Dear Forum Friends,
Has anyone ever called you “so serious”? I used to hear it all the time. It was like fingernails on the chalkboard to me. I guess I’m still pretty serious but I do let loose for just a little while as the song suggests.
This past winter I upgraded to the BIAB UltraPack and got some great Dixieland RealTracks. How can you not smile listening to that kind of music? So enjoy and find your inner-child.
Here are the wonderful RT (thanks PG).

Hi!

It's been a while since we heard this genre. What a nice refresher! We're still smiling! Your vocal is terrific on this. Also loved the message in the lyric. I'm (Alan) serious enough to take carer of my responsibilities. After that ... I just try to have fun.

A fun and and entertaining listen. Thanks!

Alan & Di

PS: loved the background laughing near the end!

Fun listen! We'v had a blast playing around with those RT's.

You put them to good use supporting the vocal. Wrapped it
up in a nice mix also.

Hi SD,

a fun listen. Like all those little trifles you worked into your mix. I'm sure it was also fun making it.

Charlie,
Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Al & Di,
Thanks. This is my second song in the Dixieland genre. It's so much fun.

J&B,
Thanks. The RTs are so much better than the equivalent midi patches.

Guenter,
Thanks. The sound effects were really fun.

Greg,
Glad you liked it.

Robert,
Thanks. It was really fun doing this one.

Alyn,
Glad you liked it. Thanks for listening.


Josie,
Thanks for your comments. I took the Berklee Music Production course a while back and learned a lot. I guess it's helping.
Take care.

Hi SD,

Very nice angle for a song, very enjoyable by the way.
About the 'serious' part.... we both have been called "too serious" back in our days, but we've loosened up for many years now!
Song is very well done.

Regards,
R & AM

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."
