Very cool interpretation--I really liked the brush work.

Very nice, the piano just sounds so "live" - nice parts, nice mix. It gave me a flashback to a flashback scene in a Woody Allen movie - maybe the one where he lived as a child under a roller coaster in Coney Island. I forget the title and for once I will accept that rather than outsource my brain to Google.

Thanks for sharing,
Bruce

Tano,

Glad the brushes were OK, concerned they were too heavy.
FWIW, the style itself setups up the 3 brushes.
Almost changed it, for thought was too heavy.

Thanks.

Bruce,

Thank you for nice compliments. It just blows me away, the quality
sounds we can get from the RT's. "Annie Hall" 1977 was one.
Left MY piece of brain with Google.

Glad you enjoyed!

Sounds great, but would change it to put the trumpet front and center, rather than panned left.

John,

Point well taken, Had accidentally left default setting as it was.
Am checking that now prior to BIAB rendering.
Would accent it better.

Thanks for compliment and comment, learning never stops until last breath.
With bit of luck, maybe even past that.

Nice use of BIAB. I wish it had some of those megaphone vocals that this style music had sometimes.

Good one.

This is the kind of swing music that makes my 90 year-old father sit up, pay attention, and tap his foot. Also, its brevity leaves me wanting more.

By the way, what is "magic F5"?

jptjpt, thanks and also my vocals would probably shatter the megaphone.

bluage.

Start up your BIAB, then select any bar, Press F5.
There is a myriad of changes you can make at the bar level.

too many to detail, but it is a "Magic" key.

My father would have been 92 this year, but RIP 1992.
Glad your Dad liked it. My dad was a honky-tonk, bluegrass, dixieland
type harmonica and keyboard player.

Thanks for your Dad's compliments.

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

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!
