Hi all,

we are waiting for summer to return. So I think it's time to post this title.
It is the first song I did with BiaB. I had ordered Biab in June 2012, two months before my retirement, when I wanted to start making music again. But I was so curious and couldn't wait. And so I did this song with the appropriate title.
In the beginning I mixed in Realband. But in August 2012 I made a remix with reaper. I don't know why I haven't posted it yet.
Here it is: Pleasant Anticipation
RTs used:
RealDrums: FusionBusyTerryClarke^1-a,b:Blastix, Ride
RT514:Bass,El,Funk Slap Ev100
RT1437:Piano,El,JazzFunkGroovin 110 RT1435:Gtr,El,Rh,JzFnkGrvChord110
RT1651:gitarre,El,Sol,JzFnkEv 110blz
RT475:Sax,Alto,Bossa Ev140
I hope you enjoy.

Sounds great. Excellent mix. The guitar solo was "new" to me - might have to try that in something...

A BIG +1
I changed my password to "incorrect" so whenever I forget it the computer will say, "Your password is incorrect."

64 bit Win 10 - the latest BiaB and RB - I always get the updates - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

thanks for listening and commenting.
And yes, Carlos Eduardo is a great guitar player.

Well, summer is here for us and it wasn't with much anticipation!
The high temps and humidity cut into our non-musical activities
of hiking, biking and kayaking but, hey, more time to listen to
good music and this is definitely good, actually, great music.
As already mentioned the guitar is a super choice. And, yep, it too
reminds me of a show tune or theme. Cool production!

#TipTuesday - Export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Lists in Band-in-a-Box® 2016

One of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Windows is the ability to export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums lists to a spreadsheet.

To do this, press the [Copy List] button within the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Picker windows. This will put the entire list on a file that saves within your BB folder, but it will also open up right away as a Notepad document when you choose [OK] on the message that appears.

When the Notepad document opens up, just select the entire contents, and copy it to your clipboard. When you paste it into an Excel (or other spreadsheet) document, you'll see that it separates the information into easy-to-sort columns.

This feature is also available in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac.
