I found another one of those Remix Contests this week... seems most people submit Rave/Club type entries - not my cup-o-tea honestly. So, for this one I tried to work up a bit of that famous Muscle Shoals sound - I don't think I got there but it is a lot different than the original artists track. For your amusement ;-)

Citizens - Made Alive (Shaved Shoals Remix)

Everything except the vocals was done in Real Band;

Trap: RD Blues Rock Even ^1
Bass: RT 909 Elec Blues Pop
Guit: RT 1718 E.Rhythm Texas Blues (Brent)
H-B3: RT 673 Hammond B3 (BB Background)
EPno: RT 2157 Vintage Funky Groove
TSax: RT 403 Tenor Motown 60's...

Well, there you have it... a hot mess in some areas. ;-)

Here's a link to the Original composition for comparison;

Cheers!
Don

Hey Don, you did a good job here. Good choice of instruments and a good mix.

Thumbs up, I love the variety of music folks are doing with BIAB.

I like your version much, much more than the original.

Thanks for the feedback! I've submitted it as-is. While I don't think the production value is quite the same as the original I'm still amazed every day about how much we can accomplish with just BIAB & RB.

I know lot's of folks are pining for 64-bit DAW's and plug-ins and oodles of memory... I guess I just don't need them for most of what I'm trying to accomplish as a Producer / Arranger. Most of my RB mixes are almost totally dry anyway.

I suppose if I were a better player trying to improve my chops or were looking to PG for Pro-Tools type functionality I'd have a beef. IMO, they have a perfect niche as-is... why complicate a fairly robust tool with bolt-ons most of us will use infrequently, if at all?

Again, thanks for the feedback, yielding the soapbox ;-)

Cheers,

Don

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
