My third contest submission in the jazz category has remained virtually unnoticed.
For those who didn't get a chance to listen, and would like to ;-) here it is:

Strange Delight

Further specifics about the song can be found in the original post here

Thanks for listening, and feel free to comment.

"But now you're feeling unsure
Could this possibly lead to something more
You remember times you turned away
From every inviting gaze
But how strange this feeling of being together

Lay it down just play it wise
Love all over you
Whatever you'll find
It's such a strange delight"

A strange delight, indeed, Rob... Well penned - a very interesting lyric. I enjoyed your "theatrical" vocal (especially like what you did on "delight...."

The guitar solo is really nice!

I understand that the horns are part of the style you used, but I thought they distracted from the song/lyric - they "pulled my ear away".

You are one heck of a writer. And so very prolific!

Rob,

This is very different from your usual presentation. I like it! It's great how BIAB can unlock the doors that lead to diverse genres. Like floyd, I was captivated by your singing of "delight". Very cool work!

All the best,
Noel

Thank you Floyd!

About the horns, yes they were part of style, thought I'd leave them in.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the jazz soloist. Haven't used it before, nor heard. This one's probably also very usable in standard pop solos.

Thanks again,
Rob

Really interesting song - great vocal. I agree it has quite a theatrical feel to it (picked up some Neil Diamond like timbre in the vocal as well).

Nicely done.

Hi Rob,

Cool song, vocal and guitar solo!

Your vocal was reminiscent of Neil Diamond and worked very well. What a range you have too!

Nice one!

Cheers

Rob this is fantastic. I really like the rhythm guitar as it glues everything together. Your vocal is great as are the lyrics. All of this mixed to perfection!

Two thumbs up

As usual, Rob prepared to work to the very edge of everything, working his musical genius
Like a chef putting together something new, the utilization of different instruments here on its own is a delight , all blended within some very interesting lyrics, it’s the cherry on the top.

Rob, Great vocal. You're right that guitar solo would be very useful in a pop song. I enjoyed it. Tom

Thanks Receder!
Definitely cool to be compared to Neil Diamond's Sound. I have to say those high-pitched parts took some work ;-)

Well, that about covers it!

You are one multifaceted artist. The write, production and vocals on this production are quite the outlier from a lot of your productions but, man, does it all every work. Excellent. And thanks for introducing that guitar RT solo...lot of possibilities there!

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.
