I have tried something new. I have normally written slower songs but this time I wanted to write something a little faster.

The name of the song is, "Jesus, He is Enough" - - -> http://www.box.net/shared/fnzecgz2ez

I hope you like it. I used all Real Tracks: (Except for the train whistle. It took a while to find one in the correct key)

Bass 538, Acoustic, Pop Sw 190 Byron House
Mandolin 611, Rhythm Fast Chop Sw 190 Jack Pearson
Guitar 374, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 190 Jason Roller
Guitar 376, Fingerpicking Hank Sw 190 Jason Roller
Guitar 946, Electric, Rhythm MemphisCleanShort Sw 190 Jason Roller
RealDrums, NashvilleBrushesClassicShuffle Sw 8 Brian Fullen

Those boys can really play!

The vocals are: my daughter Lauren, my music minister Paul & me.

Thanks for listening,
Steve

Steve, excellent song! It reminds me of an old Statler Brothers record - great stuff!

Hey Steve,
I really liked the song. Great vocals and excellent writing. The song had nice flow and had my foot tapping! Good work.

Hey Steve,
Took me right back to the old camp meeting dinner on the ground days of my childhood. You nailed it. Well done.

Bob, Danny, Marty & Josie,

Thanks for such great comments. I have never written anything in this style before so I really got out of my box on this one. It is really fun singing this style of music.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Wow!!! This is a brilliant song. You really have developed expertise in writing, performing and mixing. There's absolutely nothing that I'd change. Like Marty, my foot just wouldn't stop tapping.

All the best,
Noel

Take Care,

Bob said it - you've got the Statler Brothers sound.

I love the enthusiasm of the singing, and the "bass" line "He is enough" got me laughing each time, because the singer sounds like he's having a great time.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Noel, Greg & Dcuny, thank you guys for listening and for the nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Paul did the bass line "He is enough". He did not like it and wanted to redo it but I thought it was alright. We may redo it later.

Steve

Hi Steve,

You just found a "new" genre to add to your song list.
Isn't the software just great that it lets you try out all sorts of new genre styles.

You did a very good job with this song.
Kudos to all three of you, your daughter Lauren, your music minister Paul and yourself.

Best regards
Michee

I agree with Marty

I will add that I had a big smile on my face during the entire song.

EXCELLENT!

Michee, I love the peppiness and harmonies of the Bluegrass genre. However, with my limited instrumental abilities I would have never attempted it. BIAB RealTracks are absolutely amazing! I will relay your comments to the rest of the trio.

Mario, I am very pleased it put a smile on your face. I was hoping that everyone would enjoy listening to this song as much as we enjoy singing it.

Thank you,
Steve

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.
