Hi, We've added a list of all songs posted to the user showcase, and it can be accessed from this page

http://www.pgmusic.com/user-showcase/?genre=jazz

It is also accessible from the Main forum page, below the user showcase.

It lists forum member name, genre, and a link to the forum post, where the user can get the link and discussion.

Note: If anyone doesn't want their songs listed on this page (or listed in the forum in general), please let us know and we'll remove them.

That's a super job, guys/gals. What an incredible number of songs!

Boy!Curiosity is sure going to keep me busy for awhile.

Thanks for doing that for everyone.

Cheers - Ian

Awesome job on this! I didn't make the list (boo hoo), but congratulations to every one that did. There is sure a lot of good material here!

Brilliant idea, now I can REALLY waste time, in a good way, by listening to them all in one convenient place!
Thanks, and I agree with Ian Fraser "What an incredible number of songs!"

Did you have a song posted RodM? Is the link still working? It doesn't appear they picked and chose through them from Peters description. Did you use any PGMusic Products on the song and describe how?
Otherwise you should have been in the list I would assume. Oversight? Possible.

Hi Bob,

I'm sorry I sounded "hurt" on earlier post. I now realize they went through the older posts, not the brand new user forum songs. After listening to all the incredible talent on the listed genres, I certainly wouldn't blame BIAB for showcasing the best songs. The trouble with that is, they all sound great to me. How would you choose?
I had a bunch of older songs using BIAB, but I quickly took them down because I didn't think my songs were good enough to post so BIAB would have seen a broken link on those songs. I have some new Christmas songs using BIAB Midi and real tracks "A BIAB Christmas".
Any way I agree with Ian too. There is an incredible amount of talent using an phenomenal product (BIAB). I know I am grateful to have such a good product. For me, this is the only software where every upgrade is a "must have".

Thanks,
RodM

I am a living example of a small flaw in the logic. One song listed was housed at Soundcloud but has been taken down. Do we have an "update" process so we can avoid people going to apparently broken links when the song was taken down on purpose?

But a GREAT idea and we all appreciate the shortcut to listening to other user's work.

I think they went through the songs in this forum section, so if posted in another forum section they likely weren't included.

I wonder the same thing as Eddie. Since these links rely on songs existing on the user's server, can they be editable so as to keep them live in the event of the user changing severs? Maybe allowing the original poster some edit options later.. I'd like that.

Hi,
To echo everyone else: "An upgrade process to edit a link after the fact would be a great feature."
Bob,
I also noticed the incredible amount of work it took to put the user showcase list together. I don't think genre was listed on many of the original posts, but I guess the real tracks or midi tracks used would indicate genre. I did post my songs in this forum but it's really OK. I think the user showcase list of songs is current up to a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I'll make the next list. That is of course if I don't lose my nerve and hurry and delete my soundclick account. Nobody (except my wife) knows I'm into music anymore. It is a big step for me personally to post music public. I hope to rediscover a love of music I once had in my youth. I guess that is something I can still do privately too.
Thanks again,
RodM

Hi,
We've updated the list, to list songs that are newest and use lots of RealTracks/RealBand or BB in general nearest the top. Also added a tab called RealTracks that has songs that use lots of RealTracks.

Band-in-a-Box® Version 2017 for Windows Build 464 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows customers can install the latest patch update (Build 464) here: www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#464

Added: The RealTracks Settings dialog now has a choice of low/medium/high for Elastique stretching quality, instead of just high quality on or off (high quality off meant medium).
Fixed: Chord sheet fonts were limited to a maximum size that would not quite fill the cells. This would cause superscript extensions to sit too high above the roots.
Fixed: Elastique stretching items were missing from the RealTracks Settings dialog.
Fixed: If pasting a single line of text into a layer using the layer context menu, nothing would be pasted.
Fixed: If pasting multiple lines of text into a layer, the last line would be skipped.
Fixed: Shift+Arrow keys were not working to highlight regions on the chord sheet.
Fixed: The "Select Hi-Q MIDI Patch Plugin" menu item should be available to the Melody, Soloist, and Thru tracks.
Fixed: The Help button in the MultiDrums dialog did not do anything
Fixed: The media player in the Hi-Q patch dialog did not have a volume control.
Fixed: The number pad keys 0, 1, 2 would trigger looping features are inappropriate times (eg. when in the song memo, or when selecting the chorus ending bar, etc.)
Fixed: The visual metronome would take over the StylePicker window when playing song demo.
Fixed: When running Band-in-a-Box with factory settings the floating mixer would appear in the top left corner of the screen the first time it was opened.
Fixed: When the "auto-resize" is enabled for the floating mixer, stopping playback should only move it back to the maximized position if it was in that position prior to playback.

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac - Toolbar Modes #TipTuesday

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac offers you more control over your toolbars!

With the redesigned GUI in Band-in-a-Box® 2017, there are now 3 modes for the toolbar! To switch between them, use the the Mode Selector buttons (located at the top left of the screen).

The three modes are:
1. Smaller, configurable toolbar with tabbed interface.
There's a [CUSTOM] tab in this mode that lets you select buttons you want to see in the order you want!

2. Taller toolbar with fixed on-screen Mixer, useful for people with hi-res screens.
All your buttons are there!

3. DAW Mode.
This makes a small screen, always on top, useful for drag and drop of files to your favorite DAW.

#TipTuesday Want a faster way to switch between your custom toolbar and the taller toolbar? Just select Cmd-T!
