That was extremely interesting and very educational.

Thanx for sharing.

I ended up more confused than enlightened.

Although he dismisses it out of hand, Dorian is as much a key as major (Ionian mode) and minor (Aeolian mode).

What's odd is that he treats Ab and G# as different keys. Notation doesn't change the sound of the note. But if you're including enharmonic equivalents, why arbitrarily stop at single flats? Bbb a valid key as well under that definition, which means there are an infinite number of keys.

I'd suggest that if you argued that modes aren't keys, there are only 12 keys - "key" refers to the "key note" of a scale, and there are only 12 distinct notes on my piano (when it's in tune).

I've wondered sometimes why they make us remember
which notes are sharped or flatted, when all they had to do was make a little mark on the appropriate notes. I mean, they dot notes, don't they? If it is a key with only two naturals, mark the naturals. All we'd have to do is learn to recognize
eight more notes.

Your point has merit, but accidentals are intended to serve a different purpose: inform the musician when a note is outside the given key.

So instead of cluttering up the music with something the musician knows - for example, all the Bs in a tune will be flattened - that information is given up front.

That way, the accidental flags when a note will be different than what was expected.

Oh, yeah, dcuny, you're right about that. It would wind up
causing more clutter than usefulness. Many of us, today,
play C, D, E, F, G and A majors, anyway. I have found,
playing guitar and a limited genre, that is PD Hymns,
that when the key is sharp or flat, the "muscle memory,"
if there is such a thing, pretty much sends the fingers
to the right strings without too much mental effort.

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.
