Marty, thanx for listening and those very nice comments.

Thanx for those very kind words. I greatly appreciate them.

The nylon string stands out . It does get a tiny bit strident higher up but, generally, is a lovely sound well captured.
You do amazing things with your controller.
Well done.

You sound comfortable to me, Mario wink

Great groove, and I really like the horn parts via the wind controller.

But my favorite part is the nylon string guitar part, right in the pocket and super tasteful.

Nice!

Howdy Mario....

Well....I like this one and I'd say you are in your comfort zone.
A relaxing, well put together composition which I'd listen to again.
I agree with all other comments. smile

I've threatened to write one in this style too which I many research for my next project.

Well done.

Have a great day....

Thanx Ray. The nylon string guitar is a very cheap one that is starting to have a warped neck. Also there is no truss rod so this one will be in the garbage can in a couple of years, sooner if I replace it.

Dave thanx so much for listening and commenting. Every once in a while I hit a winning guitar part so thanx for that. It means a lot coming from an excellent guitarist like yourself.

Like I said I was a little out of my comfort zone as my wedding band did play a couple of bossa novas, but I had never do one from scratch before. Well I mean from scratch using BiaB ingredients.

Thanx for the nice comments.

Mario,
The nylon guitar stars in your sultry sky here; those horns are sooo smooth too.
You are in complete wind control mode.
Well done!

You are right up there when it comes to creating music that makes one feel good and happy - and that's what it's all about, right? Really, really beautiful track - it takes so much talent and skill to make it sound that easy, and that's exactly what you do. Thank you - I needed this, and you're 100% reliable, every time. Bravo.

Thanx so much James for this wonderful posting. I appreciate these great remarks but to be truthful it ain't easy to do.

I'm glad you liked this.

Nice. It sounds like the music that would have played during the opening credits of a 60s movie.

Mario, you're the boss of the bossa after this one. Nice tune and changes.
Your arrangement and choice of instruments show a good understanding of the genre.
Cheers,
Mike

Thanx Mike, but I'm no boss of the bossa nova. A novice yes, this was my first solo attempt at it, my band played a couple of them, but a boss, no way.

PG Music News
The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
