Hi there! smile

I recently finished my instrumental collage about unrequited love : Espoir déchu (Unrequited Love). You know when you're single, the story goes: meet someone new (new prospect), get to know them, really really like them and dare hope it might work but after a while you realize it's not gonna happen. So that disappointment was the inspiration.

It's basically an instrumental hip-hop piece so it needs to be played on speakers/headphones that can reproduce bass otherwise it's really lacking. You've been warned. wink

Thanks for listening. smile

I don't consider myself a Hip-hop fan but I like this!! Very cool melody and great instrument selection. EP sounds killer. Very nice tune! Take care. Greg

Very nice tune and I could feel the sadness and disappointment coming through. Maybe the next time that we get to hear a song from you things will be different and it will be a song of joy and happiness.

You did a nice job of conveying the sadness the subject if the sing was feeling. Nicely dine!

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

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!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
