This is an original french song recorded with Biab bossa RT mixed with two ukuleles (a vintage baritone one and a "modern" soprano other) and several tracks of voices
au fil de l'eau

Let me know your felling and opinion about it.

Je l'ai bien aime.

Tres cool, une puex longue peut-etre?

Des fois la voix est trop faible, et it me semble que la voix devrait etre de l'avant dans 'le mix'.

Bien fait.

Théodoros,

Merci d’avoir partagé cette compo.
Il y a beaucoup de réflexion dans les paroles.
Aussi j’aime bien tes choix de batterie.

Une bonne structure, pas de temps mort ni d’interlude musical superflu.

Mais je ne trouve ni la progression ni la mélodie très remarquable.
Avais-tu un autre choix de mélodie dans les versions précédentes?
Celle-ci me semble un peu basse pour ta voix (dans les couplets).

A 2:37 il y a une baisse quasi-totale dans l’intensité de la voix - problème de respiration?

Enfin, je trouve le mix un peu chargé partout et notamment après 1:47.

Marc



Théodoros,

Thanks for sharing this piece.
I can see that a lot of thought went into the lyric.
I particularly like the drum choices you made.

The structure is solid and I like the fact that there are no pointless solos/interludes.

But I don’t thing the chord progression and melody really do justice to the lyric.
Was there an alternative melody that you tried out in earlier versions?
This one in particular seems to be a bit low (in the verse section) for your voice.

At 2:37 the singing almost cuts out altogether – breathing problem?

Finally, to my ears the whole thing is just a little too busy, especially so after 1:47.

But these are only my humble views and bossa is not really my thing !

Marc

I like the chord sequence (simple and effective), the structure (very natural and logical), the melody, and the arrangments. On the "negative" side, I find that maybe the key is just too low for your voice, that the voice could be better more "inside" the mix, and that the ending is a little bit abrupt.

Just minor details. Overall, a very nice song in my opinion. Congratulations

Smooth backing track and ukes and the vocal has a good timbre to it. Pretty cool. Needs a hot uke solo (ha, ha). Good one! Nice increase in dynamics at ~1:47. Sounds "pro" to me.

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.

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.
