Hi to all!
I am a old Band in a Box user, from the Atari only midi times. After upgrade to 2011 version I am everyday more happy with this marvellous tool for music creation. Thanks PG music!!!
I want to share in this great forum the first recording I made using realtracks. I create one chord progression, play & rec. Is a improvisation, only one take, with mistakes, but for me is a good demo on how Band in a box help us to quickly capture an idea for a song.
Electric Guitar, realtracks and some efx added on Cubase.
I hope you like (and sorry for my english)

I totally agree with others - a big +1.

I do like your style of play - it reminds me of Earl Klugh my favourite jazz guitar player.

Well done - Ian

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

I take it from the other comments that you are playing the guitar... is that correct? If so, nice job! Your tone and style merge perfectly with the backing tracks you put together

My only observation (personal preference actually) is that I'd have liked to hear the guitar drop out briefly while another instrument or two filled in. No matter how good an artist plays his instrument, ear fatigue starts to set in after about two verses.

Hi Pat, perhaps is not clear in my post. The song is not a finished song, is only a not edited long solo over the chords changes, searching for melodics ideas for the song. For finish I will add (I suppose) a B part and some arrangemment for add other colors and avoid fatigue.

I do not agree in the limit of only two choirs of solo.
One of the influences of jazz is freedom to do long solos that allow the development of the creativity of the musician. Of course fatigue depends on the quality or the inspiration of the soloist.
I never get bored with long solos from Pat Metheny, Larry Carlton, Bil Frisell, John Coltrane and many others, ... off course they are geniuses.

Thanks for your interest

Rafa, you can play all night as far as I'm concerned, loved it. You would get finger fatigue before I get ear fatigue.
I like the way you use BiaB to underline your playing, realy smooth.

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

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.
