Fairy Dust

Fairies sometimes leave FairyLand, come into our world, and spread Fairy Dust over us. Of course we can not see the Fairies or the dust but it is there. Sometimes the Fairies flutter rapidly between person to person and sometimes they hover over a person or two. This song tries to replicate that movement.

BiaB style = Very Slow Trance - Like N
Trempo = 58 BPM

I deleted the drums
Bass - Kontakt - Kurt Hunter's Virtuoso Cellos
Guitar - Kontakt - Mark Tree Chimes
Strings - Serenity SE - preset - Expand
Piano - Synthmaster One - AHH Heaven
Chord output - Kontakt - TRZ 22 - panoramic choir

Me via my MIDI keyboard controller - Kontakt - Crystal Flute

Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

A song from a fairy tale movie. Beautiful.
You are really good at creating soundscapes like this!

Mario,

Those little quick "flute" flutters are great. It really fits the theme of the song so well. Once again you have shown that you are a master at creating these ethereal soundscapes! Love it!

Thanks, Torrey

Terrific atmospheric piece, Mario.
The flute is interesting, imaginative.
Good mix.

This is really a work of art. Your mastery of MIDI is amazing. I enjoyed being in fairyland for a few moments.

Another masterful work, this is not just a song, but a place beyond imagination, FairyLand as you call it. Thanks for the four-minute journey there. Flutter and marktree are excellent ways to describe that place, not just flutter but there are other flute melody parts that make this short moment extraordinary. How can I save and re-use all this dust? Creative, original and cinematic.

Very magical, indeed! You must give the elves equal time.

This is ready for an animated feature. Really imaginative. Loved it. Crystal flute is wonderful and carries the production.

Possibly your best effort in the atmospheric genre. The flute felt like the fairy was talking to me in its language. Really cool, enjoyed it a great deal.

Thanx B.D. and Torrey. I really like creating soundscapes so I'm glad that you liked this one. Soundscapes seems to be my strong point in composing.

Thanx so much Floyd. I have always loved the sound of a flute and I'm glad the VSTis flute emulations are this good.

Thanx Charlie. I much prefer working in MIDI than in RTs; nothing against those whom work in RTs. I have been working with MIDI since the mid 80's; that's 1980 and not my age-----yet!

Thanx so much Janne for this very kind review. I wish I knew how to collect and re-use Fairy dust but I don't. However if I could I know that my wife would complain as we have enough dust in our house now!

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.

Yes, so well done, Mario. They are even flitting from speaker to speaker. Very magical tones, and I really like the bending notes. The dust is easy to detect. I kept scraping some off my shoulders. Even the flute flutters. I believe I even saw the second cloud on the right.


Enjoy whatever happens!

what can i say that hasnt been said ?

my interpretation in my mind was a time i lived in africa ...
and we would go out and just look at the wonders of african nature.

in summary i can see this being used on tv as background to a nature film or maybe an underwater nature film etc.

kudos.

Marty, I'm glad that you liked this one.

I thought I was scraping Fairy dust off of my shoulders also, but alas, it was only dandruff.

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."
