I have a new music project for 2016. I will release one original song per week and blog about each song at 52tracksblog.com. Most of the recordings will feature BIAB tracks.

On River Out of Eden, I used an arrangement and recording from 2006 that includes BIAB MIDI tracks: bass, drums, electric piano, and a string pad. David Spires added the lush pedal steel guitar. I played 12-string guitars.

Track One: River Out of Eden http://52tracksblog.com/2016/01/07/track-1-river-out-of-eden/

Happy New Year!

That's quite a challenge for your blog but you are off to a great start. The steel guitar work is sweet.

Nice song and a quality recording.

I like this.

When I first saw the OP I was thinking... wow 52 tracks in a song...

now I understand. 52 songs in a year..... noble goal and worthy of attaining.

The mix is pristine. Will done.

Very nice Fred!! My favorite of yours. The simple beat and chord progression is very meditative, and the pedal steel is super, super sweeeeeeet. Nice poetic lyrics, and excellent vocals and mix. Awesome job on this!! Take care. Greg

P.S. I think I could only last one week in the song a week challenge. Very ambitious!

Fred,

This is a top-notch production all the way!
That pedal steel guitar is so very cool!

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!

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

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!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

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!

Thanks Tangmo!
