Yes, it is really great as you can hear in this video.



Quite impressive. In the hands (and mouth) of the skilled player, this would fool most. I looked away while he was playing the tenor sax, and to my ear, I would be fooled - particularly if this would have been less 'naked' with a piano player, drummer and bass player along for the ride.

I still have my BC-2, which I use with my Yamaha CS6X keyboard...a very nice and rugged 'dance-oriented' keyboard with sampling. Wish the TEC wasn't so expensive...oh, well!

I noticed that Hello music has the EWI 4000S for under $500. Not being a woodwind player, I don't know if this is a good deal or not. Hello Music's pricing sometimes seems fantastic, at other times not so great. Here's a link - says "sign in for member pricing" - so maybe there's a bit of a price break there.

They don't exactly give it away, but it is way cheaper than any other alternatives. Consider that just the Midi solutions converter box costs $200 and then you still need to find a used BC3, which goes on ebay for more than $300...

Or the MRT controller, which costs $350...

Mac,
That's exactly why I have hung onto my Yamaha CS6X and Motif ES...well, they're great keyboard/synths in themselves, but being able to plug in my BC controller...it is not hard to move the reeds into some exotic and life-like modus-operandi!!!

Beautiful piece of hardware but the price is painful.

Samplemodeling just released their new amazing flutes. This sounds great with breath controller. The demo video is terrific (breath controller starts approx 1m25s in the video)

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This breath controller seems really fantastic. Is anyone using it successfully with Band-in-a-Box on Windows?

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
