Hi everyone. This is a funky soul song I did several months ago, and I've just finished. I started the song in BIAB and did the structure there (BIAB is soooo great for this kind of job). I liked so much a couple of tracks (electric piano and tenor sax) that I used them in the final mix, with a little bit editing here and there. Main drums were programmed, and sound through Addictive Drums. I programmed a couple of electronic and percussion loops too, and bass and guitars -and of course vocals- are real. Everything was mixed with Reaper, the mix is still work in progress, so any suggestion welcomed!

Here's the link, I Hope you like it.

This is a hot rod song and a good mix to my ears -- well done!!

P.S. I thought the sax sounded a little "under-powered" from 2:44 - 3:07, but after that it sounded great!
At 5:09, it might be about a minute too long.

No suggestions. It sounds pretty well near perfect to me. Stunning in fact.
I LOVED the slinky key changes - wow! The vocal is beautiful - I assume your wife is a professional singer? She'd give Lisa Stansfield a run for her money.
Excellent song, arrangement and mix. And those key changes...woooh....!

Ok, put a gun to my head and I'd ask for the drums to be louder, but that's just me.

I love R&B / Funk tunes and this is outstanding Cerio. Sounds like you hired studio musicians to create this. If it is all Biab, you sure know how to get what you want out of it. Impressive indeed !!

Yes yes yes to all the above. This is sheer class. Love everything about it. I love this kinda stuff. Just wish I could write it!

The vocal is amazing. Just sooo good.

I've been playing this to all my friends and they all love it too!


Looking forward to your next post with eager anticipation.

Good luck with it!

Really liked the spacing of the vox

The overall feel of this piece is very evocative

Vox are outstanding – soulful and sincere. Loved the rap section too!

Sometimes there are 2 reps of some sections when maybe 1 would have been enough which results in the whole thing being maybe a little long

Also , the drum sound maybe a little over aggressive

Overall, this is big league stuff Cerio. Well done to both of you!

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
