Our second post of 2018 is:

It's getting away from you

I created the music about a year ago. It took me quite a while to come up with a vocal and lyric for this.
Check out Anne-Marie's voice oohs coming in at 1.35 and the Zane Carney realtrack coming in at 1.50!

Lyrics:

It's a strange and sweet delight
I saw you craving for that fame
It's the loneliness that drives you
It's the hurt from deep within
But you burning all your bridges on your way

Oh you lied to me
Just when you ran to me
You thought I was a breeze just given me that look
As of now you're just one step from your goal

You'd call my name
You'd wonder where you'll be, you said
If it weren't for you, I won't get very far
But just be careful now, it's getting away from you

Never in it for the love
Never in it for how hard I fell for you
It was no more than one step on your way

Dear you lied to me
And why'd I let that be
You thought I was a breeze just given me that look
Yes you must have been one step from your goal

You'd call my name
You'd wonder where you'll be, you said
If it weren't for you, I won't get very far
And let me tell you now, it's getting away from you

You will call my name you will wonder where I'll be
You said, if it weren't for you I won't get very far
But let me tell you now, it's getting away from you

When you falter and when you finally fall
Just look up and see I won't be very far
Just remember well
I moving away from you

Very nice peacefully flowing tune, some 80's soft rock vibes, I like the passage just before the chorus. Good arrangement and mix, and vocals are great as always.

Classic RnAM. This is so good on every level. The BGV's and guitar are awesome and your vocals are spot on. Great mix and arrangement. Enjoyed this one a lot.

Rob, That lead guitar you played was a great addition to this well put together song. You should do that more often. Great vocals and a spot on mix. Super hook line. The rhythm of the words flows so well. Enjoyed it a lot, Tom

Rob & Anne-Marie,
There`s always a professional shine to your music and this is another fine production (cool to hear you play lead guitar!).
For me its your emotive vocal that`s takes this above the crowd - very well done.

Robert

This song feels so melancholic. This was a really lovely piece. This song has such a professional quality to it. I could definitely imagine it playing on the radio in the late 80s or the 90s. Really fantastic job here.

Wow - what a tune! Your vocal performance here is truly outstanding. I can't get over how professionally done this sounds. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio, not one bit.

You did a truly great job here - thanks so much for sharing smile

The write and vocals/guitar performances are outstanding.

The soundstage is amazing on our monitors.

Everything has it's little niche but nothing sounds isolated either. The sweet spot.

This is a classy production from a class act. You two have a level of consistency that very few can claim.

Enjoyed it!!!

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.
