Hi, all this is the first in a while. (As we say down this way, I've been a bit crook)
I have been playing around with some loops and wrote a BB song around them.
Other than the loops, its all Band in a Box.
Sounds ok to me. You be the judge.

I can feel it

File:I Can Feel It.SGU
Key=Fm , Tempo 100, Length (m:s)=4:28

*******************
A British psychedelic soul RealStyle that features a three-part background arrangement of vocal oohs and a syncopated funk electric guitar that plays a rhythm part. The vocal oohs stick to held chords while the guitar strums staccato chords. Electric bass plays with accents on beats 1, 3, and 4. A "synth layer" piano combines synthesizer with acoustic piano and plays a classic soul comping part. FunkHalfNotePulse RealDrums play a funk drum beat in their only variation, which has heavy accents on the beat.

This song is in the key of Fm and uses a mix pop, slash, and dominant chords that occur every 2 to 8 beats

Rob,
This has a good funky feel with nice use of the vocal loops.
Thumbs up from me ( the opposite of "crook").

Well done Rob,
The intro was definitely sneaky...I thought it was leading to something more Gilbert O'Sullivan.


Cheers

Rob,
I guess those are vocal "loops" and not you singing? smile
Sounds modern and airy. Good arrangement and clear mix. Easy listen.
Very different from music I have heard by you. Thank you for sharing.

This is completely different from the other songs I heard from you through the years.

Quite a surprise! But I have to say, this is done extremely well.

Yes, we could feel the joy!

We were surprised after the intro when the vocal was not yours but it was a very nice surprise.

Very cool Rob!

Hope you are feeling better.

PS What does your Elvis side think of this? smile

Rob,

Man that is a slick sounding track! Love that 70's Pop/Soul vibe going on! Yes, it's very different from other material I've heard from you, but it's still great!

Thanks, T

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."
