Jump to new posts Acoustic Guitar Solos For Country & Pop by Al-David @ Yesterday at 09:04 PM

The acoustic guitar solos already in BIAB are really nice. But, there are none for Country or Pop. In Country, acoustic guitar solos are fairly common. Perhaps a couple in Country and Pop, at least one in each genre for EV and SW. Thanks!

Hi there! My UCM202HD came in today and I'm having some troubles getting it up and running. I can't get my mic to pick up anything and the headphones jack produced sound from my computer for all of four seconds before stopping. This is probably (to my knowledge) a drivers issue. Running 64-bit Windows 10. Whenever I try running the driver setup to actually install the drivers, it loads for a second then disappears without bringing me to the setup window. I don't really see a way around this and

Please add more instruments in the "default" settings when using ST 2.X please. I love how easy it is to use the ST Voices in Biab, but some of us can easily mess up the routing of ST and lose those great instrument sounds. I'd love to have some Brass/Choir/Pads etc to use in Biab through the ST app. Thank you, Trax

Jump to new posts The Melody Feature by Islansoul @ 10/20/17 09:49 AM

So I just found out about the Melody feature in BAIB where you can not only stack Real Tracks together, but you set each track automatically change in your song. What a fantastic feature. I can stack 1Track Real Tracks to create my own Real Track section, or have multiple tracks change throughout the song whenever I tell it to change. Now I don't have to go into the setting and manually change the entire tracks just to have a different real track play on a certain section or set it to play for a

Jump to new posts Multi Drum Change by Islansoul @ 10/20/17 09:29 AM

I just found about this cool feature in BIAB where you can stack Real Tracks together as well have the Real Tracks automatically switch between the different tracks at your disposal. So, if you wanted to start out with a simple piano track for the first chorus, and then have a RnB style piano tracks, BIAB would automatically switch to that track without having to go into the settings and change that tracks yourself. After learning about this, I thought that it would be amazing to have setting ap

Jump to new posts Trade Four Drums by Islansoul @ 10/19/17 09:14 AM

I think we need to have drum parts that do the trade four patterns that are fairly common in jazz. It would be nice to have them implemented some of my songs to make them feel more humanistic and alive.

Jump to new posts Playlist Feature by perdido @ 10/19/17 07:51 AM

I use BIAB when playing fiddle, guitar, and banjo. As a result, I have a separate directory for each instrument. Many of the tunes exist in all 3 directories. Having a "playlist" for each instrument and just a single BIAB file for each tune would be an advantage. It would make file maintenance easier, and would eliminate two of the large directories containing BIAB files. Playlist could contain - 1. Name of tune. 2. Tempo. 3. Style. I use playlists when I access "The Ama

Jump to new posts Mellotron RealTracks Please by rayc @ 10/17/17 04:35 AM

There are a bunch of excellent things available and my idea may be too, too boutique but I'd love Mellotron RealTracks. The sound of a "Tron is unique and there were quite a bundle of voice tape sets for it. The Mel9 Tape machine pedal has 9 voices and is pretty easy to use though VERY expensive outside continental Nth America. Being able to create 'Tron tracks - poly & monophonic would be a blast.

Band-in-a-Box® Apps for iTunes! #iPodDay

With Band-in-a-Box® Version 2011 for Windows we introduced the Band-in-a-Box® App for iTunes, which worked by connecting your Windows desktop version to your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad™ - giving you the ability to generate, play, and save songs to your device with the same high quality RealTracks sound that you get with the desktop version of Band-in-a-Box! A great way to work on a song idea from ANYWHERE!

Then came the BB Remote App for Band-in-a-Box 2011.5 or higher, allowing you to control your desktop version of Band-in-a-Box from anywhere in the room! With BB Remote, you see the chords of the song (with current bar highlighted as the song plays on the Windows desktop program), and can control the mix (volumes, muting, reverb), load in new songs, and use the conductor to loop and move around the song.

Our Apps don't stop there... we also offer a RealBand Remote app, and the Pitch Invasion App!

Check out all the PG Music Inc. Apps available on iTunes here.

(Today, October 23rd, is National iPod Day.)
