We recently attended The NAMM Show where we demonstrated Band-in-a-Box® to anyone who wanted to learn more about the program.

This video, recorded by STUDIO.SE, stars Band-in-a-Box®, Charlie, and Gaelan - watch it for a quick demonstration on starting a song by simply picking a style and typing in chords:



It really is as easy as we say it is!

Band-in-a-Box® is so easy to use! Just type in the chords for any song using standard chord symbols (like C, Fm7, or C13b9), choose the style you'd like, and Band-in-a-Box® does the rest... Band-in-a-Box® automatically generates a complete professional-quality arrangement of piano, bass, drums, guitar, and strings or horns.

Enjoyed that. It's a shame that based on the limited time available, people only get to see the very basics of what the program can actually do. Barely scratch the surface, so to speak.

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

With Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows you have more control over your toolbars!

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

#TipTuesday Want to switch between your custom toolbar and the taller toolbar? Just select Ctrl+T!

#TBT - The Metronome Pro!

In honor of "Throwback Thursday" (#TBT), let's take a look at the Metronome Pro! This program was released in 2006, and is a great way to keep the correct tempo when you're practicing!

The Metronome Pro can be used as a basic "old school" metronome and includes advanced features to take your tempo practice to a new level. In its basic mode, Metronome Pro will keep perfect time as you practice along while the advanced features provide additional practice tools such as increase tempo, trade 4's, even a song length calculator. All possible time signatures are supported, including composite time. If you need a drummer, Metronome Pro can easily be turned into a drum machine to play the drum track from any standard MIDI file.

Learn more about this program (available for just $19) here: www.pgmusic.com/metronomepro.htm - it's an excellent tool for musicians of any level!
