Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Oh yeah...what a sweet style mashup.

We liked everything about it and for us it's hard to go wrong by throwing in gypsy jazz fiddle.

Classy and cool!

Oh yeah. Sweet syncho-perc in the stereo, a great progression and some very good instrumental turns. I liked this a lot.

Whew! This is what happens when you put BIAB in the hands of a pro! Great way to combo 2 movin’ Latin styles, excellent selection and arranging of the RT and RD and Loop components. Totally enjoyable listen, expertly done. Thanks Mike for adding some Latin love to my morning coffee!

Really nice work on this, Mike smile The styles you fit together actually work perfectly. I love how upbeat and happy of a groove it has. I can imagine it working with a dancefloor flawlessly.

Great job and thanks for sharing!

"Cuban Pete"...

I think that you served-up to your listeners the equivalent of a tasty musical "gumbo" by throwing that Latin gypsy jazz violin solo on top of all that percolatin' bass and percussion! It was a really hot, and inspired thing to do, sir. It's as though Stephane Grappelli stumbled into a recording studio where the Buena Vista Social Club were jammin'! And with that electric guitar solo stepping out on it's own, I think you could give your song a subtitle, like, "Son of Bossa Nova" cool

I love mixing musical genres, and I think "Havana Son" is an exciting, flavorful, and original blend. I'm gonna come back here and listen to it again, but first I'm gonna move some furniture around so I can bust a few moves to the music!

Double dee-lighted,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage)

Really, really good!! The fiddle sounds more like a melody than a solo which is just what the tune needs. The mix and composition are fantastic!!! Take care. Greg

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."
