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

Great question Icelander! Yes, please feel free to post a link to a specific video you yourself have done using Band-in-a-Box in some way!

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

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.

Andrew,

Why not have a Band In A Box YouTube channel where users' BIAB videos could be accessed in one place? Like your Soundcloud channel? There are some really good vids being done by users (myself excluded) grin , and the visual aspect might help sell the program.


Regards,

Bob

I've got a couple of my own YouTube channels. It would be interesting if this could be done. You can't really repost videos to the actual channel without re-uploading the video.

You can, however, create a playlist akin to SoundCloud!

No word on if this will be done, but we do appreciate the great idea!
