Following is my link to my latest song, I Never Found That Rainbow. I always appreciate the feedback from this Forum.
Ballad: JBALPFER.STY
732: Bass of Neil Swainson (what a player)
742: Piano Miles Black (Can add no words that would add to his stature as a player)
937: Guitar Oliver Gannon- straight ahead and steady
1248: Piano solo Mike LeDonne (This was a new feature for me, sweet.)
Terry Clarke Drums (brushes)
All together makes a fine recording. Please take a listen.

Also, while at Soundcloud please take a listen to Fool of Fools, same RealBand personnel. PG Music wouldn't let me post as not an original. I did purchase the appropriate streaming rights. Once again, thanks again for allowing us to create all we can be.

Hi Carolyne
Remember -you gotta have rain to get a rainbow.
Very smooth track. Liked it a lot.
We're on holiday and Wi-Fi a bit sketchy so it's great to be actually able to play.
Cheers
Ian
PS I like Fool of Fools too!

Hi Carolyne, wow what a great vox! We've got some great jazzers aboard so you'll fit right in. I am not one of them but I can recognize talent when I hear it. You have a Billie Holiday vibe going on here and I really enjoyed it. Keep em coming and a sincere welcome to perhaps the greatest bunch of musicians on this planet.

Hi Caroline,

awsome voice!
And I like the arrangement and mix.
Only thing that disturbs me a little is that the high notes of the piano solo are on the left. As a piano player I expect them to be on the right.

Thank you for that, Guenter. Not sure I can switch solo side now, but I'll never forget the lesson for future use.

Thanks Janice & Bud, I listened to your tunes and well. "Don't Give It Away, reminds me of an old blues song performed by Ruth Brown about a chair. Lyric was pretty risqué for the time, today is nothing. Enjoyed.

Carolyne,

Beautiful vocal. And nice backing. A very good mix. Like Guenter, I expect the piano to sound as though you are sitting at it yourself - although I've never heard a discussion on the topic... The opening piano "solo" seems a little "out of place" for the song that follows - it is fast and a bit "showy" while the song is relaxed and "lazy" (feel-wise, not the players or vocals, of course) - so that opening solo should have that same type of easy, relaxed feel to take you into that beautiful vocal...

I heard your song in the PG music radio. Nice tune, thanks for sharing. Yes, the piano solo sounds good. I usually find the auto-generated solos in BIAB rather unusable but this one works.

Loved it all, Carolyne..at first I thought I was listening to Dianne Schur! You did a great job conducting your combo, and the composition is first-class. Great work!

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."
