Hey Gang:

I think I've achieved my goal for now with this song. I tried a little "reverse engineering" to get it to where we are today!

If you have a moment, give it a re-listen!

All the best!
Dave

Hi Dave,

I have not heard this before now. It is a very, very beautiful piece of music!

Which tracks in BiaB did you use for this?

Hi Will:

Thanks for the listen! This song is experimental, meaning that other resources were used in it's creation. BIAB was used to format this song to give me a guide, but "Plogue Sforzando," (which comes with BIAB) was my main engine for: Violins, cellos, bass viols, Symphonic hits and piano!

This was a very satisfactory project for me because, I've had "Plogue Sforzando," for a few years but never knew how to use it until now!

Thanks again for you time...

All the best,
Dave

Great work on this Dave, thank you for sharing this! This is beautiful and the instruments are layered nicely. The pads are very immersive and the strings are gorgeous. Well done!

Hi Joe!

Thanks for your listen!!! This was not an easy song to produce but I learned a lot in the process. After a period of time, I was able to softened the overall pads and strings to make it a bit easier on the ears...until the climax!

Thanks again,
Dave

Wow - I don't think there's anything I can say that hasn't already been mentioned. It sounds so huge, so lush, and so emotional. Frankly, it is beautiful. I don't know if you've heard of them, but if you enjoy music like this, there's a band called Cinematic Orchestra you might take to. This reminds me a lot of them.

Great work here Dave - it was a painstaking process to get here by the sounds of it, but the end result is certainly work it. Thanks for sharing smile

^ Here's a link to that band I mentioned, in case you had any interest in listening. smile

Deryk, Deryk, Deryk!!!

WOOOOOWWW!!! So, I'm just a small (Brooks) trying to enter a larger stream!

Thank you for this link.

I've been holding back on a few projects because I haven't found the BIAB "REAL DRUMS" Tracks that fit my concepts. I'm sure they are available, I just need to take more time to locate them.

I really like this band (Cinematic Orchestra) a lot, and look forward to hearing more of them soon. Now, when people get mad at me for my new creations, do you mind if I tell them it's all YOUR FAULT??? =D "LOL!!!"

Thanks a million! LOOK OUT!!!

All the best,
Dave

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.)
