I hope you will indulge me while my BIAB projects remain somehow stuck in the kitchen on the stove cooking.

https://soundcloud.com/lawrence-olivier/black-elks-vision


This is another Korg X3 MIDI composition from the late nineties - early 'oughts.


After listing to "Departure" by seeker, I hope to learn how to utilize BIAB for these types of compositions in the near future.

A good listen, Lawrence.

Nicely put together. Good mix.

A lot happening along the way. Good textures.

I do miss your vocals, though.

Wow Lawrence,

Shades of Jean Michel Jarre there, beautiful, hypnotic, I enjoyed it from the first note till the last.

Hi Lawrence,

although I miss your vocals, too, I really enjoyed this one. Especially like the drums and bass. Great soundscape.

Indulge you??? no, I just can't frame any comment on your wonderful music as an indulgence!

At a time when I was still cursing the general state of computer based recording and accomplishing very little in any direction, you were already making rich and complex arrangements like this one!

Considering the tools you had to work with, and the fact that you had to do all this with little or no computer help, I have to compare your ability to conceive all the intertwined parts to the ability of the classical composers to imagine all the parts in their compositions.

As I listen to this and hear how the various passages segue from one to another, I am very impressed. It takes a special awareness to hear something like this in one's mind before it actually exists... and then conjure the dream into reality.

Interesting to hear something that is so different from the very organic music you tend to make these days... but one core thing has remained constant, and that is your amazing ability to take what's in your head and capture it as a song. That's nothing short of a gift!

#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.

Simply click on the [?] at the top of the program (near the Mixer on the right) to launch this feature. From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:

10:19 - New Feature - Feature Browser

Give the Gift of Music with Band-in-a-Box®!
