Guenter, that is stunning. The voices work incredibly well with this laid back jazz groove. Seven voices? Wow. It's just about impossible for me to imagine how you arrange these productions. This one is just so accessible for us because we've long liked smooth jazz and the voices just fit perfectly with this. And the mix is really good -- nice and airy feeling with every track sitting in the right place for my liking. Another fabulous production.

Guenter,

Ditto what Bud said! Stunning, indeed!!

I have to admit... you have given me an appreciation for opera - not necessarily a full-blown "I love it", but at least a healthy appreciation. I headed out to Google/YouTube to find the aria - I like hearing the original that your amazing creations are based on. In this case, I found Placido Domingo - and bounced back and forth between that and the girls doing their jazz rendition. Astounding. Both the girls and Placido...

Your transformation stands on its own - a beautiful piece. Excellent mix - would expect no less. Always impressed when someone gets the sax RTs to sound like they were meant for a piece - nice job on that.. Beautiful strings (I assumed you played those?) - subtle, elegant... in headphones, the acoustic bass was a tab heavy at the beginning - but then seemed to settle in later (as I became accustom to it). As I type this, I'm on a 7th or 8th listen...

A real pleasure.

floyd

Hey Guenter, us again. You might find this of interest. We've listened to her in several music contexts. But what she is doing here reminded us of you and the voices of your posted song.

Guenter,

After Floyd's posting with lady with musical hands.
Came here and listening now.

Can't not even imagine the amount of time and hard word
this took to create.

This is really a special piece of work.

Thanks!

Hi Guenter,

In my opinion, Nessun Dorma is one of the great operatic masterpieces.

What you have done with it is outstanding on so many levels. You've worked your unparalleled magic and have put together a stunning presentation; a creative masterpiece. If we were talking "Olympics" here, I'm pretty sure you'd be in gold-medal contention with this one.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Guenter
It has already been said that this is stunning. I was just thinking how I liked the strings when I read Floyds comment about the strings. My wooden ears must be improving and I think your wonderful creations are helping them.
Great work!

Guenter,

I have been so busy the past several months, it seems I only get to listen and comment about once every couple of weeks. I sure am glad I caught this one.

Your work always amazes me! Very creative. I wish I could clone just a part of your imagination and transplant it into my brain! smile

Thanks for sharing this one.

Steve

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?

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!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

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!
