RayC. Thanks so much for sending your mix of One Piece. I like it very much. The vocal is very clear. On the harmonies, you may have noticed that they were cloned from the load vocal (using Melodyne) and then duplicated. When I duplicate I generally pan them out left and right and move the one over by a few cents so that they dont cancel each other out. Interesting with the mono mix but you can immediately hear the difference with the stereo one. Robert - Thanks for your kind words. I also lik

Very tidy jazz with a bit of energy against the swing which is cool.

It's a very cool collaboration. Nice BIAB arrangement and well played addition stuff. The only nit I would pick is that the very 1st syllable is weak in comparison to the rest of the line - that'd only take a 10 tweak to fix then you have a dead set classic 70s singer songwriter piece.

Robert, a cool combo of sounds and some lovely guitar work on top. The lyrics paint a great story. This could fit nicely with the tracks on Nick Cave's Murder Ballads album.

Bob, vintage & folky indeed - though the bass line is a bit busy - you've pulled together an ace arrangement and your intimate vocals work well within it. I still get that pleasant Rod McKuen vibe.

Wow, this swings. Made me think of Andrews Sisters swinging stuff. Well done everyone involved.

Jump to new posts Re: The Ability To Program up to 8 Chords in a Bar by Pipeline @ Yesterday at 08:41 PM

You can run RapidComposer in Biab as a vst, it will give you as many chord changes per bar as you like, but I have enough trouble playing 2 chords per bar. You can load the RealCharts into RapidComposer ,use Sforzando and they will automatically change with the chord changes. In the pic below they are just held chords.

Wow Rockstar_not. What a great post. I had no idea about the computer screen. My dog house sized room has my tube valve amp a foot from my screen. Time to make some serious changes. I need to do my vocals in a studio and accept that it's not possible in my dog house sized life in Hong Kong. Not to mention the TV, dogs, family and fridge....

And I saw him a couple years prior to that in a solo show at a little local venue, and he was awesome. I wish I had that kind of energy.... ever! Thanks again!

Is there any chance you will be expanding the Vocals (oohs and Aahs, etc) and will you make a PAK just for the vocals. They are excellent for those of us without backup to support us. Thanks.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
