Goodday all.
Here is a nice languid ballad written on BBox using Realdrums and Sonik Synth.
I used the holds/pushes thingy with 1 or 2 parts still playing for the 1st time on this track and I think it works ok.

Hope it goes down well.

Nice production. I liked the guitar sounding part.

Those holds and rests and shots are critical, but they can be a little tough to get right in BIAB. There are some posts about using them in the other forums that helped me, once I finally discovered those functions. You're already there:)

Hi everyone.
Thanks for the comments,always appreciative of constructive opinions.
I reckon although I have been using BB since 2008 I bet I've only used about 30% of the styles! Its amazing how many there are.
Bye for now.

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!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
