Hi there,

I am a BIAB user from Germany and this is my first post here. It's a christmas song reflecting about feelings of loneliness during Corona lockdown. Hope you like the song and if so, pls also spend me a like or comment on youtube smile Thanks a lot

https://youtu.be/kSXXoncI3g4

All playback instruments and backing vocals come from BIAB. I added some bells, additional drums and pad sounds and, of course, the lead vocal. Looking forward to your comments smile

This is really good. Very pro sounding.

Excellent use of BIAB. A well-written song. Beautiful vocal.

And a good mix. Nice video, too. The sax at the end was a nice touch...

Welcome to the Showcase.

Yes, this is beautiful in spite of the sadness. It gives a wonderful sense of hope. Love it. So well done and such a good write. Really cool use of the BGVs BiaB offers.

oops, the reply button does not do what I expected. I guess I have to use the quote button to have my reply attached to the original comment?

Thanks a lot for listening and your praise, am very happy you like it. Good that you mentioned the sax...it is also from BIAB, of course, and originally I had a sax intro and solo in the middle which I later replaced with the bell melody to provide a little bit more of a Christmas vibe. But in the coda it fits perfectly.

What a beautiful vocal. I just love the tone of your voice. Lovely song and perfect timing. With the covid problems it is very relatable . Welcome to the forum.

Cool, that never entered my mind. Thanks for this connotation. Vocals are really great, agreed. I hired a vocalist for that.

Thanks for the praise. Really appreciate it. I will tell Pauline who sang it for me. I am only the composer and producer smile If you can please write your comment on youtube so Pauline can see it, too.

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."
