Not a very evocative title, but you'll feel what you feel. Named because I forced a 4/4 Funk style (already a mashup) to play a good number of 3-beat bars. I chose a funk style because I wanted a strong 1 beat. Then it was just a matter of auditioning styles until one behaved correctly. ;-) There's even a single 2/4 bar in there. If you find it first, you'll win the prize...you get to name the piece.\

It's only two minutes long and not as weird as you might think. How's that for an advertising slogan?



Key=C , Tempo 150, Length (m:s)=1:57

Soloist track has 267 notes, Soloist harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Song is saved with bar changes for Time signature,
Soloist is saved with the song : AcGuitar Fpick Alt8thsQuinn (3058)
Style is _TRICAMP.STY (Tricky Spy Funk w Amplitube Bass)

RealTracks in style: 1717:Bass, Electric, TexasBluesRockStraight Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1770:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkMovinChords Ev16 130
RealTracks in style: 1771:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkMovinMuted Ev16 130
RealTracks in song: 1292:Accordion, Rhythm TexMexCountry Ev 120
RealDrums in style: RockHardEven8^1-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

*******************

Mixed in Acid Pro 8 (still auditioning DAWs) with a little high boost on all but bass, and a high-pass/low-cut on all but bass and drums. Light to moderate compression on all tracks, heaviest on the accordian. Then a gentle master on some pre-set I have no idea what it was or did, but it came out pretty good (for me).

Trunc Funk



To note: There was/is a pesky "glitchy" noise in the drum track that may or may not be due to the time signature changes. I cleaned it up as best I could, but may have missed a spot or two. I'll get back to it eventually. If I ever decide to write and sing to this, it will be to the guitar solo in the middle. For now, it stands alone pretty well, I think.

Tangmo,

A very interesting combination of instruments - like a genre unto itself. Funk Tex-Mex Polka.

It kept my ear engaged throughout.

A happy mashup of styles. I`m a sucker for accordion and that TexMex is the best one in BiaB.
Sorry I`m not rythmically sharp enough to identify the odd beat change... but it all works!

Like floyd said "Funk Tex-Mex Polka."

We are also fans of genre mashups - one of the more fun aspects of BiaB.

We've used that accordion and, man, does it ever work in your composition.

Funky? And also cinematic...would make an interesting track in the right film.

Nice!!!!

J&B

Wow - what a unique and captivating tune! It sounds completely different to anything I've heard before. I'm not sure I know how to describe it. The accordion plays a great role here, and somehow through it all, it is a little bit funky. I'm amazed at how well this works!

Great work, and thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,
Deryk

Nice, interesting, strange and fun. Very enjoyable.

Music from "Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot" or a Johan Strauss waltz or West Coast funk... many visions/pictures in my head while listening to this.

Well done,
Will

And THAT'S Americana! LOL.

Admit it. My advertising slogan "It's only two minutes long and not as weird as you might think." worked on you, didn't it? :-)

Thank you all for the kind comments. They are very encouraging, especially Deryk's. Hard to know how wide everybody's ears are.

Though its not important to how it is heard, it's also a "mash-up" of trials in progression, the functioning of Real Tracks, DAW's, and a practical purpose of music. It will be my go-to mix for quite a while, I'm sure, especially as I audition DAW's. There's just enough "massaging" from what BIAB delivered to get my feet wet in the various choices.

Floyd pretty much summed it up, you have invented a new genre: "Funk Tex-Mex Polka". Interesting stuff!

If you are auditioning DAWs make sure Reaper is one of the ones you check out. I went through the same thing a few years ago, I got back into music after a long absence and the first thing I needed to do was upgrade to a modern DAW.

They are all very similar feature wise, so for me it came down to work flow, which one was the most intuitive to use. I tried quite a few, including some quite expensive ones, but immediately felt comfortable with Reaper, very similar work flow as my old DAW (ancient version of Adobe Audition).

Excellent! wonderful how you played with the time signature and got a completely unique and fascinating track. My ear, as well, is not as keen to pick up exactly where you Inserted the 2-beat bar but the whole track seem to skip and jump along with unexpected movements. My reaction to listening to this was that you “tamed” the RT’s, like a lion tamer gets an animal to behave differently. Kudos on this, I really enjoyed it!

Hello Tangmo, Fantastic choice of instrumentation on this! I also found this very easy to listen and a solid key signature choice too. That guitar tone is very warm and the accordion is a great touch. Well done!


Cheers,
Joe

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
