So I am sure most of you know by now that our beloved Nelson Mandela passed on this Thursday. I was thinking how to keep his legacy alive but of course the answer, at least to me, is quite simple. I have to keep making small changes in my own life. So I sat down and wrote this song this weekend to remind me to do this. Everyday.

Realtracks are
RealTracks in style: 366:Bass, Electric, Country Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~364:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 065
RealTracks in song: ~702:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Spirited Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~369:Pedal Steel, Background Ev 065
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven16^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

Lyrics are on Soundcloud
As always comments are appreciated

Joanne:

I like your song. Very nice.

I especially like the last line:

Now I can dine
at the table you laid

Good job. I hope a lot of people hear this tune.

Hey Joanne,

Very catchy tribute. I like the chord changes and the way you brought in the backing. Mix sounds good to me and whatever settings you're using really compliment your voice.

Hi Joanne,

beautiful tribute. Everything top notch.
I can't hear a pedal steel, but I hear a violin.

Danny, John, Floyd, Tommy, Scott, Josie and Guenter

Thanks so much. I appreciate all your kind comments. It is really a bit of an emotional time but I guess an emotional time is a good time to write a song. I just hope I can touch a few of the hardened hearts, especially here.

I have now included a VIDEO that I quickly put together. The link is in the first post.

Joanne:

I just saw the video. Only heard the song before.

Nice job on the video as well. I liked how you added several video layers and included some video for the call and answer.

Like I said earlier, I hope a lot of people hear/see this.

John

Well done, all around. Good mix, excellent vocals, and heartfelt.

Sometime less really is more, and this is an great example.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Rich, Janice and Bud and David - Thanks for have a look at the song. Appreciate your comments.

Scott - Thanks for listening a second time!

John - The video production was a little easier this time!! I think I have mentioned before that I use NCH video pad software for making the videos.

I think the thing that made it easier this time is that I put the main video where I needed most of the synching on the time line. I put the entire clip on here and then lined that up with the audio. I “detached” the audio from my recorded clip and deleted that (if you leave that audio in and just mute it you get some clicks).

I then layered the additional clips over the basic clip and lined that up where necessary, also detaching and deleting all the audio on the other clips. I then put the fades and effects on the overlay clips. The thing I cant figure out yet is how to “fade” from the main clip to a clip that has been overlaid. You only seem to be able to put a fade on one entire clip so that doesn’t help.

Joanne,

Both of my ears agreed that that was the best song of yours they've heard! I support their conclusion. It was top shelf all around.

Very impressive work on so many levels!

All the best,
Noel

What a fantastic song, and tribute. Loved the harmonies and the dubs, and the video was really sensitively done. Superb lyrics. Congratulations.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
