I've seen performers using backing tracks. You just can't record a video and play that.

Cool! And you can do covers too! That seals it for me!

I'm off work today and tomorrow... will you be performing either of those two days?

Probably not. I need to practice some more and add some guitar work to spice up the songs. I think once I have a couple of sets ready, I'll play 2 or 3 times a week. It is fun, for sure. I also try and catch at least part of a show or two every day.

Let us know when you are going on!

thanks for posting the link Kevin.. I have a feeling you've a set a very large ball in motion. It wouldn't surprise me to see a BUNCH of forum members performing there.

As you noted, the format lends itself to what we do.

Already Silvertones and Jo are gearing up. I want to see a lot of others here, but I won't start naming names for fear of leaving one out and accidentally offending a friend. But if you're reading this.. assume that I want to see YOU performing !

Kevin,

I missed your shows sorry but I did watch some of your videos and enjoyed them. I took a look a few acts on air last evening. It looks like fun.

Could somebody explain to me how you would set it up to use backing tracks?

Thanks.

I certainly hope so! It would be great to see some of you in a "live" setting. The chances of us catching your act in person is pretty slim!

Since my audio device passed on the mic sound so easily, I though I could crank up sonar and play those backing tracks and play along -- NOPE! The web cam only got the live mic sound. I think you need a usb mixer like this or this. That way whatever goes into the mixer will come out as a stereo channel via your USB. At least that is how I understand it!

The site indicates that there are instructions somewhere about how to do this.. but I couldn't find them. Has anybody else found them? If so, post the link.

I created my profile today, but its all lies. There's no way I'm saying anything remotely true about myself. At this age truth doesn't market well.




I notice Silvertones has also created a profile. I looked for Jos but apparently she hasn't created hers yet

Gonna set up my profile soon......

Josie I am going to try using my ordinary old mixer. Mic the voice and mic the guitar in separate channels and then use my ipod in another channel as input for the backing tracks. Will let you know how I do with that!

on another note:
I hope that anybody who decides to go live will post a blurb here beforehand.

In fact, let us know once you've signed up and created a profile. If another member puts you on their favorite list they'll automatically be notified if you schedule a performance.

Although it looks like you can perform without being scheduled. Today a couple of dudes who weren't on the schedule went on the air. In the case of spontaneous performance, I don't know if the favorite list gets notified or not

on using backing tracks

just to cover the base sent this email to their support staff

while i would be playing my guitar and singing live am i permitted to use backing tracks created with band in a box and mixed in along with my live performance on streetjelly

got this response from Frank Podlaha at streetjelly

Yes, Mike. Backtracks, looping devices, etc. are all acceptable on StreetJelly. The "no recordings" headline means no full playback of mp3s, videos, etc.

Rock on!

Mike,
does this mean you'll be appearing live sometime soon?



I spent most of the day perusing the site, reading profiles (many of which have embedded videos) and watching a few "on the air" presentations. There are some talented people on that site... but I think the people from this forum will compare favorably to the vast majority of contenders getting up there with an acoustic guitar.

Y'all have put lots of love into your songs, and PGMusic products have put this group ahead of the curve (while users of other software are still trying to finish the song, y'all finished your songs easily then spent the rest of your time learning the tricks of mixing and mastering)

You all have excellent products, and more than a few are seasoned performers. I can't wait to watch the PGMusic forum members carve out their own niche on StreetJelly.

And it would be great if we gave PGMusic a plug or two at every performance.

Mike: Thanks for the confirmation on the backing tracks. Always good to know the official policy!

Pat: Although I have heard folks use backing tracks there, I haven't seen anyone do a tightly integrated show. I think that would be interesting for sure. As always some will love it and some will bemoan the use of technology (ha, ha).

I, for one, would love to hear some jazz sets. And, of course, the singer/songwriters with full productions. ... and covers! It might be nice to do a couple of full production numbers and then one "naked" one (figuratively speaking) for contrast.

I think I mentioned the BIAB product and the forum at both shows I did. I hope to see some BIAB'ers there soon. I see that Pat and Silvertones signed up. More please!

I asked them that very question:
Yes, absolutely you can use backing tracks, loopers, etc. When we say, "no recordings," we really mean that folks just don't play their mp3's/or premade videos and not perform live.

Have a great show!

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.

Read even more great feedback here.
