I took her vocal and made a backing track with Biab. It's just a down and dirty file.

That's pretty cool. I've thought about doing some remixes on songs using isolated vocal tracs. Using BIAB to do it would probably make it rather so ple and interesting. Thanks for sharing.

I found a raw vocal of Adele on YouTube and then proceeded to make an arrangement in Biab.

That sounds really impressive and shows us what biab is really capable of, well done.

It's fun to do and not that difficult. I work with a songwriting partner and most of the time I come up with the basic idea for the bed, send that to her, and she develops the melody/lyrics.

But for this one she already had the vocal melody and lyrics done. She sent me over the vocal track and I figured out what chord changes would work, sorted out an arrangement, and built a suitable bed.

you should participate in remix contests. Original artists make their individual tracks available, and encourage people like us to recreate the song using the original vocals.

Here's a link to one of our forum members' remix entries, with links to the original files:

Very impressed Trax. Makes us realise how important a good vocal/vocalist is for our recordings.

I will suggest not confining your covers to just isolated vocals. Signature riffs and licks are abundant and easily downloaded as well. Here is a YouTube link to Don Felder giving a lesson on all of his licks, solos and riffs for Hotel California. He has transposed the song to Am, which is likely a better key for a lot of voices than the original key. Don is very solid on his timing as well and this makes a very authentic cover as all the signature licks are there. Plus, Don Felder is your session musician along with all of the great PGMusic session musicians. A true All Star Band.

Don Felder Hotel California Guitar Lesson

A tip to quickly get isolated vocals or other stems into BIAB or RB is to download the original song and run it through the ACW for the chord chart and an accurate tempo map in the original key. That will also give you a good guide for inserting the vocals into the BIAB backing track.

Some prolific singers on YouTube I've found that perform useable vocal/guitar songs are Alan Robinson, Austin Criswell and Larry L. (Podline66). Search for Larry L's early works that were done before he began to do a lot of post producing himself on his songs. Alan Robinson does tutorials but at the beginning of each lesson, records a complete performance of the song. Austin Criswell, I think, is a brilliant singer.

There are also many American Idol, America's Got Talent and The Voice performers who upload covers and originals with simple guitar or piano accompaniment that will have excellent vocal performances.

Very cool and lots of fun. I didn't listen because it wouldn't stream.

I did the same thing back in 2009 with Imogen Heap's vocal. The idea was to create a backing track. This is a combination of BB as well as me playing the guitar parts.

I've posted this here before.....

That was a great backing track. Biab can compete with the Big Dogs when it comes to making music.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
