I wrote this back when the western swing realtracks first came out in 2009. It's a traditional country gospel song in the style of the Grand Ole Opry - Martha White and take home a package of TN Pride days. I remixed the tracks using Tracktion and Ozone neither of which I had then.

It's called Walking Streets Of Gold

Hope you enjoy it. If anything's weird about the mix let me know. smile

Vocal - me.
Western swing realtracks.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Josie,

What a great toe-tapper. "Streets of Gold" is excellent on so many levels. First of all, your singing is fantastic! If your voice were a hand then the song and its style are a perfectly fitting glove. I really enjoyed listening. Then there's the composition (well, that's an easy 10/10) and the arrangement (another 10/10). I particularly like the chord at the end of the second last line that leads into the hook. To my way of thinking, this chord sets up the hook really well.

As I've said a number of times on this forum, AABA style is always a great style to listen to. This is no exception. In relation to the mix, it was well balanced and worked for me. There's nothing I'd criticize.

All in all, this is a real credit to you and your skills. I'm going back to do some more toe-tapping now!

All the best,
Noel

Josie,

An incredible piece of songwriting! Solid. From beginning to end.
Each of the lines leading to your title line - beautifully penned.
To be able to be repetitive yet interesting and convincing (all the "no mores..") is impressive. Really impressive. The "greet us/Jesus" rhyme is brilliant. Beautifully written on every level.

The production is a delight. And your vocal is so very "comfortable". Like you were born to this... Each time you sang "Jesus", I got chills.

WOW.

Hi Josie,

Noel's remark "If your voice were a hand then the song and its style are a perfectly fitting glove." hits the nail.
I enjoyed listening.

good job Josie!

Mixing was very clear on this end, and your beautiful vocals were right out in front. I don't know if much tweaking was required to get those real tracks to fit so naturally, but I thought the backing instruments sounded like real players... not just in terms of the sound quality but also in terms of the way a musician would phrase each passage.

You should take up baseball, because that was a home run!

Noel,

Thank you for the kind words. I wanted to cheer myself up after several loved ones passed away all in the same year and this is what came out. The aaba fit the traditional style that a couple of them loved.

Pat,

The tracks were tweaked quite a bit. That's what I love about real tracks - so tweakable. smile

Glad the mix is okay. I've been under siege with allergies.

Thank you very much for all you said.

What they all said. Nothing much left to add. It sounds to me like good ole Southern gospel with a Texas Swing edge to it -- great combo. Instrument choice and mix are spot on for complementing an outstanding vocal. Thanks for posting.

Josie this is GREAT! An on so many levels as many have already said, I love it.

One nit-pick . . . no not on the song I already said it was great, but in your Grand Ole Opry references, dare I say it . . . You forgot Goo Goo!

Don't worry I won't tell anyone back in Nashvegas!

Later,

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.
