I may be working a on a project that could consume a bit of time for a while, however there is a chance that won't happen as well. IF it doesn't, I've wanted to work on putting a song together.

That got me thinking...is there any interest in a specific style of music that isn't heard here that often and/or it's of interest.

As a general rule I prefer to write more radio-friendly music.

For me, I was considering New Country, NuMetal/Rock, crossover Americana/country, pop...I'm kind of open. lol

I would love input from ya'll. smile

This is my opinion and others may not agree but if you are a hobbyist and/or not trying to make a ton of money then play what YOU want to play.

I played in wedding bands for years playing whatever the customer wanted. Now I'm retired from playing out and I'm going to play whatever I want to play. YMMV

I always like new interesting rock, but that's just me.

Especially the odd time or counteringmelody/overlaying type stuff. It's the Off Topic forum so I assume you can use whatever you want and aren't limited..

For me personally you didn't really mention anything there in terms of music styles that would right away make me go "don't change the channel" if I'm honest, but I'm really with Mario on this one - Do you! cool

Since I saw the movie O'brothers, I fell in love with deep North American music. Hear these little girls sing nursery rhymes with honeyed melodies and chords that made the soul vibrate. So there the songs they played (in front of the mayor), this bluegrass ...... yum yum, honey in music!
Since that day, I am desperately waiting for one of you to give us a delicious song of the same kind, I am sure it will be "Radio Friendly"

We don't hear a lot of metal, reggae, or hip hop in the showcase. All genres of music I'd love to hear more of smile Granted, I think it is just because the majority of showcase posters aren't particularly interested in these genres. Which is a-okay, of course!

You could also change a song's genre with Biab. From R&B to Country etc . ..

Hey Deryk, Janice and I are working on a reggae tune to post soon as we last posted one (Rewind Me) almost two years ago. Time do fly. I think over the years well posted four. And they were all fun projects.

I've done Blues, Reggae, Rock, Country, New Age, Celtic, Dance, Bluegrass, Jazz, Sea Shanty's, Historical Songs, Ballads......I've even done a bloody Tango. grin


I'm sure you could do Metal and Hip Hop with BIAB easily. The only limitation is your imagination.

Bob

I am going to respond to the OP first, and just say this:

One of my favorite genres is indie/indie-folk, and would love to hear more in the user showcase along those lines. I mean, if we're going to get in to specifics I know that indie is technically supposed to be anyone who is not signed with a major record label (re: independent artists), but I find that the "indie genre" of music that has been born has developed a very specific sound.

For me, I would love to hear something in the same vein as The Decemberists, Passenger, Steam Powered Giraffe, or Florence + The Machine.

I also wouldn't mind challenging people to come up with something like Oh Land's style of pop. That could be an interesting challenge!

But at the end of the day, people need to do and play what makes them happy! I bet it's fun experimenting with other genres, but what you wanna play and what speaks to you comes first.

That's exciting! I can't wait to hear what you guys come up with. Reggae is definitely really under represented in the showcase right now, so this makes me happy to hear that you guys have something else in the works.

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.
