I have to dig to see what realtrack I used. The vocal is synthesized if it sounds a little weird that's why.
It's a minor blues progression. wrote the song for the cat we had to give away due to serious allergy.

hope you like it.

Kali oh Kali sleeps anywhere
oh Kali at any corner any chair
snoozing by the window
she doesn't care

Kali oh Kali likes comfy beds
oh Kali oh Kali likes hiding in closet
dozing below piano
but she likes boxes the best

Kali oh Kali has pretty eyes
oh Kali watches birds fly and chipmunks go by
she wondered to my side last night
she whispered in my ears "sleep tight"

Kali oh Kali
Kali oh Kali

I know all about seriously cat allergies as my wife, two sons and I have them.

I am not fond of synthesized vocals however you did a very good job on this. I really liked your backing tracks, great job on that.

A very nice song.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

One of the best Vocaloid things I have ever heard.

Extremely well done. You used the vocaloid as an art form here.

Great lyrics. Love the tonal structure of the piece. Very, very, very good.

Cheers.

Hi!

Very, very nice!~ Love the backing tracks. This is so professionally done.

Moving the pan on the lead guitar was really nice. I enjoyed this very much.

This is very nice, very smooth. I love the guitar solo. Good work! The synthesized voice fits well with the character of this song.

The vocal is synthesized using Yamaha Vocaloid, the soundbank is Sweet Anne.

I really like the mood of this. The rhythm section works nicely, and there are several simple but effective sounds. The blues guitar soloist is great, and the reverb on the guitars is perfect. Singing reminds me of Carole King, excellent work with Sweet Ann, also those backing vocal parts are nice addition. There is not enough songs about cats so this fills the shortage wink

Thank you all very much for taking the time listening to my music. I am glad that found it enjoyable.

The progression is in common minor blues form and melody line was improvised on my guitar and refined when I programmed the vocloid with the backing.

Again, appreicated your kind comments.

Sophisticated,simple enough to be hypnotic and extremely well produced. If you hadn`t acknowledged the vocaloid treatment I probably wouldn`t have known, its so good.
Very well done!

Thank you for your kind words. The vocaloid is a great tool for us nonsingers though sometimes it is a pain to adjust the parameters to make it sound tiny little more natural.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
