Nice guitar playing throughout.
Sounds excellent.

Peter

Many thanks, Peter. Appreciate all the nice comments.

Excellent song.

Hi Robert.
Love the "garage" comment. Yes, that's exactly what I was after.
Many thanks for the review.

Glad you got this one. This is how you end the year and a good note! Everything about this shines ... excellent song and production.

Merry Christmas.

Hi Alan and many thanks for the review.
I've always been a fan of Jefferson Airplane, right through from the early blues days to Starship's rock ballads! Glad you liked this one and hope you had a good Xmas.
Cheers, ROG.

Hi Tom.
Drum tracks have such a huge dynamic range that back in the tape days we always had to wind up the compressor and then we'd still have the VUs banging on the end stops! Old habits die hard.
Hey, glad you liked it - I had a lot of fun putting it together.
Cheers, ROG.

Great sound on this-your mixes are always fantastic! Enjoyed!! Merry Xmas! Take care. Greg

Hi Greg.
Yeah, the tape machines had a certain magic - until they went wrong! I remember re-winding a full spool of two inch tape when the motion sensing and brakes failed and the feed reel nearly broke the sound barrier.
But yes, things just did sound better.
Many thanks for the kind comments.

ROG,

I apologise for taking a while to get this.

This whole presentation sparkles and gleams with professionalism. The sound is amazing. The mix, your playing, your arranging, everything, is spot on and to my ears, each component piggy-backed on every other component and created a really satisfying aural journey.

Really enjoyable music!

All the best for 2018,
Noel

Hi Rog,

I don't usually reply to the songs on the forum, because I am not a musician, I hear songs, if you know what I mean, but this song is so brilliant you could place it in the hit parade.

All the very best.

George

George, what can I say?
That's one of the nicest reviews I've ever had.
The fact that you don't comment often makes it even more special.
Thank you SO much.

Basic recording techniques still produce that rawness that modern producers layer a hundred tracks trying to capture. And.. you just showed 'em how to do it..

Great way to end the year. Enjoyed my listen.

Hi Charlie.
It's great to have access to all the modern recording systems with unlimited tracks
and every conceivable effect, but yes, it's still necessary to get back to basics
for the raw power that the early recordings possessed.
Many thanks for this listen and review.
Cheers, ROG.

I'm very late to this 60's party but I'm glad that I did. Everything that I wanted to say already has been said.

Super song that sounds like it could have come from the Stones first album!

A super live feel to this.

This is a keeper.

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

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
