Psycho Guitar

Just some silly playing around with a few RTs and effects - nothing too serious. I put this together one afternoon about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It's only 2:34 in length. Di was napping and I had a little time for music. It's no big thing ... just some fun time for me. I made a few track substitutions from the original style. And, obviously, I added a few affects ... mostly echo/delay and a slight amount of flange. As always any comments welcome.

Sounds great to me, Alan, man, that guitar is great! Nice use of FX on it.

Good instrumental, enjoyed.

BIG snare sound...nice.
I do love some wailing guitar - the FX are subtly done for the most part. Reminds me of a bluesier Santana due to the rhythm.
Nice one.


Cheers

Hi Alan,

Hey, that was a good afternoon's work!

This is driving music - not country lanes but interstate, or motorway here in England.

A fabulous track and a great mix. The only thing wrong with it?
NOT LONG ENOUGH - I've got a 30 min drive to get to the coast and I want to play it all the way!

Hope you and Di are staying safe and well.
Take care my old friend.

ROG.

Effects sound good on the guitar. Awesome sound overall. I was really in to this---two and a half minutes is too short. I wanted more!

Enjoyable cross-over disco rock, which I haven't much heard, thus this sounds very original in my ears. And that guitarist, amazing - BIAB and your talent make it sound fresh and hot, for some reason this reminded me of Jason Becker. Super mix and great use of effects. Should definitely be much longer smile

Beautiful playing Al. The band aint half bad either.
Seriously, you achieved more in an afternoon, while "Di was napping", than I can in days and weeks of work/play.
Thanks for sharing, Al.
Cheers,
Mike

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
