Love it! Crusaders, Spyro Gyra, Shakatak? A nice female vocal perhaps? Great production.

Thanks for the listen and nice comments. I've not yet decided what I want to do with it. I'm loving the Spyro Gyra comments! Even if I add a vocal or lead instrumental track, I'm still gonna keep this musical bed. There are frequent calls from film & TV folks for these kind of tracks. Appreciate the suggestions and nice words.

Alan

Alan,

This is cool. All it needs is some Barry White vocals.

By the way, how many songs a minute can you write???

Thanks David,

Just last night, SDi asked me if I thought I could do a Barry White-type vocal for this!!! Good minds thinking in unison! Actually, I got a vocal goody from FedEx a couple fo hours ago - A TC Helicon vocal processor - the Voice Live edition. Looking forward to playing around with it tomorrow. In fact, it specifically has a Barry White setting on it to help enrich your voice in that direction. We'll see! For $2560.00, it had better do something to make my voice sound a little more listenable!

After I lay around with it and figure our some of the options and effects, I'll record a song pr two and post them. We'll see how it goes.

Glad you liked this. Thanks for letting me know!

Alan


PS: To answer your last question ... I can do two a day with no problem. Since I don't do the "Big Sound" thing like you, Torrey and few others do, I don't need as much time. Right now, I have over a dozen songs ready to go! I;ve written all of thenm over the past two weeks.

Isaac Hayes is back and he brought Spyro Gyra with him!

This is a great 70's cop/spy movie track. Excellent work on this brilliant production.

This is a keeper.

Hey Mario,

You're much too kind. But that's okay!~ Thank you so much for those kind words. Sure do appreciate them!

You're forgiven Al wink
Well we sure can hear where your musical roots come from:
Starsky and Hutch, Baretta, Charlie's Angels, we could go on....

But you sure master the skill to make this sound really 70s authentic!

That is the vibe I heard!! Very nice. I'm going to have to play with those RTs. I'm guessing that's Jeff Lorber on the keys-love that EP!! Thanks for posting! Take care. Greg

Hi Al,

I love the sound of this composition. The style sits incredibly comfortably with you... very classy.

After listening to your and Di's outstanding music on here for some time now, I once again find myself marvelling at your diversity. Whatever genre you choose to work in, you do it with excellence. One of the things that I love about BIAB is that it makes 'genre hopping' really easy. So many times on this forum, you two show us how it's done.

Best wishes to you both,
Noel

Hi Again, Noel.

Thank you very much for the really wonderful comments. This is a genre that just come to me without a second thought. What I've always liked about RnB is it's ability to set a definite mood - probably more so than most other genres. And what makes that uncanny is the breadth of moods it can impart. Di and I are huge fans of the Do-[*****] of the 50s and early 60s and the Smooth RnB of the mid-sixties through the late-seventies.

We appreciate your comments so much! Again, thank you.

Alan & Di

Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

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.
