Hi camog,

It is a composition very vaporous and light in its melody and its sounds. It is very pleasant to listen to and well done. The sound of the guitar is really good. Well done.

Kindly regard

Really really lovely Carl. What's not to love about it ? Very simple but such a nice uncluttered backing

Hiya Graham, thanks a lot for your nice comment - glad you like it, yes do play it 'you know where' on Saturday!!
Had the accordion plugin hidden away for ages on my hard drive - fun to reawaken the cassotto sound (as far as you can in software). Not easy to play with a volume pedal in place of the bellows - had to fiddle around a lot with volume envelopes on individual accordion notes in Logic Pro X to get a sense of realism, but hope it came out ok!!

Cheers Graham, C

Carl,

A pretty instrumental—very clean and crisp, light on the ear. Well done!

All my best,

As Graham said, a lovely bit of music.

Is that an actual nylon string you're playing lead on? Nicely miked and played! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi David, thanks very much for your nice comment - yes it's a Takamine Hirade TH90 which I've had for years!

Recorded in a tiny bedroom with a Microtech Gefell M300 condenser mic pointing roughly to the 12th fret of the neck - I use GoldenAge Pre 73 preamps and Comp 54 compressors, and Liquidsonics Cinematic Rooms Prof & Seventh Heaven Prof reverbs! Mastered with IK Multimedia T-Racks Max!

Thanks for listening David, best regards - Carl

Thanks for the information!

I know that guitars can be a bear to record, so color me impressed! Lack of skill and laziness make me fall back to Nylon String VSTis. Clearly this isn't a problem for you! laugh

I've heard a lot of good things about the Seventh Heaven reverb, especially from people who do orchestral mock-ups. Cinematic Rooms is out of my price range, though.

Thanks David - I have just replied to your comment on my "Adorned" tune, hope that answers any questions?

My setup is really quite modest (compared to many) - decent basic equipment is best, after that it's down to how you use it!!

I'm no tech head - but if I can help, then feel free to ask!!

Best, Carl

Lovely, carl. One of those tunes that makes you close your eyes, sway your head, and every once in awhile raise your eyebrows with feeling. The accordion was a great touch. I really like the way add to the mix in very subtle ways. You make tunes that can listened to over and over. Over.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Carl...what a great piece of music...this is the kind of stuff you like to relax to and unwind...what a great soundtrack this would make for the right scene in a movie...for some strange reason I envision some panoramic western and a rider at sunset...probably not your vision for this piece...oh well...anyway I thought it was very good...great use of BiaB tracks to compliment your style...Dan

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.

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."
