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.

Many thanks to all who contribute to this thread/subject. I found Dan's to be a very easy way to understand a semi-complex subject. It has opened some new doors for me. Most helpful. THANKS!

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
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7Wk0beeKYo


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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
