All Sensitive and Stuff

A tongue-in-cheek title. This piece was picked up years ago as the "background music" for a you-tube video promoting a suburban California health spa. Last time I looked, I found that video (and thus the piece) had probably more viewers/listeners than ALL my other song combined. Who'da thunk it?

BIAB midi style run through hard synth with just a little love shown to the flute melody (a few changed notes/durations and a few "grace notes" added for more realism).

I likely bent a lot of "theory" with this piece, though I didn't know that's what I was doing at the time. I just typed in chords that sounded good to me following one another until I cam full-circle.

This is and was always intended to be an "instrumental". Given that all I have left of this production is this mix, that will extend forever into the future. Indeed, I'm posting it for your hoped-for enjoyment, but also to stay involved while putting off recording vocals for another piece as long as possible. Tis a real pity when a "singer-songwriter" finds himself unable to sing.

Nice instrumental! I like the changes and arrangement.

Was the melody generated by BIAB?

Yes, it was, Dave...with just a wee bit of input/encouragement from me.

Tangmo,

Very sensitive. Not stuff-y at all. smile

An enjoyable listen. The chord changes were nice...kept it interesting throughout.

Good mix overall. I liked the bass sound a lot!

Very well done.

Very nicely done...
I enjoyed listening...
Do you wish to share the link to the YouTube video...
I think it would be interesting to see how they used your instrumental in their promotion.

Sure, Jim. Get a facial if you're in the neighborhood.

Tangmo,

Pretty melody and just ethereal enough for the purpose- I enjoyed it and feel rejuvenated!
Get that voice well soon.

Hi Tangmo,

I think that track worked out rather fine for you. I am pretty impressed with the melody that was done by BiaB.

Well done!

It seems they treated your song well by making the video to fit your composition...
Congratulations.

Nicely done - flows well, and it nice and pretty, and easy on the ears. It definitely is giving me a video games feel. Almost like it'd fit in a 90's N64 or SNES game. Nicely cinematic and a solid composition.

Thanks for sharing smile

A real showcase on the showcase forum of the power of Biab when in the hands of a talented artist.

Easy to see how it got placed. It works very well in the vid.

We don't know enough (any) theory to know what you bent but the progressions work very nicely for us.

Thanks for the backstory.

Enjoyed it all!

Very nice, indeed! Well mixed and produced. Some nice progressions in it, and like Floyd said, the bass sound is really nice!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
