Dear club members,
A breath of life animates the universe. The world around us seems beautiful as a mirage, but if we
look closely, we realize that life arises and sustains itself in everyday combat. Whether at the level of the universe or at our dimension, it is always born to die. Philosophical question to mature and for which we have no answer

Today, I put down this soundtrack without words. Lyrics that you can create with your imagination. I used the biab chords and for the rhythm guitar ( style Recuerdo). Everything was imported into studio one with vst guitars that I will specify if you want. The musical ornament was made with realtracks (piano, drums) and vst (strings, vocal). Thank you for listening if you wish and for your comments.

Hello Dero13, alias JJJ,

You made a lovely melody with this one!
I had hoped the vocals in it had started earlier, but nevertheless they fit very nice.

But your song made me more melancholic than that combative mood I had to be in, considering your post...

Hans

I always appreciate a a great instrumental, and this is no exception.

This is a beautiful mix between orchestral and choral.

Sensitively delivered. Excellent actually.

As VideoTrack said, "This is a beautiful mix between orchestral and choral."
That is a great description.

There has been a lot of cinematic feeling music posted lately and this is one
of the best. Great choice of tracks and it is engaging from the first note through the last.

Lovely!

Hello Toucher,

I thank you for your comment.

Hello Birchwood,

You know I hesitated to introduce the backing vocals earlier but I wanted to introduce the intruders gradually and because the song is short, I made this choice. Thanks for coming

Hello Videotrack

The orchestral is not easy, because no poetry is associated with it and this one is present only by the melody which leaves the door open to the dreaming of the listeners and to the words which they want to put on it.
It is true that this site is made more for songwriters than for intrumentalists. Thank you for your nice comment.

Hello Janice et Bud

It is always a pleasure to read your encouraging comments. It is true that I really like the orchestral.
Again a big thank you to you

Kindly regard

Dero13 alias JaniJackFlash

One to float away on; beautifully done ( especially the nylon guitar track).
Very good!

Very relaxing and beautiful, this shows a side of BIAB I haven't experiment with.

I'm at a loss on how you did this, the production sounds so good. VST guitars? Do you take BIAB midi content and use a different sample? Really sounds good.

Hello RobertKc and Frankp,

Thank you for this kind comments. The vst guitar is IIya Efimov Nylon guitar. A very good vst to nylon or electric guitar.

I used recuerdo at the midi style level of biab for the chord grid. I added the lead guitar with the same vst more other vst for the orchestral and choral part.

Best regard

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

I have to agree with what everyone else has said ... they already used the superlatives I had in mind as I listened.

This is well done ... I could hear as the signature song to a movie ... very, very cinematic. This quite a bit different from what we typically hear on this forum ... good in the best of ways. A beautiful arrangement and presentation. Everything sat beautifully and and perfectly throughout the entire piece. It was a true pleasure and treat for me to have the opportunity to listen to such a gorgeous song!

Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

Hello dcuny, Greg and Henry,

Thank you for your nice comments

Hello Alan,

Thank you for analysis and your nice comment. It is true that instrumental soundtracks are rarer on this platform. I tried to show that more midi styles could be used with good vst. There are two purely midi styles which lend themselves to this nylon rhythm. These are NylGit44 and Recuerdo.

See you on your compositions and thank you again for your visit.

Beautiful and inspiring piece. Reminds me of a drive through the Italian countryside.

Smooth and seamless arrangement and production.

I totally agree that this is very cinematic!

Everything about this is spot on and that nylon guitar lead fit like a glove. Super mix also.

FYI - I am taking notes so I can improve my instrumentals.

Dero13,
Pretty track. Listens very well. Larger bells are very effective for accents. The only thing which sticks out in my opinion is a bit overuse of bar chimes, but that is just a matter of taste. Nice one! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Second ambient song I listened to this evening on this forum. Very nice. Relaxing. The imagination can travel in this type of music.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
