Definitely different from anything we've heard from you.

And it is assuredly of our liking.

Excellent use of the synths and midi instruments.
The dynamics throughout are very effective.

Yet another fine composition and mix!

J&B

Grabbed my attention from the very first note.

You, sir ... pound for pound, you are - in my view - one of the very best composers on here. Some of us have technique, some of us have great musicality - you and a few others have both to spare.

The track itself: sharp, crisp, succint and simply oozing professionalism. Absolutely adore it.

You are also incredibly consistent. I've listened to some of your other tracks ... superb job every time.

Hats off.

I latched onto it right from the first E Piano chord! Liked those “stabs” from the brass section. Very nice!!

Mike,
Cool arrangement. Fun synths, 70s/80s feel. Rolls very well, but I do feel some blend in mixing (Acoustic+Synth) would improve it. Common "master bus" FX? Very different from what I heard by you. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

You should step out of your box more often.

Everything about this is top shelf! Super job on those synth leads and brass stabs.

I really liked this one.

I like it! Has a real catchy groove and lots of interesting dynamics. It's spacious too and the tonal balance is sweet. Very enjoyable.

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks.

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
