Hi all,

Just publish my latest tune. Nite at the club!
I used a lot of stuff.
Part A used a loop from Splice that I modified and deepened with other drums I created. I also implemented staccato synth/strings with the plugin Scaler (part A).

Part B uses Ez drummer and BIAB for
- the bass
- the electric piano chords and solo
- the sax solos

I play the guitars

Mixed in reaper, Ozone 9, THU full plugin for my guitar sounds (2 sounds used).

Then created the clip.

This one took me a lot of work! Hope you will enjoy it!

Well, all your work was worth it because the result was excellent. TBH I can get bored with instrumentals but this held my interest throughout. Great work!

Hey Angelo ...

Man, what a treat! All that work you applied turned into one big heap of fun and entertainment. Your cuts are always very professional-sounding and have tons of commercial appeal. Loved that bass and hi-hat intro ... really cool! And the horn stabs are the perfect accent to everything else.

The variations are nicely blended and are mutually complimentary. Translation: Fantastic song that I truly enjoyed!

Look forward to more excellent cuts from you. Hope 2021 treats you in a most excellent way.

Alan

Man, that is one great display of the power of BiaB when used with strong user performance like your guitars.

Excellent mix and a terrific video.

No doubt about the amount of planning and effort that went into this and we most enjoyed the outcome!

VERY modern jazz funk club of the 70s. I almost didn't listen though - the "title music" at the beginning is anodyne and almost turned me away. It might be better suited to the end.
The kick drum sounds wrong in the quieter passage...all click and no thud.
There're some lovely parts in this one but there're not enough of them repeated to ctreate some sense of SONG as opposed to jam.
Nice mix.

Hi Angelo,

I'm a sucker for great bass riffs and this one really does the job, wow.... A very fine and marvellously produced piece of funky stuff - a fantastic start into 2021. Thanks a lot and stay safe,

Stefan

Angelo,

Excellent track.

Nice guitars. Super cool bass (wish you had noted what BIAB track that was...).
Sax sound good. The brass stabs are cool (did you say where they came from?).

Good mix.

A very enjoyable listen.

Well constructed piece and some excellent guitar playing.

The video was a good accompaniment for the song.

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."
