I awoke this morning to a gorgeous sunrise and was inspired to write this.

I've been anxious to experiment with the new oohs and awws RTs and they are awesome!

I hope that you'll enjoy this effort.

Hi there, Don my old Irish pal.

Good to see your name on the Showcase and what a fabulous tune!

Sounds like pure Bruce Hornsby to me and I've always loved his stuff.

Wonderful choice and arrangement of RTs on this one and the mix is perfect.

I agree about the new vocal RTs - they're amazing and you've worked them in SO well.

You have a gift for writing such atmospheric and emotional music my friend.

All the best,

ROG.

Don,
Lovely! The piano and guitar tracks drift around each other and the voices sound real to me.
Warm, relaxing and uplifting music.

Thanks, ROG, me wee Brit collaborator.

I absolutely LOVE the new RTs. I'm working on another tune now.

If you're familiar with BIAB's "Drop Zone" for importing audio files, I started a thread today and need help.

TIA

You painted perfect scenery Don, just using sound...

Robert,

Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment. It's very much appreciated.

I feel a great debt to Dr. Gannon and his fabulous crew. None of my music would have been possible without their collective genius.

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.
