THis is just a quick reminder, a lot of great songs are on this forum, and others, Soundcloud, Soundclick, etc. Artists that are doing great songs outside of the big labels. I will buy downloads from these artists much more than from large labels, We can make a difference.

Most of the music I listen to, probably 75%, is music that is posted here on the user showcase forum.

Well I listen to this and Soundcloud, but, mainly I am talking about purchasing music, downloads primarily, so many of the artists here and on Soundcloud put music online for download and they have great material, That is what I mean , supporting them vice always buying the large labels. I also like some of the large label songs not saying dont buy them just be fair.

I have purchased a number of CDs form forum members. I have CDs from Joanne Cooper, Eddie, Matt and a few more that I can't remember right now. My wife really likes Matt's wife Denise Jordan Finley so we have all of her CDs. In the last two or three years I have purchased more CDs from members then from the large label guys.

I think some very good points are being part made here.

For one, I too probably do most of my non-classical listening here on this forum for several reasons.

1.) I like the music better. I like songs that sound authentic and this forum is dripping with authenticity and originality.

2.) Commercial music to me is like a hamburger chain drive through. "We have a cheeseburger and a cheeseburger, and fat with some fat. That's your choice. Take it or leave it." Uh, no thanks.

3.) I like being part of a community of musicians. I don't want to give my money to an institution or people who couldn't care less whether I live or die and offer me a choice between a cheeseburger and a cheeseburger.

4.) This forum is where I have learned to write better over the past four years. I am happy that people are buying my stuff on Amazon and iTunes and stuff, and I also know that without the friends and mentors I have made here, that would not be happening.

So yeah, I plan to stick around. My website is literally busting open at the seams with music now and I have this group to thank.


And yes, I support independent artists and not the machine--but not as a political cause. I just like real music better. I don't like stuff that comes out of the machine.

I agree, David.

To me the music here is more interesting and varied than what you hear on mainstream. And in my case I listen to genres I would never listen to if it wasn't for this forum, and listening to stuff outside your comfort zone can only help you grow as a musician/songwriter.

And now for a little bit of shameless self-promotion so as not to disappoint Bob, I'll have a new song up soon eek cool

On shameless self promotion:

1. My grandmother used to say: "It's a sorry dog that can't wag its own tail."

2. My literary agent says: "When you're pitching a book to a big-time publisher it's no time to be modest."

3. My brother was once the front man for one of the most popular college circuit bands on the east coast. I went back stage after a packed show where screaming females had been trying to push their way up on stage. I asked him his secret. He said:

"Two things Dave.

"#1. Don't ever go up on stage and say good evening ladies and gentlemen, we're the second best band in the world.

"#2. People go nuts when they think something crazy cool is going on and they can be a part of it.

"Remember that Dave."

I say go shameless self-promote with your bad self all you want.

For several reasons I don't listen to much music these days but when I do it is almost always something posted here and I am usually blown away by how clever the folk on this forum are. Not only in the use of BIAB but also writing and producing their work.

My two bobs worth

When it comes to music I like, I'll support the artist no matter what by buying their tracks. Big or small, I very much believe in keeping the music industry alive by paying for the content I want to listen to. I think I am one of the only people I know who still buys CDs and records (new) in support of those whose music I really enjoy.

I still remember going to a concert with my friend to see Passenger back when he only had 10, 000 followers on his facebook. I bought his CD right away at the end of his show, and the next year he came back to town we went again. When I went on to his social media to thank him for the amazing show, he was well over 250, 000 followers in 12 months.

Proof that if you support the smaller artists that they can become big and find the right connections. Whether it's buying their merch, their EPs or paying to see them at a venue it all counts if enough people offer their support and encouragement!

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.
