- FAQ and posting information for the Tips and Tricks section

- The Tips and Tricks section is a forum on the PG Music site for users to post 'tips or tricks' that other users might find helpful.

Some examples:

- you've found out a fun way to use Band-in-a-Box to help you with learing to improvise. Make a post describing what you do, and how it helps you.
- you've discovered that one of the RealTracks has a good guitar part, and displays in notation, and can be used to teach you a certain guitar style. Let's hear about it!
- You've discovered a style that can be used in different ways than intended. Perhaps you've added a flute solo, and it makes the style sound much different. Tell us the details!
- You've made some 'youtube' video tutorials on how-to-use Band-in-a-Box or RealBand. Post the details, so others can watch them!

Please note: Posts that are not tips-and-tricks (for example posts with questions on using the program) should be posted in the general forum for Band-in-a-Box or RealBand, and will be moved there if posted here.

Peter- thanks for understanding when I posted my whole video thing in the wrong forum. It seemed right in the beginning, but it became obvious it wasn't as it went along. I would have understood if you moved it. Here on in I'll use this forum for future vids. I have a new series in mind- cheking out RB plugins on tracks. I'll be sure to launch the series right here in this appropriate forum!

They must be scared of you; I made one video and they moved it right away!

OK, they PM'd me and said politely they would like to move it to the right forum, but still!

I'd appreciate seeing the questions in the Tips section get moved to where they belong. It'll take a little effort from staff, but it would improve the forum.

Thanks Peter

Hey Dan,
I've watched your user videos, and thoroughly enjoyed them--and learned quite a few things. Somehow, I got to this spot where I can listened to some of your tunes made the same way. I haven't listened to all of them yet, but Heart of Gold really hit's home. It's a wonderful country song! You have alot of heart yourself, the best thing a musician can have. Bless you, my friend. Just keep at it, one of these days, you'll be where you want to be. (If you're not already there.) Please make more great videos for us BBers to enjoy.
Sincerely,
Griff

I wonder if renaming the forum "Users can post helpful tips here" would help? Based on the forum title I can see where someone would post here LOOKING for a tip or a trick.

Hi I have found out how to change settings on the BIAB program and some keyboards so that the chords from
BIAB control the keyboard, but the keyboard can use all of its styles, voices, multi pads, break button and many other effects. This can be done live while the song is being played.

I promise fantastic results. See the tutorial at--- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7vucwldHvU

Hope you check it out.
Rocco

Go to this forum, where you see a list of posts by Subject. Near the top, after where it says Post your own tips and tricks here, there is a row of blue buttons. Click on the one that says 'Post'.
