Working on some songs, all Real Tracks, vocals are there just for perspective. I am working on interfacing vocals in Mixcraft 6, a lot of tweaking etc. to come, don't be to judgmental. Thanks

I listened to stret walker it has a lot of potential. My honest opinion is that the tempo is to high re record that with a lower tempo.. I say this because I too fell into that same type of thing and a good friend told me to slow it down some and I have gotten better results because of it

I didn't have time to listen to the others but I will

start at 80 and go up by 5 till you get just the right tempo

You'll probably end up at 110 or 120 but you never know... I have had some songs end up as low as 70 give it a try you can always fall back to what you have already recorded if it doesn't sound right

Thanks for the good reviews, I am still working on redoing the vocals with a Rode mic, these songs were done with a Shure beta 58A. The Rode mic is very sensitive even to movement of my feet on the floor, any comments on how to reduce the sensitivity?

good stuff.

Steet walker: man that melody is dead on to another song that was popular.... I can't recall the name... the story is similar to Deep Purple's Strange Kind of Woman.

Pretty Girl: I like this one.... of course I'm more of a country musician anyway. Nice solo guitar real track. It's believable.

Never let you go: Again, country... one thing I noticed... on this one. Shorten the intro. No intro should exceed 15 seconds max and this one goes past 30 seconds. The Eagles can get away with long intro's (mostly live in concert) but they have the star power to do it.

that's as far as I went.... 3 songs that have good potential.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
