Rocking Auld Syne - My rocking New Years greet to you all. Based on a very old midi file I found years ago, just like last year, but now it's rock instead of Big Band. I then "messed" with it quite a bit to try make it sound the best I could. In order to make it 'eligible' for sharing here, I threw a couple of PG's VSTi (Bright Piano & Electric Bass) in the mix - Enjoy!

p.s. Now crank this beast up and let's rock this crappy piece of a year into oblivion!! cool


Thank goodness words aren't knives.

I can't in all honesty take any credit for the conceptual work in this one (nor the performance, for that matter), for as it says in my outline, that was all already there in the midi file. All I did was apply instrument sources and remix accordingly for recording, but I'm glad you liked the outcome nevertheless.

Well, it's hardly going to be worse than the year that just left, you know. But I appreciate the sentiment, thank you, and of course likewise to you both.

I've been very inactive in terms of music this whole year (and a fair bit beyond), but fortunately this piece is fitting every year so I can present it to you all over again! - Clever me, eh wink

Yes, thanks. I suppose you could say I've become quite disillusioned with anything creative as a result of the rough year that just passed... or something smirk

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
