Moving

Don't ask about the title. It just came to me when I started so I kept it.

BiaB style = MICHEL -1 - Slow Pop Orchestra
Tempo = 74 BPM

I deleted the piano, bass, and drum tracks.
Piano - a track from ToonTrack's EZ Keys - piano = Electric Grand - Chorus Grand
Drums - MIDI loops from GroovMonkee - drums = Steven Slate's SSD-5
I doubled the BiaB guitar track with both tracks modified to fit the piano track:
Guitar - Kontakt - Kirt Hunter Virtuoso strings
Guitar - Kontakt - Amadeus full string ensemble.
Strings - Kontakt - Solid State Symphony
Me - Kontakt - Passion Flute - via my wind controller

FX - Waves reverb on all but the kick drum
Waves CLA drums on all of the drum tracks.

Ps - I had a problem with my mixer, thus I haven't been around this forum as much as I have in the past. I hope to catch up on listening soon.

Mario,

That is some nice stuff! Love that elegant, rich strings sound!
I understand about getting a title and building everything around it, because I've done it many times!

Everything sounds wonderful in this! All the backing strongly supports that pretty melody line!

Thanks, Torrey

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

Very cool mood, great work with the strings - they sound very beautiful. The piano and drums support the theme very well. Great chording. Would be a good movie theme, the title and the moving mood reminds me of the Chariots of Fire.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

The words that came to mind for us were "sophisticated" and "classy."

Heck we could throw in lovely and elegant also.

As always we enjoyed the product and reading the way you performed it all.

Excellent,

J&B

Lovely piece Mario. I am trying to get better with my synths. They got pretty dusty as the guitar got most of my time. Joined Sphere so have access to some very cool loops and samples. Well done.

Mary,
Cool piece, excellent use of synths & playing passion flute. I think drums are a bit distant, otherwise sounds really good. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Lovely track, Mario! One of your best I think.

"Epic" is a good one word summary I think smile

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

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."
