Hi All,

Well here it is:Dance With me in Orkney

It is different from other songs I have written as I used a RealStyle that I made myself (see Song Summary below)

If you feel your feet tapping don't blame me HaHa

Lyrics

Come with me to Orkney
Green Islands in the sea
A timeless place awaits you
And tomorrow you'll be free

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

A new day here in Orkney
Will fill your heart with peace
You can be quite certain
Your cares and worries all will cease

Instrumental

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

Sing the songs of Orkney
Hear the fiddles Play
Watch the seabirds soaring
And toss all your cares away

Instrumental

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

Come with me to Orkney
Green Islands in the sea
A timeless place awaits you
And tomorrow you'll be free

Thanks in advance for taking a listen.

Regards
George

Great Dance beat, would never had dreamed it could fit
this type of song.

The lyrics are simple but fit the song great.

My monitor system Sub is a bit hot, maybe tiny bit lower
on bass/drum.

Fun music, can just see groups of folks with beers in hand
dancing about.

I've only been to U.K. one time, Upper Heyford, Cambridge doing the
pub rounds. then 36 hours in London. Just a tease. 1965, just few years
ago.

Thanks for sharing your neighbors lyrics, and your hard work!

Hi Seeker,

I wanted to write a song that was out-with my normal scene.
I wanted people to dance and have fun.
I know that the bass and drums are a little hot, but, isn't that what is popular today?

Anyway, I thank you for your comments.
If you ever get to Scotland you will enjoy your visit (no need to go on pub crawl)

Best regards
George

George,

That is true. I have kicked up bass in my songs after
listening to a lot of others wit heavy bass.

It is a great fun and dance song, hope you can play it at one
of your pubs.

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.
