What about our own Youtube channels, are those eligible when they contain our own BBox creations?

It's so good to hear that. To be honest I was initially concerned that this would just serve as another "let's pat ourselves on the back and get lots of praising we can use for free to promote BBox, yayh!" forum (See that 'other' recent forum you created, which has already backfired).
But with this angle added to the mix, at least this one may potentially also serve to promote our own stuff or other musicians along the way cool

What about this one - "Concept Video?
Is that too far outside the square?

In that case. These are some early backing tracks that I recorded with live vocals and guitar. (1st or 2nd take). I gradually change the backing tracks and external effects. Recently, I've been reprogramming my Nova Guitar effects. On my 'to do' list is some work on the VoiceLive 2 vocal effects.

I put them up on YouTube so I am able to look at them from anywhere for my personal education and to see if I'm improving as a performer grin I'm mainly interested in my singing. I might record some recent ones to compare. eek

Right, I'm going to resist the temptation of 'tooting my own horn' for at least this first tip (my YT channel is in my sig anyway) and instead point your attention to Maurizio's aptly named "Virtual Band" channel that I subscribed to: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdG-u1WGSAVUdl34PUwNdVw

And then there's this massive monster of a channel, by someone all the way from Australia (not really sure why that bit impressed me but it did), who uses BBox extensively, with some videos going up to 3 whole hours: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9GAPznIYJ6cmMWbY48NIA
Granted, to those of us on here that listen a lot to the songs & demos that come with the program, a few of the songs (mainly chord progressions) may perhaps sound somewhat 'familiar'. But seeing as this guy is giving a junk of his income from his albums to charity, I for my part am quite willing to let such minor niggles slide smile

Hi VideoTrack,

This video would be best posted on a WishList forum as it's showing what you'd like Band-in-a-Box to be, not how you or others use Band-in-a-Box currently. Very cool concepts!

Can I post cover songs I performed using backing tracks I've created with Band in a Box? I don't write a lot of original songs, but create a lot of tracks for covers I do with steel pan.

To clarify the types of posts for this forum....

*** Anything *** can be posted that is on youtube, and has some connection to Band-in-a-Box. The key word here is anything. So you don't need pre-approval.

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:
