My first post and though I'm usually a vocalist and Guitar player I wanted to express my enthusiasm for the new String RT in BB 2014.

This is a randomly generated track with no form which used the new string quartet and a solo violin.

I took this over with a saved midi version and played with it in my DAW.

Hope you enjoy ..... I certainly had fun.

Here's the link.

Hey Mal,

That sounds great!

For clarity, were you using the MIDI Realcharts from the new PopStrings, and your own VST MIDI strings patches? And not using the RealTacks themselves?

And to get the Realcharts, did you use the new drag and drop feature in 2014, where you just dragged the strings track to the MIDI area of the Dropbox?

Thanks Peter.

I just saved as a standard midi after generating a melody and retained the string quartet and solo violin. Two tracks, string quartet and solo violin.

In my Daw I used Symphobia, doubled up the strings with Brass and used a solo violin. The tracks were not changed at all from BB.

I will be writing lyrics for these new RT's and can't wait to write some songs. It was a hurried little project but fun galore and I love these new RT's.

Mal, simply gorgeous. The cathedral ambiance made me imagine myself on the scene at a huge cathedral in Europe with only an organist at the keys. Sort of Phantom Of The Opera-esque.

Is that not the goal of good music; to transport the listeners to a more pleasant locale? This one had me checking my passport to confirm my whereabouts.

More please!?

Thank you Don ..... I truly think that BB is nearing the point where, given that little bit of imagination, some epic sounds can be generated.

Appreciate the comments.

Thanks for such lovely comments.

I've been listening to other peoples efforts and am impressed by the quality in a lot of cases. Some true Artists here.

It's difficult getting good sound. Editing on your own computer is an art in itself but when you upload I wonder if the file is compressed by the site and degraded somewhat.

I'll add those tracks I enjoyed .... Beats Facebook hands down and Kar sites Aghhhh!

Mal,

Beautiful sound and movement.

All the free music sharing sites compress the uploaded file to a 128 mp3 for playback.

Hi, Mal !


There is something divine Bachlike about
your progressions and it made me reflect
on the time when I sung all those great
chorals and Bach´s Christmas Oratory, not
to forget the real father of neverending
counterpoint Giovanni Pierluigi de Palestrina,
whom I adore and whose masses I´d love
to sing again as in those golden days !!!!!!:)))
Just simply great !!!

Cheers
Dani

Nice sound. I'm always being amazed at what this program can do. My only crit on this is that it's too long and repetitive. I notice that when I allow BB to generate a song, it can be excessively long. So I normally edit for length.

Remember the old show biz expression..... Always leave them wanting more.

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.
