Final song (for now) in my bossa's-in-Italy series..this one about the Eternal City.

Bella Citta

Welcome to Rome, now you're in Italy!
Bella citta! Welcome to Italy!
Ciao amore!

You kissed the ground at Fiumicino today;
Vita romana e piu vicino per te!

Campo d'fiori for our primo caffe;
Nella Borghese passegiando the day.

Jump on my vespa and hold me tight
Via Veneto and other sights!

Nel Vaticano la messa ensieme we pray;
La margarita bella then casa di me.

Roma's alive to the flaming heart;
Boca della Verita to start;
Great view! Love's new! Mai di piu!
I wanna make it my home with you.

At Trevi fountain toss a penny or two;
E per la cena, pasta e vino with you!

Walk thru the Forum and Rome of old;
Then Piazza Navona as night unfolds!

Tano,

Very nice. I love the jazzy feel of this one. I also like the mix - has a "live" feel to it.

Hello, Tom

Very nice Bossa Nova as usual.
The chord progression, too!
Italian words are very cool.
The dialogue between solo vocal and back chorus reminds me of Brazilian samba.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi,
original song and I'm particularly impressed because you sing of Rome.

A question, why Rome? is there any affective reason?

Otherwise a really nice song, whith good jazzy style.

Sergio

Sergio, Peter..thank you for listening.

Sergio..I will never forget that I once travelled to Rome from the US, and, as we were landing at Fiumicino, the airline was playing a song in which they were singing something about “Bella citta”..so that stuck in my mind. When I was working on this song, before I had the idea of the lyrics, the melody notes made me think of “Bella citta”..so I decided that I should make the song about Rome. And by mixing the lyric word of English with Italian, I found that I immediately gained many more cool rhymes.

Great work on this one, Tano Music smile I love the groove on this one, and also how you flawlessly combined languages here. I nearly missed it for the first half of the song, admittedly because I was mostly listening to the musical aspect. Fantastic chord progressions too.

Really nice job here - thanks for sharing!

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.
