Floyd, sorry I'm late in commenting, but these examples are so helpful. To be able to clear away everything else to hear what is going on in a single element of so is amazingly useful. Then to be able to listen to the mix again, it's easier to hear how the pieces of the puzzle fit. I know it was mentioned, but when this song first came out, I thought it was Gordon himself.

'Play correctly' stands out to me in the OP. For odd time styles BiaB uses the time span of a 4/4 measure/tempo over a 5/4 style so the beats on a click don't line up .. then BiaB does the math to make things work (have 5/4 play over a 4/4 timespan). Too complicated for me. I want the bar lines, events, metronome and click to all make sense. That said, the styles for Take 5 in BiaB do seem pretty nice as far as the end result .. they just are not technically correct for timing/syncing when a

I put my twin reverb inside a cardboard box in the garage, and then put the mic I used to mic it in a tin can, and put the tin can inside the box, then recorded it into a one track cassette tape player, but ran the audio output from that into a four track and then fed that back into Ableton with some plate reverb. It sounded like Whole Lotta Love. Is that the kind of thing you guys are talking about???

Hi Francois, You'll find all the metronome settings in the Band-in-a-Box - Preferences window, but the visual metronome is Windows-only, sorry. I'll be happy to pass along a request though. Thanks Kent PG Music

Hi, I'm using 64-bit VSTs in Band-in-a-Box 2018 on OS 10.13 right now, using JBridge. It's working fine. Though most plugins are available in AU format, there's usually a VST version too, for anyone not using Logic. I produced using Ableton Live on a Mac for years, and used almost exclusively VSTs with no issues. I ran into one semi-obscure delay plugin that was AU-only, that was it. So I'd say JBridge is handy, since some newer plugins are 64-bit only these days. Thanks Kent PG Music

Hallo Melahide, ja, es ist alles so wie du schreibst. Wenn du eine HD-Version 2018 Mac als Upgrade brauchst, wende dich am besten an den deutschen Distributor m3c in Berlin unter www.m3c.de.

Hi! I have big problems with mixer in BIAB 2018 (all syles and realtracks) when I load for example the style NashvilleBrushesHillbillySwing , it works fine , but I noticed that when I try to play along with my midi keyboard or keyboard wizard, what ever the sound level of my notes is affected and reduce and comes to the original level following the bars.. strange! In that style there is a real track piano part and this one is also doing the same .; sound level changing constantly.. I tried m

Jump to new posts Re: 2nd time through chorus, all chord changes are ignored by Kent - PG Music @ 05/14/18 06:41 PM

Hi Paul, If this happens again, please let us know. The issue sounds a lot like what happens if someone makes a repeat without checking the "Generate (insert) new bars" checkbox, but really shouldn't be happening when your chorus repeats. It's possible that re-opening the song fixed it because it had been forced to regenerate, so be sure to try clicking Generate and Play instead of Play if the problem comes back and see if that makes a difference.

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!!!
