Hi All
This is a song made between Musescore 3 and Band in a box midi.
I rendered this straight from Musescore 3 in which I mixed it with only Pan,Chorus and Reverb .All the backing track midi are from Biab and all the instruments are free ones from Musescore3.So a big shout out to Musescore 3 which is an excellent upgrade and also to BIAB Midi which is fantastic to work with .
It wasnt possible to sweeten the mix much just up and down volume wise.I did a five minute master in Ozone 8.The Genre I am calling Choral Pop for the want of a better term!

Let me know me if you are entertained! urs Hugh

Nicely done...
I haven't downloaded Musescore v3 yet...
But I'll probably get the LinuxAppImage pretty soon.

Hey there Hugh2, fantastic choice of instrumentation on this. The different elements really glue well together and a solid key signature choice too. The reverb really helps piece it all together. Keep it up!

Nice poppy tune.
Reminded me of Yazoo. For fun I superimposed your tune to Yazoo "Only You" song, sounded pretty interesting.
(played S.Cloud + Youtube at same time)

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Hugh, yes this tune. Open your song in SC and the Youtube link in different windows and just try to play them together. Of course they will not be in sync, but I thought soundscape was pretty cool and worked well smile

Oh yes. Definitely entertained. Loved the strength of the progression which (by itself) was quite melodious in passages. Nice work with the production and dynamics in the backing, ebbing and flowing. I also liked the ending. Unexpected and playful.

Wow - you did a fantastic job! Flows beautifully, and it sounds very lush especially considering it is strictly MIDI. Very dynamic in it's execution, and I love the way it pulses. Very easy and pleasant to listen to.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

Thanks Guys for the encouraging comments.Glad you found it enjoyable.
Hope to put the vocals to it at some stage,They go something like this

The Man Who Would Be King,
Doesnt Give A Damn About Anyone or Anything,

He Plays His Cards Close To His Chest,
He'll Make You Think Their The Best,
He'll Steal Your Hearts,Your Minds and
Then He'll Steal Your Country........

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#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.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

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.
