Hi my Biab friends,

I submit today a composition imploring human wisdom for a better life without violence on earth. It's a dream but if all the countries of our world could achieve it, it would be wonderful that people like you and me and our children could respect each other, love each other and live in peace. This composition is a call to the nations that have the power to declare this desire for peace with the blue lotus which represents wisdom. Thank you all for reading me despite the tragedies that are shaking our beautiful blue planet. Friendships to all.

Work method used: sequence of musical chords and search for melodic lines in the vst biab with the midi files of different solos realtracks. Use and choice of vst in Eastwest Silk which includes many different instruments to give Asian sounds

if you want to listen to this humble composition linked to the hope of a better life here is the link :

Hi bloc-head,

Thank you for your nice comment. But I think to withdraw this composition given the current geopolitical situation. Even if the accompanying message is intended to be peaceful, the instrumental sounds can be misunderstood in this time of global crisis. But the musicians of our beautiful planet and our beautiful forum Biab will remain united to inspire people to peace.

This is lovely. It has a touch of Asian and Celtic music, it seems to me. Nice. Good sentiments behind the song. Good one.

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

Hi Derochette,

Why do you want to withdraw this beautiful, Easternlike song, as you wrote to bloc-head in response?
That would be a great pity. The nasty ones on this earth would like that. Would you like THAT?

It has a lot from Japanese songs. I guess that's why you called it like you did. They like the Lotus a lot.
And it could also help dim the Chinese autocrats… maybe.

I agree.

What a beautiful masterpiece.

Lovely blend of many instruments.

You are one talented individual.

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Misinterpretation would be conscious, deliberate and vexatious.
As mentioned the combination of South east Asian & Celtic sounds, melodies and the general arrangement are a very sweet carriage for your hope.


Cheers

Derochette,
Pretty and meditational tune. Listens very well. Good mix. Nothing I can think of I would change. A good attempt to convey message of peace with your music. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Hi jptjptjpt,

It's true that I can't help leaving a Celtic touch despite the musical instruments used in this instrumental track. Thank you.

Hi Birchwood,

You're right, any message towards tolerance and respect for others is like a mosquito finding itself in a room where an autocrat sleeps and prevents him from sleeping. Thank you for this kind comment.

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."
