Hi all, I'm Jools from Kent UK.
I recently bought BIAB/Realband to help make some jazz backing tracks with for my sax.
So the learning curve begins!.
This is a folky/country fiddle instrumental I've been playing around with. It's based on the BANJBAL demo with some 624 fiddle soloist added, then opened in Realband so I could start to see how things work.

Or, youtube link if you fancy looking at some gorgeous Celtic landscape shots of Britain and Ireland while you listen (or just turn the sound down !).

Cheers

Jools

Jools,

Welcome! That's a heck of a start! Very nice mix on that.

A bit lengthy for a single instrument instrumental... Ending around the 3-minute mark might be a good length...

Nice job. Keep it up...

Thanks Floyd.

You're right, it does go on a bit grin .

It was really an exersize in finding my way around Realband, but I might do a shorter version.

Hi Jools
Loved your song. Excellent playing. I also enjoy listening to another "Jools" in the UK. I get Jools Holland "Later" on satellite tv. Lot of great talent over there....

Jools,

Learning curve? I know what you mean, but I'm thinking you've already gone around the bend:) Very polished for your first BB post.

Lovely production. Welcome.

Jools,

Welcome to the forum and to the wonderful world of PG Music!

Wonderful first effort. Nice production and mixing. A little lengthy but I completely understand why; once the groove strikes it makes you want to fully explore the possibilities.

I found the comment you used both BIAB & RealBand to produce the song interesting. Many forum members use standalone daws for part of their production and use RealBand for specific features. Nice to know you "test drove" both programs.

Hi Jim & Pat, thanks for the welcome.

Pat - they are excellent. I had BIAB back in 2001, and found it a useful tool for learning songs & practicing scales/modes etc., but wasn't too keen with the sounds out of my sound module.
Realband is in a completely different class!. I didn't expect it to be this good.

Jools
