Very catchy, very imaginative! I love all the funny noises, twists and turns.
If there were BIAB guitar and bass in there you must have put them through the wringer. The key change at 2:26 is downright bizarre, but works and that's all that matters!
Great track.

Very cool and unique use of BB/RB in a song.

Was that lead guitar at 1:48 to the key change a BB/RB guitar?

The modulation was kinda weird. Like not everything changed together. The bass was the last to go up. I'd clean that part up and make it sound professional. Anybody listening will say "WHAT?" right there.... everything else is so well done...

All in all a really cool and hip song. I could hear this being recorded or used in a movie once you fix the modulation.

Love this song.

I liked this a lot. Very good vocal. Much different than most things posted here. I thought the modulation was really cool although unexpected. Great track! Tom

I haven't been here for a while, and this is the first time I've seen you here. If you're actually new, then "WELCOME to the forum!" (If you've been here for a while, then "Nice to meet you!")

that song was exactly what I like to hear from members of this user showcase! It was the perfect example of how somebody can take the same tracks the rest of us have, and do something totally fresh with it!

Hi there,

yes, very original!
Haven't heard something like this before on the forum.
Like the modulation in the third part of the song.

Regards,
Rob

NB: Brents soloists zijn verreweg de beste!
Benieuwd naar je verdere nummers.

Well, that was different! Not my style of music but damn!!!
A very hypnotic beat.
The more I listen, the more I like it.
The line "you break my heart" repeats in my brain now; a sign of a good song.

Well done

Alyn

To be repeated in someone's brain is a songwriters wet dream!

I have to agree this has kind of a Talking Heads vibe to it, but only slightly. The kind of electronica feel took me back to the 1980's definitely without feeling old or tired. It is a truly enjoyable listen and a change from most of the styles I have heard on this forum. Very well done. I notice the modulation, but notice anything bad about it at all. I may not have as experienced an ear as others though. All in all I thought it was enjoyable and well done.

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!
