Hello there!

I'm a new (Jan '14) owner of Band In A Box, and I've been lurking here for the last couple of months learning and seeking answers. I'd like to thank you all for being so helpful even though this is our first communication. The search function has been my good friend as of late. smile

"Fuzzy Cat" is my second ever Band In A Box creation. It uses a style called "J!TRAD.STY". BB substituted Real Drums in and I replaced the banjo track with a Real Track called "Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Freddie Sw 140". These are the only BB parts I used. The rest of the parts were played on my EWIUSB using a VST called WIVI Band.

Fuzzy Cat

Thanks for listening, and nice to meet you all.
Dan

Dan,

Welcome.

What a fun song, very enjoyable. I used to regularily go to a Jazz club in Putney, South London UK that had the greats playing music like this, Your playing would have fitted in perfectly with that band.
I am dancing like Baloo the bear to this.

2nd song eh cool
I look forward to more.

Alyn

Hi Dan,

You must be a very very experienced man at playing trad jazz. This is AWESOME+ !!!!! The melodies and the counter-melodies you weave throughout the mix show some gold-medal musicianship.

I don't remember hearing this standard of trad jazz on the forum before. All I can say is ...



Welcome aboard!
Noel

Hello everyone!

I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcomes. Thanks also for having a listen and leaving a comment. Your time and input is much appreciated. smile

I also forgot to mention in my original post that the mixing and MIDI recording was done in Reaper. I was very surprised and pleased when I found out I could drag tracks straight from Band In A Box into Reaper. An awesome capability, indeed.


Thanks for listening,
Dan

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

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

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

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!
