Dear Forum Friends,
I’ve been listening to your songs over the last few months but haven’t had enough time to join the dialog. Sorry. You all are making some great music! I’m humbled by your skills and creativity.
I recently got a few songs back from the copyright office and I’ve posted them to my SoundClick page http://www.soundclick.com/dcspacedog.
The first song I’d like to share with you is called “Dream Away.”
http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=12421060&q=hi&newref=1
I originally wrote the melody when I was a teenager back the 70s but the lyrics were never that good. My Wife and I rewrote the lyrics this past winter and I recorded it with a simple accompaniment. It’s intended to be a folk-style lullaby easy to fingerpick on guitar. I used to play folk guitar back then.
On this recording, I’m playing the piano and strings (based on the BB generated strings) but the main instrument is the RT 365 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 085. I just used BB and RB for the recording and mixing. The vocal effect is a simple doubling of the lead vocal track.
Style is =PIANO_F.STY (Ctry Piano Bal, fpk.guit (85 RT))
I hope you like it. I’ll post the next in a week or so.
SD

SpaceDog,

I think your song totally works as a lullabye. I can easily imagine singing this song to my grandbabies (if I had any) as they drifted off to sleep.

Certain pop-type songs come and go without ever becoming part of the fabric of our lives. But other songs (like happy birthday, lullabyes etc) are so much a part of our patterns that they have a much longer shelf life than other songs. I'm glad you formally applied for copyrights to this song. Its the kind of song which, if someone famous recorded it, could catch on.

Do you plan to market these songs?

Pat,
You are too kind. I'm glad you liked it.
The copyright process is so easy and cheap, it seems like the right thing to do. I don't market the songs. I barely find time to write and record them. No one downloads them from Soundclick so I figure it would be a waste of time and money to pitch them.

If any one wants the leadsheet I'll send it to them.
Thanks
SD

Hi Space Dog,

I smiled when I saw that you'd posted a new song smile It's good to have you visit the forum again!

I agree with everything that's been said. This song is a credit to you. Very enjoyable and relaxing listening.

All the best,

MarioD,
You're so kind. I'm gald you liked it.
I wouldn't mind more people hearing my songs, but no one even downloads them off the website. I can't imagine enough people would buy them to make it worthwhile. Besides, with so many scams out there, I'd probably get burned. In fact, ever time I receive my copyright certs I get a scam from "record company" wanting to "help" me record and market the songs.
Anyway, Thanks for listening.
SD

SD, isn’t HillTop Records a PITA.

We always get a “sign with us and you will be a star” letter from them on every copyright! We copyrighted a Christian song and they sent us a letter stating that for $500 we will evaluate your song to see if it will fit in our latest Christian album. I wrote back that the song has been uploaded here so I’ll save my money and you can go and listen to it and see if it fits. I have serious doubts about them.

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.

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.
