A small instrumental I assembled in Logic Pro featuring a faux choir backing a wistful "Gypsy" fiddle. It has an old-timey feel to it and, I think, a lot of heart in that fiddle part. Really, the section at 1:36 makes me want to cry.

Sandbox Angel

I had everything I needed except a bass, and for that I turned to Band-in-a-Box.

Mark,
Unusual sounding track. Not my type of music, but I found it interesting. Good effort.
Thank you for sharing.

The 1st couple of fiddle notes sounded more sax like.
Once the fiddle gets going it's a cool thing.


Cheers

Intriguing soundscape, and just a plain cool listen. I like the complexity and the whimsy of the production.

Thanks for the eyes and ears and thoughts, folks, your interest is much appreciated. I’m trying to make my way out of an extended non-musical state, and this 3-4 year old pre-BIAB piece was available as a BIAB upgrade project.

Thanks for the kindness and the image… now I’m seeing something Nutcrackerish and musicboxy when I listen.

Cool, Mark. It starts out like background music for a scary movie (maybe my granddaughter has me watching too many of those), then it turns into a glorious story populated by animation characters. I really enjoyed this a lot. Quite creative.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hey, thanks, Marty. I don't hear the horror, myself, but I'm happy to scare people if I can! Glad you enjoyed and mondo thanks again for the comment.

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.

Sounds good Mark.
An unusual start but this thing really cooks once it gets going.
I can picture this as a song for a figure skater!
An interesting and great work.
Keep up the good work.


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.

Kinda avant-garde, I like that.
Unusual, but very interesting.
Was fun to listen to.

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."
