Brave Man ..Although you do have a wild streak in your work at times.

But this time you went wild, I enjoyed it and found it to be educational and experimentally refreshing, the vocals on the chorus are good and prove to a certain degree, IT CAN BE DONE IN BIAB.

I think you have proved a point Floyd , Enjoyed it .

But not as well as I have enjoyed your past posts/songs.

Although it was a fun listen !!.
Thanks

There's a lot of nifty cool experimentation on the forun these days...
And I love it!
Good job Floyd...
I think you have broken the mold...
And have truly written a "modern" country song using Biab!

floyd,

Nice song!
The melody is very catchy.
It's amazing that you didn't make me feel that you made it only with loops.
A good song is a good song regardless of how it is made.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Floyd,

Some really impressive production touches on this . . . but let’s start first with the song: Really engaging . . . that clap really gets the toe tapping. And your vocal is so soft and smooth on this—reminds me of an 80’s ballad. But that chorus production is really cool . . . not sure if that’s delay, multiple tracks or a combination of the two, but a slick sound. And love the ending. Cool tune!

Kind regards,

Deej

I can see from the comments that many people like your voices in the chorus... to be honest I thought the part from around 1:00 to 1:15 was the weakest part of your track... it sounded a bit "muddy" compared with the rest.

But still... it was a pleasure to listen to this... and it is great that you try out different styles of music!

Take care,
Will


Will - thanks for the thoughtful review. I can understand that that segment (from 1:00 to 1:15 - and the others like it) could sound somewhat "muddy". It might depaend on the speakers one is listening on, but it is, in fact,...dense. A bit more complex than most of what we do. In headphone or earbuds, it seems less so (in my opinion). And.... this is a bit experimental for me...

Yes, this is different from your usual stuff, but it's good stuff!

Imaginative. Complex. Memorable.

Vocal is smooooooooth!

That's a reggae tune my friend! You turned it out in nice fashion! VERY clever use of background vocal tricks in the chorus! Great job Floyd! Thanks, Torrey.

First time I've heard you sing something other than country, it was great! Wouldn't mind at all hearing more like this. And of course the acronymic tribute was a sentiment I'm sure we all share!

Loops are fun, and this song was a lot of fun to listen to.

Super clever, but as usual, you've crafted it by adding an emotional core.

Thanks for the peek behind the curtain as well! smile


Floyd,
What David said covers it- the vocal on verses is very connected to a good feeling. Not entirely sure about the processing on chorus vocals but looking forward to digging into how you created the loops.

Robert

Tangmo - I always enjoy reading your comments on a song and the effect it has as you see it... thanks for the interesting comments!!

Wow, man! This is wild, Floyd. Amazing what one can do with just loops --well, not everyone. Great explanation, too. Really cool song. Thanks for making this place a better place to learn.

I took a course in writing modern music several years ago that was very useful and informative. The course went pretty deep into how artists captured audio snippets from pre-recorded commercial releases to create 'new' sounds and build a song around it.

It's similar to what you've done here. I've done a few for practice using BIAB songs from the User Showcase even though I could easily and probably easier make loops from RealTracks and Midi like you've done here.

My point being that with my version of BIAB, there's more than 3,100 hours of recorded music using 7,422 Styles and greater than 2,926 RealTrack instruments. That's an awful lot of raw material for any artist of pretty much any genre from any era to create proper, unique and original works and accurate covers if they wish.

You did a truly good job here.



Charlie - I thought that this might appeal to you. You have always seen the potential for BIAB to play a role in this type production... thanks for having a listen...

(and thanks for the comments in the Dangerous thread, too!..)

Hi Floyd,

looks like 'floydish' doesn't really apply to this killer production - I'm still undecided which one does, but right now I tend to either 'floopish', 'fleative' or possibly 'flexperimental'...

After 'Dangerous' showed me (Ok, I haven't known you as long as others have) a side of yours I had not known this one really knocked me off my feet.

Very, very flool, eh, cool - liked it a lot.

Take care,

Stefan

Hello Floyd,

You keep surprising me. First a bunch of whiskey songs and now a rum drenched reggealike song.
And only made with loops!
Very very nice. The only thing that I would have added if it was my song is a steel band in some places. There is one in BB.
But without that it still is a good song :-)

Hans

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
