Hi,
We want to assemble a list of user-made BB tutorial videos. We'll put links to them on our site, on this page http://www.pgmusic.com/videos.user.htm

So please let us know of any tutorial "how-to" type videos on using Band-in-a-Box. Most of these would be on youtube. Please include a brief description of what the video is about, and of course a link to ir.

You don't need to be the creator of the video to tell us about it.

Note: This is only for VIDEO based tutorials.
We'll have a separate topic for other tutorials (text)

Please use the following format:

Topic: Using F5 (Bar Settings) to tell who to play what and when in BIAB
Author: Dan (aka Jazzmandan)
Description: Alway felt this was one of the top newbee questions, so I put together this video. A simple demo which shows how to use F5 (Bar Settings) to have different instruments step into different parts of the song. Example is done with Autumn Leaves having different RT soloists playing at different times (including the intro, choruses and specific bars) and leaving room for my vocals and solo to come in.

Peter, I am a singer. If I produce a video I will have to use a Popular Song by typing in the chords. I want to display the joy of singing with BIAB. I realize this may not be allowed due to copyright infringement. What is your take on this? Is this allowed or no? Same question for performing live Jazz tunes in small lounges. Would this be a major problem?

Hey Gorilla,
If you make a backing track of nothing but chords, then maybe put a BB melody (solo) in the middle, you're not duplicating the song. Many chord progressions are similar. So, should not be an infringement, since if you play it by itself, it doesn't sound like any song in particular. But if you want to sing in a lounge, music played there should be covered by the use fees, paid by the establishment, that are paid yearly to BMI and ASCAP. It's no different than if you were in a cover band working the venue. They almost never sound like the record. Kind of like a poor man's karoke, except it you want to validate yourself, you'll likely be playing your guitar and doing a vocal, or something similar. You're just having an electronic noise maker help you sing the song. The use fees should cover that, since for heaven's sake, you're not ripping off anybody. Cover bands do it, why not you. Except you're working your tail off creating some sounds to help you get through the song. This whole concept is a step down from being a DJ, but still allows you to sing and play. I didn't ask anybody about this, so if you're in doubt, ask other musicians who do something similar. There is at least 1 fantastic singer in my area who came all the way from Ireland to do exactly as I have described, and after several years, he's still playing the club he started at. He's not hurting anybody, not getting rich (well, I don't know that. Maybe the tips are good). Anyway, he's a pro, and well known here, and abroad. I know the club is paying use fees, as prescribed for any club. So, all should be well for you and me, as well. Hope this helps.
Griff

BIAB Chords Drive Keyboard
By Barley

Hi I uploaded 2 videos on youtube showing how to set up BIAB and the Tyros 4 keyboard, so that the chords from BIAB songs are detected by the Tyros and the Tyros provided any style from the keyboard and applied it to the songs. Two good tutorials.
Check out the two videos at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7vucwldHvU

These tutorials are also in Forum in "Tips and Tricks Section.

Hi Rocco,
Yes, excellent demo.

I'm a new BIAB user. Did you use the keyboard because you like the sounds better than
the ones that come with BIAB?

Thanks
Debb

Hi Debb,

The technique in my videos help to make playing a song easier for a non- professional like me. There are many good styles and v0ices on the Tyros 4, so that's part of the insentive, But the biggest advantage to the set up is that it allows "LIVE changes in styles voices and other sound features, like Multi Pads, on Tyros.

It adds a sort of professional sound to a "bad" keyboard player.

See My latest additon to the tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxozIi4YXsA

A new tutorial to compliment earlier tutorials on BIAB Chords Drives Keyboard.

This shows how to set-up Resistrations, and PAT (Performance Assistant Technology" set-up
so you can pre-program style and voice changes using BIAB Chord Drive,. It also shows how to take advantage of PAT on Yamaha Keyboards, which allows 'Poor' player to to hit any key on the keyboard and only sounds that are compatible with the chords from BIAB will be played. The normal - progressive scale is gone, and only chord compatible sounds are avalable.

Check it out at ------ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxozIi4YXsA

Thank you for making your video about using the audio chord wizard. Well worth watching. I most appreciated adding the drum and bass tracks to show how easy it is to match an existing track even if the track has wide variations in tempo. Couldn't believe how well they matched your guitar track.

By the way, your guitar track sounded O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G !!!

Thanks for the supportive direction, Mr. Gannon.
I see, a few of us are igniting or re-igniting
interest in video, lately.
