First song for 2022.

After another year for Covid and lock downs my mind searches for memories of the past when getting together and having fun was just an everyday thing.

So lets dive into 2022.

And Away We Go

Decided to duet with my synth. Mom would not let me drag a B3 and Leslie into the house so had to make do.

Band:
873 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm ModernRnBRockFunkyOffbeat Ev 065
3331 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzyPop16thsMark Ev16 080
Organ - N A 2692 Organ, Rhythm ModernPopSlowMike Ev 075
Bass - N A 1398 Bass, Electric, Soul70sA-B Ev16 100
Drums - RealDrums=SouthernPop16RnB^07-a Hat, Sidestick, b Ride, Snare2
Used some the Real Charts from the DAW plugin to add some different midi effects to the drums, bass and keyboard Real Tracks.

Guitar Lead: Gretsch - Double Mic'd
Guitar Slide: Les Paul - Double Mic'd
Synth: Atom SQ and Presence
Organ: Arturia Minilab and Analog Lab V
Presonus Rotor Plugin.
Mixed and Mastered in Studio One 5

Nice modern take on 60s instrumentals.

That synth part is other worldly---quite a pleasing contrast to the preceding lower register guitar part (which I loved).

I enjoyed the voice-ish synth (not to be confused with a synth voice).

Scott...great way to start the new year...I'm just guessing at how much technical work you must have put into this and I'm amazed...very ethereal and very "theremin-esque" (I made that word up) with the synth voices...your guitar work is always stellar and worth the wait...so for 2022 "Away We Go" right?

Hi, Scott.

Enjoyed the sounds. As firesong noted, bits of it were "theremin-esque".

Mellow tune. smile

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

Hey Man, You're a talented guy. Listened to a couple of your songs and I'm impressed with your singing voice! I could only wish to have a voice like yours. The recordings were super clean too. We use the same DAW, Studio One 5. Pretty sold on Presonus and I love BIAB! Thanks, I enjoyed listening!

Yes "theremin-esque" is the perfect way to describe the synth part. Super chops on that axe! Excellent song.

The voice-like synth work reminds me of Vangelis soundtrack for Blade Runner (Seems like a lot of synth work reminds me of Blade Runner). Guitar had its own mystical coolness as well. Nice job!

Scott,

A really nice piece. Good use of the synth.

Nice tone, as usual. So "clean", so precise...

Good mix. Good listen. Beautiful.

Thanks for checking out the song. I remember when the Beach Boys used the Theremin. Glad you like the song.

Thanks David It was your vox song that got me researching the midi key patches. Got me playing the keyboards again. Thanks for that. Glad you liked the song..

Hi Scott,

You told me you were busy making a song, so I didn't expect it was already done.
You made a very nice song and I was surprised about those beautiful vocals halfway!
Now I understand why you didn't ask me to do the singing in your song...

Hands down this is a very strong composition and guitar play, Scott.
I enjoyed it!

Hans

Something nice and different from you even the guitar sound.

Impressive keyboard work and a nice overall vibe.

Hope 2022 is kind to us all.

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?

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."
