Electric Popland

Here is a small instrumental track I wrote in 2009. I think it is a very nice example to showcase the versatility of Band-in-a-box. Most of the tracks are MIDI instruments from the styles STR_QT44, ORKMED44, Ork448, Mozart and -TEKRA0+.STY. Only realtrack used is #479 Trumpet. RealDrums TechnoRadio.

I have used 3-7 layers of instruments to play the melody and then at one point you can even hear my voice through a vocoder effect smile

Mixed in Adobe Audition (I think I used version 3.0 at that time).

Janne

Hi Janne,

That sure sounds complete and "full" considering it's mostly midi tracks (not sure if that is correct English), especially the base kick.
Are you using a soundfont or a special midi synth?
Let us know, we're interested.
Well done!

The subject title says it all.

Great driving beat throughout. I liked it.

Hi Janne,

I like this a lot! The RT trumpet sits very well in the mix... I also like the way you've developed the progression. It remains interesting throughout.

The use of recurring themes really adds cohesiveness to the project... very easy to listen to!

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie! If I remember correctly, I used Coyote Forte DXi for all MIDI instruments. Although I cannot rebuild the original mix (version incompatibility), I can see that I used both multi-band compressor and hard limiter on drums and bass.

Thanks Pat for your kind comment. The Techno RealDrum has so many variations that it is easy to keep some interest through the song.

Janne,

BEAUTIFUL
very reminiscent of the synth works from the late 1908's

I loved that era so this is a very,very enjoyable listen

I see you playing this on stage, wearing a cape, surrounded by lots of synths with the smoke machine going. grin

I look forward to more

Alyn

Very cool Janne!! Cool music and cool sound. I could hear this as a film score-heard a few 007 changes in one part. Love the trumpet. Excellent job! Take care. Greg

PG Music News
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.
