In need of a reminder of warm beaches, sunshine, - freedom?
A duet between my friend Kay Das, the celebrated steel guitar player from California who stayed with us a short while, and yours truly. Recorded in the magnificence of my enormous Recording Studio - see video. Lol.
BT created one night, literally on the spot, by me in Band In A Box.
Any duff chords, blame Kay. The arguments we had over 'its F", "oh no its not not, its Fmaj7" and so on. Great, fun times!

Happy New Year
Ian & Kay

Extremely enjoyable guys. Yes, this immediately transports us to an island paradise.

Excellent. I'm looking for a Margarita grin

Wonderfully done! My wife and I honeymooned in Tahiti. I'd like to know your guitar setup...amp, pedals, etc?

Hi Trev, Jeff and Frank and thank you for your kind comments - they are much appreciated.
Frank - welcome to the K.I.S.S Studios. I can't comment on Kays steel guitar, how he plays on so beautifully is a total mystery to me.
But this guitar is a bespoke Stratocaster made to my spec in 2007. - Alder body, BI maple neck, Kinman FV pickups, genuine 1960s Strat bridge etc. It runs into Boss CS3 set lightly to an Alesis Q2 echo unit then via JOYO ACTONE Vox amp emulator to a Cakewalk Guitar Pro2 DAW (from 2004) in Win XP PC. Yes - XP.
Nothing complicated or even new apart from the Strat - and even she's 14 years old this year.
Bests
Ian

Absolutely gorgeous- I loved this. Definitely transported me to a nicer place ... for a moment, then looked outside to the usual pouring rain (for this time of year where we are).

Thanks for sharing smile

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."
