March to the Gallows

The title says it all.

Warning this is a very dark ambient/trance song that some may not like.

BiaB style = Ambiention - Electronic
Tempo = 40 BPM

Bass - Kontakt- Karanyi sounds - Analog Tales - preset - FR Bass Distort
Piano - Kontakt- Karanyi sounds - Polyscape - preset - 14 Reed Sweeper Wide2
Guitar - Kontakt - Loop De La Creme - preset - 10 Clean Strings Choir Emotion - I modified the sound to my liking.
Drums - Kontakt - RA Stompbox - preset - 15 the Big Impact

Me via my keyboard controller:
EastWest - Play - Symphonic Choir - Sopranos
Kontakt - RKlang Glling
Kontakt - Gongs

As always all comments are welcomed.


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.

I like the title.
A very sombre mood well described.
The ending left me dangling.

The title does say it all.
I was expecting the 1st chord change to happen sooner but then it made sense.

In Iran, the hangman is still hanging today.
If you ever visit, don't get caught robbing someone or you may hear this song with tied hands.

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.

Very nice.

I was trying to figure something out. It sounded like some of the tracks were using a swing groove and others were even. And in several places in the song, I couldn't figure out which one it was. Maybe that was just me and how I was hearing it..... The drums that started it were in a swing groove and then the music sounded even.... this continued throughout. Not too distracting.... but little things like that stick out to me.

I thought it was just a tad too long.... but again that's just a personal opinion

Ray that dangling ending was on purpose, much like what happens at the end of the march.

Thanx for being brave and listening and commenting on this one!

Thanx Steve. You will never see me visiting Iran or any other extreme Muslim country. Also include a communist country and Mexico to that list!

I tried to emphasize the difference between the police/guards taking the prisoner to the gallows. The police/guards were the drums and the other rhythmic parts the criminal, i.e. happy verses sad. Maybe I didn't get what I intended?

Yes, it probably is to long.

Thanx for listening and commenting.

Hi MarioD,

Nice atmosphere created. Quite gently, the choirs are perfect. Very pleasant.

The visual I got was March to the Gallows of the Warlock King.

Great cinematic backing.

Quite the mood you have set with this one, Mario! I could easily see this being used in a movie.

Very creative, well done!

This must have been a very important criminal to have such a march. Those drums call the whole town to join to see the justice. Man, you are so good at this, Mario. What a treat to hear your stories in such fine sounds that lift all kind of emotions from your listeners. I would expect a dirge to the gallows, but that would be from the prisoner's perspective. Now a New Orleans funeral march is quite different. Well done!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Great atmospheric piece.
There’s also an interesting rhythmical contrast going on like a heart fluttering.

Thanx Dave. I am a strong believer that with BiaB and a little creativity you can do any genre you wish.

Thanx Marty. I try to set moods with my songs that each listener can interpret their own way. With BiaB, MIDI, and a set of good MIDI sounds one can do wonders IMHO.

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!

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."
