Hello, Alan & Di

A really nice bossa nova!
I remembered Edie Gorme.
So nice to hear Di singing.
The amount of reverb applied to vocal is reminiscent of the 60's.
Very good backing track. It just fits the vocal.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi dany,

Thanks so much. And yes ... cheeses **IS** yummy! It's particularly good on, well ...almost anything!

Glad you liked it. I'll pass on your greeting to Di and tell her about your nice words regarding her vocal. She's in bed most of the time other than when she has to go to the hospital, everyday, for an infusion. She'll appreciate your kindness as much as I do.

And yeah, flutes get a bad rap. Certain elements of Jazz and Latin music would be much less colorful without them - classical music, too.

Thanks again.

Alan

Thanks so much, you two! Yeah, Di really nailed that vocal! But, that's pretty much normal for her. She misses not being able to sing. She goes to the hospital every day for an infusion of some really strong medicine and then spends 90% of her remaining time in bed. I'm glad I found this old vocal track so I could work a new arrangement around it with the BIAB Real Tracks. Glad you enjoyed it! Again, many thanks.

Alan

Hi Shigeki,

We're delighted you liked the song! I wondered who would be the first to notice the extra reverb on her voice. It was pretty common back then. I like some reverb as it makes a vocal sound fuller and warmer. But too much muddles it. I think we stopped short of muddling it!

Thanks for all the very nice comments. Wishing to the best,

Alan

Al-David,

Great sounding tune—Di does a terrific job on the vocals. All in all, you capture the Bossa Nova style perfectly. Oh, and that flute—it kills! Well done!

All the best,

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
