Last Call

I tried to emulate a live 5 man jazz combo playing the last song of the night. I am playing the lead guitar and wind controller while the rest is the drums, bass and E-Piano from BiaB’s Smooth Jazz Ballad (65 RS) style.

What do ya think?

All that's missing is the smoke filled room and lady in red. Excellent work, thanks for sharing!

wow... the wind controller really adds so much to the sax patch that wouldn't be achievable triggering the patch any other way.

I live so deep in the provinces that I don't even know what the heck a "wind controller" or patches are! I'm just an old BG/Blues bass picker. BUT, I know good music and this one hits the note. Although a different genre it brought back memories to me of playing through last call at clubs many, many years ago.

Just uber cool through and through. Thanks.

Thanx all for listening and the very kind comments.

Yes the wind controller can add a lot to horn sounds BUT you really need good sounds to start with. I just bought SampleModeling’s The Saxes. Although there were quite expensive they were worth every penny I paid for them. They are very realistic IMHO.

Danny, practicing is something that I should do a lot more of!

+10 to all the comments above. Yes, I've been following the development of the "The Saxes" from the sax Brothers if I'm not mistaken and they sound amazingly realistic, then again you need someone playing a wind controller or someone playing really good a midi keyboard controller to capture the sax nuances, and you're right, a bit expensive but well worth it.

Later

Thanx Mike, Floyd, gruverider and Sundance!

Mike and Floyd – I am trying to learn how to express myself on the wind controller, however I don’t practice enough to be really good at it. However I am having fun with it when I play it! Purchasing the SampleModeling saxs adds a lot of realism IMHO.

Sundance – me show off? You must be kidding me laugh
My versatility comes from playing in wedding bands for years as well as listening to all music genres. I have a very large eclectic vinyl and CD collection!

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."
