The ringer announcer yells "GET READY TO RUMBA"

I am so far out of my comfort zone on this one it’s impossible to measure. I have played around with this chord progression for sometime now but this is the first time I tried to put a lead line to it.

I’m playing my wind controller (sax), nylon string guitar (rhythm guitar), jazz box (lead guitar) and bass (guess which part). The rest is Band-in-a-box with a few modifications as follows:

Style – L_Rumba3
1-bass and guitar tracks deleted and replace by me-see above
2-piano-virbatim except for the piano leads. Those were from super midi track 20787-piano,Rhythm BoleroMelodic EV 090. I thought that this made a very nice lead piano part for this song.
3-drums – Realdrums=Rumba^3-Brushes,Ride. Yes Mario can and does use RealDrums when they fit the song perfectly as this did IMHO.
4-strings – verbatim. I copied the track and lowered one tracj by one octave. I then used two different string patches to get the sound I wanted.
5-leads – played by me – see above

This is a one day wonder but I hope you like it for what it is.

Mario -

Love the jazz box. I love music that takes me places.

I'm sitting in a sidewalk cafe on the Malecon, sipping a dark rum and enjoying a Montecristo No. 4, listening to the beautiful music of the mysterious gringo as the waves crash against the seawall.


Regards,

Bob

Mario:

Very appropriate use of PG styles and tracks, and nice guitar as well. Was "convincing," is my word... I almost could feel the ocean breeze... and taste the rum.

Nice tune Mario. I liked the piano lead and everything else. Only thing I would have added is the Bolero style conga drums.
Good work though.

Mario - it's beautiful. I'm always impressed by how many things you "add".

Not sure if I've ever thought this about a song, but as it played, I just kept thinking...

"Romantic".

Hey Mario!

I haven't had too much time recently and, as a consequence, I nearly missed this one. I'm glad I didn't

You said ...

Quote:

I would NEVER have picked that from listening. My left and right ear completely agreed with each other that this was wonderful music. Floyd used the word, "romantic". I agree! You sound so smooth on your wind controller these days that it's always a pleasure to listen to you perform with it.

All the best,
Noel

Was that "sax player" on the big horse??
Why all the airspace, and so I had a flashback as I was listening to him:

I recall sitting on a club bar stool, anticipating the next set when I'd hear Mr Stan Getz "do his thing"...then I glanced to my left, and there on the next one was "THE MAN", HIMSELF!! (taking a break from his last set, staring straight ahead..sort of tranced out on booze and who knows what else?)
Mistakely, I thought...what's this guy gonna do when he gets back on stage! ?! Well he got up soon after, and played the most sophisticated, sensual set I had ever heard him do...

Had my eyes squeezed shut whenever "your" saxplayer" made me doze off!!
..Guess I have still got
"Getz Syndrome".

Please get some cats ike Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, and Chet Baker soloing on your beautiful Love Tune!!
Hey Brother...just been pulling your leg..kidding you, of course!!!

Hey Stan, ...over here!!!

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.
