Here is my latest song with Band in a Box: Same Old Road

I used the Audio track in BIAB to record my singing then changed the Wav file to read "Same Old Road soloist".
This Placed the Audio as a Performance track onto the Soloist Track.
I was then able to re-record the Audio track without having to overdub the Audio.

****** Song Summary *************

Key=C , Tempo 120, Length (m:s)=3:08

Style is _CTRRKJN.STY (MedCountryRock with Piano[120RS])

Lyrics

Here again down this old road
Longing for you all the time
Seems like I have been here before
Your promises dashed on the shore

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that would be divine

Yeah baby I'm walking down the same old road
Just thinking of you once again

Instrumental

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that it would be divine

How we danced on that balmy night
Well we danced till the morning light
We held each other so very tight
Baby yeah it felt alright

Fine work here! Very smooth flow, So if I understand correctly all of this was recorded, without leaving biab?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi PgFantastic,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes it was all recorded in BIAB using the Soloist spare track as the main vocal (by changing the Audio Tracks name to Same Old Road Soloist).
Then recording the backing in the Audio Track and adding Harmonies One up.

This saved me from any mistakes (although not all blush) as I could just re-record again keeping the good recording - does that make sense? - what I mean is that if the Audio on the Soloist track is good then I can leave that one alone and record the backing again. Phew...

I like the way you start with the drum, it sets the groove, let's you know what to expect

and I liked the selection of piano too

George,
your voice always reminds me of Roy Orbison. I'd love to hear your version of PRETTY WOMAN

Hey George,

Very impressive doing this all in BIAB.

I like the groove and the Roy O. vibe too.

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.
