Big fan of Django here...which style did you use for this?
Can you provide a lyric translation? I'd love to understand the story.
BIAB has really good RT's for gypsy jazz, and you've used them well.
I've found that some of the solo RT's have great phrases, but they jump around alot and at times do not seem to "link" well with each other---but I'll bet that Django wouldn't have a problem with that!
Really enjoyed it!

I'm a big Django fan ... love his style. You did a terrific job recreating that late 30s/early40s sound he was so noted for. Excellent!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

I can't speak to the lyrics, but I thought everything else was excellent.

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

Christian,

Terrific gypsy jazz tune. I’ve got a buddy who loves this kind of stuff—he’ll really enjoy hearing it. (The local theater by me does a gypsy jazz fest each year and my friend attends every minute of the three day event--he's a huge fan of the genre.)

Great work laying down the music. It sounds like I’m listening to a live band. Really well put together. And my, my: that accordion followed by the guitar solo. Excellent work!

Best regards,

Deej

Great Gypsy Jazz. A friend of ours back in the day played outstanding fiddle Gypsy Jazz and we came to love the genre.
This is a great example of it. Those RT's worked extremely well.

Outstanding,

J&B

Really nice - great sound, and composition.

Enjoyed the vocal and the song, which had excellent instrumental choices.

Hello Chris37,

Composition very well done. Each instrument is in its place, with a well-written poetry. It's all good.

Kindly regard

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
