Hello everyone,

Something slightly different this week, a bluesy song.

You

This is partly Songsmith, partly BIAB.
The basis of the song was created in Songsmith with the 'Blue' style.
It was exported from Songsmith as wave and imported into BIAB on the audio track.
Next, the following real tracks were added:

BLSW_GS.STY (Blues w/ ElGuitar Solo (120 RS)
425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
751:Sax, Tenor, Soloist Jazz Ballad Sw 060 (Bluesy)
421:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Sw 120
BluesShuffleHard^4-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Busy Snare, Ride

Style used in BIAB:
BLSW_GS.STY (Blues w/ ElGuitar Solo (120 RS)

Hope you like it, and as always, comments are welcome!

Regards,
Rob & Anne-Marie


Lyrics:

You

Oh you, you... my lover, my fate
I want nothing but stay with you
For you, you, I'd give it all, I would
Is this what you want me to do?

'Cause once I dwelled out there
offering love gone bear
Immersing in happiness
Freedom loved, freedom lost
You're my lover, you're my killer, that's true

Oh you, you... my body, my faith
I shall not want, I shall go with you
Now you, you, my beacon, my prison
I couldn't walk the line without you

As we were riding high
Old lovers passing by
Wond'ring where they have gone
or did you slay them too ?
Be my lover, my killer, I owe you

'Cause once I dwelled out there
offering love gone bear
Immersing in happiness
Freedom loved, freedom lost
You're my lover, you're my killer, that's true

This is 50 shades of the Chris Issak sound. Playing this song through speakers brought my wife out from the other room and grab a door knob and start dancing the South Carolina state dance, The beach shag. Lot's of fun listening to your latest submission.

Hi Rob and Ann Marie.
This is absolutely gorgeous! So smooth. Wonderful stuff. Love the lead breaks. The video is also great. I had not heard of Songsmith before. Must look it up. Great work.

Rob and Anne Marie,

That was up to your usual high standard.
Enjoyed everything about it.

Good video; must show it to Dave, the massive spider in my garden shed, maybe we could become friends then. LOL

You are a music production machine and each song is excellent, professionally mixed etc.

Well done.

Alyn

R&AM, I always like anything with a bluesy side to it and this is no exception. I like the write, arrangement, vocals and mix. I do have a small nit. The Tenor sax sounds a little weird tone wise. It is probably just outside the acceptable limits of BPM as it is 60 and the rest of the tracks are 120. At first I thought it was a melodica or some type of a midi track. I actually had to look at the list to figure out what it was. A very small nit in an otherwise very enjoyable song. Tom

Another excellent tune. Lyrics, singing, harmonies, playing all first class. Some very striking visuals in the YouTube video..

Very nicely done!! Vocals sounded beautiful. Love the feel of the song. I thought the blues guitar solo fit perfectly. To me, there was something about the sax that felt too jazzy for the tune at times-certain notes just didn't match the mood. Great tune and mix!! Take care. Greg

Rob & Anne-Marie ...

It's hard to beat a Blues Shuffle in a minor key! And you did this one so danged good! It's a great song and your vocal is perfect.. The quality of your music is always the very best. This was a great listen. Loved the vocal harmonies on the chorus.

Superb song and production! best to you ...

Alan & Di

Very enjoyable listen. Love the bass and the lead.

Terrific vocals. Great feeling in them.

Hi Charlie,

We're glad we got your wife out of her chair, but we're clueless about the South Carolina state dance frown
We do know about 50 shades though.....
About Chris Isaak, our (probable) next contribution will really sound like him (says Rob) laugh

Thanks Joanne,

About Songsmith, it's a great program to improvise new songs.
Just sing, any tune, and the program will automatically create an arrangement to go with it. Better even, most BiaB styles are compatible with it. The program is also rather cheap. So I would definitely recommend it to you.

Rob

Thanks Alyn!

Now, how big is Dave really?
By the way, Rob would like to know if you've already used the z3ta for mastering your songs.

I loved it Rob and Anne-Marie. Almost a little Michael Buble swinging in there. Terrific sound. And those harmonies are gorgeous.

Okay I probably shouldn't admit that I just listened more than watched (sorry, I can't help it, spiders give me the creepie crawlies).

Chris Isaak is one of my favs so I'll be looking forward to that one too.

Thanks Tommy.
And yes.... it took quite an effort to get the right sax real track.
As a matter of fact we used 2 different tracks, the 745 Soprano in the middle of the song and the 751 Tenor at the end (you may have noticed that the soloist at the end consists of partly a guitar track and partly the tenor sax). Rob forgot to mention this grin

Great inspiration, thanks.

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
