Hey Y'all,

I just got put on ReverbNation's Best New Alternative Music list with some hard-core peeps. Do me a solid if you can and click and it will help me out. I posted it on the song forum too just to cover my bases because I think this makes a good point about songwriting AND producing with BIAB. This the only time I will double post like this in this manner, but I am trying to make a point about the high quality of the music we can do here.

And, the song was posted here first.

The song is that one Heaven Here that some of you seemed to like. This shows that you can do a legit recording using these tools, you do not have to argue about what these tools can do, and out of 3.7 million people, YOUR song can get out there in the world with all those young hip cats.

https://www.reverbnation.com/scm/2367-best-new-alternative-music

I rest my case.

I am going to post this on songwriters forum too, just to say, you CAN do MODERN with BIAB. If this list isn't modern I don't know what is.

That is a great song, David.

Congratulations, and well-done.

Great writing, and a great performance, and production.

Can you provide some details as to what you played yourself, and what you did with BIAB?

I will also do a search here to find this.

What a great song. Your voice puts me in mind a little of Graham Parker.

EDIT - David, I have listened to 'Heaven Here' (in this latest incarnation, and some of the other versions) about 5 times so far, and am going back to listen more.

If I cannot sleep tonight because the song is going through my head, I will hold you responsible wink

Hey Dugrat,

Thanks! Here is the first post with all the track info in it at the bottom.

This was actually a good lesson in the overall combination of the product and the forum.

Insofar as playing I used the tracks in the OP, adding in additional instruments for verse two, as you will see.

I played the main acoustic however, finger style, to give it a really "snappy" feel...so the main guitar you hear is me. BIAB is the bed, actually two beds, starting on verse two.

Several forum members such as Noel Adams were a great help to me in coaching me through a version two, giving feedback as I worked on it, and their feedback was invaluable.

Thanks so much for listening and I hope this helps.

Here is my original post with all you need.

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.

Review all the new features of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 here.
