Cool use of BIAB. The vocaloid works well.

Clever lyrics. Good mix.

Well done.

Wow - this song is a trip! This might win the award for most unique thing I have ever heard on the showcase. There is so much going on, but somehow it doesn't come across as sounding crowded. This is truly a great display of how versatile Band-in-a-Box can be.

Thank you for sharing smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very unusual song on this forum, but that's a good thing. Good combination of loops, Vocaloid and the guitar. Nice cryptic lyrics, as a Java programmer myself, I like "Java, the only coffee to drink" smile

Not in a million years could anyone have guessed BBox was involved, this is that far beyond left field!
As for the song itself, takes me back to the golden era of Kraftwerk et al. Not a shabby company to be in either cool

Definitely Different.

I liked the use of the HP 15C. I use the same exact unit!

Loved this backtrack. What a creative use of BIAB. I agree no one could have guessed this was created using BIAB. Well done
