Get down, baby!

This is one area in the PG universe that really should be better and it's not like it hasn't been done already. All the good arranger keyboards have great funk styles. The two big Kahunas in the arranger world are the Korg Pa4 and the Tyros 5. Check this out:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpj32n8xODw

This this one is the absolute bomb in an arranger keyboard demo. Marco is a monster but listen to these backing tracks. Wow!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQJr0hklTjw

Here's some equally killer Tyros funk styles:

PG would have no problem at all bringing in players who could record tracks just as good as Korg and Yamaha did. The great value of Biab is these are four to five grand keyboards but at the bottom of it all they're just prerecorded tracks. PG can easily do the same thing with the RT's and midi too for that matter. Really check out the horn lines too.

I realize this is an older post but, in my opinion, still relevant. Although there have been a few nicer funk keys, there's still nothing as sweet as those three links Bob posted - they're killer!

So, still a +1!

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
