This is a little song I wrote with the image of South Texas, it's many bars and Cantinas and all of their colorful patrons in mind. Of course I not only hope you enjoy the music, but the story as well.

It's called My Black Haired Beauty

As always thanks for your time to listen and comment as well.

Later,

Nicely done. Reminds me of Jimmy Buffett if he hung out on the border.

Nicely done, Danny. And quite clever. Great use of the "mex" tracks. And a really nice mix. Guess that would be mex-mix.

I would say it sounds like a cross between Jimmy Buffett and Randy Newman (which is a pretty cool combination).

Yeah man! Great to hear something with those border tracks. Seemed like an "Island-Mex" sound to my ears.

Well done.
I like the mex style (and dogs, too).

austin51,

Thanks for the listen, and Jimmy has been known to drop in from time to time.

Floyd,

Thanks for the kind words and time to listen.

90db

Gracias . . . and have another on me.


Mootsman,

Thank you man and I too love those mex tracks, just a bit difficult finding the right trumpet track to go with them, I almost got it with this one but still not to my liking.

Guenter,

I appreciate the listen time and comments as well, and for what it's worth That Black Haired Beauty does belong to me.

Thanks to all,

You really had me going there Danny. Fun song and creative writing. I enjoyed it very much and the Tex Mex feel.

Thanks Josie . . . I had you there for awhile didn't I? You should have seen the look on my wife's face after she heard only the 1st two chorus!

Loved it Danny!

This song sounded like a Marty Robbins song to me! Great job on this one.

I think your problem with the trumpets is that you are looking for a Mariachi band sound with two trumpets playing. That is the first thing I thought of as you have pictures of a Mariachi band. Just my thoughts good buddy.

You know just what I was thinking . . . sometimes you just have to make lemonade when handed a lemon. Not that the trumpet track is a lemon, and I was always told never eat/suck a lemon in front of a trumpet player. I wonder why? But I digress . . . again.

PS: I still love that version of Teach Me Tonight we did together a few years back.

Thanks man,

Hi Danny,

Please add "+1 and then some" to all the above compliments. This was a great song to listen to. I've gotta hand it to you, you've got a really clever way with words. I admire your ability. I'm learning lots from you as listen to your work.

All the best,
Noel

Great song! I loved the trumpet.

And it sounded great through the cheap laptop speakers I'm currently using, which says a lot about the mix.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Danny,

Outstanding!!! The story really pulled me in. And living just outside of San Antonio, the music sounded familiar.

Very cleverly written, and the mix and overall "sound" is right on. Your vocals really fit the song too.

Other than all the above, though, I really like the song!

Steve

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
