Patience, what is really needed in today's world.

BiaB style - Oreg Slow - Slow New Age World-B
Tempo = 40 BPM - This is an ambient song

I deleted the drums.
Bass - Ample Bass - upright bass
Piano - Kontakt - Air Vox Stardust multi - FX - Raum reverb. Note that both of these tracks are straight from BiaB with no modifications.

I am playing the lead via my MIDI guitar controller - Kontakt = Triple Phased Halo Octave Multi

And the strings via my MIDI keyboard controller - Kontakt - Retro Strings - FX - Raum reverb

As always I am open for constructive comments.

Wow Mario. I love this kind of music. Makes you want to stop everything close your eyes and let all thoughts of everything but the excellent sounds floating around the room. Very well done

Mystically engaging.

Soothing, yet compelling music in troubled times.

Nice work.

Hi Mario,

You've done it again.

This is a very nice cinematic experience. As with all your works, I sat here with my eyes closed and I just let my mind flow along with the music. From travelling in space to sailing oceans to drifting in ones deepest thoughts to watching a sunrise, this music took me to all those places and more. The more I listened, the more I realised that to hear your music is to experience it.

Really well done.
Noel

Oh my God, Mario. Just kidding. I don't have my own God, but, man, you are one mystically magical man. Patience. Great title. I tried breathing this slowly, and wow. This is so perfect for many many moods.

Very well done - amazing song here, love how calming and ethereal it is. Almost makes you feel like you're floating in space. I can imagine this sounding unreal in as part of a movie soundtrack, it has a cinematic vibe to it. Also reminds of some older Aphex Twin work, named Selected Ambient Works Pt. 2.

Contender for favourite I've heard you do - thanks for sharing smile

Mario,

You are the BIAB new-age King.

I'll say it again - you could sell CDs of this. Really well done.

A beautiful, relaxing listen.

Really creative, interior journey. I've always found it difficult working in very slow tempo's like this--can't seem to "hear" complete musical thoughts that get stretched out for so long. So I'm quite impressed with this track! I don't understand all the instrumentation settings, but it came out great! Thanks Mario!

Ethereal, atmospheric, ambient. heavenly, unearthly, celestial - OK, I may have looked up a thesauraus grin
This is terrific Mario - the textures, the instruments, the arrangement. It's a soundtrack waiting for a movie (or a space walk, or an episode of Fargo etc.).
You've inspired me to have a go at an ambient piece sometime soon.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Mike

Thanx for listening and those great comments. I have been called many names but "mystically magical man" was never one of them. I like that one!

Thanx again.

Thanx so much Deryk. BiaB is such a versatile piece of software that it makes it very easy to compose in virtually any genre.

Thanx Floyd for these very nice comments. New age and ambient are two genres that I really enjoy playing. I'm glad that you liked this one.

Thank you for listening and commenting. I'm sure that you could produce something similar to this if you tried. I include the instrumentation date for those whom might want to venture into the MIDI side of BiaB, the side that is often overlooked.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
