I have to dig to see what realtrack I used. The vocal is synthesized if it sounds a little weird that's why.
It's a minor blues progression. wrote the song for the cat we had to give away due to serious allergy.

hope you like it.

https://soundcloud.com/quekou/kali-sleeps-anywhere

Kali oh Kali sleeps anywhere
oh Kali at any corner any chair
snoozing by the window
she doesn't care

Kali oh Kali likes comfy beds
oh Kali oh Kali likes hiding in closet
dozing below piano
but she likes boxes the best

Kali oh Kali has pretty eyes
oh Kali watches birds fly and chipmunks go by
she wondered to my side last night
she whispered in my ears "sleep tight"

Kali oh Kali
Kali oh Kali

I know all about seriously cat allergies as my wife, two sons and I have them.

I am not fond of synthesized vocals however you did a very good job on this. I really liked your backing tracks, great job on that.

A very nice song.

One of the best Vocaloid things I have ever heard.

Extremely well done. You used the vocaloid as an art form here.

Great lyrics. Love the tonal structure of the piece. Very, very, very good.

Cheers.

Hi!

Very, very nice!~ Love the backing tracks. This is so professionally done.

Moving the pan on the lead guitar was really nice. I enjoyed this very much.

This is very nice, very smooth. I love the guitar solo. Good work! The synthesized voice fits well with the character of this song.

Thank you for you all for your kind words about my music. So I did a little diggin and here's what I think the realtrack I used.

Guitar, Electric Rhythm Dire Ev085 #508
Guitar, Electric, Background Dreamy Ev 065

The vocal is synthesized using Yamaha Vocaloid, the soundbank is Sweet Anne.

Again, thank you all for listening.

I really like the mood of this. The rhythm section works nicely, and there are several simple but effective sounds. The blues guitar soloist is great, and the reverb on the guitars is perfect. Singing reminds me of Carole King, excellent work with Sweet Ann, also those backing vocal parts are nice addition. There is not enough songs about cats so this fills the shortage wink

Thank you all very much for taking the time listening to my music. I am glad that found it enjoyable.

The progression is in common minor blues form and melody line was improvised on my guitar and refined when I programmed the vocloid with the backing.

Again, appreicated your kind comments.

Sophisticated,simple enough to be hypnotic and extremely well produced. If you hadn`t acknowledged the vocaloid treatment I probably wouldn`t have known, its so good.
Very well done!

Thank you for your kind words. The vocaloid is a great tool for us nonsingers though sometimes it is a pain to adjust the parameters to make it sound tiny little more natural.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
