Well done.


Hi Josie! I always appreciate hearing from you. (I would have loved to have heard your funk praise band!) Glad you like this one.

Thanks, Sonny! Glad you like it. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment!

This song is outstanding... but then your arrangements are ALWAYS one of this forum's highlights! You have one of the most finely tuned senses of music I've ever come across. From start to finish, this is first class, top notch, and a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. If I can get some more words together, would you be interested in having a play around with them?


Noel, it is always good to hear from you, my friend! Your comments are always welcome. Thanks for the very kind words!

Send some words! (We'll just have to keep working on that Texas accent!)

Wow!

This a really STRONG production....

- the vocals

- the arrangement

- the mix

Everything sounds amazing on our monitors.

And the eclectic choice of RT's is amazing. Reggae rhythm guitar?
Who would've thunk? And it works so well as does everything else.

Come back more often!!

Thanks, Bob! I hadn't thought of the Boz Scaggs comparison, until now. Glad you like it!

Thank you, Icelander! Glad you enjoyed it.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
