So... here's a second effort. Most of this is BIAB - about 20 different RealTracks. With an acoustic guitar and electric guitar track added. Harmonies, again, by the BIABettes...

Forever's Not As Long As It Used To Be

Comments/suggestions welcomed......

Have at it.

Floyd

Hi,

From beat 1 it was outstandingly obvious that you're a professional in this genre. What a great song, great arrangement and brilliant sound! Very impressive.

You've certainly raised the bar for what is possible with BIAB!

All the best,
Noel

You are a pro!

Like it a lot! Good story, what I call "turnaround" style with the hook both starting and ending the chorus. Nice lines, story flows.

Is that BIAB or RB?

Excellent job on the BIAB stuff -- nice mixing and production, too! I enjoyed the whole thing. Dang, I tried to find something to complain about (ha, ha) -- couldn't!

There's a lot to like here and I especially like how you hold out "looonnnngggg" - nice touch.

Good song, mix, arrangement. It's all been said.

And you've really got those BIABettes working for ya - some people have had a little trouble getting them to sound that good as they can be an ornery bunch..LOL!

Well done Floyd.

Very nice production work. The lyrics are excellent, they cry ballad to me. If I could suggest, try slowing the song down and making it more of a tender ballad. Your vocal and mastering process was flawless. Ballad or not it is still great work! Thanks for sharing!

My PC won't play it either. I get a popup saying 'Install Quicktime' but I've already got Quicktime installed?? Is there another link I can use?
Thanks.

eddie - the tracks are, of course, BIAB. I do my mixing in Acid Pro.

Kevin - appreciate the listen. I guess in this case, I'm glad to "disappoint ya".

Josie, Tommy, PgF - thanks for the encouragement... as for the BAIBettes, I find "them" quite easy to deal with. Much simpler than using my old Studio Vocalist.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
