Jump to new posts New Orleans Parade Band Style by 2bSolo @ Today at 12:32 PM

Hello out there. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I want to do a song in the style of a New Orleans funky parade band. Something like Big Chief/Indian Red. Is there a BB style like that?
OK, I've got a song I'm working on, which is still a MIDI file . . . well, actually I've saved it as an RB file, but still it's MIDI. Anyway, it doesn't end exactly at the end of a measure. But I want the song to continue for a couple of more measures because I've added some stereo delay to the mix and I want the delay to ring out and diminish. Well, I've found the command for inserting measures (Edit> Insert blank bars into song...), but this has to be done at an even measure point, and if

Jump to new posts How Many Songs by rworkman @ Today at 11:56 AM

I'm totally new to BIAB, and have the Ultra Plus Pkg. I'm not sure which folders to scan when building the song list in the Song Picker Dialog Screen. How many "Songs" are there? I have a "50 Songs" folder, is that it? If I scan the entire BB folder, it seems to load everything; styles, riffs, etc. What am I missing here?

Jump to new posts Cannot audition Real Styles in Real Band by paul435smith @ Today at 07:47 AM

Hi I have no problem auditioning styles etc. in Band in a Box. But for some reason, in Real Band nothing happens when I click on the Green Play Button to audition Real Tracks or Styles. I have tried clicking on and off the Band Setting and the Use Internet setting but still no luck. Also, I downloaded all the 2017 files and the latest from 2016 and installed these again. There were no errors during installation. It's strange that I do not have this problem in Band in a Box. All files for BI

Bonjour à toutes et à tous. J'ai il y a quelques jours téléchargé la version 2017 de Band in a Box en update d'une version de 2005. Elle fonctionne apparemment très bien , excepté que je n'ai pas de real tracks dans le répertoire installé, de même que ma collection de real drums semble très limitée. J'ai donc ré-installé le logiciel sans plus de résultat. la notice en Anglais ne semble pas avoir de solution à mon problème , Je pense ne sans doutes pas être seul dans ce cas

Get To Know the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab Feature - Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows

One of the new features we added with Band-in-a-Box® 2017 is the 12-Key Hi-Q Tab RealTracks. Click here to listen & watch this new feature in action!

Detailed information:
New! 12-Key "Woodshedding" RealTracks
Many people use the RealTracks feature in Band-in-a-Box® to learn how to "play like the pros." This is because you can see notation, tab, on-screen guitar, and more as you hear the music. Now we've taken this to a higher level, by providing some "12-Key" RealTracks that have been recorded in all 12 keys! In previous versions, you might decide to learn to play by studying the parts played by the RealTracks artists, and watch the notation to do so. Many people have found this a great way to learn, but it had the following issues:
-Since RealTracks were based on only 5 keys, they were transposed much of the time, which would make the guitar part unplayable for a student in some cases.
-The tab/notation was good for guitar, but lacked some precision and graphical representation of bends, pull-offs, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.

We have solved that by creating some Guitar RealTracks with recording in all 12 keys! So you can see what a pro would play over an Ab chord, and you won't see them play on a G transposed up to an Ab, and carefully transcribed notation, with correct bend/hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides... So now you (we!) students have no more excuses! You can watch and learn from the pros!

Plus, Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts are available with highly accurate and readable notation, including new graphical markings for bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs! To see these in action, load in one of the 12-key Hi-Q notation RealTracks by Brent Mason. You can also enter your own guitar notation using these features. Just right click on a note to set its properties to include bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.
