Hello everybody,

Most of the times we write a song and start looking for a nice video, or pictures to go with it.
This time we've done it the other way around.
Looking for videos in the public domain, that could be of any use, we discovered a video made by Carlos Vieira, which was posted on Mazwai.com.
We liked it so much, that we've made a song to go with this video (which we have modified a bit).
We sent the link to Carlos Vieira, who let us know he liked it very much.

Very pretty song!! Instrumentation was perfect-love that dreamy electric. Vocals were up to your usual standard: clear, clean, and perfectly processed. Video was quite beautiful. Really nicely done!! Take care. Greg

The song and video really worked great together and another well written, production and performance. Amazing talent from both of you. Carlos Vieira should be elated.

Another fantastic tune. The style is perfect, the vocals superb.

The video clip and music are fantastically collaborative. The instrumental fits so well.

Thanks for another great tune.

Traces of Dire Straits and yeah... this is good. Haunting.

Good job on the recording and writing.

Yes, he certainly should be pleased.
Just about every time I think about
creating a vid you post one and I
think...naaaah don't think I will!

Writing the song to work with
the pre-existing video has got
be a different experience. Letting the
video drive the writing experience
is conceptually something I'd never
thought about. Suffice it to say
that it worked and worked
wonderfully well.

The word that comes to mind is
"ethereal." The whole audio
production just melds into the
video so well. Seems like they
were meant for each other.

We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie.

A beautiful song and as others have said already, perfectly matched to the video image.

From the vocals to the choice of Realtracks, the arrangement and the mix, it's all extremely professional.

I'm sure that this wasn't an easy project, but you've accomplished it with distinction.

ROG.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

This is such a great idea! I was thinking about this possibility just a couple of days ago. Poking around looking for available clips - first time for that, I saw a couple that I thought would be good if you had the right song... or if you wrote one to fit it. Inspirational! What a terrific way to find new song ideas... with a "built-in" video when you are done...

Beautiful song. Wonderful production. Lovely vocals.

Another winner! And one heck of a video!!

R & A-M, Writing a song to match a video is indeed a unique concept. If anyone could pull it off it would be you two. And you have! Very nice production all around. Tom

Thank you Greg!

Yes, the pop dreamy Brent realtrack never lets you down, it's so versatile. This is about the fifth song we are using it in laugh

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
