This piece is one that gathers layers as it moves along. It starts out with minimal instrumentation then builds with each new verse. This probably won't appeal to everyone but I (Al) had a great time putting it together! We don't normally leave the drum count-off at the beginning but thought it was a good fit for this particular piece.

We like just about all genres of music and dabble in all of them at one time or another. For those of you who enjoy this genre, hope this sits okay in your ears. (Don't miss the short tag at the end!)

Alan,

Cool! Very enjoyable.. I like when an instrumental seems to "hold together" and "song like a song"... this does.

You used a midi drum track - what did you use for drums sounds (they sound good)...

Like it...

Hi Alan,

enjoyed this very much. I like how the song builds up.
The two pianos are great.

Hi Floyd ...

Thanks for the nice review!!! As I mentioned in the intro paragraph, it's not going to be to the liking of some people - it's much different than most of what we hear on these boards. Glad you enjoyed it.

Regarding the drum sounds ... everything you heard in the percussions was indigenous to that midi drum track. I added nothing to it what-so-ever. The "ring-bell" on the small cymbal and the wood block are all included with that midi drum track. Pretty cool for a midi track! And the sound was crisp and bright.

Thanks again! Best to you from both if us ...

Alan & Di

Good Evening, Guenter (Saturday Morning there in Karlsruhe) ...

Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for letting us know. And yeah, I looked a long time to find that rhythm keyboard on the left channel. i wanted something that was full and expressive but wouldn't interfere with the lead keys. It seems to have worked out OK. Thanks for hat nice compoliment! Best to you!

Hi Mike!

I had a feeling you might like this one ... and I was thinking of Alex (Dean), too. Glad you enjoyed it and the ending tag with the keys. Have a great weekend. Hasta luego!

Hi Tom ...

Sorry to be so late getting back to you. We learned last week that our 20 year-old granddaughter has cancer and the prognosis is not good. So, we've been tied up with family issues regarding that.

Thanks for the kind words! And yeah, getting those two pianos to not step on each other very much was the real trick! Glad you enjoyed it! Best to you ...

Al

Hey man, that's cool. Like Floyd said, it totally gels. The production is outstanding, professional.

My mind cannot create this kind of music. I don't know how ya'll do that!



Wishing you both strength and peace.

Scott

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.
