Everyone needs a Magic Garden to unwind, meditate, and/or just to get some piece and quiet.

BiaB style = New Age w/ Shakuhachi Synth.
I did the following changes:
1-piano to a harp-Kontakt-Harp
2-Guitar to a Psaltery - Kontakt-Psaltery
3-string to a Choir - Play-Symphonic Choirs
4-drums-as is except I used many different sound sources
5-bass to a pad-Ultra Analog - Ambient-Whispering Wind

Secret sauces = I can't tell you. They are a secret! OK I'll tell ya, EQ, slight compression and the Studio One warming plug-in.

Edit - I am playing the flute via my wind controller.

A very enjoyable piece, Mario. Cool sounds.

(What do you mean by "the Studio warming plug-in"?)

A style of music I enjoy a lot, Mario. You did well on this track.

I would also like to know what "the Studio warming plug-in" is?

Yep...magical. Especially loved the change just before the 2:00. Not only relaxing, but inspirational. Thanks for both. I needed that.

Mario,

As always, your flair for creating musical ambience shines. I found this an enjoyable and relaxing listen and a fine way to spend 3 minutes.

I congratulate you and your use of the wind controller. You've really got this mastered!

All the best,
Noel

Wow - really nice work Mario smile It sounds so space-like, and so surreal. It is really pretty too, and your work on the wind controller really shines here. Not to mention, I don't think you could have chosen a more fitting title for this tune.

Great job and thanks for sharing!

Great title and composition. We live in the woods and have no planted garden but encounter nature's magical gardens regularly throughout the trails.

Very nice!!!!

Mario,

A very soothing headphone listen- everything works well together ( percussion is subtle too).
Mind opening and peaceful... especially coming from a guy with 19
computer tabs open!

Nicely meditative, good combination of instruments to create the mood. I really like the percussions, your flute playing and the effecting in the pads.

Magic being the prominent word and sound.

Honest I closed my eyes leaned back on the chair headphones on and I was gone.

That is some piece of equipment, the wind controller and well played.

Googled the biz on the wind controller, now on xmas list.

Thanx Floyd. The Studio warming plug-in is Studio One Pro's console shaper. I used the smooth patina preset with a minor modification.

Thanx Joe. The guitar work is BiaB's guitar track, I did not play a guitar on this one.

I felt that the plug-in took some of the digital edge off. That, IMHO, make the tracks blend better so it was more like analog.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
