Hi...I'm a new Band in the Box user and I'm fascinated by it's potential so I'm posting my oldest song...it was written in 1978...and my newest track...i's a gospel country ballad

I used:
CMPFMF2 Campfire, medium fingerpicking and strumming style
added 2028 fiddle soloist and 1856 cello soloist
I then added from my Yamaha Tyros 5; electric bass, pop piano, and a real drum kit
I recorded the vocals and mixed it all in Cubase AI Elements
Then mastered it into Wavelab Elements8

I love the acoustic guitars in BiaB

Welcome to the forum. You've given us a really nice first post. Great write and arrangement. Very clear mix with no instruments getting in the way of each other. Good choice of BIAB tracks. I'm looking forward to hearing more of your posts.

Very nice Dan!! Welcome to the forum. I thought your vocal sounded a little unsure on the first few lines, but once you relaxed into it, you nailed it! The whole production is very tastefully and professionally done. Great to have you around. Looking forward to more! Take care. Greg

Hello,

Nice tune, very relaxing and well sung.

I heard some Elvis's influence in your way of singing

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
