Hi all, as suggested by Peter Gannon here are my original songs done in BiaB and RealBand.

Sorry Peter I can't remember all or even some of the effects/reverb etc (hence my request in the wishlist for a memo on each track in RealBand)

1. Dreams of You

This song was written for someone who has lost a very good friend but believes that one day they will be back together.

Style is _CRYSTAL.STY (Ctry 12-8 Bal w PedSteel (65 RS))

RealTracks in style: 533:Bass, Electric, 12-8 Crystal Sw 065
RealTracks in style: ~526:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Hank Sw 065
RealTracks in style: ~529:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 065
RealTracks in song: ~627:Guitar, Pedal Steel, Background 12-8 Crystal Sw
RealDrums in Song: Nashville128^03-SideStick


2. You Walked Away

This song was just an experiment out of the blue. I was trying to get a Spanish feel but got this instead.

Style is _DIRE_SL.STY (Med RockBal w Dire ElGt (85 RS))
:
RealTracks in style: ~518:Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~362:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~508:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev 085
RealTracks in song: ~511:Guitar, Electric, Soloist Dire Ev 140
RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven8^1-SideStick,Ride


3. Can You See Me

Once again just messing around and thought about looking for someone or something (hint in there, listen to the end and you will understand)

Style is UKPWRBAL.STY (UKPowerBallad -Loose Slow Rock)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Finger Electric Bass (34), Brass Section (62), Acoustic Guitar (26), Strings (49),
MIDI Drums :1 Standard Drum Kit (1)

Converted Midi to Audio in RealBand

Sorry don't remember all realtracks, I know that I dropped one from Biab to RealBand
i.e. BBGuitar_Real_SingleRender_DragDrop_2 (1)


4. The Mary Beth

I was attempting to write a folk song and thought about my father on a ship in the second world war.
I changed it to be more oldie worldly and came up with this.

Melody has 615 notes, I chose a flute but can't remember which Melody I chose.
Style is EAGLE2+.STY (Medium tempo Country Rock+)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Acoustic String Bass (33), Acoustic Piano (1), Acoustic Guitar (26), Slow Strings (50),
MIDI Drums :1 Standard Drum Kit (1)

I will post more songs as time permits.

Thanks
Michee

User Tip - Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)

Forum user Pipeline shares a great 'tip' with his post Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!

User Post - Save as Video

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

Forum user JoanneCooper has just shared her Band-in-a-Box video using this feature! Check out her post here, or click here watch her YouTube video.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
