I am loving BIAB 2013. Got a bunch of new styles and Real Tracks to dive into. Love the variety as well. Hope you enjoy some of the ideas I have come up with. Having a very short attention span, each song is different from the last.

The titles are:
Muddy the Waters,
That Shoe's Got Soul,
Where to... Jorge?

Cheers!

Hi Ricke,

you do a nice job on the guitar.
The songs are really very different from
each other.
I suggest not to use the horn session too often.
Their recognition value is too high.

Thank you, Guenter!
I agree with you on the brass. There are not too many MIDI style brass instruments that can really capture guys like Matt Finley! smile Matt, you are still guarenteed a job! But, we make do with what we have got. I found them to be a little too busy where it was challenging to write a melody without stepping over their parts. It was an experiment to see how it would fly.

Thanks for replying!

Ricke,

That's quite a varied mix of styles! All nicely done. Really good mixes.
I particularly like "Muddy the Water" (great name). Is the guitar lead you or an RT? Whichever.. it's sweet....

Hi Ricke,

I'm sitting here at the moment listening to "Muddy The Waters". The first thought that splashed into my mind was "Wow! This sounds so good!" That thought was rapidly followed by "The sound of the guitar is excellent. I wonder how he's done that." That's when I stopped thinking and just sat back and listened.

"Muddy The Waters" is incredibly well mixed and very very tastefully arranged, performed and assembled.

It's two vigorous thumbs up from me smile

I'm just heading off to listen to the others now.

All the best,
Noel

Hey Ricke,

Just checked out Muddy, Shoe, and Jorge. When Muddy got started I actually shouted out YEAH! Sounds like you took Lucille out of the closet and made her shout like BB. Same with Shoe.

I'm a tremendous fan of Latin Jazz a la Jorge - I could go on to the point of apoplexy about the abandonment of the category by the Grammy Awards (luckily, they restored it a year ago after a two year absence).

You gotta learn how to do proper endings, man. Fade-outs, held chords, etc. There's a beautiful and simple trick to it. Anyone similarly interested, just ask.

Aleck

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
