A fun country song and video for you all!!

BIAB's fabulous country music tools make it easy. We usually use Real Drums and Real Bass but for country, we use the hard-to-get Steel and Fiddle Real Tracks instead of trying to find studio musicians.

Here's the song link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4NbXWW06hY

Check out our YouTube channel: SongCrafters Corner for more original songs. Please subscribe and hit the notification bell to listen to new songs when they drop.
Thank You

Nice story-song, and very pleasant use of the BIAB components. Liked how you handled the ending. Overall production sounded very professional.

For what it’s worth listener feedback...I’d drop out some of the background sound texture during the verse and resume it at the chorus, just as you added the backup vocal harmony.

Nicely done, SongCrafter!! Welcome to the Forum. Gotta go. Someone's asking me Pass The Tequila. Are you using BiaB in all of your songs?

A pleasant listen. An easy Country feel.

Good use of BIAB.

Welcome to the forum and the Showcase.

(There was a short-lived magazine out of Nashville in the early 90's called SongCrafter. Your font/logo look similar. So thanks for the memories!!)

Thanks Babu!

We've been using BIAB since the MIDI days and have been watching and upgrading, since then.

Generally speaking, drum and bass lines are used then other tracks are filled in to completion.

A big hello to you also Floyd!!

The SongCrafters Corner idea was hatched as the name of our YouTube channel just launched a few weeks ago. We'll see how things work out.

This is a very nice, easy-to-listen-to country song. I tend to agree with Tano about the background fills on the verses. Nonetheless, it didn't take away from the listening pleasure. A really nice song and nicely presented. That was a great listen!

Welcome to the User's Forum! Keep the great music coming ...

Alan

Country music at its finest! Your vocal, backing tracks, and mix are excellent. The lyrics were also very good.

This should be played on every country station.

Well done y'all ... both the audio and video production.

Enjoyed it. Harkens back to the, for us, good country days.

Thanks you two!!

I never developed a taste for the "new country", so it's tough to write that stuff for me. We've got some more "old country" like from the 80's and 90's that will drop in the next few weeks.

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...

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."
