April 30, 2019 User Showcase Song - Wildflowers In Springtime
Wildflowers In Springtime (A Tom Adams Production)
Tom (tommyad) did all the heavy lifting on this one. He handled all of the production/mix/mastering, played guitar/steel, created the arrangement and wrote the lyric. Janice created the melody and sings. Bud engineered Janice’s vocal, took the photo and went along for the ride.
Thank you Tom for inviting Janice in on this! And thank you forum folks for your time to hopefully both listen and comment.

April 25, 2019 User Showcase Song - Way To A Woman's Heart
This seems to be my third song this year on this forum with 'woman' in the title. Pure coincidence, but tells where my inspiration has come from lately smile
I have had a vocaloid version of this on soundcloud for couple of years, but now I have finally sung it myself. The original arrangement sounded bit harsh so I had to find a softer but still rocking instruments. I was happy to find the combination of PopPepSquad drums and baritone guitars, BIAB fulfilled my wishes once again smile Unfortunately the baritone guitars don't have nice-sounding holds so I had to use filling guitars for those parts.

Baritone guitars #2499, #3164
Electric guitars #632, (hold #996 & #2352)
Electric guitar soloist #1722

Summary of changes:
Band-in-a-Box® 2019 626:
Fixed: In the 64 bit version, PG DirectX plugins would not list any presets. The presets are shared with the 32 bit version, so saving and deleting should affect the same preset lists.

Fixed: Various access violation errors may occur in the StyleMaker.
Fixed: There was a spurious "Number is out of range" error message when leaving the Guitar Settings window.
Fixed: Program might freeze during bootup during "counting candidate plugins" process.

Summary of fixes for the VST DAW Plugin (1.14.2):
Fixed: B part markers was not starting on new line when opening saved song.
Added: Sending midi data to DAW.
Fixed: BBW connection status was too small. Now it is a Biab player silhouette in the bottom left corner.
Added: Unfold multiple choruses.
Added: "DEMO", "STOP", "PLAY" shortcuts to chord sheet.
Fixed: All Bass RealTracks can now play the root for odd slash chords. This affects a large number of RealTracks. 108 RealTracks are updated with this patch.
Fixed: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm HardRockThrash (RT#641) previously would play nothing if "DI" was selected as the option in the RealTracks picker.
Fixed: Some demos had incorrect key info in the memos, which have been fixed. e.g. _USASLO.SGU. 15 demos updated.
Fixed: BM_CWLTZ demo previously had a Resonator Guitar solo, even though that's not part of the style.
Fixed: The groove section of the RealDrums picker was not displaying the full entry for the RealDrum. This has been corrected so full entries are now visable. Also, some typos fixed in DrumGroove descriptions, e.g. FunkSanFran.
Fixed: RT508:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev 085 was not playing minor chord endings properly
Fixed: RT2615: Bass, Electric, FunkPumpingQuarters Ev 100 was playing incorrect chords at certain parts.
Fixed: Mandolin, Soloist Country12-8Andy Sw 065 [Bluesy] #2178 played wrong audition demo.

RT3259: Sax, Tenor, Background BluesShuffleLow Sw 130
RT3260: Trumpet, Background BluesShuffle Sw 130
Fixed: The RealDrums FunkSwing switched from an open hihat in the B section to a Ride. This has been corrected so that the ride is now its own substyle.

This is a continuation of the video on how to anticipate an eighth or a sixteenth note on any beat, but now we are including rests!

We had a customer ask if you can anticipate an eighth or a sixteenth note on any beat. Yes, you can!
Tobin made up a quick video to show how this is done, so we thought we would share it for anyone else who would like to know how to do this.

"One of the truly great things about Band-In-A-Box is that allows you to create so many different styles and kinds of music. From simple, intimate indie-artist-style productions to big-commercial-style Pop, Rock or Country (just to name a couple). This would be on the 'bigger' end..."
