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

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.

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

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

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
