Welcome to the UserTracks Wishlist

UserTracks are user-created RealTracks. You need version 2014 of Band-in-a-Box to use or create UserTracks.

Since UserTracks are made by other users (and not by PG Music), you can ask others if they would like to make UserTracks for a style that you would like.

Typically these would be for "simpler" styles that wouldn't be too time consuming for a user to make, or "specialty" type styles or instruments.

For example, maybe you want a style with a 12-string guitar strumming quarter notes, or playing held notes. But you don't play guitar (or own a 12 string). So you place the request in this forum.

Each request should be in a separate thread. If a user plans to make the style you are requesting, they should reply asap to the thread, so that 2 people aren't working on the same request.

Sample Post:
Quote:
(from Mike) Hi all, I'd like a simple 12-string guitar style. Playing held chords. Mainly a pop style, so maj, min chords, and a few dom7, dim, and sus chords. Tempo about 85 would be good, even feel (though that doesn't matter since these are held chords)


Quote:
Hi Mike, Yes, I'll make that UserTracks and make it available free to you or others. I should have it ready within a week.


Anyone replying should give a time frame, such as a reply like this: "I should have it ready within a week." Please no "nebulous" replies like "I'm very busy now, but if I get free time I might make that style for you"

Once the UserTracks is ready, you should make it available like any other UserTracks. You should make a .zip file of the UserTracks folder, and then make a downloadable link to the .zip file (Many sites will help you with having a downloadable file available – dropbox.com is one of them. There are others listed here: http://www.ebizmba.com/articles/file-sharing-websites

Note: This forum is for wishlist for UserTracks that you would like others to make. There is a separate UserTracks forum here: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=75&page=1

Also, there is a separate forum for posting wishlist items for PG Music to make RealTracks. Those would be typically made for RealTracks that would be more involved or would require a top studio musician to play them.

Hi,

I am looking for someone who is a Guru at making tracks. I am a singer with very little knowledge on how to get the tracks like I want them. I can tell you how I kinda want the arrangement if you can make it happen. I plan on doing a few of these every month and need somebody to partner with. I can pay you per track or do a split on cd baby and other sites where we sell the tracks.

Is it also Possible to assign when the track comes in? Say I want a horn part to only come in on a chorus but be syncopated. Is this possible?

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
