Hi Dean,

I remember this song from playing it on stage.
You did a great job on the arrangement. Cool bass and
guitar. And you got a good singer here.
Not to forget Lance.

My word, this is Mighty!
Great singing for sure but a superb combination of 3 midi Styles and RTs - what a lot of work and what a great result.
Really enjoyed this, guys. Full Marks.
cheers

Very cool arrangement. Love the way the bass carries the song. Wonderful example of what can be done with BIAB RT's, midi, and your playing -- not to forget the fine vocals. Fun listen.

Thank you Floyd,

Yeh, Martin really powers the thing along. Although the backup group ain't bad either.

Very glad you liked it.

Lance ...uh, I mean, Dean

Noel,

That's an incredibly kind reply. Let me tell you, working with two symphony orchestras plus a chamber ensemble, a special track just for contrabass and tympani, a rock band, three percussionists, ... it goes on ... well, it wasn't what you'd call a walk in the park. I deserve a pat on the back just for the effort!

Hi Dean,

Pretty much all been said. Very nice arrangement. Great vocals, and your instrumentation is stellar as always. (By the way, I'm pretty sure there is medication available to treat your multiple personalities.) smile

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
