Dan ...

I looked in for a few seconds and saw this with no comments. So, I took a few minutes to listen. So glad I did.

I really enjoyed this!!!! Calming, soothing, and a pure joy to listen to. It would make a terrific soundtrack piece as is. I have literally, two or three hundred instruments for which a lyric would nice. Lyrics arrn't my strong point.

Glad you posted this. Gotta go now - time for round three of meds for my wife. Take care.

Alan...thanks so much for your comments...I wasn't sure whether this would get any...it's far afield from most of my posts...we probably all have these lying around...compositions with no words (yet?)...and you know sometimes they don't need them...it is hard however to title them cause you may lock yourself into a direction they don't need go in...well we'll se...thanks again...Dan

I think it's a good song and I'm glad you resurrected it.
I'm not sure where you could add vocals, it sounds like an instrumental to me. Like a film score.
A good one!

Cool song - the melody sounds like it would work nicely as a vocal.

Thanks for putting it out "As-Is"

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

Hi Dan
Sounds fantastic
Best you find several singers to sing the song
And at the end all sing together
This will be an absolute top song
Many greetings

Hi, Dan. Got any Dixieland? Asking for a friend. Man, this is so good. It may not have your usual "country/folk/gospel fare," but it is full of your inspiration and passion. Excellent piano and those strings sound amazing. What a beautiful melody and a strong build. AN incredible mix. Just beautiful, man.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dan,
Very nice composition. Classy, yet has a modern feel. I think piano is a little too loud in places, not throughout the tune. Good one and thank you for sharing.

We would not have any concern over lyrics as this is very cinematic in feel.
It conjures up many mellow and pleasant images ... a good thing!

It's a great example of user instrumental performances and BiaB tracks.

Excellent!

Dan,

You've crafted a beautiful sounding instrumental here! I didn't take note of the sounds of the realtracks in this but I certainly did the parts you contributed! They are polished and pro sounding all the way! This will be an even more fabulous song when you get inspiration for some lyrics! It's a great job all around!

Thanks, TB

It's taken me some time to come around to listening.
I have to admit I was put off by the label (...Modern Symphonic Anthem).
To be honest I hear it as neither symphonic nor anthemic, but it is a lovely song.
What happened at 3.15?


Cheers

Ray...I always appreciate your thoughts...yeah I guess I may have mislabeled this one (or not?)...the dictionary defines symphonic as "suggestive of a symphony especially in form, interweaving of themes, or harmonious arrangement" and an anthem as "a rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause"...I thought this was both (at least to me...but I've been wrong many times)....well at least it's "modern" because it's not an old symphony or an old anthem...so maybe one out of three...I did the instrumental part right!...thanks for your comments...Dan

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."
