Hello my friends from Biab,
.
It's been a while since I last posted on this forum. I come back with a composition and a video dedicated to an animal tying up the deer.
As Janice and Bud advised me, it's better for me to go for quality over quantity. For the music used, Biab helped me a lot both in the melody and in the inspiring musical phrases of this beautiful software. For the video I used magix X15. If you have the desire or the time, I thank you in advance for your wise advice. THANKS.

Best Regard
Derochette alias JaniJackFlash.

Derochette, this is a fantastic piece of music.
Nice melodic melody with the perfect backing tracks.
Expertly mixed.
An outstanding instrumental.

Derochette, welcome back! Wow, this is a grand piece! Beautifully arranged and mixed. Would be interested in knowing how much of this was BiaB and how much was produced by other means. The overall quality of this piece certainly far surpasses what I know how to get from Biab. Thanks for sharing!

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

Wonderful!
I immediately get an Irish feeling when I hear this.
Good arrangement, good mix.

There is one instrument on the right channel (e.g. at 1:11) that sounds like distortion, I thought my speakers had a problem shocked
I suspect this is intentional, but I would just remove it or make it less noticeable. IMO it doesn't add to the song.

A beautiful piece of music.
I am always impressed with your compositions.

And an excellent mix.
Well done.

Hi!

It's good to have you back on the forum. Your music is always excellent.

This is pretty and soothing to the ears. I love the variety of sounds. That was a very nice listen! Excellent work.

Hello, alias JaniJackFlash. Yeah, QUALITY is all over this. I thoroughly enjoy the changes and the way you've built this into a wonderful musical piece. The time is radio-ready, but I stay in my seat waiting or the next movement. Played it twice and was even more amazed the second time. Gee, dare I try for a 3rd? I imagine my self as the conductor and, man, my hands fly and point and lift and settle --sometimes all at once. What a wonderful soundscape befitting many story genres. Well done, Derochette.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi DC Ron,

Just like you I use Biab for creating the basic musical piece and presonus for mixing and adding instruments. To compose, I always start from Biab classic for my sequence of chords based on a style and I look for interesting realtracks or supertracks for the melodies. I then switch to Studio one where I use Biab Vst. I take my basic composition and I enrich my composition with different VST instruments or other RTs. I don't hesitate to replace certain realtrack melodies with orchestral vsts using the generated midi files. If I keep biab's Realtrack, I use melodyn to readjust certain dissonant notes. Finally, I add other tracks to give volume to the whole. I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for you nice comment.

Absolutely beautiful, both music and video. I just relaxed and mellowed out to your music and enjoyed watching the deer, thanks I really needed that.

Hi dcuny,

Thank you for appreciation.

Ps: I saw that other composers on this forum also used the synth V. This soft vocal is interesting

Hi B.d. Thomas,

I thank you for your appreciation. I paid attention to your comments but found nothing unusual. Maybe on the backing vocals, I should put an EQ on the high frequencies. Thank you again for your advice.

Jani

Hi floyd jane,

Your comment makes me extremely happy because in the absence of words in the soundscapes which are sometimes longer in the duration of the piece, the images are an asset to break the monotony of listening. I thank you very much.

Awesome instrumental. I love that flute (tin whistle?). The instrument spread and placement and arrangement in is fantastic. I enjoyed this composition!

Hi Al-David,

I'm happy to read you. I come to this Forum in my free time. I'm uploading fewer soundtracks because I'm now trying to combine them with videos and that takes more time. Thank you for your nice comment.

Jani.

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?

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."
