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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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."
