Hi,
this is a song that I have written for my wife,
I Used Band In A Box and then transferred the audio files into Logic Pro X
to mix the song..

the Band In A Box style is Jazz Funk Breezy Rhythem {75 rs}
which was great for this song, I also added some extra BIAB tracks
acoustic gtr and synth.
you can hear the track at

https://soundcloud.com/geir-borholm/i-live-to-love-you-by-geir-apra-2016

I truly hope you like it,
I've been using BIAB since 1993, and just about every song I've ever recorded
has been with BIAB. to check out other tracks please visit www.geirborholm.com

Kind Regards
Geir

Oh man, I TOTALLY dig this. I love this style. What a great song. You did a really spectacular job with this, and really recalled some good old days of classic songwriting.

This song is just too much heaven!! Just making a BGs pun! Really nicely performed and put together! Mix sounds great. I'm a big BG fan from the old days. Really enjoyed this! Take care. Greg

Geir,

What a sweet song for your wife and a pro sound in every regard. You bullseyed that vibe and the I mean it from the heart y'all was a cool add for a bit of modern spice.

Wow, using BIAB since 1993! I'd say you've got a pretty good handle on it. (understatement) grin

Well done.

Hi there Sundance,

Thank you so much for your kind words, I truly do Appreciate them,

Yes BIAB has been the best writing tool for me,
very easy to get around, especially when your a song writer,
I write in so many different styles so I needed a program that would
accommodate everything I do,

Thanks again,
and Kind Regards
Geir..

Hey Janice & Bud,

Thank you for your warm welcome and sincere words,
I have been a song/writer for many years,
It's great fun and I thoroughly enjoy it,

I have my own studio in which I record many different artists
and and also help with arrangements when needed,
I love preforming Live, but the studio is where I get a chance to
get creative, and of cause using BIAB is an amazing tool,
along with other gear that I have,

Thanks Again,
Kind Regards
Geir...

It seems a very Bee Gees song both in melody and in the way you sing.

Great the refrain.

I don't like the rap part.

Geir,
Wow! Why have you waited so long to join the Forum? We've been missing out!
I love this song. I haven't scrapped up the courage to break out my falsetto but you embolden me to do so.
Please post more!

Hi there SpaceDog,

Thank you for your encouragement, To be honest I didn't realize there was a
forum,
I've been extremely busy working with other artists, Recording, Producing and so on,
so to get time to sit down and do something for my self gets put back, plus I have
a large family to keep happy,
I've also spent a lot of time touring, but I've slowed down on the touring side now,
so hopefully I'll have more time to do other things,

I hope I can upload some more stuff soon,

Have a great day,
Kind Regards
Geir,

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
