Such a good day already. First Mario's March To The Gallows, and now another masterpiece from you, Derochette. Man, you pack each tune with so many ear-goodies that with each listen one can discover new gems. So well done, and so much listening enjoyment.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Crossover rock music with guitar and/or synthesizers and classical background is something I've always loved and always will.

Very good song, well arranged and pretty well mixed.
Enjoyed the listen.
A lot!

Derochette, this moves along quite nicely, lots to listen to.

It could be a soundtrack for a host of different film genres and I like it a lot.

Did you play any instruments?

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.

Hello Peterf.

Thank you for commenting on my composition. To answer your question about my working method, it all depends on the genre of music. For this one, I developed my chord sequence with two real strumming and finger guitar tracks as well as the drums in Classic biab. Then I reopened the song in the vst biab. I then extracted the midi sequence from the chords and then looked for the best sequences from solo realtracks. I took some midi parts on which I put my vst synth. For the drums, I took the midi sequence and the vst Mor from Eastwest for the drums. The choir track (eastwest choir) was overlaid on parts of the melody and chords of the chord track.
I hope to have answered your question. For the name of the realtracks, I put them in the vst biab, I extract what interests me then I select others and so on.

Derochette,
Very skillfully constructed using sophisticated techniques to remake RT instrument passages to suit the big,layered sound.
The title makes me wonder about the personal movie this is soundtrack to... but, as always, your compositions are fuel for the listener`s own imagining.
Well done!

Hi B.D. Thomas,

I generally use the synthesizer very little because I don't master it very well. I put it here on midi guitar solo tracks taken from realtracks. I'm glad you liked it. Thank you for your appreciation.

Hi BassThumper,

In many of my compositions, I play fingerpicked guitar or piano but not here where all the vst instruments have been put on midi lines. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks to you.

Hello BlueAttitude,

Here I used several synths to vary a little in my style. Thank you for your comment. I appreciated.

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

To quote B.D. "Crossover rock music with guitar and/or synthesizers and classical background is something I've always loved and always will."

We too have long admired that type of mashup and this is a GREAT example!

Your work flow and the outcome of it is amazing.

Well done!

Hi Chulaivet1966.

Thank you for your nice comment. I often try to use other sound textures to change. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. But that is what makes us progress.

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."
