March 24, 2021 User Showcase Song - Circle Back

My latest.....

Circle Back

It is a song about rising to your level of total incompetence in the professional world. If you detect any political buffoonery overtones in this..... well.... that's in the ear of the listener.

Aside from that.... dang I had some fun with it. So here's the specs on the details.

Style is a swing called Jumble hard rock shuffle.
Bass 2749
Piano 1591
B3 425
Drums are hard rock shuffle.

I'm singing on this and playing the guitars. It should be noted of course that I am using the new Spark modeling amp on the guitar parts. The rhythm is a clean amp of some sort.... might be a hardware default as well, and the leads are a crunch style that was edited from one of the hardware defaults. This is a pretty amazing little amp and the more I use it the more I'm liking what I hear. I am using my Joyo Ultimate Drive pedal on the front end, just to be totally honest. This pedal is not so much for distortion as it is to give a boost to the guitar's signal. I run it on a low and clean setting as a preamp because my Modern Tele is a bit weak on it's stock pickups.

It took me a while to write the lyrics to this. A line here.... a line there.... one day.... hey, I had it halfway done. Hope you enjoy it.

March 18, 2021 User Showcase Song - Look Like That

Now for something completely different --for me anyway. Here is a song written a long time ago and once recorded in Nashville with some incredible Nashville cats. My long-time friend and fellow BiaB user Zydecoal Bill Davis recently added another pedal steel guitar to his staggering arsenal of music weaponry in his studio, so I dug this out and revived and revised an old BiaB file, and Bill did two tracks of pedal for the background and solo.

Style is _FAMOUS.STY (Famous Hard-Hitting Country Rock)

Pasting the lyrics here would probably create a 2nd page for this post since each chorus is a bit different in the story. They are on SoundCloud. Thanks for all y'all do and I thoroughly appreciate your comments, especially your tricks for improving vocals

March 16, 2021 User Showcase Song - Lonely Nights

This one started out with a guitar theme I came up with over a set of chord changes. I then added a chorus, and Chris came up with the melody.

Marty then wrote the first two verses and the chorus, and Chris wrote the last verse. I thought the solo needed to change the mood of the song, so instead of doing a solo over a verse or chorus I wrote a bridge part for it.

Chris and Marty do a duet on the vocals, first time we have ever done that before, and I think they sound great together wink

March 12, 2021 User Showcase Song - Birthday Song 2021 (Escape Velocity)

Tom Adams (tommyad) and I share a birthday - March 4th. Today!
We discovered that on our first co-write/collaboration post.
On our birthday! Pure coincidence.
It is now our tradition.

I was wanting to do something with a baritone guitar.
Poking around the Styles (which I don't often do), I found a BAND that I liked.
_MIRE.STY (Mire Swampy Blues)
I tweaked the demo a bit and used that to set up a song.
And then wrote a lyric (another "topline" write).
Reflection of having had SO many birthdays...

It seemed like a good song to have some Tom Adams magic on...
So I sent him the stems including a vocal and the SGU and let him take it from there.
He dropped one of the original guitar tracks and added 3 or 4 of his own.
And harmonies. And spent time tweaking the drums.
And mixing. And mastering
(His fills, leads and solos on this are heavenly!! The stuff he did under the chorus is killer.)

Tom can correct me if I'm wrong...and further explain...

And we have Birthday Song, 2021...

March 10, 2021 User Showcase Song - Everything Fades In The End

I haven't posted any new songs for a quite some time, because I've been stuck with this song. Originally I wrote the chorus already over two years ago. The lyrics of the chorus were partly based on words of a terminal care worker about dying. But I had only some vague ideas for the verses and because I felt the chorus was one of the best things I have written, I couldn't touch it until I have something equally good... but nothing happened.. Then at the start of this year I decided to finish it by force, just to get back to songwriting and then go on with other songs. But it wasn't that easy, lyrics just didn't pour out. Maybe my brain is just too old or I'm trying too much to reach perfection by overthinking each word for many days...

I was hoping to write verses with simple chord progression and simple lyrics, but I just couldn't, not my style wink Finally I got finished something I was partly satisfied. Ideas are still not very clear, but at least I have a half-finished song I can work on later if the true inspiration finally strikes. But I can promise that the next song will be a lighter one smile

I used the style _FLYHIGH.STY (Fly High Ethereal Country Ballad) as the basis of the arrangement, it sounds really great, great combination of instruments and fits the mood of my vision perfectly. I added several other instruments, especially the solo guitarist is another fantastic RT.

March 09, 2021 User Showcase Song - Spooky Pachelbel

I like using Band in a Box to experiment with different aspects of music theory. I love being able to mess around with various chord progressions and see how they would sound with a full band behind them. As case in point is the following experimental tune I created in Band in a Box: Spooky Pachelbel

This is a straightforward right-out-of-the-box application of the following style. No changes to the default mix or anything:

How about another song with "blues" in the title? Please have mercy on me, just trying to fit in :)

Probably not breaking any new ground here but just picked up a new Fender Telecaster recently and wanted to see if I could make it rock lol!
On a more serious note, this one is inspired by the many people I see out on the road that long to be home. Thanks for taking time to give it a listen.
Drums - Rock Sync Kick
Bass - Through a very old Peavey Foundation straight into Studio One with EZ Mix plugin
Guitar - Electric lead and rhythm using a Fender Ultra Telecaster through a Headrush Gigboard

March 04, 2021 User Showcase Song - 2 Minutes To Open The Door

I offer you a new atypical unpretentious soundtrack for themed film music. .It is short 2 minutes, time to try to open a door

I have been using Biab for several years. It’s my favorite tool. I start all my soundtracks with it. First, I research the range of chords for the theme I want to develop. Here, it's a movie music theme with a specific theme. Secondly, I am looking for melodies from realtracks which could enrich my development of composition from the theme .. Everything is introduced from the vst Biab. The prepared draft, I import it into my daw, studio one, via the vst biab. Then I extract the parts of the files and the midi lines that interest me.,
Finally, I put orchestral vsts with sound effects targeted according to the theme. There, it is a simple research work in the sounds offered by the orchestral banks. In this case, I used two banks of projectsam: symphobia 1 and 2

To mentally visualize the scene represented in music, I will give you some details. The theme is :
"Following a technical problem, astronauts locked in a space station must find a door to open, in two minutes, in order to be able to escape and survive. Time is running out. The atmosphere is scary, especially since they only have two minutes to find a solution. It ends well or badly for you to judge.If I succeeded in creating through music the anxiety to find a solution quickly, then I would have succeeded in my bet.

So here no melody, only a clear atmosphere according to a theme that I have set for myself.

If you are interested, thank you for your comments. This is particular, I know, I hesitated but here is a forum where you can learn about other styles than those usually offered and it allows you to discover Biab in different innovative aspects.

March 03, 2021 Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows Reviews!

Head to for the latest Band-in-a-Box® reviews by Sound-Guy and CoolGuitarGear!

Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve into an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians. You can produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. As it has been for years, it’s an amazing program.

From my perspective, as a long-time user of BIAB, the above improvements, changes and additions definitely take the program to the next step. The new elements and audio upgrading are fantastic and I’m even more excited to work with this version than some others in the past.

March 03, 2021 User Showcase Song - External Emotions

External emotions can be difficult. Should I or shouldn't I? Does he/she or doesn't he/she? Should I buy it or not? Anxious or calm? Hopefully this, my first real attempt at an orchestral piece, will expose both sides.

BiaB style = Medium 4/4 Tempo Orchestral
Tempo = 75

Note that all tracks were modified to better fit the song.

Piano = Kontakt - wood winds - Kirt Hunter's Virtuoso woodwinds solo
Guitar = Kontakt - string ensemble - Kirt Hunter's Virtuoso strings
Bass = double bass - 1 - Kontakt - Kirt Hunter's Diamond Orchestra - concert basses
2- Kontakt - Amadeus - bass small section

Cellos = bass track 8via - 1- Kontakt - Kirt Hunter's Diamond Orchestra - concert cellos
2- Kontakt - Amadeus - cellos small section

I am playing the following via my keyboard controller:
Guitar - French horn - Kirt Hunter's Virtuoso brass
Solo strings - Kirt Hunter's Virtuoso strings
Choir - East West Play - Symphonic choir - full choir
Solo voice - Kontakt - AVP Jenny A1

I am playing the following via wind controller
Flute - Kontakt - Amadeus - flute II
English horn - Kontakt - Amadeus - English horn.

There are no effects on individual tracks.
Master buss effects = Breverb and compression.

oops I forgot, I played the timpani and gongs via my keyboard player. They were Kontakt - Kirt Hunter Diamond orchestra sounds.

Hi Folks.
Here is one of the latest tunes that I have done in collaboration with Ray (Rayc on forum). This was recorded in January, but was not fully complete and shelved for health reasons. I finally got around to re-recording my vocals and work on the mix . Still a bit too dynamic, because of blend of synths and Real Tracks, but more or less audible. Constructive critique is always appreciated. Thank you for listening!
