Band In A Box woes. Sunny Backing Track: update very soon!

I make it no secret that a lot of the backing tracks you will find here are made with Band In A Box. BIAB can however be temperamental sometimes. Sounds dropping out, silly breaks, weird chord voicings, crazy endings, instruments totally out of balance making drastic mixer adjustments necessary etc, etc…

Slow or fast: about tempos

Generally, a piece of music has it’s “ideal tempo” or tempo range. Most music is composed with a certain tempo (expressed in bpm/ beats per minute) in mind. This doesn’t mean that a tune cannot be played in a, sometimes radically, different tempo. A very good example is Lo-Fang’s version of  “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie Grease (I dig both his and the original version, but his version blew me away from the first note).
