Have not been gigging in over a year - too much day job. But when I do find the time, my rig will look something like this. Few know that the VLT is a full featured audio interface which allows routing mic and guitar in and 1/4 inch to the PA.

Dan,

Looks great! The only thing I'd add is the lyrics on that screen.

Break a Leg Dan!

PS: Is that an Ipad you have BIAB running on?

Later,

Hey Dan,

would you be willing to demo that on the next forum skype session? I'd like to see and hear what it can do! Based on the photo, it looks very interesting!

tentative time and date for the next multi-user forum video skype session is the 3rd Sunday in February, which I believe is the 16th. Time would be 7 pm (eastern time)


The reason for waiting until the 16th is that Lloyd is on a cruise, and that's the first weekend after he gets back.

Floyd is going to be so fat when he returns he won't be able to reach his keyboard! Cruises do that to people you know.

Hi Pat, Do you know if it's possible to record a Skype session? It would be great for those of us who are unable to join in.

Good question Keith! I suspect it is possible with screen capture software. But maybe the critical question isn't so much whether or not its possible, as much as whether or not the big ol' dummy Pat can figure out how to do it. wink

I'll look into it... If I can figure it out, we'll go from there.

thanks Mike! That's a good head start!

I'm also looking at Camtasia, but its kind of pricey... the upshot is that I could use it for other things too.

I already have SNAGIT... it can capture the screen, but I'm not sure it can capture the audio too... maybe the audio can be captured separately with Audacity and merged

But I may also try a digital camcorder set to receive its signal from the computer. That's already paid for.... (cheap route first...)


So many ideas, so little money...

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Joanne summarizes the steps she took to produce her cover of "Old Lang Syne" - her final result was posted to the User Showcase Forum: Listen to Auld Lang Syne

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

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 love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
