautiful Mario – felt like a SpaceMan in a Red Tesla Roadster somewhere between the Earth and the Sun!
Soft, dreamy and relaxing. Very well done – thanks for sharing!

Dan, the only stupid question is one that you do not ask.

The style Oceans - Very Slow New Age - is a BiaB MIDI style from set #61 MIDI. I have found that working in MIDI is much easier to manipulate data. Many people here are experts at using RTs but I prefer MIDI for many reasons. One main one for using MIDI for New Age is that you can slow down the tempo as slow as you want and not get any artifacts. You can also change sounds and rewrite parts with no problems. BUT and this is a big one, you have to have good MIDI sound sources. You have a good start one to start with in sforzando. If you google/bing SFZ sounds you will find a lot of them from free to a few dollars. There are others like Kontakt or Sample Tank 3 that are much better but also a lot more costly.

I hope this helps and thanx for the listening and the very nice comments.

This song was perfect for morning coffee and looking out the music room window at our forest. And the wind chimes were adding a nice touch to your song.

Nice!

Thanx so much for listening. It must be nice to look out your window and see a forest! I envy you so much! I look out our house and see more houses. I cam from the country with the nearest neighbor a half a mile away and woods a few yards from the house and I miss that.

Thanks for the song man. I see stars, and it's really, really cold, but I see an orange rock, and maybe there is some food over there, but I also see fire, so I dunno.

But man, I hope we'll see one another again!!

In my Bowie voice I say

Ground control to Major Dave
I'm glad you liked the song today
But don't feel dismissed
I'll do another, promise

Masterfully done.
That, I might find in the New Age bookstore in with
collections of meditation music. That's one of those
overlooked audiences.

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.

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!
