Hi all,
Here's a musical trip between blues and tango.
The melody I've composed is played by a Hi-Q Grand Sforzando Piano.

Hi Chris ..

I really like this - very much! The chosen instruments work very well together. The fills between the piano's parts are particularly good They complement the piano quite nicely without taking the focus off of it - very good mixing! The words that come to mind for me are tasteful and quietly exciting.

Alan

I didn't think I would like single note playing on a piano but this worked quite well for me, especially blended in with your other instrument choices. I loved when the solo electric guitar chimed in. Very pleasant piece, good work.

Thanks Om, Alan, TuneMonger and Mark.
I think tango is a kind of argentine blues.

Nice one. You did a great job of intermixing the piano and guitars. I thought it was great. Very entertaining.

Excellent job. Piano melody sounds wonderful, background texture perfect as its foil. Electric guitar great. Accordion gives it authenticity, somehow. No criticisms :-)

So that's a melody you wrote using midi? Very creative. Nicely done.

Took me to a peaceful European sidewalk cafe where tension or possibly even danger arises. Or perhaps some boisterous foreigners show up.

Wow, that's such a cool combination of genres, Chris. Wonderful idea and so well executed. Man, cool bluesy changes with a tango feel. Sometimes I get to jam with a multi-instrumentalist that will just turn and say something like, "I wanna hold your hand in reggae." Fun stuff, Chris.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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."
