Hi All,

Here's a song I wrote in September of 2001. It was originally recorded with just a guitar and featured on a Martin Guitar Forum compilation CD in 2003. I decided to re-recorded it with BIAB/RT's - thanks for listening.

He felt the breath of the devil
Over his right shoulder
He took her in his arms
To comfort and hold her
When the lights went dark
They were neither nor weak
They became new residents
The ghosts of Vesey Street

As the brother's stood tall
Through the fire and smoke
Some lept into the sky
And some took the last boat
Daniel gazed out the window
Couldn't rise from his seat
He became the next member of
The ghosts of Vesey Street

As the last phoenix pierced
The heart with no pity
The brother's laid down
With their friends in the city
And they'll never forget
The fate they did meet
But they're still standing tall with
The ghosts of Vesey Street

Now the days grows still
But for the churches bell
It's the sound of separation
From Heaven and Hell
Yes the city that cries
But does not sleep
Hope and faith walk forever with
The ghosts of Vesey Street

I would re-do this one. The RT fiddle hits a bum phrase at 0:10 and the vocal entry seems mighty rushed. It just seems a little out of synch to me.

Nice work. Sounds like a Springsteen toon. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds great to me, good composition. Fiddle sounds nice, and I dig the percussion too. Lyrics are well written, and I have to say I really enjoy your vocal! Very nice quality to your voice. It does have a bit of a Springsteen vibe happening as mentioned above. My wife is enjoying it too

Hello Robert,

This has a nice "live" sound to my ears. The only advice I have is to pan your instruments so they have a "stage" presence. It sounds like everything is dead center to my ears.

I usually set up like this: B -20,D-0,P25,G-30,S+30 as a starting point. It depends on which RT's I am using. I like to separate the Rhythm Guitar on one side and the Picking Guitar on the opposite. Just to give some room for each instrument placement.

Your song was great and the mix was fine. I know writing one is a gift and I wished I had that gift.

Trax

Definitely sounds better to me (unless I was wrong the first time around -- ha, ha). Good write and performance.

This sounds great. I like your voice and the lyrics are super. Great soundscape and mix as well.

Two thumbs up.

Bob,

This song is a bit dark for my personal taste but it's well done for the genre. The mix to me has an almost mono vibe which gives it a retro feel.

Josie, thanks. So glad you picked up on that vibe - that's exactly the sound I was trying to achieve.

BTW, check your PM.

Hi Bob,

This is good work. You've got an excellent voice for this genre. I really enjoy listening to you sing. To my ears, the mix was just right.

Regards,
Noel

Well written song and well produced. I like the way you use the biab track which is similar to what I would do. Only nit is and maybe this is the way you want it , but I had to google Vesey Street to understand it was about 9/11.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
