Hi Ya'll!

I hope every one had a great 4th of July!!!!

I decided to get back to the DAW because I was getting rusty. I chose to rework Requiem For Smoochie D. Cat. A very difficult song I must admit. So I changed the tempo and widened the scope and soften the edges for a smoother transition. It not sounds easier to listen to.

If you have an interest, give it a listen...

Thanks again,
All the best

Interesting listen.

I wasn't a big fan of the reverb on the piano - it has a very lo-fi sound to it and some odd bass notes around 1:47.

It sounds like there's some odd phasing going on with the strings.

I'm personally a fan of mixes where the instruments sound like they're in the same space, so the contrast between the space the strings were in vs. the piano space was a bit off-putting.

What did you use for the strings? There's an interesting "screech" you get out of them in the end.

All said - interesting listen. Poor Smoochie. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi dcuny!

Thanks for your listen. I really appreciate your comments. This piece is a virtual instruments experimental piece. I created this entire song imputing each note for piano and bass piano notes manually. I disagree with your "lo-fi" comment may I suggest you try another medium i,e. car stereo. The song is a requiem not a lullby. I took great liberties in making it as odd and off putting as possible!!! =D

Regarding "poor Smoothie," he deserved everything he got for his reign of terror!!!=D

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
