Here's another song I entered today in the Asterian Song Competition. You had to use the AI voice of Asterian, and it had to be an original song, newly composed and never released. I entered another song yesterday, which took me some time to program, but there was a day left before the deadline so I just wrote this one. It was super-simple, because I only used one style (keys, guitar, bass, drums) and no extra instruments or bits. Only added the AI voice using Synthesizeer V and a few backing vocals (Solaria.) There is NO WAY I could have made a demo like this without BIAB for the track and AI singers for the instant vocals. I think the sound quality of this real style is fantastic.


"Take It Slow"

I need a love song to say what's in my heart
I think you know just the way it should go
So much to say, don't turn away
If the words are too fast the feeling won't last
So I'm gonna take it slow

We've got a lifetime to share our life together
Always the right time to see how love can grow
And for all time our hearts will rhyme
I promise I'll always love you and take it slow

Don't believe that the rabbit wins the race
You've heard about the tortoise and the hare
No good to hurry love, that never is the case
When careless love can vanish into air

Lay down beside me and let me show I love you
In every moment there's magic in the show
It can't be wrong if love is strong
I'll sing you a lifetime love song, and take it slow
The best kind of love song is when you take it slow
I'll sing you a love song and take it slow

Tom, that's a pretty impressive day's work! I like this Asterian performance a little better than the last one. Sounds more nuanced and natural to me. Yeah, that RealStyle sounds really good and is a nice match for this style of song. Good luck with this one as well!

Thanks DC Ron, I think the reason you find this Asterian better than the first is because it was the second time I tried programming him, and made a lot of mistakes but learned during the first song. It takes a while to get used to each different Synth V AI voice, and how they sound and do things. I've never written (as well as produced a demo) in one day, but this is all due to the combination of BIAB and Synthesizer V. I had both programs running, and could try out chords and lyrics and had the singer there to hear what melodies and words would sound like against the track. These two programs are amazing.

Hi Tom,

This is my kind of music! We love Smooth Jazz and Smooth RnB. This falls right in the middle. I agree with Ron that Asterian sounds more natural in this song. Nice programming. The BGVs are great!

Love the song as well as the production. That was a very enjoyable listen! Good luck in the contest!

Best to you,

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.

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."
