I like this a lot, especially the guitar leads. My only complaint is that there was not enough guitar leads in the song as I much prefer the guitar leads over the synth leads. I though the synth leads were a little redundant, however that my just be me and YMMV.

It is a good song!

eric,

Always enjoy your guitar. You were really cookin' on this one. I agree with Mario - the synth could have lasted maybe 30 seconds and then bring your guitar back in about 1:30... Good rhythm to the backing tracks (the end was a bit abrupt). I also thought a trumpet would have been a nice addition to this one...

Love the guitar.

Greg spoke the exact words I initially thought. Carlos would really like that.

Maybe the synth solo is a touch too long, and repetitive. I was trying to use it as a hook but it didn't quite do that for me.

Nice feel and groove though throughout the whole song, but perhaps the ending was a little unpredictable / truncated?

Hi, Eric !:))


I liked your mambo truly very much !
You are mastering this latin genré also
I can hear !:)) I think you´ve really
captured the right mood here. I see
before me a couple entangled in a soul
dance in a dark and smoky
(misty) night club somewhere in the Caribbean ?


Cheers
Dani

Hi Eric,

nice playing and a great guitar tone.
Agree with some others: It's a pity you didn't
bring back your guitar after some synth lead.

Hi Greg, I agree, your guitar playing is way too good not to return on a third chorus. Great stuff!

Hey eric,

Absolutely every time I hear you play, I come away thinking "I wish I knew how to play guitar". You're very talented and your music is ALWAYS a pleasure to listen to.

I really enjoyed this. It's great to hear something Latin.

Regards,
Noel

Well, I know many artists don't like comparisons....but I'm gonna jump on the Santana bandwagon here. Mighty tasty and a cool backup to go with the wonderful guitar. I love this music!

Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

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.
