Hi all,

this song was inspired by some brass samples by www.NewYorkBrass.com which can be used for free.
I used the samples nyb_40.mp3, nyb_41.mp3, nyb_42.mp3 and nyb_46.mp3.

RealTracks are:
RealDrums-BossaBrushes
RT464_ Bass, Acoustic, Bossa Ev
RT708_ Guitar, Nylon-Elec, Rhythm Bossa Ev
RT510_Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev
RT475_ Sax, Alto, Bossa Ev
RT1167 Gitarre, Elektro, Solist RockBallade Brent Ev Halftime
The lead guitar was tailored from 5 different generations.

I hope you enjoy.

It is so nice to hear the different flavors of music on the site. The brass was very cool. But the guitar with distortion was a very neat touch

Hi Guenter,

As always, your music inspires me and amazes me in equal quantities. This is outstanding.

Your ability to home in on the essence of a theme and then to develop that theme through the surgical manipulation of audio is incredible. To my way of thinking, you're the definition of 'master-craftsman meets master-musician meets outstanding audio engineer'.

All the best,
Noel

Quite fantastic

I really enjoyed some of the discordant blends of brass especially in the intro. As usual, a very high standard.

Thanks for sharing

Guenter,

Excellent. Beautifully put together. I downloaded all the samples when they were mentioned some time ago - and I've listened to them all a few times - thinking it would be cool to be able to do something with them... I would not know where to begin - obviously NOT a problem for you! You are a very clever man and a talented musician!

Did you use the samples in their original tempo? And if not... how did you figure out the tempo - and how did you stretch them (if you did)?

Even getting them in proper alignment has to be some real work..

(don't you love when you hear the musician talking in the background of those samples?)

BRAVO. A wonderful piece. As always.

floyd

Guenter,

Another fine display of your creative arranging abilities. I really like the way you mix and match sounds and styles. Keep up the good work!

Hi Floyd,

First thanks a lot for your nice comments.

Yes, on most of them I used the original tempo. I get the tempo with the metronome. One sample needed adjustment. My daw is reaper, and there it is easy to change the play rate by typing in e.g. 1.2 for faster or 0.98 for slower.
No magic, just fun experimenting.

This is a very impressive piece. Very musical and sophisticated sound. I really love the way you've intertwined the soloists.

Guenter,

See my comment at your SoundCloud page. Amazing horn sounds and arrangement. Very cool my friend. I don't think I've heard anything like this from you before. Impressive.

Most excellent!! You set a very high bar with sophistication, creativity and production. Even though your productions are always different there is a consistency of pro studio mixing that runs through all of them. This one has "movie them" all over it to my ears and although it appears to be a bit of a departure from many of your themes it works very well. We both really enjoyed it. Sweet!

Guenter,

Wow. Love it.

Have you ever thought of trying writing for tv/film? I think with your ability and creativity - you're a natural fit. Oh and thanks for the link too.

Hi Josie,

thanks for your kind comments.
Until 2002 I sold music for image films.
Long time ago.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
