Here is a song I wrote commemorating my son. Hope you enjoy it.
Jeremy.mp3 from The Soundsmith site.
The piano is me, everything else is BiaB. I especially like the transition at the end of the solo chorus when the rhythm just backs off exactly as a real band would do. The RealDrums are the primary reason I own BiaB, this is a perfect example of why.

Key=Gm , Tempo 92, Length (m:s)=5:02
Arrangement: Intro, head in, 1 chorus solo, head out.
Style is _CBOSBOL.STY (Bossa & Bolero Mix Quartet )

RealTracks in style: 1904:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Bolero Ev 090

What a sensational arrangement. This is a really classy piece.

You captured a wonderful melody and delivered it as a masterpiece.

Very, very enjoyable.

Which Piano did you use? It resonates beautifully.

David, what a fantastic piece of music!! I could listen to this all day! It puts one in a very serene and contemplative state of mind. I know a Jazz tune is working for me when my head is nodding back and forth and it certainly was here. Great work all the way around. Thanks, Torrey

proof again that virtuoso playing is not about how many notes you hit but hitting the right ones at the right time.
I can only echo the comments above and found the piece captivating.

Like Greg alluded to...this has film score written all over it.

It's beautifully played and arranged.

Well done!

Hello, David

What a fantastic tune!
As if I were listening to Jazz Bossa CD album played by Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans or some one with Ron Carter and arranged Claus Ogerman.
Piano tone is so pleasant and beautiful.
I was very impressed the use of the short and nice motif and some tension notes.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Thanks again, guys. BiaB makes all the difference as a solo artist. I can play bass parts, but a believable drummer has never been my forte (or my piano...)

Waiting anxiously for the 2017 tracks. (Don't really care about progam update, it does way more that I will ever use - but more Real tracks please... whistle

Couldn't have put it better myself -- your piano playing is extremely tasteful, David! I can only imagine what you're going to get up to with new RealTracks.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
