Good idea, Maybe I will list my BIAB-based FAWM songs this way, too. I probably won't have too much time to listen to many songs here this month because of FAWM, though.

Robert,

Everything you write continually amazes me. I tip my hat to you and the way that you chase songwriting with a tenacity that is exceptional.

I'm gradually working my through the above song list At the moment, I'm listening to "Beautiful Day In My Neighborhood". It's got my toes a-tappin'.

All the best,
Noel

I just listened to "I Cry." A perfectly lovely song, moving, convincing, melodic. Is see that you are getting better and better at practicing the "less is more" philosophy, more and more, (or is that less and less... I get so confused). I like the way you delayed bringing in the harmonies until later in the song... I might have jumped the gun, and overdone it, too early... (thinking "more is more.")

One quibble, your chord choice in the second line of the bridge sort of jarred me... but maybe it wasn't the chord itself, but the voicing.

Great work!

That rocks. I can eek out about one every two months. Just can't sit down and do it. I have to wait until a hook appears during a mountain bike ride or when kayaking. As others have said I much admire your tenacity.

Song 6 is a rock instrumental created in Ableton Live! I tried to add just a touch of reverb to the whole mix to give a sloshy sound. Appreciate all comments and suggestions!

Robert,

I am really enjoying your journey...

"Submarine" is COOL. You are showing some real talent for whatever that type of music might be called. And, again, a few words/phrases thrown "into the mix" would make it even cooler...

"12 Bar Wah Wah" - nice - heck of a job on the acoustic turned "electric" - a very "lyrical lead". Can't believe you did not put a "quick blues lyric" on top of that...

"I Cry" - I think this is the best thing you've ever done (at least what I've heard). Really well written song - great structure - nice, nice, lyric. Loved it - and loved the production...

Robert, you did the blues justice on this one.

Great chops also!

Hi Robert

I just listened to your song I Cry and had to say what a great song this is. Very almost seventies rock at the first verse Trex style with a country feel.

Please note this is a personal preference rather than a right and wrong, If this was my song I might try making the build into chorus "until the morning light" smoother perhaps drag it out over the 2 bar gap to build some tension before hitting the chorus.

But its a great song and has commercial potential.

Best Wishes

Darren

Here is song 8 my fawm challenge. This started out because of some notes I was playing on the guitar. I was picking out this just one note at a time and I thought this sounds like a job for super BAND in a Box, I have already shut off my computer so I will list the instruments used when I post my next song! Thanks to everyone for listening to the previous tunes and commenting, thanks!

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.
