Style: CHEATED
Category: Rock/Pop

I wrote this some years back when I was in a melancholy mood. I first recorded it using Real Band a few months ago, but then redid the whole thing using the CHEATED style, and I just replaced it on Sound Cloud. I supplemented the bass with a cello, added a viola at the second verse, and then two violins emerge at the bridge.

CHEATED Tracks:
BB RealBass 2478 Bass, Acoustic, Held
BB RealDrums-PopAmerican
BB RealGuitar 1677 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking CountryB
BB RealStrings 2932 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Songwri

Additional Tracks:
RT2509 Cello, Background PopEven
RT2510 Viola, Background PopEven
RT2512 Violin, Background PopEvenLow
RT2511 Violin, Background PopEvenHigh

Lyrics

I’m all alone in the way that I feel
Out on my own with nothing left to reveal
Some things I’ll never tell you
So I’ll just bid farewell to you

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

Tomorrow knows if I’ll see you again
My sorrow shows, I can no longer pretend
For all my dreams I can’t atone
I might as well leave you alone

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

I’m sorry for the way I looked at you
Come closer, I need to know what’s true

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

not sure if your " new " composition was done in Band-in-a-Box® or RealBand or a combination plus perhaps some DAW .

However, your selection of the style Cheated was spot on .

The additional tracks and reverb together with your vocals made it a hit with me .

Good luck with your entry in this contest.

Thanks. I forgot that add that I generated the tracks in RB, and recorded, mixed, and mastered in MixCraft.

Loved this song. Great harmony vocals, and the inclusion of strings was great.

And I hope you are unaffected by the storm. Stay safe.

Thanks. We are in the western side of the state. We will probably get some extra rain.

Like the song, arrangement and the singing... the voice has a strange "I'm inside a barrel" element to it in my ears, for some reason, which is a shame considering the great harmonies.

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.
