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.

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

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.
