This is a concept song. An experiment with a RealDrums track and the RealDrums Chart. I took the drums chart and edited the midi files with a pattern editor. The two tracks started out identical and this was the difference after editing. I applied a drum patch from Studio One to the new midi file..

I also added a guitar melody and slide track.

An interesting hybrid Scott...your playing shines through but the tweaked drums are consistently interesting too.

Nicely done, Scott! I like all the various sections, really helps add interest to the piece. Mix mix too, good headphone listen.

Well done, enjoyed!

Really cool atmosphere, nice Celtic mood, especially the fiddle and dulcimer give it an exciting vibe. Very good work with the drums. And the guitar playing is really beautiful, I wish there was a ScottC RealTrack, I would really need one in my next project smile

Scott,

Drums sound good.

Lovely guitar work. Clean, melodic. Well played.

Good mix. Stops are well done and add just the right pause at the right places. Cool ending.

Enjoyed the listen.

Thanks for the comment on the drums. Have been spending allot of time with the midi files. Starting to understand what these files are all about. Glad you liked the song.

Scott,

This has a cool and unique sound going on! I love all the different textures happening that keep changing as the tune progresses! Nice guitar! Thanks, Torrey

Scott...you are a player...this one is very unique...it's not as melodic as some of your other works...like Torrey said very textured and interesting to listen to...your guitar voicings are always appropriate for the piece you are presenting...WELL done!

I don't understand all the production stuff you did with the drums but I understand good electric guitar playing - and your work is coming through loud and clear. Very melodic. The Band is good too. They seem to mix up rhythms and beats and your playing blends in nicely. Good mix. I like it.

Thanks TM fir checking out the song. Glad you liked the song.

Thanks Ray for checking out the song. It is difficult keeping an instrumental interesting over 60 bars. Glad you liked it.

Hi, Scott.

There's a lot going on here - a bit like traveling through a dense music woods.

I'm a simple-minded melody guy, so I got lost in the weeds a couple times. But it was a nice trip. smile

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

Your experiment worked very well Scott. Your guitar and the drums are excellent.

This has a very cinematic feel and we think it would be a good tune for the sync libraries.

The whole band sounds great. It's mesmerizing (in a good way) and one can track along with the nice changes.

Well done!

Scott, your guitar mastery really shines on this one. The Celtic feel and mix are spot on. Super tone on that axe!

I can see this one in a movie.

Great instrumental - two thumbs up.

Thanks Dave I focused more on the production than my actual playing on this one. Was trying some new setups I have discovered on the Internet. Glad you liked the song.

A really nice guitar instrumental.

Drums sound good and the guitar parts were soothing and well played.

Good song.

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.

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."
