Jump to new posts Fast Calypso by Islansoul @ Yesterday at 09:27 AM

I would like to have a fast calypso style to be able to create fast 4/4 calypso to give it a cut time feel. I mainly want to see it for the drums, but other tracks would be nice as well. Also, add percussion such as break drum, calypso conga, bongos, gurio, and cowbell.
Jump to new posts chord screen by eddie1261 @ 04/17/18 05:29 PM

Is there any way to extract/export JUST the chord screen from a song? I am aware that I could copy the seq file, rename it, open it, etc. Just asking from the nerd perspective if it is possible. Background. I may be the only one this happens to, but sometimes after doing a tweak like tempo, adding measures, etc... I go back to the chord chart and find that it is different. I have one in progress right now that was written in C, with the chord designation as C so don't tell me to check that (I
Best of YouTube
A fair 'warning' ahead of view, this also 'happens to be' funny as hell Anyway, for me the trick at least in this case, lies very much in the third chord, which deviates from the presumed but without breaking the intent. And I have a feeling this may actually be expanded to a lot of songs, hence my choice of header. ... and now for the clip in question:

Jump to new posts Partituur, instellen repeat enz by Pannemanski @ 04/14/18 02:19 AM

Beste allen, Om een nieuw nummer aan te leren, lees ik mee met de partituur. Ik vul de akkoorden in het programma in, luister naar de muziek en speel mee. Het lukt niet om alle details er in te krijgen. Graag wil ik iets er bij in zetten wat ik op veel bladmuziek zie. Ik zie vaak het cijfer 1 en 2, en een rechte lijn. Dit houdt in dat dit het einde van een deel is, en daarna wordt er (meestal) één keer herhaald, om vervolgens na die herhaling naar nummer 2 te gaan, en dan weer door met het v

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
