Hi all, as suggested by Peter Gannon here are my original songs done in BiaB and RealBand.

Sorry Peter I can't remember all or even some of the effects/reverb etc (hence my request in the wishlist for a memo on each track in RealBand)

1. Dreams of You

This song was written for someone who has lost a very good friend but believes that one day they will be back together.

Style is _CRYSTAL.STY (Ctry 12-8 Bal w PedSteel (65 RS))

RealTracks in style: 533:Bass, Electric, 12-8 Crystal Sw 065
RealTracks in style: ~526:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Hank Sw 065
RealTracks in style: ~529:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 065
RealTracks in song: ~627:Guitar, Pedal Steel, Background 12-8 Crystal Sw
RealDrums in Song: Nashville128^03-SideStick

2. You Walked Away

This song was just an experiment out of the blue. I was trying to get a Spanish feel but got this instead.

Style is _DIRE_SL.STY (Med RockBal w Dire ElGt (85 RS))
RealTracks in style: ~518:Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~362:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~508:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev 085
RealTracks in song: ~511:Guitar, Electric, Soloist Dire Ev 140
RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven8^1-SideStick,Ride

3. Can You See Me

Once again just messing around and thought about looking for someone or something (hint in there, listen to the end and you will understand)

Style is UKPWRBAL.STY (UKPowerBallad -Loose Slow Rock)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Finger Electric Bass (34), Brass Section (62), Acoustic Guitar (26), Strings (49),
MIDI Drums :1 Standard Drum Kit (1)

Converted Midi to Audio in RealBand

Sorry don't remember all realtracks, I know that I dropped one from Biab to RealBand
i.e. BBGuitar_Real_SingleRender_DragDrop_2 (1)

4. The Mary Beth

I was attempting to write a folk song and thought about my father on a ship in the second world war.
I changed it to be more oldie worldly and came up with this.

Melody has 615 notes, I chose a flute but can't remember which Melody I chose.
Style is EAGLE2+.STY (Medium tempo Country Rock+)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Acoustic String Bass (33), Acoustic Piano (1), Acoustic Guitar (26), Slow Strings (50),
MIDI Drums :1 Standard Drum Kit (1)

I will post more songs as time permits.

Win 7 64 bit, Biab 2015, Realband 2015
