This song, "Homage to My Cats", is the next outcome of the reviewing effort last year. (The first one is "Visiting Beautiful Kyoto (Remixed)" I posted last week (1/11/19)).
It is a revised version of "Homage to Cats", and is much simpler and more elegant than the original. I hope, however, you would listen to it as a new song.

As always, your feedback will be highly appreciated.

You can listen to the song at the following address on Soundcloud.

Fun and whimsical, just like a cat's attitude.
I lived with cats all my life, I dig it smile

Maybe you should license this to cat cafe in Japan, so they can play it for cats. I remember when I visited Tokyo years ago, cat cafes where very popular.

Best regards,
Misha.

Hi Misha,

Thank you for your comment. I am glad you think the song well describes cats' attitude. Because you are a cat fancier, let me introduce my cats to you.

Yes, cat cafes are popular in Japan. I understand they are for the people who love cats very much but are not allowed to have them at their home for some reasons.

Licensing the song to cat cafes looks a nice idea but no plan so far smile

Best regards,
Hiroshi

Thank you for your comment. I understand Chili the cat is the name of a tweeter in Texas. Am I right? Is he very popular?

A lovely homage, Hiroshi! I bet the cats love this as much as we do. Very relaxing. I thought the mix sounded top notch. Very professional, and well layered. Thanks for sharing smile

Hi J&B,

Thank you for your comment. I am glad you like the song.

I am sure your Border Collie is very cute. We had a dog at home for a long time. It was just 8 years ago that we had a cat for the first time. I must confess we were instantly knocked out by her.

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.

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.

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."
