Friday Night Special

One Friday night my friend JonD and I got together and after a few cocktails and came up with this chord progression. A couple of weeks later we got together and worked on it until it is what it is now. JonD is playing the Fender Rhodes and Vibes via his MIDI keyboard controller and I am playing the bass, lead and rhythm guitars. Band in a Box supplied the drums.

The BiaB style was Smooth Jazz Ballad (65 RS). We deleted every thing but the drums and played our own instruments.

We hope you like it.

I apologize for not being on line and listening to others. My Internet computer with the good speakers is down right now but I hope to be back up and running in a day or two.

Enjoyed the song. It's a good listen for tonight here at home, it's rainy with thunder off in the distance, put's me in a mellow mood and this song fits right in.

I like what you did and more importantly, how you did it.

Some top notch playing by everyone.

I like the "bell-like" tone you got on the guitar and the chords.... nice quick little chord changes/progression going on in there right around :45 and some nice picking right there as well. Kudos!!

Thanks Bro for playing this one. "Few cocktails," I guess what's in them dictates the mood:)

I like the easy flowing groove.

Hi there Mario,
Relaxed and loungy we think.
JonD does a nice job on the Fender Rhodes. We wouldn't mind if he created a nice Fender Rhodes user track smile

Cheers!

I finally got all of our computers changed from XP to Win 7 Pro so I am back up and running.

I want to thank all for listening and the extremely kind comments. We really appreciate them.

FWIW Jon and I are planning on getting together soon and doing more music.

Hi Mario & JonD ...

loved that soft and easy and mellow sound. We do a lot of Lounge Jazz, Adult Contemporary and Sooth Jazz - this one is right up our alley! Loved everything about it! Smooth & mellow ... great music and performance. Kudos to both of you!

And FWIW, we're looking forward to your future collabs! Best to both of you ...

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.
