This is my new song titled "The glitter of the cove". It is a pop ballad and I categorized it to the ambient genre. My last post "Sincerely Yours (Classical Version)" was made on June 29, so it took me about two months to complete it. The point I cared about most was its arrangement, and the most time-consuming part for me was the choice of the instruments. As usual, the title of the song came from my wife as she has much better artistic sensibility than me.

I hope you like it.

Great job on this, HiroshiK! I really enjoyed the atmospheric feeling this one gives off. It's really easy to get lost in (which is a good thing!) - thanks so much for sharing smile

Do we like it? Well actually, we love it!
The chord progression turns unexpected ways and the melody enhances that even more.
This is one of your best we think!

Really fabulous piece of music Hiroshi, thoroughly enjoyed the tune and the arrangement.
It needs to be recorded by the likes of James Galway or Andre Rieu.
STUNNING music

Hello Hiroshik.
Thank you for the back story on this pretty tune.
One thing with Band in a Box when choosing instruments you are spoiled for choice. Love to hear lyrics put to this.
Nicely done.

Graham,

Thank you for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed my new song. I also appreciate your high rating to it. It would be great for me if such things could really happen! It is just a dream.

Push it enough and it could happen, I've had one of my tunes recorded by four different artists and another 3 tunes by others so there is a market for good tunes. Good luck with it

try ditching the drums and maybe dropping the tempo a few points, see what it sounds like ? It really is a gorgeous ballad. Could you pm me the dots for it and I'll maybe do a version if that's ok ?

Hello Rob,

Thank you for your comment. In my case, I am using Sonar X3 for the tuning work including instruments selection.

Unfortunately, I do not have any talent to write lyrics. It would be great if I someone could put lyrics to the song.

Thank you for your suggestion and encouragement. As a matter of fact, I had sought for the chance to license of my early works mainly through some licensing companies but had no success so far. I have not given it up, but suspended it for some time. Now I think I should resume it.

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Enhance Your Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows Installation

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

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.
