Thanks, Jim - much appreciated. The black and brown puppy on the left is ours. She's now 4 1/2 years old. Name is Lucy. Maybe we need to get a Ricky?

Sophisticated cords are way above my paygrade...but we love jazz and this hits all the buttons for us.

An amazing display of the power of BiaB with a creative person behind the keyboard.

Well done!

Hi Guys!

Many thanks for those kind words. I'm not sure if it's sophisticated or not, but it sure was fun playing around with all those whistles and bells that PG Music makes for us - what a company! I'm guessing this is the 10th or 11th product of mixing various instruments and beats. I'm glad it seems to work for you. I'm putting together a full album of these - got 7 of them so far. And I'll definitely give BIAB it's due credit when I do get it ready to go.

Take care and all the best.

Alan

Works for me! smile

This is one of the styles that BiaB excels at. Great mix.

Plus, you've got super-cute puppies in the picture. Who could say anything bad about that?

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

Thanks a bunch, David! And yes, BIAB is a natural fit for the Smooth Jazz genre. I think part of it is a reflection on Dr. Gannon's brother, Oliver. He does many of the Jazz RTS and is very good at it. He recently was awarded the highest official recognition a Canadian musician can receive. The other contributing artists are also quite talented.

They make it very easy for me to plug in a few chords, grab a couple of instruments, find a style and then "GO"! I think BIAB deserves much more credit than I do. But I'm delighted you enjoyed the few things I did with their marvelous program. Many thanks! Best to you.

Alan

Thank you, Kenny! I have quite a few of these smooth jazz pieces but have only posted a few as I think vocals are always more in demand on the forums. But, I'll put one up here and there. Glad you enjoyed it - appreciate you letting me know. Again, a big welcome back!

Alan

Alan,

In everything you do, your signature is quality musicianship through and through. As I'm sitting here listening and typing, I'm finding it quite a challenge because the music takes hold and I can't type!

I love the easiness with which this creation flows. From chord to chord, the sound slides into place with precision and intent. This really is a wonderful creation and equally wonderful arrangement.

You say that you 'hope it's listenable'... it's a big and resounding "YES INDEED IT IS" from me!

Please say hi to Di from me.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

You are too kind. But I sure did enjoy your comments! The arrangement came to me pretty quickly, but deciding on the tracks took a lot more time - tried multiple combinations. Thank you again. All the best to you & yours. Di says "Hi!"

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
