I wrote this one this week after getting a "Butt Dial." Not from an ex-girfriend (wife wouldn't approve).

https://soundcloud.com/born26s/butt-dial

Used BnB (BOOGBRT style), I added some Acoustic. Mixed in Pro Tools

To answer the accidental call from the ex or not - out of the box thinking - funny. Nice choice of instruments too.

Ditto!

The harmonies came in a little hot on my earphones, but it could be my cheap cans.

Jim,

Clever idea! With the perfect instrumentation. The "group harmony" was great - but it needed just a touch of variation - it sounded like "a good take" repeated every time - get 2 good takes and alternate them throughout (just an opinion...).

I liked the way you used the lead guitar throughout the song...

Enjoyable. Keep 'em comin'.

Very cool lyrics, melody and arrangement. I could hear Ronnie Dunn doing it.

I do agree with the above harmony comments. A little hot for my mixing tastes (very subjective) and perhaps could be varied somewhat....but those are just my nits. Thanks for posting it!

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."
