I try my best not to get into other people’s business. But if you are a true friend sometimes you have no choice and then you might end up with the blues. All comments / suggestions welcome. Tom

I Thought You Ought To Know


Well I know that you’re in love with her

I know you’ve made some plans

But i thought I ought to tell you this

Man to man

I saw her at the club last night she was with some other guy

I think that she’s back on that stuff she looked a little high

I guess that’s just the way it goes

And I thought you oughta know


I warned you all about her i said she’d bring you down

She’s got a reputation as trouble in this town

I hate to see this happen but it’s a cold hard fact

It just won’t work out for you she can’t clean up her act

I guess that’s just the way it goes
And I thought you oughta know ©2015 Thomas Adams

Hey Tommy.
Don't normally like long intro's but this was a great lead in to your excellent vocal.
Great blues feel.
You nailed it.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tommy,

that's blues at its best! Your voice and guitar make it special.
I like that live ambience you mixed in.
You chose a very nice sax and piano.
An over all enjoyable listen (not only one)!

Great track, Tommy.

Liked everything, but particularly your guitar work - superb blues playing.

A nice live feel to the band, enhanced by the audience participation.

Just very professional all round.

'Bout as good as it get.

Dang cool intro. Just the right touch of everything. Should be a BIAB commercial... "Is it real.. or is it RealTracks?..."

Excellent write. A blues song with a story....Nice.

Good vocal. This fits you well.. I really like that reverb on ya...

Guitar = Tasty, tasty, tasty. Dripping with feel... maybe my favorite of your leads... S W E E E E E T!!!

The mix is IMPECCABLE.

'Bout as good as it get. I thought you ought to know....

Tommy,

Outstanding write and recording!

The crowd sound effects sold me on the idea that you had recorded "I Thought You Ought To Know" live at a club even though I knew better from reading your notes prior to listening. The illusion worked until the end of the sax solo. The crowd noise begins and ends too abruptly after the solo.

Herb, I played many years in a country band and I insisted that we mix in some blues. The hard core country guys were totally against it at first, but in the end I won them over. Hope I can do the same here. Thanks for the kind words. Tom

- excellent use of sound effects
- very effective use of RT's

We probably missed a few...just a

Guenter, As I was mixing, I kept thinking it sounded like something you would hear in a small club. So I tried to find some crowd noise to fill it out. Thanks, Tom

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.
