My landscaping project has ended for this year and my home remodeling is in its final stages. So I had some time to work on my new computer and DAW as well as do a little recording.

"The Lady is Flowing" is a quick and dirty tune I wrote so I could start practicing my wind controller again; it’s been a long time since I picked it up! The song started in BiaB using the Bossa New Quartet style. I am playing the nylon string, 12 string and lead guitars as well as the wind controller. The bass and drums are BiaB.

I hope you like it for what it is.

Hey Mario! I loved the tune. I listened while I was eating breakfast. I've been trying all summer to get my grass to grow but it has been so dry this summer that all I did was keep it alive. I lost several Azalas from heat and drought even though I had a well. I replaced them and now I'm going to start all over. We had the worst drought on record.
I've gone through some home remodeling myself. New counter tops, new paint and new floors. I'm just rambling this morning but I really liked all of your song. occ

It is now the season of Sabres and musical landscaping.
How sweet it is! Easy on these shredded old ears of mine and "flows" it does.
Loved the guitar work - especially the partial chord leads - reminds me a touch of Earl Klugh whom I like even though I play in the country/folk vein - easy bossa leaves lots of spaces to "hear" the musicianship.

You play them all very well Mario.

Good luck to your guys in tonight's game in Ottawa.

Thanx OCC for the kind words.

Up here we have had an extremely wet spring and early summer, a fine summer but an extremely wet fall. Parts of our weather problems are due to lake effect, both Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. But I’m not complaining. I don’t have to shovel rain!

It is the season of hockey and to rib my Canadian friend who always roots for the wrong team

Unless things change radically I can tell you who will win tonight’s game between our teams. It’s a simple formula: Miller in goal = Sen’s win and Enroth in goal = Sabre’s win.

Thanx for the kind review.

As Mick says SMOOOOOOOOTH.
If I remember rightly you have an Ibanez Cimar 12 string. So I assumed that that was the 12 string and so tuned mine out of respect!!
Nice feel to the tune

Thanx Alyn for the kind review.

Nope, I have a Danelectro 12 string. I have found that if I plug my guitars into my Roland Micro-Cube then run the record out directly into my Roland Octa-Capture I can get a pristine guitar tone that is much better than either my V-Amp Pro or my J-Station amp modelers. That really put the shine on the 12 string.

Hi Mario,

Very very nice I totally agree with all the good things that have been said.

Regards,
Noel

P.S. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you about writing a song but work has thrown me a curve ball and I won't be free until about mid-December. I'll DEFINITELY be in touch then to see if you have any time available.

Thanx Noel!

Not to worry, as I’m as busy as busy can be right now. Hopefully I will also have some free time in mid December. However that is Christmas, family and party time so I might not be available until January.

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.
