As if a cat needs a lullabye to fall asleep. (Couldn't resist! wink )

I like this! smile

Years ago, I went to a memorial service for a co-worker. One of his sons played the vibraphone, and gave us an excellent performance. Thanks for reminding me of that!

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

I have been listening to your track with the Synth V several times... and it made me think a lot... will eventually get to write some comments about it...

Hi Will,

As owner of three cats I know cats just think that everyone is in their service.
But as a listener to your song I can say I enjoyed it.
Even more than I expected, because I like Jazz, but not too much.
The instruments souned al so bright, like you are sitting next to them. I like that.
And one of my cats just decided to step on my keyboards while I was recording...

Have a nice day, Will,
Hans

Love the vibe and the vibes!

It's most cool to hear the vibraphone. We learned to like that instrument
from listening to Lionel with Benny.

As a credit to both your creativity and BiaB we feel that it would be difficult if not
impossible for one to realize that this is not a live sextet.

Excellent!

Hi Janice & Bud,

Thanks a lot for listening and also for your heart-warming comments. It means a lot to me that you like what I am doing - especially because I know the high quality tracks you deliver yourself!

Take care,

Esp liked the passages with only vibe and bass--really creative idea.
Would love to see your chord chart--very interesting path for this track.
This is another great example of using what is in the RT's at an expert level to generate a complete, wholistic track.
Excellent work.

Sounds great but also sounds more like something a cat would chase than a lullaby..the bright ringing panned sounds would, if sto light, have a cat bounding about.

Not a cat lover, allergies, but even this dog lover loved this one.

I really like the sound of vibes.

Your mastery of RTs really shines putting them in the lead for the entire song and having the rest of the band blend in perfectly. I also liked your chord progression.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Will,

As all others say, the vibraphone is really great.
Thank you for showing us your chord chart.
The chord progression you wrote is basically composed of Im, IVm, and V7, but the ingenuity is very clever.
It's the cool jazz!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Yes ... what Janice & Bud said. The one difference between them and me is always loved to hear Lionel Hampton do Jazz improv with Steve Allen. But I fully agree with their review. That was a very, very nice listen. Great job, especially with the vibes!!!

Best to you ...

Alan

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."
