The good thing is that my performance will make you look forward to Joanne's and Pat's shows even more (ha, ha).

@ Danny Campo:

just a thought, but I've noticed a few SJ performers who set up the web cam when playing gigs and stream the whole thing.

That might be the perfect combination for you, providing the gig location has WIFI that you can use.

I signed up for the 9:30am slot (eastern) on Saturday for an early morning show before Joanne and Pat.

I am off to radio shack today to buy a 1/8 stereo to 1/4 mono jack to plug my mp3 player into my audio device. If the conversion from stereo to mono is not too awful, I plan on doing a three song set with backing tracks after Pat is done. If the sound isn't good enough, then I will wait until I get a mixer to use backing tracks. I figure a $7 adapter is worth the risk!

The mixer I am looking at is the Peavey PV 6 USB Compact USB Mixer. With 10% off for the columbus day sale, I can get it for $90. I can plug in my mic (needs external phantom power, since the PV6 only has 15V phantom) to one input, my electric guitar cable into the 3/4 input (I have a stereo output cable from my gdec headphone out) and the RCA tape in from my mp3 player. I think that should work. As always, the reviews are from 5* to folks complaining that there is too much noise from the USB connection (and that seems to be a common complaint from usb mixer users). Nothing is ever straightforward and easy!

EDIT: of course, the 10% discount doesn't apply! It is already on-sale at $100.

the mixer looks like a fun addition to your SJ setup! I look forward to hearing the songs you play with backing tracks!

(And thanks for saving it until I can watch...)

The webcam says I am using the US-224 A/B for audio --> but the dang thing only hears what is being plugged into the "A" channel!! I can't figure out how to tell it to listen to both the A & B channels!

No backing tracks for me tomorrow -- unless I just put the boom box behind me (ha, ha).

Kevin, before you give up on trax tomorrow, why not check the local craig's list or guitar center for a mixer? With a little luck, you could have a new or used mixer in your possession this very evening...

ya know, that's not a bad idea if you're playing an acoustic set anyway...

I'm cancelling my early morning set. I have to go into the big city of charlottesville this morning and I don't know when I will return. I hopefully will get back in time to see Joanne and Pat do their sets.

There goes your big tip! I guess I'll split it with Joanne and Pat.

thanks to everybody who stuck around during my train wreck. I'm pretty sure JosieC sabotaged me somehow, but I'm not yet sure how she pulled it off. ;-)

but, the good news is that I EXPECT things to go wrong during a learning curve. Its part of what SJ is all about, seeing what works and what fails, while in the presence of knowledgeable people who can offer suggestions and solutions.

The ironic thing is that I thought I HAD turned off the screen saver... apparently not

At least JosieC's wonderfulness made it worthwhile for the people who came for the show

Hi Pat. I enjoyed what I saw of your performance but had to leave because I am getting VERY frustrated with my slow internet connection!!!

I don't think everyone understands how hard it is trying to do everything yourself. It is especially difficult when you cant hear anything!! Singing, remembering chords and lyrics, playing, sound engineering as well as engaging the audience. Not easy. Looks easy but it's not.

At least when we are playing live gigs we hear what is going on around us and with jelly I find it frustrating that I can't hear what I sound like. I guess we gotta keep an eye on the screen and look for feedback interactively.

Well done for coming back. We all appreciated it and you got some great comments.

I went ahead and ordered the PV6 USB Mixer -- I hope it is the right one. The main complaint about all these low end mixers is the potential for noise. According to the reviews, some of the units are quiet and some of them are terribly noisy. I hope I get a good one!

Kevin,
I think you'll be VERY happy with it! What might be considered noisy in a recording studio won't be a problem playing on SJ

The mixer opens up options you just don't have with only a mic.Can't wait to hear your first set with trax.

Pat,

I’m sorry I missed your show and Joanne’s. I didn’t get back until around 1 o’cl and both of you had finished. I’ll try to catch the next one.

I just noticed that they are posting show times in Central Standard Time. That should eliminate some confusion. Also, if you click on "follow this artist" it will email a reminder just prior to the performance.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

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.
