Hi biab members,

Today I am submitting a composition that is close to my heart. This is a soundtrack dedicated to my sweet dog Shana who is overflowing with love. Every day, she is by my side and shows me a lot of affection.

To make this soundtrack, I always start from Biab, I create the chords; Here I played the piano even though I am not a virtuoso. I then imported via the Biab vst in studio one and I added some harmonic lines. I often use biab strings that I readjust and correct according to the melody. I hope that all those who appreciate animals like me will appreciate this soundtrack which is only a small tribute to our everyday companions.

If you have the time or the inclination please comment, I will appreciate it. Because the opinion of specialist musicians is very important to me.

Here is the link to this soundtrack Shana, my lovely Dog

I also give you the link to my other soundtracks

Dogs are some of the best people I knw!

That's a pretty rich composition.
A nice balance between delicate and powerful but, yet a very uplifting vibe.

Nice!

Hi Derochette.

Being a dedication to your dog: Shana, a nice Irish setter , I would think something a little more intimate and perhaps Celtic,would work better.
However you have produced a very beautiful,cinematic, sweeping piece of music ,suitable adulation to all the K9's of France.

Derochette,

Lovely composition. I like the choral vocals you have highlighting the instrumental in the beginning and end. A very pretty and sweet, and certainly deserving of its muse, Shanna.


All my best to you,

Deej

Hello CaptainMoto,

The Irish setter is an ideal companion, a little crazy, but so affectionate. I'm glad you like this soundtrack. Thank you for your nice comment.

Hello Gary,

You're absolutely right, a more Celtic sound would have worked better for my dog ​​Shana. But when Shana listened to the music she was all excited and I found it suited her personality well. Thank you for your appreciation.

Kindly regard

Hello Deej,

I'm glad you like this song. It is true that I love choirs and I often put them in my soundtracks. I find that it brings a certain human warmth to the music. Thank you for your nice comment.

Wonderful tribute, Derochette. Love how you build the excitement. What a brilliant use of Band in a Box. Virtuoso? When I was a kid I thought the term was a knock, like some who can only play so-so. Virtually so-so. You are a master of composition and performance.

Hi BabuMusic,

Thank you very much for this charming compliment. I love Biab, it's really a tool that makes composition easier. There are a lot of midi files in styles which can be easily extracted and then reworked in other Daws. Thank you again and take good care of yourself.

Kindly regards

Derochette,

A beautiful piece - to my ears, anyway.

I enjoyed the orchestration. The choral voices are a nice touch.

Your piano playing is quite nice.

Good mix.

Lovely in all aspects.

Wonderful use of BiaB to accompany your nice playing.

The soundstage is rich and full on our monitors.

Enjoyed it ... from two folks who love dogs.

Great arrangement--I listened while I was doing some house chores, and I thought it sounded quite cinematic. I especially liked how you brought the intensity down near the end. Your use of orchestral strings and the choral elements was really good. Your dog should be proud of you!

Beautiful piece. Flowing and graceful, and about the midpoint turns majestic. Emotional ending. This composition evokes your dog in my mind.

Hello Tano Musik,

I'm happy that the sound is transmitted well to acoustic speakers because I work with headphones and I do not realize if the mix is ​​correct. Shana joins me in thanking you.

Kindly regards

A lovely piece. it's not for me to interrogate how it relates to the critter but as a piece of music it's lovely.

Really pretty music!! I have always loved Irish Setters......wonderful, smart, sweet dogs! I used to see them around a lot in the 70's and 80's but rarely see them lately. Not sure why. Really enjoyed the tune!! Take care. Greg

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!"

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."
