They worked in the same office building. They pass in the halls. Sometimes they rode the elevator together. Sometimes when talking to each other they would stutter and or miss a step or two. The same thing would happen when working but thinking about each other. Two extremely shy individuals that were in love with each other but neither would make the first move.

JonD and I tried to capture this scenario.

https://soundcloud.com/mario_guitar/silent-love

BiaB style = Rendevous - Arpeggiated Ballad
Deleted all tracks

JonD and I were working with this style when JonD started to play the arpeggios. We decided to go with his version. I then slowly replaced each BiaB track with one of mine. I also used this as an orchestral string exercise as I am trying to improve my string work.

JonD is playing the piano part via his keyboard controller.

I am playing the oboe and female vocal via my wind controller and all of the string parts via my keyboard controller.

Let us know what you think.
---------------------------------------------------------------
On a side note I apologize for not being able to listen to your wonderful music the past couple of months. Life got into the way as I was doing a lot of yard and house work. That coupled with going to a couple of friends' wakes was taking up a lot of time. I hope to become more active in the near future.

Whow, this would fit right into a sad movie...
Love that oboe. All in all very atmospheric!

Mario,

Once again you and Jon managed to create a nicely atmospheric composition. I love the double reed sound of your wind controller. To my ears it sounded more English horn than oboe. It was really beautiful playing against the strings.

All the best,
Noel

Mario and Jon, I think you captured the vibe perfectly. This would work well in a movie with the same theme as your introduction. I enjoyed the spread in the mix. Nicely done. Tom

Gorgeous musical score type thing!! Absolutely beautiful. I imagine a scene of displaced people (maybe during a war), walking in a mass, to somewhere uncertain. Nobody speaking to each other. It really captures my imagination. My fave of your score types for sure! Take care. Greg

I agree with Greg, this has such an epic movie feel. I don't know how you guys manage to out do yourselves but you always do.

Beautifully melancholy. Your description that sets the atmosphere was obviously well thought out. You guys are a wonderful team as illustrated by this production. Hopefully you are putting some of your products at some of the sites that cater to tv and film.

Most enjoyable.

Outstanding.

What a brilliant effort from both of you

Marvelous expression throughout. The strings and oboe are really strong points, with great realism.

Great work.

WOW how on earth do you manage to get that huge orchestral sound
This was beautiful , what a little video depicting the couple so wanting to talk to each other but always passing like ships in the night, with this music in the background could do ?? I started with a WOW and I will end with it.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing
RealTracks Set 17: Bossa
RealTracks Set 19: Jazz Ballad

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
