Thank you again to everyone who submitted their songs to our Xtra Styles PAK 5 Song Contest - 59 entries in total!

As always, we were blown away with every song entered! We truly enjoy listening to what everyone comes up with using Band-in-a-Box!

Our judging team listened to all the songs, and choosing the winners wasn't easy... some of the things taken into consideration were the quality of the composition, Xtra styles used, use of program features within the song, and originality - and we're now ready to announce the winners!

Congratulations to the winners but also congratulations to all the participants.

I'm sure this came down to coin tosses in some instances because all the entries were excellent. I'm just glad I wasn't asked to judge because judging this contest had to be extremely difficult.

Again, congratulations!

Being quite the competitive person (on the rare occasion I go into such a situation), I can't often sincerely say I don't care if I win or lose, but this time around I can genuinely say I honestly don't care that I didn't win! Especially since I can't fault any of the decisions for the winners smile

So congrats to all the fine artists who did win. Well earned cool

Wow!

I am happy to win, but I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been sad if I didn't win, because there are so many great songs in this contest.

I feel so lucky that I have found this forum with so many great song writers and music producers... and... just great, friendly people.


Thanks again,
Will

Yes, this was a great one and congrats to the winners--and congrats to all who entered, as has been noted.

I was truly amazed at the entries on this one from people I have heard before, and people who are new.

The level of songcraft, production, lyric writing, vocals, arrangement, creativity, and use of blended styles and tools was just astounding.

Some of the best work I have heard from everyone. I could tell a lot of people were really "going for it"--and it was magical to see and hear it all come together.

Some amazing talent on this forum for sure. Some real "producers."

Boo! Hiss!......opps, wrong forum laugh

It took me forever to go thru the entries, because the first time I was looking for "the winners"....by the 3rd time I was just enjoying all the tracks!

Congrats folks, you deserved the wins in my book, even tho it would have been a stale mate if I would have had to pick....

I think this was better than the last xtra contest, and I hope PG keeps this up. It is fun to hear what is done with styles that have not been around for too long.

Again, Congrats folks! cool

Congratulations to all of the winners. I'm sure that the judges had a very hard time picking a winner as all of the entries were excellent.

This contest really showed BiaB's versatility.

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.
