This was interesting - Knopfler-esqe riffs plus synths and organs.

That's a combination I really haven't heard before.

Cool!

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

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.

Cool guitar riffs. I was unsure about the synths but they were very cool as well. Super playing...

Thanks, Scott. I was unsure about the synths too. That's why there are now three versions of the tune

the latest one is here:

Hello Brian
Very good song
Have also experimented a few times with the 511 solo guitar
But I have never been able to get as good results as you did
Did you work with the MultiRiff function ?
Well done
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Andi,

Thanks for your comments,

No, I have never investigated "Multi-Riff" and have no clue what to do with it. I just loaded DIR-FSL.STY and let the solo guitar do its thing. I assume the results are due the chord progressions chosen.

Cheers,

Ghostgum

An enjoyable piece. Driven, lots of energy.

Those Dire tracks are so distinctively Dire-ish. They really make it sound like you have Mark Knopfler playing for you.

Nicely mixed.

Hi Ghostgum.

This is such a great listen.

I'm sitting here with my headphones on and really enjoying where you're taking me.

I love the instruments, the mix, the arrangement and the production.

You've done a great job!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks, Noel. Coming from someone with your expertise, that in not faint praise. smile

You were listening to version 1. You might prefer version 3:

The Captain said it best, " Dire Straits meets Mannheim Steamroller"

This so good in so many ways

Great mix and choice of instruments

Loved it

Hello Ghostgum,

Upbeat and tasty!
The tone of the solo guitar is completely different, but the overall sound reminds me of The Ventures.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

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!

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."
