Here is a little novelty song I've been playing around with. It still needs work but it's getting there. It's all realband various bits of different style instruments plus a couple of loops that seemed to fit nicely from a third party source.

It's about a fella who has a distinct liking for "Things" that come in "Two".

See what you think.

Hi Rob,

This is a very inventive song! A great listen. The Realband arrangement is a real credit to you. Sounded very professional to my ears.

All the best,
Noel

Hey toucher,

I like, what a fun song and well put together production.
Only one suggestion. I'd add some reverb to the mix to give the performance a bit of stage presence.

Tim

Thanks guys, it is still a work in progress somewhat, but if y'all like it I guess I'm on the right track.

Realtracks are a real treat to work with and give us so much flexibility. My midi sound sources are okay but not as good as the realtracks, and the human touch is also a factor.

Even the girls on some other forums seem to like this little fun poker.

Thanks for the input.

Thanks Paul,

It started in BB as most of my songs do, but they always end up in Realband. It just seems to be my preferred work flow. Appreciate the comment.

Hi Rob,
This is one fun song! I really like your lyrics and backing tracks.

In addition to Tim’s reverb suggestion I would also like to hear your vocal more up front. You have a good voice so showcase it!

Mario, Bob & Steve,

Thanks for the comebacks guys. Knowing how particular you all are with your tracks, its very gratifying to be complimented by you three. I gotta find time to get to a final or maybe final rework soon.

Can't get it to play, but I went to your Reverbnation, especially like "Forever is Forever"

Rob, very nice work and fun listen. I use a similar workflow plus Audacity. I'm still in the bottom of the learning curve with RealBand but I like it a lot.

Thanks for the listen.

Malcom, Val, SD and Don,

Thanks so much for the listen and comments, I also use Audacity from time to time after mixdown, to raise or lower overall mix, as well and occasionally insert silence with the silence generator etc. Mostly Realband does the work though.

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.
