Funky City

This is the second song that I wrote during my two hour no student gap.

I used BiaB style City2-70s funky Soundtrack gro. I kept the bass, drums, and strings (changed to a B3) but I modified each to fit the song. The other tracks were deleted.

JonD is playing the backing horns via his keyboard MIDI controller.

I am playing the Flute via my wind controller. I copied and lowered the octave of the flute and changed that track to a Bari Sax. I am also playing the guitar part.

Let us know what you think.

Nice tune and the instruments worked well with your melody in this style.

Mario ... great stuff ... somewhere between Funky Disco and Motown. The horns are the perfect touch and you picking is great! Love all the breaks & syncopations. Killer tune! And that ending with the keys behind the horns was terrific. Best to ya ...

Thanx all for listening:

Charlie - thanx for the very kind comments.

Alan & Di - Thank you so much. I had to modify the BiaB tracks to add those breaks so I'm glad that you like them.

Greg - thanx for the very nice comments.

Mario,

Great mix on this!

Smokin' guitar, dude!

The bass is cool. Organ, too. you do such nice work with the controller! On Jon's horns are well done.

Very different. And very fun listen.

You are on a roll!

Thanx everyone for listening and the nice comments:

Guenter - thanx. I like those breaks also!

Floyd - coming from a great guitarist like yourself I really appreciate that smokin' guitar comment. That wind controller is still a work in progress.

Dani - thanx for that master comment but I am no master. I'm just a hacker that is trying to do a lot of stuff. Thank God that I can easily correct MIDI parts wink

Mike B - thanx so much. Every once in a while this ol' fart gets funky!

Robert - Ah no I don't want them to cancel. I need my money for my toys grin Thanx for the very nice comments.

Eric - thanx for commenting, I really appreciate the guitar comment.

Hi Mario,

Another great musical excursion. The bass guitar really captivated me. The horns were great, the lead guitar was awesome, and the wind instruments - well who'd believe that they're a wind controller (you really have the knack, now).

You convinced me. This is fun music!

All the best,
Noel

P.S. Loved the ending.

Cookin' tune. Great horns with convincing shaking except at just one point where the mod wheel was unmistakable. Good changes, very - very - hot guitar. Your wind controller - does it have the standard fingering system common to the saxes and flute? So you can play that thing? Impressive, man.

Great listen. Man, if I could sit down and produce all that by myself I'd be insufferable! Likely never exit our music room. Super guitar chops and the wind controller is amazing. Heartfelt kudos.

Thanx all who listened and commented:

Noel - thanx. I am not ready for prime time wind controller playing. What you hear is about 90% live and 10% edited. That's why I love MIDI, I can changed things!

Dean - Thanx. Actually there is no mod wheel used in the horns; the shake is built into one of the articulations. I have an Aria EWI-USB wind controller. It has a number of fingering options including both sax and flute. I use the modified trumpet fingering.

J&B - I spend a tremendous amount of time in my little studio, probably way to much time.

I really appreciate all of the very nice comments you all have given me.

Quite a productive 2 hours, you don't want students to not attend too often or the inspiration will slow down! And more importantly a man needs toys to play with grin

Hi Mario,

Very funky indeed!
This would do very nicely in a movie or documentary.
Another cool instrumental!

Regards,
Rob

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.
