Hi my friends from Biab.

It's been several months since I last posted on this forum.

I come back today with a composition "Wild Horses with no name". It took me a while to make it because I wanted to create a video for this soundtrack. I think I have achieved the goals I set for myself. It's up to you to see if I've reached them. Thank you in advance for your comments.

Used tools :
Style Alberti.Sty.These are piano and drums midi files on which I put vst pianos (Steinway B from Eastwest) and drums from Eastwest. I added a few notes from a solo guitar to give more depth and vary the melody.

You can music alone on soundcloud with the link: https://soundcloud.com/user-318966631/horses-with-no-name

or preferably music and video :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A404cqRHpPY

Nice cinematic piece from you.
I kept thinking what it would sound like if the tempo was doubled half way through after a pause and then faded out.
Like the horses were running off into the distance.
Just a thought.

Derochette,

A good listen. You do The Best cinematic stuff on these forums...
Well mixed.

I especially like the sound of the piano. You mentioned EastWest - is the piano from there? What is it, specifically?...

Enjoyed.

Hi floyd jane,

I purchased a "symphonic orchestra gold complete" bundle from Easwest. This bundle includes many different orchestral instruments including an F Steinway piano. The vst QL Pianos Gold Steinway D alone can be purchased from best service. Thank you for your nice comment.

Derochette, you write songs we can see. Love this story. yessir, in my opinion you most definitely achieved your goals. I first listened to Soundcloud, and was blown away by the quality of those instruments, and your ability to manipulate them into such a fine piece of music. When listening I envisioned one particular horse in the group and the story had a sad and happy ending. I didn't see that in the video, but I really enjoyed the galloping. Well done, and I missed you.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Derochette, that's wonderful - every piece is so in tune with the others and all they sound like freedom - yes, the ocean space and wild horses running - you put them into one whole - great, really!

Derochette, you have met your goal and then some!
While listening to your excellent music and watching those horses I thought that I was watching a documentary on wild horses.
Outstanding mix also.

Loved it.


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 didn't watch but I did listen to the youtube audio as it's often better than the soundcloud/soundclick et al.
This sounds terrific though the electric guitar gets a little histrionic in spots.
Your progressions and arrangements always reach up and out to create space and weight.
The title threw me given the America song by a similar name.


Cheers

You achieved your goal - very cinematic and the music accompanies the video very well.

Nicely done.

Hi BabuMusic,

This is the nicest comment anyone can give me. I could have told the story of a horse in pictures, but I preferred not to ignore the others.

I was surprised by the good quality of your video on your last composition.

I used the Magix software for the first time and I still have progress to make in this area.

Again a big thank you to you.

Hi Aleksandrk,

Your comment makes me happy. I looked for video clips for this composition where the horses seemed to be free without showing the humans in the background. A big thank you to you.

Nice - I especially like the way it evolves of the course of the song.

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

Hi rayc,
Thank you for your constructive comment.

It is true that I put a lot of delay on the guitar. For the title, maybe I should change it because it reminds us of the group America (which was a musical masterpiece) with horse in the singular. I put it in the plural.

I was excited to see this song available on the forum. Your pieces just bring my studio alive with very cool music. Mixes are so clear and clean. Awesome to use as references and ear tuning before mixing. Love your stuff. Well done

You are very good at creating cinematic pieces, and this is no exception. Piano sounds great, and I also like the electric guitar, it was unexpected but works well I think.

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."
