Saturday morning about a week ago, I went for a walk at the beach close to my home.

We had unusual high temperatures for a February month in Denmark. It was a foggy weather, but visually beautiful to see how the sun was fighting to shine through the mist and light up the day and the surrounding landscapes.

I spent way too long time that morning at the beach (and was not properly dressed for the weather) and as a result went down with a cold and high fever for a few days. On the other hand the experience inspired me to produce this track:

The Morning Mist


RealTracks used:
Bass: RT1162
Drums: BodhranCelticReel
Soprano Sax: RT2419
Cello: RT3261
Guitar: RT1164

I hope you will enjoy the track!
Will

Will,
Cool track with shamanic element. Very clear mix. Reminded me of music of Norwegian singer Mari Boine.

P.S. I recorded couple of my best songs when had crazy flu...just saying, not suggesting you have to aim for it smile

Thank you!

Misha.

Did you ever get the chance to guitar noodle over that "Baby And The Bass" tune...
I looking forward to hear what you do with it.

Interesting juxtaposition of instruments.
The sap. sax reminded me of Roxy Music.

Wow - this is a really intriguing and interesting piece of music smile It has a really mysterious, eerie quality to it that I liked. Oddly beautiful, and a really good example of Band-in-a-Box's diversity as well.

Really well done - thanks for sharing!

Interesting Celtic feel, the sax brings some mystic mist into the song. Nice to hear that new cello RT in use.

Will,

You are putting together some very interesting tracks.
Unique. Enjoyable.

You could easily do rap lyrics over this...

Good mix. A good listen.

Hi Jim,

Was that you commenting on FAWM? I get confused about all these different usernames. smile

Yes, it works to jam with the guitar to the track, but I am disappointed with myself over the track and I will delete it when FAWM is finished, because it didn't turn out the way I wanted.
Techno is actually a very hard genre to make a good track in, it often sounds simple but it is quite demanding to make a good dance-able track.

Anyway... thanks for listening and commenting!
Will

Hi rayc,

Thanks for listening! Now I have to look up the meaning of "juxtaposition" - never heard that word before.
But thanks for commenting!

That is a very creative mashup of RT genres that resulted in a nice song.

And the mix sounds really good on our monitors.

We enjoyed our listens!

Well done

Oh yes Will! I really dig this one. Very creative combination of RT's. You made them work very well together.

Excellent tune. Love the way the song built and you tucked in some new instruments. Was very cool to anticipate what was next. Very engaging

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

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."
