The lyrics are based on a old Chinese poem style. It is written in Classic Chinese by a very talented poet. Will try to translate later.

Hello queko,

I loved it! When that bass line came in, it put a big smile on my face. I've always loved Jazz and this is so good. The vocalist has a beautiful voice. And the lead guitar riff is sweet! I really enjoyed this! Would love to hear more of your music. Best to you.

Alan

Really enjoyed that. Did you do the percussion separately, or was that a BiaB Track also?

Thanks for listening to my song. The percussion is primarily self-made but I do use BIAB to generate the fills here and there. forgot which real drum style I used. BIAB is a very versatile and creative tool. It really gets my creativity going when I am stuck.

Wow - what a tune! It sounds smooth as butter, and that lead guitar, as others have said, is fantastic. The groove is lovely, and the track has a really velvety tone to it that I find enchanting.

Really well done, thanks so much for sharing smile

Fantastic piece quekou! I found this very hypnotic and captivating. How did you get the synthesized vocals to sound so rich? Brilliant use of effects too. Thank you so much for sharing, its always a blast listening to your tunes! Including Mirage!

It was very interesting to see a song based on a specific Chinese poem. Seems pretty creative!

This is excellent.

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

ah. Now that was an unexpected treat! A great example of how BIAB can be used for a modern sounding track! Well done. Good crisp clear vocals too. Much enjoyed.

This is effin' incredible. The vocals are just...I can't even verbalize it... The RTs were are tastefully chosen and the production values are immaculate.

Well done!

BIAB can definitely be used for modern sounding music. Lots of producers spend tons of money on pre-made loops with not much flexibility to work with whereas BIAB real tracks provides virtually unlimited "loops" to work with in any keys with many instruments. And they are a lot more flexible because they take chords!.

Thanks for listening to my music. smile

the vocal is synthesized with Yamaha Vocaloid software. Then it's heavily process in Ablele Live with stock plug-ins such as compressor, eq8, echo etc. it's also overdubed with a nother track with only the reverb wet of the original vocal. The end result is drastically different than the dry source does sound very much so like a robot. Thanks for listening to my music !

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
