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.

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."
