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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
