I'm not sure if you're aware that there're 19 seconds of silence and a truncated rim shot before the music begins.
I almost gave up.
I don't know the song so the progression and minimalist arrangement didn't work for me. I'm sure, if I knew the melody & lyrics, that I'd have been more engaged.

Thanks for the listen and the constructive comments.
The 18 delay should not have happened. It was an oversight in bouncing. This Audio Mack is something new for me & I neglected to notice there is no trim edit on the sight.
The edges were taken off with Sony EQ in Reaper. The reason is this is a rehearsal guide for a presentation that will have a campfire feel to it after the instruments and vocals are added. I wanted kind of an unobtrusive, even muffled, sound, which I see as the essence of the strummed six and twelve strings.

Thank you, Scott.
This goes back to a comment made a few years ago that she was reminded of her father, when he used to sing hymns to her when she was a little girl. That stuck with me. When 2018 came out, with the Campfire style, I thought, maybe this is it. We'll see.
One thing about campfire guitar, it does cut through. I thought softening those edges might help. Now, on to vocals, or is it melody guitar?

Like Scott, I’m interested in hearing the completed composition… I like the strumming guitars as a backing!!

Thanks, fellows. Bouncing and tweaking as we go along.
Note: One thing that makes the guitar such a favorite for folk and sing along, which is, after all, what congregational singing really amounts to, is that it can be heard through just about anything, even unamplified. It is a treble instrument The open E is second octave above middle C.
For my purposes, working with small groups of youth, we need something that sets the style, teaches the song, and can eventually be replaced by a live rhythm player, or continue to be used. The performers like hqving their own backing tracks at home.
I had to get into that Reaper Sony EQ effect and trial and error the sliders until the edge was taken off the top and the bass was brought under control. As we all know, tracks produced in one platform don't necessarily sound what we'd expect on the next.
I wanted to run this by you all. Thanks for your patience. Decided to lay in the vocals next for this 12 song Christian Camp Fire set.

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.
