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

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
