Hi Rob,

Made me smile straight away!

My parents bought me a Uke when I was seven and although I've had lots of
different guitars over the years, I've still got that Uke hanging on the wall
next to the Fenders!

Loved the track. It's got an almost Reggae beat to it which I find infectious and
rather pleasing. As I said, it brought a smile to my face from the first bar to the last.

Fabulous whistling, by the way.

Cheers,
ROG.

smirk whistle Got me smiling from ear to ear, Rob. Very cheery indeed. The group sounds great, and your whistling is superb. I tried a long whistle solo once and quickly learned where the phrase wet your whistle came from. Stay well!


Enjoy whatever happens!

That was really enjoyable. I dare anyone to listen to that and not feel #Happy Upbeat. Great whistling, hand clapping and xylophone. They were the icing on the cake. That Uk sounds great. I have to get the latest version of BIAB. I'm still working with 2012.

Super cool Rob!

As Rog mentioned there is a slight reggae vibe that really
adds to the feel.

Nice whistling and xylophone by you and the RT's are great.

Bouncy and fun!

A happy cheerful song that put a smile on my face. Just what I needed tonight!

Excellent whistling and mix.

The midi xylophone was a perfect choice. It'd've been nice to hear a real one with the ringing overtones but needs must.
A lovely piece Bob/Rob well done.


Cheers

Rob, this is great. My foot was tapping, my fingers were clicking and my face was smiling.
The whistling is sensational. You could have had a career doing it.
Thanks for sharing such a happy tune in these challenging times.

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
