My first post and though I'm usually a vocalist and Guitar player I wanted to express my enthusiasm for the new String RT in BB 2014.

This is a randomly generated track with no form which used the new string quartet and a solo violin.

I took this over with a saved midi version and played with it in my DAW.

Hope you enjoy ..... I certainly had fun.

Here's the link.

Hey Mal,

That sounds great!

For clarity, were you using the MIDI Realcharts from the new PopStrings, and your own VST MIDI strings patches? And not using the RealTacks themselves?

And to get the Realcharts, did you use the new drag and drop feature in 2014, where you just dragged the strings track to the MIDI area of the Dropbox?

Thanks Peter.

I just saved as a standard midi after generating a melody and retained the string quartet and solo violin. Two tracks, string quartet and solo violin.

In my Daw I used Symphobia, doubled up the strings with Brass and used a solo violin. The tracks were not changed at all from BB.

I will be writing lyrics for these new RT's and can't wait to write some songs. It was a hurried little project but fun galore and I love these new RT's.

Mal, simply gorgeous. The cathedral ambiance made me imagine myself on the scene at a huge cathedral in Europe with only an organist at the keys. Sort of Phantom Of The Opera-esque.

Is that not the goal of good music; to transport the listeners to a more pleasant locale? This one had me checking my passport to confirm my whereabouts.

More please!?

Thank you Don ..... I truly think that BB is nearing the point where, given that little bit of imagination, some epic sounds can be generated.

Appreciate the comments.

Thanks for such lovely comments.

I've been listening to other peoples efforts and am impressed by the quality in a lot of cases. Some true Artists here.

It's difficult getting good sound. Editing on your own computer is an art in itself but when you upload I wonder if the file is compressed by the site and degraded somewhat.

I'll add those tracks I enjoyed .... Beats Facebook hands down and Kar sites Aghhhh!

Mal,

Beautiful sound and movement.

All the free music sharing sites compress the uploaded file to a 128 mp3 for playback.

Hi, Mal !


There is something divine Bachlike about
your progressions and it made me reflect
on the time when I sung all those great
chorals and Bach´s Christmas Oratory, not
to forget the real father of neverending
counterpoint Giovanni Pierluigi de Palestrina,
whom I adore and whose masses I´d love
to sing again as in those golden days !!!!!!:)))
Just simply great !!!

Cheers
Dani

Nice sound. I'm always being amazed at what this program can do. My only crit on this is that it's too long and repetitive. I notice that when I allow BB to generate a song, it can be excessively long. So I normally edit for length.

Remember the old show biz expression..... Always leave them wanting more.

PG Music News
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."
