Hi everyone,

Over the past few years, I have been using BIAB mostly as a learning tool - practicing by playing along to progressions, and so on. However, I decided over the weekend to experiment with exporting Realtracks to my DAW and then playing a melody/solo over top of it with my guitar.

The result is a slow gypsy jazz ballad. You can find it on my YouTube channel here:

Ah, I just noticed the list of items from Peter Gannon that I'm supposed to post with the song. Here they are:

- Title: "Dao's Gypsy Ballad"

- Backing tracks generated by RealTracks, lead guitar played by me.

- The RealTracks used (from memory, since I don't have the file on the computer I'm using at the moment) are:
Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110
Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladGonzalo Sw 110
Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110
However, I can't remember which drum track I used.

- Other programs used in the production:
Reaper Digital Audio Workstation
Native Instruments Guitar Rig 4
iZotope Ozone 4 (mastering plugin)

- Effects used in production:
No effects on the RealTracks. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig 4 on the guitar, with a simple Twang Reverb amp emulation and some rack reverb after the mic.

Very nice arrangement and your guitar work is very clean and professional sounding, reminded me of Martin Taylor. I hope to hear more

Thanks Sinbad. I'm not familiar with Martin Taylor, but I will go check out his stuff on your recommendation.

Nice job Brett!

Gotta ask: what guitar did you play?

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

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.
