A cracking all round track. Slight latin feel to the rhythm which gives it a real kick !

Will,

This is a great listen. EXCELLENT use of BIAB!

I always appreciate when someone uses a RealTrack or RealDrums that we haven't heard before and brings to our attention. Those RealDrums are very cool! (I hadn't heard them before - so thanks for that!).

All the instruments sound good. Excellent mix.

Cool track.

Will,
Nice flamenco dance tune.
"minor chords can be used in a happy context" - liked that smile
Pretty complex arrangement for this genre. Mixed very nicely. Good job!

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, Floyd!

Yes, I have a lot of fun going through older RealTracks... there are a lot of gems hidden within BiaB.

Thanks a lot for listening!

Hi Misha,

Flamenco? Well, maybe we can call it Flamenco-disco? smile

I really appreciate your kind comments! Thanks for listening.

Very uP.
The piano dominated from the right on my set up.
Reading my way down the page as I listened I'd have loved the piano part to be Flamenco guitar just for the fun of it but it's perfectly fine as is - similarly a clean solo would've served my fruit platter but your choices are excellent and I think you achieved your end.

Great composition and choice of RT's and the RD. Gotta check out those drums for future ideas.

Minor key and happy feel = mission accomplished!

The mix sounds excellent on the monitors.

Kudos!!!

A great rhythm section you have going on here! Very nice guitar work also. An interesting selection of RTs and RD that were mixed to perfection.

Great job on this!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
