Hi Wayne. Wow! This is really engaging in every way. I love the lyrics. You've come up with some great lines and rhymes that flow really well. The arrangement and production are excellent. It's a great groove, a real toe-tapper! Kudos to Ken, too. His guitar work is a perfect fit. I enjoyed everything about this. --Noel

Hi David. This is great stuff. Your lyrics are jam-packed with imagery and the production is jam-packed with musicianship. As I listened, it was like a video was playing inside my head. Kudos on the chorus, too. It's fantastic. I love the rhyme structure. It's two enthusiastic thumbs up from me! --Noel

They are a stroll, as is the melody --the whole thing invites an evening stroll.
Thank you Marty. We had hoped that you would enjoy this one. The positive nature of it reminded us someone! 😀 All you wrote is much appreciated! J&B

Wayne, this sounds like a nice slump breakout to me! Fun song, and it sounds great. Ken provides great support. He RIPS that solo off, and it's placed well in the arrangement. Nice one!

However, it's a good song with a good selection of solo instruments, well arranged and nicely mixed, and enjoyable to listen to.
Thanks for listening and responding. I think when it comes to the length of a track it really depends on when you're listening ~ the zone you're in, the place, time and vibe. I mostly listen to this at the end of a long playlist and I'm totally in the zone for it. I've commented before that I'v heard albums and singles I've just not felt anything for, then on another day I find I'm in the zone and what previously bored me I next think is excellent.

I'm running out of things to say! But this is a great track with ace instrumentation, plus that guitar work is superb. Good video, too.

Engaging song from the start on all levels. Though "the fittest" are the species which can best adapt to their changing environments. So humans come in bottom of the class. 

Yet another really excellent song Marty! The main verses, chorus and arrangement all flow perfectly together. I really liked the video, too, as each image went so well with the individually lyrics.

Hey hey DCRon, thanks again for all the love. While I have always played lead or shared leads etc...in this case, the BIAB soloist, RealTracks in song: 3443:Guitar, Electric, Soloist BritPsycFunky Ev16 100, was so good, I just let him/her play. I just played some rhythm; it went well into the set so far. E Minor is not my key for singing, obviously, but I am practicing some scales. Thanks again. Donny G

Can barely hear recorded audio debitspread 16 hours ago Forum: RealBand Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I just installed RB 2021, after having used BiaB for many years. In BiaB, I created a tune, then tried a test recording of me playing clarinet. Everything sounded fine. Then I opened the BiaB file in RB (with no Audio track) and tried to record again. I heard the clarinet track, but just barely because the volume was so low. After trying a few times, I noticed that level bars on the RB track looked fine... until I accepted the track. That's when I saw that the saving of the track squashed everything down to a thin green line. Is this the result of my driver settings? Any guidance that you have would be much appreciated. Steve

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
