I really haven't written many Christmas tunes -- only two. Maybe one year I will do a whole album's worth.

Feel free to post your older Christmas songs here also (new songs deserve a new thread!). No need to comment -- just enjoy (hopefully).

1.) Bad Bad Santa (Leach/Emmrich) A bluesy Christams song (non-BIAB) from 2008. I have lost the original tracks, but I really should re-do it.

2.) Red Fire Truck From 2010 using BIAB

Kevin - I know you said comments weren't necessary.. but... I remember Red Fire Truck from last year... Really liked Bad Bad Santa... you did a good job on that.... you should definitely try a BIAB version with the slower Texas Blues tracks... it would kill!

Bad, Bad Santa would sounds great and would sound even greater (?) with the new RTs for Blues that are around now.
Red Fire Truck - As we say here "what goes around, comes around". I think we all can remember something that we desperately wished for from Santa only to find it underneath the Christmas Tree on Dec 25th at whatever cost to our Parents AND then hearing those same Wishes from our own children and making sure that the magic of Christmas was just as special for them. Brought back good memories.
cheers
Ian

Floyd: Thanks for the comments (ha, ha). I don't think I could improve on that backing for Bad, Bad santa!

Sundance: .. and a Merry Christmas to you also.

JosieC: I don't have versions of these to do on SJ -- well maybe Red Fire Truck, but it is not "practiced" enough.

sixchannel: Rob Leach is one of my favorite composers and the groove he lays down here is hard to beat. I just don't think I could create a similar vibe in RT land. Thanks for the listen!!!

Danny C.: I haven't performed on SJ in a month! Maybe I will try and do some luchtime gigs this week. ... or maybe after Christmas.

Steve: Thanks for stopping on by.

I like them both and glad you reposted. I'm in with floyd on the suggestion of the blues tracks -- I can really hear Jack Pearson's guitar there!

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.
