This has been an outstanding pak for sure! But I have a question..

The 59 Styles for "Rediscovered" RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks! How are they designated? I THINK I found out how they are, but would like to hear it about it from the horses mouth, as the case may be.... cool

I'm still waiting to hear those extra instruments in "solo" audio demos, as opposed to just within a full band. Can't see any such thing on here yet. And no audio demos for the added Supertracks at all.

As for the "Rediscovered" styles - they simply include one or more RT instrument that until now was not included in any RT style. What's the big mystery here, jcspro40?

There are a couple ways to find the Rediscovered styles. There are two groups of them, Rediscovered MIDI SuperTracks, and Rediscovered RealTracks.

- In the StylePicker, select the "other options" button and select "2017 styles". The Rediscovered styles are from the Set# "Bonus".

- There are demo songs for each of the styles in bb\RealTracks - Demos\Rediscovered RealTracks, and bb\MIDI SuperTracks Demos\Rediscovered SuperTracks.

User Tip - 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

#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.
