Harmonica Blues

Hi all,

well, I got my BIAB 2018 this weekend!
I took a "Jessies Girl" midi file, and
put it through BIAB using _OOHLA.STY

When I pressed play it did not come out perfect.
So I started deleting chords, where I thought it
was not working out. 65% of the chords were deleted
I was down to 27 bars... which really sounded good.
I looped 3 repetitions.

The night before I put some irregular Ooh's and Ahh's
together. First half as the intro... second half as the bridge
in this song. Hoping to make the song structure more natural.

I guess some Harmonica could be edited out if some vocals are added.
A collab is not out of the question....

It will be fun to Jam with...

Nice work here, LPman! I really enjoyed the use of those Oohs and Aah's here. They perfectly compliment the harmonica. Not to mention, it is wonderfully catchy with an excellent groove. There a lot of charisma in this one for sure. I can imagine it sounding unreal performed in a live setting.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Hi Deryk - PG Music
I am proud of this one, thank you so much!
I am hoping to take another midi file and
destroying it: in the same way... to find out if
this a valid method to produce musical hooks.

My B61-Day is this month! Thanks to this forum & PG music... It's going to be a great month to remember!

Thanks Ember - PG Music
I am on Smule.com hoping to find some singing talant or a co-writer. I watched Jane Floyd's new movie, on how he writes his songs. This is such a giving forum to be a part of....

Hello, LPman

Ooh's and Ahh's vocals are really nice and effective.
They seem like a little gospel-style.
If they were Motown-like vocals they might sound completely gospely.
Harmonica is also very nice.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

Ya the intro and bridge is very gospel, come to think of it... I wonder if choral harmony is possible? Thanks so much for your comment. Glad you enjoyed it

Thanks Rob4580
I tried the same concept and made a BIAB video.
I just named it LOST DOG.mp4
I placed it in my Tethered 2018 folder below:
I'll tinker a bit with it on the piano...
thanks for posting here cool

The smooth vocals and the raunchy harmonic make for an interesting contrast.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi dcuny,
Ya, I didn't even change anything with regeneration of the harmonica. Normally I make 5 tracks and edited it to one track.... but BIAB did fine on it's own...

Thanks for posting dcuny

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.
