Hi all.
Here is a recent BB Ballad using realtracks for the guitar part and the solo guitar in the middle sections,i used Sonik Synth and an old sampler called DS 404 for the strings part.
I play the melody line and BB does the solos.
Hope you like it.

Riccled,
Nice smooth piece. Very soothing and enjoyable. I liked your other tracks as well.
You might try fading the lead guitar in and out.

Thanks for the opinions guys,yes I will try to vary the solo sections in future to give a bit more variety.
I can heartily recommend IK Multi media as Sonik Synth vsti I reckon 75℅ of my BB tracks have got at least 1 line using it on them.
I will have more shortly.
Cya.

yes indeed...very elegant. the idea of fading the lead instruments in and out is worth a thought, in my (Al) opinion. Very serene and relaxing. Thanks for a real nice listen!

Very nice. The mix is well-balanced and the tune is easy to listen to. I liked the transition which happens at about 1:00 the best.

Hi Riccled,

As others have noted, "elegant" is exactly the right word for this one. It's a most enjoyable listen. The opening minute or so reminded me of the John Dunbar theme from "Dances With Wolves".

I found this a very enjoyable listen.

Regards,
Noel

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!
