One by my favourite composer J.S. Bach:
Cantata "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" BWV 147
(matching the Easter season).
As a base I used Clasfake\Bach01 in BiaB.
The voices are Vocaloid Avanna and samples of my own voice.
The 3/4 measure and the many, many chord changes make it difficult
for the RT artists.
So at times I used up to 40 tracks, moving snippets around.
I ended up with 22 tracks in the final mix.

RealTracks:
RealDrums-JazzBrushesWaltz
RealDrums-2416Fusion

Guenter,

Cool. As always. I think Johann would have loved the screamin' sax. And would have loved having Brent around to "let it rip" now and again....

Great mix of "old and new".... always look forward to what you might do next...

But, hey... stay away from the Country stuff... there's enough competition there as it is.....

Hi Guenter,

For the first couple of minutes, to my ears, this was very "Swingle Singers" sounding (one of my all-time favourite groups). Then the sax came in. What a great segue! You've put this arrangement together with outstanding attention to detail. The whole presentation was excellent to listen to. It must have taken ages to assemble!

Regards,
Noel

Hi Guenter....great listen...thanks for posting. Very complex piece...using Vocaloid, samples and RT snippets...and so many tracks! You really know your way around the software!

Thanks Charlie, Floyd, Noel and MountainSide for your nice comments.

@Floyd: Yes, he would have written a well tempered Brent, I'm sure.
You can calm down: I won't do Country.

@Noel: I'm glad you are back to my "channel". Missed you on my last post.
That Swingle Singers tribute was deliberate. I used to listen to them a lot.
You are right: it took quite some time.

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

Hi Guenter,

This is of the largest-scale and most complex uses of RealTracks that I've ever seen. I take it that you used only your voice with the Vocaloid software. And out come those beautiful female voices in perfect tune? Mind blowing!

Hi Bob and Aleck,

thanks for your nice words.

@Aleck: The female voices are Avanna, mine are the male ones.
Avanna is Vocaloid, mine is DirctWave Sammpler.

Just got to this and man glad I did. I too would like to know where the female fills came from? Edited portion: Sorry I just read your original post after I listened to the production and you already answered.

Very enjoyable listen!



Later,

Me thinks you've mastered using vocaloid w/ BIAB... maybe we can convince Peter to consider including it and some vocal stubs in future releases of BIAB. Well done Guenter!@

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

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

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

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!
