Well, here is my 2nd effort on the trusty iPad! Both my Mac and PC are still on the blink. I'm enjoying the feel and portablilty of the iPad. Auria is a strong daw with some really good plugins.

This one is called Love Will Never Give Up On You. I have some friends who have gone through some devastating events in their life recently, and I was thinking of them when I wrote this one today.

I played the piano, and the strings and flute softsynths, and the rest is all RealTracks.

Love Will Never Give Up On You

Here are all the Realtracks used...

RealTracks in song: 2474:Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085

RealTracks in song: 2542:Pedal Steel, Background ModernBalladAtmosphere Ev16 065
RealTracks in song: 2028:Fiddle, Soloist CountryAndy Ev 065

Have a blessed day!

Hi Steve. Always love your smooth sound and beautiful voice and this is no exception. Good job.

Ps did I miss the memo about BIAB being available on an iPad? Mind you, don't have an iPad but do have an iPhone that I am joined to the hip with.

Beautiful write, Steve. The chorus is killer.

Your productions are always classy. This is yet another.

Beautiful vocal (as always).

Super nice! A great listen.

Nice in so many ways.

Insightful lyrics and that BGV chorus is right on time.

Yeah, really enjoyed that song.

Thanks so much, Josie! I always appreciate hearing from you. I have the iPad Pro 12.9, so it's easier to see with my "mature" eyes. smile

There are a few really good daw's for the iPad. I'm using Auria Pro, with an iRig Pro interface. Everything is very portable. And I have practically zero latency with Auria on the iPad.

Since my Focusrite interface quit working on my PC, I am still able to use the laptop's built-in sound for Mand In A Box, and then transfer the individual RealTracks generated over to the iPad for using in Auria. Very simple, but surprisingly powerful setup,

Steve,

Fantastic song, really enjoyed it. Astonishing that you finished it on an iPad.
I must check out that DAW.

The production is so clean and open and such excellent vocals (both solo and choir).
That is also such a beautiful rich piano sound (what piano/plugin is it?).

Cheers
Rec

Thank you! Always like hearing from you! No, you didn't miss a memo. smile I am still able to use the built in sound card on my laptop, so I do the BIAB generations on the pc, and then move them to the iPad, where I use the Auria DAW app. I have the iPad Pro 12.9, so the screen isn't so small, and I can hold it up to my nose if I need to, to see. smile

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
