Started out like Robert Wyatt's version of Ship Building.
Nice start and a solid rhythm to finish.


Cheers

Nice New Age music. Could have been a little busier for my tastes, but well done nonetheless.

Nice and chill. Good vibe and build, and the banjo was a pleasant surprise.

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

Will,

This is really nice. Well done.

It is actually an overall kind of sound I've been looking to use for some "modern" singer-songwriter kinds of productions (including the banjo!). Especially the piano. Many of the BIAB pianos are sort of "busy"...this one is what I've been looking for. It would be nice if you listed the actual RT name - not just the number - in order to know what that is, you have to then open the program and go to the RT selector to find it.

Thanks for using that RealDrum track, too! I haven't heard that kick sound from a RealDrum before...very effective.

Listening through a 2nd time. I am really liking this...

Love it, Will. You start off with "Nothing special here..." and it reminds me of "Move along now. There's nothing to see here." Well, there is PLENTY to listen to hear (sic). Man, I love how you built this, starting with embers and adding to it until you've achieved a bonfire. And then it quickly snuffed out with a long sustain. It leaves the listener (at least this listener) with a warm sense of beauty. Thanks.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Beautiful chord progression, relaxing ambient instrumentation. I enjoyed the mix, lots of airy reverb. Clever title, referring to pandemic I guess?

It is an interesting point of view... I had a much busier version of the track, but some friends of mine said it was way too busy for this genre. Maybe they were wrong and you are right.

Thanks for taking time to listen!

Thanks for your nice comments! The banjo was a "last minute decision" and yes, I think it turned out alright.

Hi Floyd,

Thanks a lot for listening and your kind comments!

It is not the first time that you tell me to write the correct names of the RTs. I feel like the newbie I am now... what is it I am doing wrong? I thought the RT number was the important information I need to deliver?

Hi Janne,

Yes, referring to the pandemic, but it is not only a bad thing. When we all start to travel again in 2021 we will be able to talk/chat with everyone in the world because we have been through the same thing. New possible friends...

Thanks for your nice comments about the track. Much appreciated!

Will, I enjoyed this work. I liked the effect you got in the early measures with the pad..it almost seemed like you were "feathering in" the synth and possibly some brushes, nice result. Once the rhythm picks up, is there a shaker in there, or is it part of the RD track? And the wood blocks? Also liked the reverb throughout. Very nice!!

Hi Will,

This song has something intriguing. It is repeating itself but all the time new instruments come in, like the woodblocks and the banjo. The synth has a dominant role, but that makes it so intriguing. I like that!
A very nice composition all together.

Nice day,
Hans

Thank you for listening, Tano Music! Yes, the shaker is from the RD track!

Very cinematic. This would be a good tune for the sync libraries.

There have been several nice instrumental all BiaB track productions posted lately and this is an excellent addition.

Simply a great use of RT/RD's and illustrates their power (in talented hands).

Very nice and much enjoyed!

Nicely done. Yep... I agree with Bud and Janice in saying this would be a good song to place with a sync library.

Good stuff there

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?

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."
