Hey All,

Here's a new song Josie and I put together. This was produced with BIAB/RT's and was mixed in GarageBand. It's called "Long Time" - we hope you enjoy it...

"Long Time"

A black crow flying
In a trickle down rain
Every now and then
He'd fly my way again
See the lines in the road
Kick an old tin can
Got my mind on you
And my feet on the land

A white winged dove
On the edge of seventeen
One brave love of mine
Came to visit in a dream
I packed my bags
Take a journey with you
That sky between us
Fades from black to blue

Chorus:
Long time like a January song
Long time and far from home
Long time and cold to the bone
Long time

A snowbird high
On the evergreen
Shadows on the ground
And nothing in between
All those years ago
Had my eyes on you
Some things turn to gold
Or sing the church bell blues

Chorus: repeat

Bridge:
The seasons pass
Shadows into light
Time stands still
In the dark of night

Break

Chorus: repeat x2/end

Another great song from a great team.

Don't take this the wrong way, Bob, but when you first come in singing, I thought your voice had a very Stevie Nicks quality to it at first, but then became more Dylanesque afterwards. But then I heard the reference to Edge of Seventeen, s I don't know if you were channeling a little Fleetwood Mac in this song, or what.

I really liked it.

Hey John,

Thanks for your kind words. Josie and I really appreciate your support. Yes, the second verse gives a little nod to Stevie - so cool you picked up on that...

Hi Bob and Josie,

What impressed me most about this song were the harmonies, the chorus and the arrangement. I found myself singing along with the last chorus and I wasn't even conscious that I'd started doing it. That tells me you that you've got a good, strong hook happening. To my way of thinking, this is a top shelf effort whichever way I look at it.

All the best,
Noel

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.
