Hi Ghostgum,

Pleasant composition. I like the rhythm and the sequence of chords. The lead guitar well played and the appearance of the harmonica has all its charm. Well done

Kindly regard

That is a nice blend of RT's and your performances.

Sounds like a group of folks who've been sitting in together for a while.

Great playing and we much liked the mix. Acoustic mixes can be a challenge ... this is a good one!

Outstanding!

One of the best instrumentals on the forums.

Excellently played on all instruments. Super backing tracks.

This could have been the theme song of one of those spaghetti westerns!

Thanks for your comments, Mario. There's something about these BIAB tracks that is inspirational. It make the process of creating melodies, counter-melodies, harmonies and incidental phrases so much easier than simply using midi.

What they said!

Nice melody, excellent playing, interesting arrangement.

Good work on the guitars and harmonica as well.

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

PG Music News
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."
