This is a song I did using RealTracks/RealDrums and the AKAI EWI USB with the Garritan Jazz Tenor.

Loved it!

You have that EWI USB down pat! That is the best Garritan Tenor I’ve ever heard! Super job.

Two thumbs up.

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

Thanks for the comment dcuny!

It is easier than you might think. The Aria player and the Garritan sounds that come with it are really first rate and well programmed for the EWI. It takes a bit of practice, but I have gotten good at sax, trumpets (horns), flute, clarinet, and even .... violin. I played a 5:25 minute piece with no rests using circular breathing with the EWI, and it was surprisingly easy to learn (took about 3 weeks).

Anyways, think of it this way, you can learn violin or sax while using headphones... your friends will love you for it :-)

Nice job Jim!
Nice to see another another wind controller player here.
I'm curious about which style that is?

Yes, I would like to know which RealTracks were used, and which RealDrum style.

Hi Mick and Matt,

Thanks for listening. The real tracks/drums used were:

RD: SMOOTHJAZZCOOLSW16^1-XSTHHT,SNRD :
~902: Bass, Electric, SmoothCool Sw16 075, Vernon Barbary
~904: Piano, Electric, Rhythm SmoothCool Sw16 075, Jeff Lorber

I mixed the tracks in Sonar where each instrument track had its own reverb settings and the drums went through a bit of compression to get that "close in" feel. The mix settings had a big impact on the feel of the tracks.

Jim,

Very, very nice work here! Nice relaxing song, very well executed. I agree with Mario, the tenor sounds very realistic. And a good mix to boot!

I'm impressed.

Soft on the ear. Nice arrangement. Is this an original? Love the horn runs!

Thanks Pg,

This is a fairly standard chord progression, but the Sax melody/runs are all original. So in some sense it is an original tune.

I was really surprised how nicely the Sax mixed in with the RT/RD with just a touch of Reverb and Drum Compression to get a nice mix out of this. Also, the EWI USB with the Garritan sounds are nice matchup. This was all played without any MIDI editing.

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.
