I used BIAB to help make this demo of my smooth jazz composition, "Sunny and Cool".

I played the melody on Yamaha MO-8 using a jazz guitar preset.

I played the acoustic piano and piano solo using the Garritan JABB steinway jazz piano sound.

Live acoustic shaker.

Other synth and percussion sounds by MO-8.
The guitar solo is BIAB real track.

I used the following real tracks:


RealTracks in style: ~~903:Bass, Electric, SmoothCool Sw16 100
RealTracks in style: ~~906:Piano, Electric, Rhythm SmoothCool Sw16 100
RealTracks in style: ~~1073:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm SmoothJazzCool Sw16 100
RealTracks in song: 1306:Guitar, Electric, Soloist SmoothJazzCool Sw16 100 (Bluesy)
RealDrums in style: SmoothJazzCoolSw16^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride


DAW is Cubase.

Sunny and Cool

The vibe is Sunny and the music is very Cool!! Really nice work! Beautiful piano solo. It's great the way you created a melody out of the guitar solo stuff-must have taken some serious editing. Beautifully done! Take care. Greg

Thanks Greg, for checking it out! Actually, I wrote the melody, and played the melody on my keyboard.

I aspire to be able to compose something in this realm, but I know I couldn't hold a candle to what you've done here. It's so full and rich. And all of the layers draw you deep inside of this composition.

I have one huge complaint though - it ended way to soon. smile

I suppose I'll just have to give it another listen then.

Rob,

Enjoyable. Smooth. A great listen.

I don't know how you guys who do instrumentals like this have the patience for it - to get it all "just right".

Rob, smooth indeed, great playing and composition.
Floyd; speaking for myself, I can't sing, so I use my patience. LOL.

Loving this, its got a really rich sound to it, so smooth and golden. I'm a big Rippingtons fan and this reminds me so much of them.

Great stuff.

Thanks for sharing.

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!
