Many of friends told me not to buy BiaB during this summer. They told me that I would not be able to make modern dance/house-music with this software. Here's my answer:

Only using the _Electro.sty - no extra VI's added. Just a nice arrangement of chords... I love BiaB!

Will,

Welcome to the Showcase.

Good job of showing a side of BIAB that we don't see on a regular basis...

Nice work on this Will smile Very different compared to what you usually hear on the showcase, and a great example of Band-in-a-Box's versatility. I love the groove here, and you made good use of those pad synths.

Great job, and thanks for sharing!


Cheers,
Deryk

Will, excellent first 'experiment' with BIAB! Great sound, good judgements on RT's/chord chart, etc. Looking forward to more of your work!

Thank you very much to all of you for your kind replies! As you can hear it was a "quick and dirty" testing of the possibilities in BiaB. smile

I promise I will work a bit harder on my next songs in BiaB!

Hi Will and welcome!! I think you proved that our friends are not always right! The tools are available in BIAB to create just about anything we want. I know it takes some effort to do so, but doesn't anything worthwhile? Keep provin' em wrong! Rock on and thanks, Torrey

Nice to see that you could prove them wrong. You can do a lot with BIAB and a dash of creativity. Tell your friends, "Use your IMAGINATION, Squidward!" grin

Thank you! Yes, A lot can be done with BIAB and I try to see challenges instead of limitations.

I've owned BIAB for almost 3 weeks now and I am truly amazed by the possibilities, but I start to see where the limitations MAYBE could be... I think it will be difficult to make songs like Jean-Michel Jarre or Tangerine Dream did... and maybe also some Prince styles or the Soul-to-Soul style from the late 80's but I will for sure try those genres too...

Still I am very happy with my purchase!
