I did this with BIAB 2010.5. I'm still hoping for the new version as a Christmas present, but it isn't looking good.

http://kenblog05.blogspot.com/2011/12/god-rest-ye-merry-gentlemen.html

You might notice that I use pedal bass in this. Since I don't have the new pedal bass feature, this is done by sampling bass notes and pasting them into the mix with Audacity. Ugh! Does anyone have an example of one their tunes using the new pedal bass feature in 2012?

I'm using:

Medium tempo modern jazz trio
783 Tenor Sax Jazzwaltz SW 140 Bluesy (this is not a waltz, but this solo sounded the best to me)
463 Trumpet, Jazzsw 140 Blues

Also, how come nobody credits the BIAB musicians on their websites/blogs? I like to give them credit (although I'm sure they would be embarrassed to be associated with my hackery). Am I not supposed to be doing this for some reason?

Cool , I like the Funny V in the middle and how you tied them together ! Pretty neat that you've decided to play Jazz piano after 50 ,you're doing good ! Had to listen to Porgy too. Don't know about crediting the musicians themselves since it got mashed together via Biab . Ask in Biab forum I bet someone here knows.

Thank you guys! I didn't realize there was a different BIAB forum. It would seem since they went through the trouble of letting us know who these excellent players on the realtracks are, that we should ack them, unless they would prefer to be anonymous.

I got this reply on the regular BIAB forum. It makes a lot of sense to me....

"There is no policy, but to list the musicians would imply to many that they actually played on your session, which is, of course, not the case. No problem saying that you are using tracks/loops created by those players. Most conscientious users would simply acknowledge PG Music in some way"

Loved it, great effort in fact I am listening to the rest of your posted tunes as I type.

I love your phrasing, very smooth indeed.


Merry Christmas,

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
