Hi Frank,

I really liked this! As soon as I started listening to it, it was like I was transported back in time to the 1920s/30s. Very authentic sounding to my ears. I'm not sure that I'd have tried the sax hard left but it worked in this piece.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

Its amazing to me the sounds the PG has allowed us to use
with the Realtracks.
As for the panning will check a bit later. Using internals as
melody/solo, I sometimes force bit of panning, but don't want the
performer to fall off the left side of the stage. May have left
default pan for the Sax in place. Will be more aware on next arrangement.

In the heat of the battle I left the default panning in place. -30 is bit much.
Would have set this to -10 or -15, depending on the sound. Will pay closer
attention next go round.


I usually put a song aside for awhile, then go back and listen.
You get too close to a piece when working on it.

I also like the Vintage or older Jazz styles better.

Thanks for your compliments!

Very nice. It would have been even cooler with some 20s sytle megaphone vocals. Nice use of BIAB.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Floyd, Mario,

Thanks for the compliments.

jptjptjpt,

Ya... I agree, but my voice is only passable, and need few weeks of
practice,practice practice before adding vocals. One of our members did a song few weeks
ago with "vocals of that age".
Thanks for comments.

David,

There was a day when bourbon would have been a part of my day, but
after many years ago, it walked away from me...

Thank you for nice comment.

Nice, easy, comfortable...BUT...it deserves a vocal! It's too nice a groove not to have some kind of lyric to it...however, very enjoyable.

Frank,

This is very nice and smooth! Like Noel said, it takes me back to the 20's/30's (not that I've ever actually been there! ).

I really enjoyed this!

Steve

Tano,

Would be great icing, except if mine....??????
Thanks for compliments.

Steve,

The vintage and old styles contribute nicely to the smooth aspects, but the
real stars are the RealTracks. The BIAB and RB software with RT'S are such a joy.

Thanks for nice comments.

Mootsman and John,

Thanks to both of you.

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
