I listened with cans...you might consider dropping the lead piano and guitar a little bit. There's interesting supporting music happening with the bass and percussion too, but it seemed overshadowed to me?

Hey, as always it's a superb composition.

Thanks for listening guys, Dani, yes you're right about the piano styles, it might remind you of any of the two masters, you always so kind. Olemon, like they say,"two heads think better than one", well I guess that applies also to four ears (plus your cans might be better that mine), so I follow your advise and lower the volume of the piano and the guitar so the background can happen a little better. Thanks for the suggestions, that's why this forum is so great.
Thanks again

Mike B.

Awesome jazz number, Mike! Your experience is shining through big time!

Did you play any part of the song, or is it all real tracks?

Again, thank you all for your comments. Pat, some time ago I would've said; yes, I'm playing the drums, but unfortunately, I don't do it anymore, I used to play drums and latin percussion back in the days, but now I'm just content on putting together this songs the best I can and having fun in the mean time.

Regards

Mike B.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

Video - Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - No Sound with MIDI?

Have you ever experienced a No Sound issue when you're working with MIDI in Band-in-a-Box® for Mac?

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser!

Simply click on the [?] at the top of the program (near the Mixer on the right) to launch this feature. From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window. If you're typing it in, you'll see that list change to only show the results that could fit your search - once you find what you're looking for, you can read more about it when you choose [Manual], if there's a video for the feature you can choose [Video] to view it, OR - if you don't need to read about the feature and just want to USE it, choose [Do it] and you're all set!

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:

Give the Gift of Music with Band-in-a-Box®!

Did you wait too long to purchase flowers, a card, or book a restaurant for Valentine's Day? Or, maybe material gifts just aren't your thing?

Why not whip together a song in Band-in-a-Box? It's as easy as typing in some chords, choosing a style, and pressing play!

Or, take it a step further with the help of the Audio Chord Wizard and our StylePicker Song Titles Browser feature!

-Head to the StylePicker window, search for a style for that song using the "Song Titles Browser" Feature (top right)
-Choose from the list provided
