An up tempo composition for a change - you could even dance to it!

BIAB styles used for bass, piano, organ and strings parts:
RACER.STY Racer - Ev8 fast Rock 155BPM
ALFAVIL2 AlfaVil2 - Ev.8 80s Pop synth 130BPM
SMOOTH!~ Smooth-st.8 MOR-FM 90BPM

Tempos changed to 129BPM and MIDI files dragged as usual into Sonar X3a. Sounds from my Roland Fantom X6. Drums from Addictive Drums. I did all the guitar parts and vocal.

Hi John,

I like that Santanaish vibe.
Good work!
Where did you get your video material from?

Many thanks Herb, Dani, Danny, Scott, Bob, Don, Guenter, Josie, Janice & Bud. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Josie, there was a bit of a 'painter's accident' there; I put in the clip of the little boy and the bulb he was holding lit up exactly over the head of the 'hoodie'!

Guenter, some of the clips are from videos I took myself and others I looked for on the internet. There are lot of online clip libraries that obviously charge for their pieces of work, but most of them have a few free ones to catch your eye. I have a Panasonic video camera that I bought for use on holidays, etc. and I often carry it with me when I'm out and about so I can capture any interesting scenes that might come in handy for a video later. You'd be surprised what simple things make for an interesting clip.

John

Song is very professionally polished and the video is outstanding. Great vocal performance. I know it is common to use the listen to the voice inside analogy, I have probably used it myself, not sure, but really you got to be careful though about listening to the voice inside, because Satan will try to get you to do things to, many killers say the voices told them to do it. The only voice to listen to is the voice of Jesus Christ and what He tells us to do in Scripture. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Thanks for sharing!

Hi John.

I loved this one!

All the instruments worked so well together and the guitar and vocals were perfect.

The production was amazing. Lots of texture, little bits of instruments coming and going, the breaks, the changes of feel - all the marks of a professional producer.

On top of all that, an absolutely perfect mix. Everything there to be heard, without anything competing for space and a nice loud and punchy sound.

In my view, your best to date, John.

ROG.

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.
