Inner Sanctum

Proceed with warning, this instrumental may not appeal to some.

You are in a very private special place. You get really scared and nervous when evil tries to take over your mind and body. But then you calm down when good takes over. Back and forth you go. Which will win? You have to listen to find out!

BiaB style = Planet Ambient Space Ballad
Tempo = 50 BPM

I deleted the bass and drums
Piano = FM8 - Preset Bells 3
Guitar = Phoenix - Mirage - preset Warm Key
Strings = Synthmaster one - preset Pad choir Oooh MR
Utility = Synthmaster 2 - preset PAD More Strings FN

Me - P-Bass - Amplitube - preset Solid State Bass Preamp with
Chorus added
Guitar - Xaviere Pro 900 - Amplitube - preset 51 Heavy Phase
Via my keyboard controller - EastWest Symphonic Choir - preset full choir

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.

Mario,

Love this... Beautiful and mysterious.

The bass and guitar sound great. Very cool guitar effects.

The mix, as always, is excellent.

Thanks for the warning, friend. I would've been lost and scared, but the bass held the hand of my mind and guided me onward in spite of my ignorance of the outcome. It kept me brave, and helped me see the beauty surrounding the danger, realizing that fear is an illusion in this realm. Love your style, Mario.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanx Bob. I was a little worried about the so thanx for that and the bass and guitar comments. I appreciate them.

Guitar as serious evil doer.
Bells of light.
Choir as definers of space.
Very nice Mario.

That is a great description of a fascinating composition. It would be very difficult to add to that ... but we'll try.

Cinematic in spades. Great arrangement, performances and mix.

Sublime spookiness if you will!

Enjoyed it,

The maestro strikes again!

Your composition is wrought with unresolved tension (until 3:22)---a haunting, suspenseful, and hypnotic mood. Very engaging.

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

Good stuff, Mario!

I like how the bass keeps everything anchored. Cool stuff happening with the choir and the bells, and of course I like the guitar work too.

Very creative!

Musically very clever, I really love how the bass rules the darkness of the tune, frighteningly gently, reminding me of Death as the bassist in Bill & Ted movies. First the choir sounds like the bad guy, but in the end it leads you to the heavenly bliss. Excellent arrangement, every instrument has an important role in this play of emotions. I enjoyed this vivid and colorful journey.

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."
