Clicketyclick: Sold to the Devil (PS posted a newly mastered version July 27th)

Xtra Styles 3 contest or not; when i heard the _REYNOSA.STY immediately some lyrics i penned years ago popped up, all about a feller i met. Nice guy BTW, playing keyboard in nightclubs and, for a not to be named here, rich preacher owned local reli-organization holding mass sessions in an old Cinema building.

Reworked the lyrics to a 3/4 beat, and i experimented a bit with a borrowed Voicelive Rack, this inspired by Bob Buford, to create a church crowd type choir background here.

Sold to the Devil © Artspurg 2004-2017 SABAM

For ages and ages, he played his guitar
On smoky rough stages, and real evil bars
Not really that good, he didn't get far
Then he saw the Light, became a big star

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No más sufrimiento; una vida so bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So well respected; the money and gold
Riding a Benz, owns a gold-top of old
Those chicas bonitas, so many around
He saw the Light, oh boy he was found

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No more to endure, a life that shines bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So come and join Jesus, walk in the Light
Start praying in public, smile and shine bright
All this good money, when you make a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band



The style source used _REYNOSA.STY makes it to be probably be filed in the Country dept, though it's more of a folksong IMO.

The BIAB realdrums did not workout alas, regarding the snare counts. This since the arrangement is not actually 3/4, but sometimes has 6/4, maybe even 9/4 measures included. The guitars are BIAB, the great accordion playing & atmosphere too, and bass is BIAB. The latter i had to steer by inserting chords with added bass notes, see picture below. And then added quite a bit of melodic juice. Hopefully it tears down some planned Trump-walls down south (Oops, could'nt resist, being a Bernie fan).

You know...I think I may have met this fellow playing in a Mariachi band down in Denver for Cinco de Mayo. grin

Fine job. Excellent work on lyrics, choice of style, and use of the VL Rack. Gonna go get some tacos and listen a few more times while dancing around the room. Keep 'em coming.

BB cool

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
