Has anyone used this feature successfully?

Background: Izotope, the makers of Ozone, offer a plugin that (on the intermediate and advanced versions, $299 and higher) takes a stereo file and adjusts the balance between sounds or sections on the recording. Bring up the vocals, turn down the drums and horns etc. This appears to me to be a way to fix a bad mix without remixing.

Just curious who may have tried the feature.

Is this available only on the RX-7, or does it come with other Mazda models as well?

LOL - sorry, couldn't resist.

We could go round and round with that.

Hi Matt,
I have got the trial version and I had great fun with it more than anything else.
I played some Abba songs and isolated the vocals which was very informative about how they put complex background vocals together and how they added little extra vocals here and there to uplift part of the main vocal that go almost unnoticed.I have one song of mine that I got produced and so I only had the Mastered song but the lead demo singer was a little too prominent and I could definitely let her back into the mix more no problem and it would save me going back to the producer if I buy the product.What I think is that if you want to totally isolate a vocal totally its as good as you can get but its still not 100% maybe 90% or so.If however you want to lower or raise a section it is very impressive and I would guess that if you are only lowering or raising by a small amount it will work at its best.Also would be very good for Karoake im guessing or if you want to practice singing and compare ur effort to that of the original pro singer or drumming or base.

Also I suppose if you de reverbed the song before you used re balance you might Isolate the music from the vocals better and have not much artifacts left

I've played with RX7 a bit, pretty impressive. I wasn't able to get a clean isolated vocal from many songs like I hear in the demos, but it seems like it'll be handy for isolating some samples for remixes.

I'm going to play with it a bit more this weekend.

Izotope clearly have some very clever people working for them.

Cheers

Thanks!

Is the demo the medium or advanced version, that has the Rebalance feature?

Hi Matt,
I am presuming that the Ozone plug-in and RX-7 are more advanced than Song Surgeon, which is a program that I use occasionally to both slow down and/or try to isolate a part to hear it better, using presets and EQ.

Certainly, being able to re-balance a mix could be a useful tool at times.

I was really pleasantly surprised the other day when I took a Beatles outtake of 'I Saw Her Standing There', imported it to Song Surgeon and managed to EQ the result to be able to hear some of George's guitar that is impossible to hear in the finished mix (it is the same part, though).

The program is capable of subtle (re)-EQuing, but is not primarily aimed at that.

I have found it to be much better than other programs which have a similar purpose.

Anyway, just thought I would mention it.

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.
