Hello there!

I'm a new (Jan '14) owner of Band In A Box, and I've been lurking here for the last couple of months learning and seeking answers. I'd like to thank you all for being so helpful even though this is our first communication. The search function has been my good friend as of late. smile

"Fuzzy Cat" is my second ever Band In A Box creation. It uses a style called "J!TRAD.STY". BB substituted Real Drums in and I replaced the banjo track with a Real Track called "Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Freddie Sw 140". These are the only BB parts I used. The rest of the parts were played on my EWIUSB using a VST called WIVI Band.

Fuzzy Cat

Thanks for listening, and nice to meet you all.
Dan

Dan,

Welcome.

What a fun song, very enjoyable. I used to regularily go to a Jazz club in Putney, South London UK that had the greats playing music like this, Your playing would have fitted in perfectly with that band.
I am dancing like Baloo the bear to this.

2nd song eh cool
I look forward to more.

Alyn

Hi Dan,

You must be a very very experienced man at playing trad jazz. This is AWESOME+ !!!!! The melodies and the counter-melodies you weave throughout the mix show some gold-medal musicianship.

I don't remember hearing this standard of trad jazz on the forum before. All I can say is ...



Welcome aboard!
Noel

Hello everyone!

I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcomes. Thanks also for having a listen and leaving a comment. Your time and input is much appreciated. smile

I also forgot to mention in my original post that the mixing and MIDI recording was done in Reaper. I was very surprised and pleased when I found out I could drag tracks straight from Band In A Box into Reaper. An awesome capability, indeed.


Thanks for listening,
Dan

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.
