Very nice! I hear the Highland influence. I don't have anything knowledgeable to say, and this isn't the style I usually listen to, but I liked this tune and the mix of instruments contributing. Thanks.

Hi Buttrey, thanks a lot for your nice comment and for listening - I'm very glad you liked my Highland Ballad and you could hear the Scottish influence! I think it's good for our 'music ears' to listen to many kinds of music - helps to widen our horizon and promotes new ideas!

All the best, Carl

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

Hi Deryk, very glad you like my Highland Ballad and you can hear the Scottish influence - grateful for your comments, thanks a lot for taking a listen!!

Wish I could post my "Hymn" tune here too (same location and very peaceful) - but it wasn't made using BB so I guess I may have just broken a rule by mentioning it??
Apologies if I did!!

Best regards, Carl

Lovely and serene. The piece has a calming effect. I especially like your nylon guitar part.

Hi Ezekiel - many thanks for your nice comments, really pleased you like my Highland Ballad!

If you like serene and calming nylon guitar, you may like my "Hymn" on Soundcloud - but is was not recorded using BB!

Thanks a lot for listening - best regards, Carl

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

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.
