Yeah... thanks.... this is totally a BB project.... I think there was 4 lead guitar tracks and I enveloped them in Sonar X1 to pick and choose the solo.

This is currently in the mail to a publisher which specializes in holiday music.

I thought the bass was a little heavy. Other than that cool idea and nicely done.

Very catchy song, good vocals and a really good use of RT's. I think it's a good mix too, except for 2 things.
I agree with Josie the bass is too hot, but not by much,... and, I just kept wishing the drummer would go to the hi-hat on the verses, I think it would add a nice dynamic level change. But then again you may have wanted the ride cymbal throughout... I'm sorta of the school of: hi-hat on verses and ride cymbal on chorus & solo's, so take that for what it's worth.

Good Job!

Greg

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!
