Mike,

A very pretty melody. The fiddle coming in took me by surprise... and then carried me away; its a lovely RT - did you add effects to the original?
Fine work.

Robert

Thank you all for listening. I'm trying here something different in BIB although I have done some New Age and Ambient music before but not with this software so I cannot post them here. So far I feel pretty comfortable wit it.
Robert, the only effect applied to the violin is a little reverb to give it some spatial sound to it.
Torrey, something I cannot do is lyrics, so I envy you all for it. However if somebody wants to take a wack at it...I'm open.
Thanks again.

Mike B.

Beautiful melody and chords. Good spacious mix. The strings and fiddle sound very nice. Has some Vivaldi mood.

Great work on this one smile It sounds so delicate and airy. I found it to have a cinematic quality to it as well. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this in a movie or an anime perhaps. The fiddle took it to the next level for me. Extremely relaxing, and very ethereal.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
