#TipTuesday - Export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Lists in Band-in-a-Box® 2016

One of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Windows is the ability to export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums lists to a spreadsheet.

To do this, press the [Copy List] button within the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Picker windows. This will put the entire list on a file that saves within your BB folder, but it will also open up right away as a Notepad document when you choose [OK] on the message that appears.

When the Notepad document opens up, just select the entire contents, and copy it to your clipboard. When you paste it into an Excel (or other spreadsheet) document, you'll see that it separates the information into easy-to-sort columns.

This feature is also available in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac.

Celebrate International Artist Day!

Being an artist is more than just knowing how to draw or paint - art comes in all forms! From photography to sculpting to acting, dancing, writing, and musicians - if your work adds beauty to the world around you (and everyone else), you're an artist!

So, get out there and share your artistic abilities today! And don't forget to reach out to other musicians (or other artists) and celebrate their success too...

Like all of you here on our Forums, and anyone else creating music using our software! We love to listen to your songs, hear (or read) your thoughts, and help each other out.

Share your Band-in-a-Box® YouTube Finds!

Have you come across a YouTube video that uses Band-in-a-Box® tracks? Share it to the recently introduced I just hear Band-in-a-Box® on YouTube forum!

To date more than 20 videos have been shared, including the posts:
-Two videos with music made using BIAB
