just a demo im working on. vocal is from a producer loops music pack got the chords from the midi instruments files included in the song construction kit in the pack and replaced it with realtracks/realdrums then edited it a bit.

hopefully it matches up pretty well. im not a pro and mostly do it by ear :-p but seems to sound nice so far!

I mess around with loops sometimes in the same way you have here. Your results are better than mine, I usually don't come up with anything worth posting. That's a lot of vocal for a loop, I have noticed they're doing that these days. I'd like to see PG do a lead vocal RT, it might be fun to play around with for people like myself who can't sing. Good work, keep it up!

Odd that the drums are off centre.
You've been very tidy with the loop ends.
Cymbals are a bit washy and loud.
Not my cup of tea but seems good.

You are much better at loops than I am!

Loved that EP intro. Great work with those vocal loops.

IMHO the drums fit OK but they are just to loud. Trim back the volume and you will have a winner. YMMV

This is a good demo.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

thanks for your feedback!

at first i thought the drum comment was being nitpicky but then i listened to the song on speakers (as i mostly use headphones as i dont have a ton of privacy) and the drums are def a bit loud.....oops :-p will work on that and they feel a tad static for the entire song.......so ....

but what i love about band in a box is it really is a producers dreamin that you have a TON of options of mixing and matching thats really part of the fun that even though if you cant write music you can kinda "compose"/conduct in a way your song.

think i might upgrade to audiophile if 2020 comes out soon *TM* just to have that extra level of CD quality tracks :-)

thanks for the impact!

the vocals were from a music pack from producer loops def check them out they have some great stuff.. :-)

Dang that is good. I could listen to this for hours what a winner. I like it all beautiful.


Music is an expression that is a universal language, Never criticize anybody to harshly. They need time to grow but when they do, they do. Always be kind in what you say and do because the man upstairs is watching.

Very inventive!

As others have noted, you certainly do have the loops sounding very polished and transitioning from one to the next very smoothly.

You've got an excellent overarching sound happening here. I enjoyed listening and learning (I've still got a long, long way to go with loops).

All the best,
Noel

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

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."
