First post in a little while; have worked on some other folks songs. The first verse and part of the chorus came to me all at once. I sat down the other day and finished it. It is in the key of C

Robert,

I was out for a couple weeks and missed this one! Very nice song. Good message. As to the mix, I could not hear the bass at all. I am listening at my office on buds (not the kind you drink - the kind you put in your ear! ) Also, the music break near the end is a little abrupt.

But again, a good song!

Steve

Hi Robert,

Every time I hear your latest song, what strikes me most is how professional sounding your work has become. This one is no exception. Your writing continues to flourish and each song pushes that proverbial "bar" higher and higher. Really enjoyed the listen.

All the best,
Noel

Robert,


Powerful song and story, and so true.
My brother lost his life to drugs at 19. What a sad waist.

Tim

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!
