Hi all,

On 03/02/2014 fgcomposer posted his three versions of the Bleeding Fingers Contest by Hans Zimmer. http://soundcloud.com/flavio-gargano
Unfortunately he was thrown out of the forum because he didn't use PGMusic software. (His versions were very good though). But he gave me the idea of taking part in the contest. http://www.hanszimmerwantsyou.com/
Unluckily the contest was already closed (deadline February 24).
But as I had so much fun with the stems of Imogen Heap I wanted to experiment with the stems of Hans Zimmer.
I used the strings stem, the voice stem and parts of the percussion stem.
http://soundcloud.com/bleeding-fingers/sets/hans-zimmer-wants-you-1/
For the voice I created a harmony in Melodyne.
My imagination of the style was something Celtic (I had Riverdance in mind). And I found some RTs for that.
What I was missing was a fitting soloist.
I would never have thought I would ever use something like bluegrass, but there it was: the bluegrass fiddle. It suited perfectly, and I like it. Never say never again.

I hope you enjoy.

That's a totally wonderful sound you got going on there, there is no way I could have told you that was all RT's if you hadn't said so. That bluegrass fiddle fit in perfectly. I think you did some pretty outstanding arranging and mixing, too. Nice job on the harmony creation!

Dang, that is totally wonderful. If you are involved with music libraries and have some successes in the past (they know you), that should get picked up in a hurry!

Reading the track list, I would never have expected this to work - but it is superb!

Hi Guenter,

"Thoughtful, creative, amazing, wow, spectacular" were just a few of the many words that ran around in my brain as I listened. This is one of the best instrumental arrangements I've heard in the forum. It's awesome.

Regards,
Noel

Bluegrass roots are in the Appalachian mountains, US, and the genre developed from English and Celtic influences -- particularly with the fiddle playing. So it makes a perfect match. And that really shows in your production! Another one of your wonderful "How the heck did he do that?" arrangements. It is always a pleasant surprise what comes out of the pot when you through in so many seemingly incongruous ingredients. Awesome.

Why did the person get thrown off the forum, I know there are times others do not use a pg product but I had never heard of any being kicked off for that. The music sounded great thanks for sharing, that is a great idea I wish more composers did stuff like that.

Hi Guenter, excellent piece of music as usual. Hans Zimmer has been one of my favorites movie score writers for a long time, and this one sure poses a good tribute to him. IMHO, I think that the blue grass fiddle fit so well because chances are that the roots of BG playing comes from Irish and Celtic music in general.

Later

Guenter,

Brilliant!

I really like how you have shifted the focus. The original was so "overblown majestic". Yours has an intimacy to it. You seemed to have turned the original inside-out. Setting the orchestration back, bringing the vocals forward, adding the fiddle and percussion. A true transformation! You created a new piece instead of "enhancing" the original. More enjoyable than the original, I think...

As always, in awe...

floyd

Hi Guenter,

Everyone is saying "Wow!" Let me just add to that how utterly convincing this creation is. The orchestration sounds like it's been worked over by a professional arranger. The sound is huge and pure. Very impressive.

Guenter, It's amazing some of things you can find in BIAB with a little exploration. You certainly are one of the best at blending styles. A totally enjoyable listen. Expertly mixed. The fiddle is the perfect choice. Very nicely done.

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.
