Wow! That is powerful and must have
been difficult to experience the
production of it. Very touching and
an amazing vid.
Rest in peace.

Fred,

This is truly lovely.

The performance and production and mix are excellent.
But, much like Tom's song (Who I Once Was), the message here is so very much more important that talking about that other stuff.. seems so very unimportant, insignificant.

A wonderful, wonderful tribute - filled with love.

You brought a tear to my eye.
That has to be a hard thing to share. But I'm glad you did.

Truly lovely.

floyd

Lovely, Meditative, melancholy, vivid (I did not watch the video).

Wonderfully mixed with depth of sound and mood.

much enjoyed!

Josie, Gofby, Greg, Janice, Bud, Tom, Rec, Floyd, Gruverider, Slava, Herb, Trevor, Charlie, Robert, Richard,Guenter, Rob, Anne Marie and Josie,

You are all lovely people!
This forum has some fine musicians, composers. But what makes it really special is the emphatic abilities of you all!
You go above and beyond your role as audience, musician, sounding board. I thank you all for your kind comments.

Yes, I had a hard time writing this song and putting together this video, but I felt it had to be done, especially to those left behind.

Thank you all, moving on!

Fred

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!
