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

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
