To quote Janice "Great lyrics and reminds me of early Beatles." We just streamed it from phone to our living room sound system. Great sound all the way around. Will watch the video when we gravitate to the computer room, i.e., after more coffee. Another good one for sure!!

Hi Bud and Janice.

Thank you! I have to say that Janice's quote has started my Tuesday brilliantly. Much appreciated, Janice Quite honestly, though, I can only write songs because of the power of BIAB. Peter Gannon and his team are the ones who deserve the real credit.

I'm glad you got to hear this on a different sound system and that nothing stood out as out of place. Every time I mix a song, I reflect on the philosophy that has sometimes appeared in Bud's signature about mixing. It is so true. The process of mixing never really ends, it just reaches a point where you say, "OK. That's it! I'm leaving it there." That's when I cross my fingers and hope that the overall sounds works for others.

Once again, thank you.

All the best.
Noel

Noel,

Greg is right - this sounds like (another!) Broadway show tune. Fess up - are you writing a musical??? You know, sooner or later, you're going to have to write SOMETHING that is not quite so positive... your show needs some pacing...

LOVE the chorus! (had to not watch the video, though.. the flowing words were distracting from the song lyrics).

(I STILL hear "... wait and see..." in my head all the time).

Keep it going (but don't forget about that pacing...)

Howdy, watched the vid this morning. Excellent and having done several I can really appreciate the amount of editing it took to put that together. This time I got a bit of a Badfinger vibe while listening. Nice.

Howdy Floyd,

Thanks for once again dropping by, listening, and writing some comments. I always like reading what you have to say.

It's interesting that you and Greg hear the song as being sweetened with 'musical' flavours. I wonder if it's the I6/4-V7-I cadence (using figured bass terminology) that does that? That's a much-used classical treatment of the perfect (also called 'authentic') cadence. In this song, the cadence translates as A/E-E7-A. I always like this particular cadence because of the complete sense of finality that it brings to a section. It's common in musical theatre works, too.

For what it's worth, I've just written a song with Brenda that sounds very much like it's from a musical to my ears. I must get that one up to see what you think!

Once again, thank you!

All the best,
Noel

Hi again, Bud.

Thanks for coming back and having a look at the video. It took a while to get it up and running. I used an opensource, multitrack Linux program in Ubuntu called "Open Shot Video". It's an excellent little program but the more I asked it to do, the more likely it was to crash. Towards the end, that slowed me down a bit because I needed to restart the software a number of times. Thank goodness for CTRL+S

I have never read "Badfinger" in a post aimed at me before! That's a first. And thanks for the smile it gave me.

All the best to you and Janice,
Noel

Hi,
Great song. The production, too, is nice and tight. The vocals sit really well in the mix.

Very impressed also by the video.

Noel,

Very good job, my friend. +1 to the organ. As usual, good job with the lyrics, and a very uplifting song!

Hi Noel

I really enjoyed both the music and video. That video took some time I imagine. Quite nicely done.

The only thing in all of it that I got even slightly hung up on was the line 'computers, clocks, cars'. I didn't understand it till I read it. I like the alliteration, but it kinda comes across as a mouthful? I'm wondering if there's a way to phrase those 3 words so that there's a slight bit more space between the words?

Very nice to with a great message!

Peace,

Ian

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
