Hi, i have a new tune in the works. all band in the box music for now. i'll add my guitars later. it's experimental for me, using urban drum beats with classical piano. let me know if i'm way off the mark trying this. i'll be adding harmonies to the 2nd chorus too. gotta lil tweeks here and there, but i think i have main theme down. thanks in advance for checking it out. http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11748995

Good song, Robert. Lots of possibilities in there. The beats work fine, I just felt they needed more definition as well as the nylon guitar, some EQ and compression perhaps. I look forward to hearing some plaintive Gilmour-esk guitar work on this!
Your vocal as usual is spot on.

GREAT start! I really like the beat, chord progression, piano and the lyrics. Personally I think you voice is very strong and powerful so it doesn’t not need the echos. IMHO I think they detract from the vocal.

This should be dynamite when you are finished!

thanx guys, i just got done fixing harmonies and such. the delay was experimental, i backed it off on this latest cut, i might have mixed the vocals too loud, my ears are tired, but next is add the guitar work. stay tuned !

the combination of urban beat with classical piano works for me. Life is not easily segmented into niches the way music tends to be.

I like your songs... you seem to have a real feel for combining all the elements of a song into something that is enjoyable to hear. I have always enjoyed your playing on other songs, and I expect that when you add it to this one, I'll like the song even more.

Good job!

thank you very much pat ! i just added a guitar solo to it. i think that's all i'm going to as far as the guitar. the original guitar work clashes with the piano to much and i think this piece stands fine with out it. i added some strings to the mix following the bass. my ear is telling me to get them to follow the piano on the choruses to make it a little more dramatic. some experimentation is needed, i am new at working synths and midi. couple more weeks and it should be completed. one of these days i'm going to have to get the everything pak. BIAB is is a great way to burn up some hours.

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.
