If you visit our About page, you will read that Dr. Peter Gannon founded PG Music Inc. in 1988!

With that in mind, there are a lot of video tutorials we've released that answer many of the technical support questions frequently asked, including this blast-from-the-past: Band-in-a-Box (1997): Windows 95 MIDI Setup, narrated by Peter!

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever come across a Mac video equivalent of this concept(?). Granted, just like we never had to really concern ourselves with sound driver issues from the get go, this too is probably easier to both figure out and set up on our front but still, I've seen the question asked and such a video requested for by my fellow (albeit new) Mac users.

Just something for the 'PG department' to consider...

That's because Mac only had to work on a Mac. Windows had to work on a Dell, a Compaq, a Gateway, a homebuilt. Multiple processor and peripheral vendors. Different motherboards, different BIOS's. That's why you had to play the correct driver drill. But once it worked, it worked.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
