  1. Congratulations on getting into your own space. I like your new setup but it is impossible to see what you're doing in this video.
  2. First of all, welcome to the forum and to Cakewalk by BandLab. You've asked a great question. To properly answer your question it's nice to know what music genre Future funk is part of. That gives me an idea of how the music is created, through recording or electronic music. I performed an internet search and Wikipedia states Future funk is a sub genre of Vaporwave. That tells me you are more interested in creating electronic music than in recording musicians or singers. Deeper reading reveals Based on that article I'd think you may want to look at what BandLab Assistant and the online Bandlab platform has to offer in addition to looking at Cakewalk by BandLab (CbB). While CbB can certainly be used to create electronic music, it may not be the best place to start or the best tool for the job. BandLab Assistant offers many free loop packages that are suitable for use in creating music based in electronic music while the online platform offers many tools to enhance the loops. Cakewalk by BandLab calls loops "Groove Clips". The program is one of the few that can be used to create loops. I would use the program to create loops, use the loop matrix to assemble them into tracks, use the console view to add effects, use the tracks to consolidate the clips into a continious audio file and then combine everything into a stereo mix. I'm a beginner myself so I may not be the best advisor. I'm sure others will chime in and offer specific suggestions.
  3. Found this one today! Link to 200+ VST Plugins
  4. Thanks to everyone for the great feedback. I knew my forum mates would give me the straight scoop. The Spaghetti Western plugin is the reason I was steered to the site in the first place. Even at list price of $250 it is an amazing plugin that I'd love to play with. I did an internet search for the plugin and guess what site was at the top of the list. I'd never heard of the site until then. When I saw the plugin priced at $60 my first thought was WOW! I know the list price is $250 so I immediately became suspicious. The overwhelming majority of my software is free. or donated by fellow forum members. Some forum members have multiple product licenses and generous enough to donate their extra licenses for Melodyne Essentials and Kontakt 5 to me. I'm extremely grateful for their support.
  5. Check the Workspaces at the top, right of the interface. Set it to "None" and see if they are grayed out with no Workspace.
  6. Has anyone had any dealings with http://vst-club.com ? The site's prices seem too good to be true. Melodyne 5 Studio for $10, FabFilter Total Bundle 2020 for $10. Fluffy Audio Spaghetti Western $59. All available for digital download or boxed! I'm not trying to give them free advertising. I just haven't seen prices like this for boxed product so I'm wondering if the site is one of those too good to be true sites. Feedback is definitely welcome.
  7. I had the pleasure of seeing the tribute band, 1964, in the early eighties. The performance was in a college student center nightclub that held perhaps 200 people so the performance was up close and personal. The visuals were spot on and the sound perfect. During intermission the audience was invited to come up to look at the equipment and chat with the mates! I have been a big fan of the band ever since. The Analogues is a Dutch tribute band. I've watched YouTube videos of their Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road and White Album performances. They set a high bar performing studio albums live. Hopefully they will bring their show to the southern part of the US. I'd love to see the act. YouTube has a wonderful 60 minute documentary of the Analogues recreating Magical Mystery Tour. You can see it here: https://youtu.be/B5aD87iJikg
  8. You've got good ears. Durn good mix. Fame is a challenging song to tackle and you've done it justice.
  9. Wow, your website version seems to have more dynamic range and punch to it. A good song is even better! Evidently Drooble is like many other online music services that run uploaded songs through a compressor. I very much enjoyed reading your story on your Drooble webpage. I also like your musical taste.
  10. Very nice rendition. You followed the original arrangement pretty close but still managed to put your imprint on the song. I liked the song so much I downloaded it. I was surprised to discover the file format is MP4 instead of MP3. May I ask why?
  11. Listening through cheap headphones. The mix and production sounds polished and finished to me. The bass sounds about right to me. I haven't seen you on the Band-in-a-Box forum very much lately. I miss your presence there.
  12. @HIBI, thanks for the heads up. Like you I'm not seeing an update notification when I run V5.2.0 BandLab Assistant. I downloaded and ran the "latest" BA installer and now BandLab Assistant is V6.0.0. Great! Again, thanks.
  13. An +++ article +++ published in Wired magazine walks through the differences composers face creating video game soundtracks versus movie soundtracks. Very interesting and informative reading with some good links to click on for follow up if desired.
  14. @Calum Findlay, You might find +++ THIS +++ freeware thread useful.
