I don’t know if this is valid or allowed but some years ago whilst learning about MIDI and FM synthesis I made a number of Christmas Carols. Here is one of the set. I understand it is public domain. It makes me feel relaxed.

O Holy Night

Tony

Thanks Jim, one can always rely on you for a kind word. This was done some years ago whilst learning more about synths and MIDI.

My problem is I use BIAB for my purposes and don’t really produce much I can let others hear. As a result I feel a bit of a phoney in some respects, albeit I have just arrived home from a show where yet another muso has asked if he can spend some time with me to help him sort some backing tracks for himself. He was amazed when I told him I generate all my own backing tracks. I am sure he’ll be blown away when I show him BIAB and what it can do.

Because I don’t create stuff others can hear or comment on I feel a bit guilty as regards comments on others efforts or being critical. But, I’m only too pleased to help others if and where I can. I do however listen to a number of others creations and am often blown away.

Thanks again Jim

Tony

You should never feel that, Tony! I've learned a lot from you about reaper and respect your opinion on any subject.

You did a great job on this Tony. I liked the way you built up the dynamics.

You should post some of your music and ask for constructive criticisms. That is how I started and what I still do. When I started out my stuff sounded like crap but with the help of forum members I learned a lot.

Thanks Mario, most of what I do are covers with no voice or lead guitar. I use them for backing tracks at my little shows and do my own guitar bits and singing. I try to get it to sound as close as I can to a live band. I am not a lover of downloading stuff from the WEB and singing over the top of the real performer as I hear others do.

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.
