Please forgive me for posting this so soon after my previous post. But I saw over in the Shout Box that this is National Funk Day. So, I wanted to get this one in. I'm leaving town for the rest of the day and didn't want to miss this opportunity. Again apologies.

Will post the BIAB tracks when I get back this evening. Thanks!

Very Funky Alan and Di.

This has certainly captured an excellent feel, smooth, real smooth.

Going back for another listen.

Well Alan you know that we're in the same page here. Very nice piece here. As a matter of fact I should have included the muted wa wa guitar in my last one, very much used in the 70's.
In fact I might still do that. Liked it a lot.

Great work here! You captured a perfectly relaxing vibe here - it was easy to just listen and dry away. I wouldn't change a thing! Nothing like some good old fashion calming funk music smile

Thanks so much for sharing!

Sounds great Alan! You are in a musical frame of mind 24/7! I was imagining all sorts of musical fills and melody all the way through! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Torrey.

Yeah, I, too, had a few ideas for some fill but they wanted a musical bed with little to no melody, so that's what I gave them. I'll probably leave it as is for a while. Maybe another submission opportunity will cime my way. Glad you liked it! And, indeed, I have music on my mind 24/7! I've written or co-written over 800 songs and still have dozens of ideas. Thanks for the listen - much appreciated!

Alan

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.

Video Help - My Band-in-a-Box® Won't Open!
