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

I agree with Noel!

Super song, great vox, outstanding lyrics and backing tracks.

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.

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
