Hi Folks.
This is a short one.  Before coming to BIAB world I utilized MIDI for most of my tunes, so this was a good exercise. Initial arrangement is still done on BIAB including a couple of RTs. All comments are welcomed and thank you for giving this time.

Raging riots, liquid diets,

New forms of art
No, no, no I don't need your invitation

Now that's my kind of groove, really 80s, really Billy Idol ;-)

Highly enjoyable!

What a cool groove Misha. Super vocal and just loved the drums. Loved how they bounced around the monitors. Really cool production, mix and master. Well done

Funky groove. Great stereo sound from my headphones - especially the drums.

Fun vocals, as always.

Very cool! smile

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

Misha,

Now that's one funky vibe you have going on with this one . . . the mix sounds great to me--crisp and vibrant. Love your BGVs on this; perfectly layered in. Cool stuff!

All my best to you,

Deej

Man, you are one of my favorite lyricist, Misha. I could've quoted the whole song, but the opening lines grab the listeners so well, and the whole story needs to be repeated several times and each one the meaning can be somewhat different. Brilliant. Your vocals are so expressive and the mix is always filled with so many interesting twists and additions. Everything in there begs for replay. Music moguls like that.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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.

You and RKC are the poets of the forum, always delivering great, thought-provoking lyrics. Yeah, this was short but it made its point. Well done.

Misha what a super groove you have going on here.

Outstanding stereo panning!

Super vocal and lyrics.

Great band - outstanding rhythm section - brilliant work!

Loved it.

Hi Misha

My only quibble is that it is, as you say, a short one. Was enjoying it very much and would have been quite happy for it to keep going. Great groove and mix. While I don't normally like to play favourites, I'm compelled to say you're my favourite lyricist on this forum. Your wordplay is never less than inventive and frequently surprising. Great work.

Regards,
Leon

Ray said it well: “reggae dystopia.” smile

Your description of reality tv is downright elegant, Misha.

All is super: lyric, band, vocals, mix. It has a really big sound but with sparse instrumentation.
How you do that is remarkable.

And also remarkable is how you can write lyrics for which there is NEVER. A. SINGLE. WEAK. LINE!

Way cool!

Misha,
I could dance to that... because the lyrics feed the mind as the feet bounce.
Very skilful production and, of course, the Rustyspoon vibe to captivate.
Cool, very cool!

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."
