My latest classical style theme. Giglio Bianco, played on the keyboard.
No RT used but two midi super tracks then layered using reason 10

Giglio bianco is Italian for white lily ( I hope )

MIDI SuperTracks in song: 2056:Piano, Rhythm CelticAir Ev 085
MIDI SuperTracks in song: 2058:Strings, Rhythm CelticAir Ev 085

Used the strings for the choir as well and panned them well apart

Hi Graham,

You have such a wonderful touch on the keys. This is just so pretty. The piano has somewhat of a Baroque styling. I like Baroque over most other classical subgenres as it is generally more melodious and light. You tryly shined on this. Take a bow, mate!

Graham, very nice composition. The classical nature of the harmonic movement and melody fit perfectly with your choice of instrumentation. The choir choice added great texture to the piano element. Resulting track is exactly what it was meant to be--ideal for restful listening. Well done!

Graham,

Melodic and relaxing.The delicate piano is very good.
An interesting and enjoyable change from your accordion work.

Dear "Furry"...

Your song, "Giglio Bianco", has a spaciousness of sound that is so much vaster than the few instruments that performed it. It's like an orchestrator took a piano score and reworked it into a symphony.

It had a soothing effect on my nervous system. If I had taken my blood pressure while listening to it, I'm sure I would have gotten a very low reading! That's a testimonial to how other-worldly and pastoral your composition was in tone and feeling.

Your piano-playing skills certainly added to the divinely restful nature of the piece. I'm sure the angels loved it , too :), "furry" !!!

Also, I liked how the end of the music was followed by such a great deal of silence. It's as though you invited your listening audience to dream up their own internal music while meditating on what they had just heard...Very imaginative way to present your song.

Floating on a cloud,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage")

Wow Graham - this is truly stunning smile Beautiful on the ears, and it flows gorgeously and effortlessly. It has a cinematic quality to it as well. I can imagine it sounding perfect in a movie soundtrack.

You should be proud of this one. Great work, and thanks for sharing!

Graham, this is absolutely beautiful! Great mix also.

This borders classical and new age and I loved it. This reminded me of Jim Brickman.

Two thumbs up on this my friend.

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
