Hello biab members,

Today I am submitting a soundtrack with a 180 bpm. The main instruments on the melody track are the marimba, the vibraphone and the celeste which plays the same melody and which gives this particular sound. The piano reinforces the sound in a few passages. I imported the midi file of the melody into Biab to find the chords he suggested to me.
For the accompaniment, few realtracks with this tempo were suitable.
I therefore used the midi strings files from biab that I adjusted in my daw by replacing the sound with vst trumpets, brass and strings. For the drum, I took the midi file from a biab loop drum and assigned it a vst from “Eastwest Mor”. For the bass I started with a biab midi file that I improved according to the melody (vst “ Mor”). I finally added some Bells and trills (intro and outro) for the coloring of the song. It's an ambient soundtrack whose title is "happy days".

If you have the time to comment, thank you in advance for your advices.

Hello Derochette ...

I always enjoy your music. This is a big production with a very cinematic theme. A very, very nice use of the various tracks to create such a pleasant listen! The mix is perfect.

That was a fun and very enjoyable listen. Excellent! Take care and be safe. Merry Christmas and Happy new Year.

Alan

Nice song. It could be a soundtrack for a movie.

Beautiful composition and perfect for the season.

As others have and will mention it is very cinematic in nature and it
is easy to imagine the tune in a film.

Well produced and it sounds excellent on our monitors.

Enjoyed it!

Yep.... I agree. I could hear this playing as underscore in a film.

Nice

This definitely has that film score quality. And it is a quality production from start to finish. A very enjoyable listen with some holiday sounds as was mentioned. Very nicely done, Tom

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."
