Very pretty song Mario. I love this kind of music. Soul soothing. I think this was a very good mix. Loved the different instruments you chose. Well done

Hi Mario,

This is a very beautiful track and I think it quite well mixed and produced (although I am not an expert so others might have a different opinion).

Thanks for sharing,
Will

Mario,
Peaceful tune. Nice form. I like most of instrument choices except AVP pads? (I think) the aahhs.... It does not sound natural compared to other, more acoustic instruments. Also, in a few places strings start too brutal, I would ride them into the mix a little smoother. Otherwise, mix is very crisp. Those cool K.Hunter instruments sound very good. Fun playing. Crazy things you do with that wind controller. I tried going that route, but found fingering complicated. I hope one day they will make a simple recorder or melodica type instrument for lazy people like me. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

P.S. Really cool waveform of the tune.

Mario,

Angelic is such a good word to describe the mood and ambiance you’ve created with this lovely tune. Such a sweet production, everything fitting in together so well. Heavenly! No suggestions from me on the mix—sounds spot on to my ears.

Best regards to you and yours,

Deej

Thanx Charlie. I'm not sure about that "master touch" comment but I do try. I like the fact that you can do a lot with BiaB and I try to take it in unexpected directions.

Misha, thanx so much for the comments. I agree about the AVP pads. They are old and I have decided to look into some newer ones. I'll take a look at the string sections.

You can record a recorder or melodica type instrument and convert it into MIDI via any monophonic converter. Melodyne is the best and the monophonic version isn't very expensive, $99 USD:

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Melo5Ess--celemony-melodyne-5-essential

It also comes free with a number of DAWs.

IIRC RealBand can convert it also.

Beautiful melody and chording. The instrumentation is mellow and the arrangement has no distracting elements. The angels are surely dancing this in a heavenly ballroom and divine rays are filling the air.

Nice work mario.
I don't do midi and only occasionally do orchestral parts.
I do watch/listen & learn form this chap though:

I don't take his courses - I just filter through & watch the stuff that I like which seems to relate to your suggestion request...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
