I edited/created a Melodist for this style.

Style is _WSWING5.STY (WesternSwing Piano Solo [165RS])
I used John's piano as melody adding Fiddle for Soloist.

Think this would be good dance music.

Did a lot of EDIT>AUDIO EFFECTS>Gain Changes, 3 different
fade-ins, and 2 gains just on intro. Then the abrupt changes
between melody and soloist, cut small piece on the piano leading into soloist,
and quick fade-in for fiddle, also did quick fadeout for fiddle.
Ending had silence clipped, but regular instrument endings. Also dropped drums/bass
down to minimum level during solo.
I know telling a whole story in one sentence.....

I welcome comments for this song!

Frank,

This sounded terrific.

I love the use of the various instruments and swing/jazz touches that are going on here. I must get into the jazzy side of things at some point...

Great Stuff, Man!

Mike,

Thank you very much....But this is not actually Jazz, albeit sounds like it to me
also its the style design..
Style is _WSWING5.STY (WesternSwing Piano Solo [165RS])
I did add the soloist and some other simple changes, but its how the style sounds.
Felt the same way, Jazzy.
But with the beat folks could dance up a storm.

Western Swing is Redneck Jazz, sounds great Frank! I use to record a Western Swing band for a weekly radio show, and they sounded almost like this! Love It!

Bob,
Thanks for your generous comments. Was surprised
when auditioning the style. Then created the Melodist
to help create songs. Like its danceable aspect myself.

Tommy,

The song surely does have its jazz aspects as I mentioned to Bob.
Thank you, appreciate it coming from and "Ole" pro like you.
Notice I DID NOT say "Old".

Compliments to PG and their staff for their great style creation.

Sweet! I used to listen to and play a little western swing but haven't explored the BIAB possibilities. Every thing works well to my liking.

Nifty piece! I liked your selections for the soloists...very comfortable, makes-you-mile kind of music.

One comment, I'd spiff up the ending a bit..I wanted more!!

Mootsman, Tano,

Sweet and Nifty, sound like title for a new song.

Style like the "Old" days.

Andy's Fiddle RT seemed to fit, so used it.

Thanks for compliments from both of you!

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.

(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:

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.
