Hey Chris,beautiful piece, very well done. Only suggestion is to maybe raise the melody volume a tad, it is very nice and should be noticed a little more.

Hi Chris,

This is very nice! I love waltzes when they are played correctly and this is played perfectly. The chimes in the guitar are a real nice touch. The accordion sounded particularly nice - not scratchy or irritating - just right!

Excellent work!

Alan

Merci beacuop!

Thanks Mike, Alan and Graham !
I've composed this melody with my guitar. Then, I've used a midi keyboard. On the right side, there's the melody and on the left side, there's the bass line. Then I've choosed a VSTI for the accordion. Christian

What a tune! I loved the arrangement on this, the way the melodies work together with that infectious bassline is pure ear candy. Not to mention the groove of this is great too, and the accordion work here is flawless.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Thanks Deryk, Sergio and Shigeki.
To find a nice melody is not so obvious but it's always a challenge to look for it. Christian

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!
