I like how easy it is to generate musical ideas into audio tracks with BIAB very quickly. Shot some video with a cat named Cricket teasing my dog Rico. I thought the Gypsy Jazz RT complimented the moment captured in video. Hope you like the one minute music video.


Cricket in the Yard - Gypsy Jazz RT Insturmental

I thought it was the sport!
Nice upbeat Djano fandango going on - finished too soon.

Very cool!

Yes, in addition to using it for song writing, BIAB is also perfect for creating royalty free background music for videos! The gypsy guitar was a good choice for your cat. I have to imagine that if cats had opposable thumbs, they'd naturally play gypsy music on cat-sized guitars...

Janice and Bud,

Good to know it works. Friends who plays Gypsy Jazz inspired me to match this up with the video. I think I'm a new fan of it. Thanks for your input,

Cute video nice backing track.

If you do many of this type of video, check out the Generate Soundtrack feature of BIAB. The option is located in the MELODY button menu across the top of the screen. It is very useful for this type of video.

Charlie,

Glad you liked. I'll look for the Generate Soundtrack feature of BIAB. This Video was a fun exercise, but I do expect more projects for commercials and short infomercials and this feature may save me some time. Thanks for the tip and feedback.

Trygve Larsen,

Glad you found my pets cute and hope the music had something to do with it. I haven't been around this forum that long, but I noticed that most do post longer songs here. I have a few songs in mind that could be a better fit for the norm here and look forward to posting them soon. I hope my shorter projects will be OK here too. I have found through experience that I have more favorable response with videos lasting around 30 seconds for the regular groups I post too. Always looking for feedback and extra sets of ears to let me know how the tracks sound on someone else's speakers. Thanks for your guidance and feedback.

Glad the video had you smile. Our cat rules the house and the yard and gets along with the dog really well. Thanks
