I play and sing live solo performances 2-3 time a per week. The jukebox allows me to create folders of songs for each performance. I put numbers in front of each title to create performance order. (1.,2.,3. Etc.). I select it to pause between songs until there is midi input via the computer space bar.
If there two performances on the same day, I create a second folder of selected songs as the venue requires.
At home, to keep my "chops" I choose the entire folder of hundreds of tunes and play in the jukebox random mode.

Using the jukebox set to "random" is a great way to practice repertoire!
If you just want to practice the melodies, you can even choose to have it play only one chorus. Great feature, I use it daily.
Also have folders called "all chords, all keys" with all the modes in one key, but transposed twelve times. Randomly playing within that folder makes you practice all modes in all keys in no particular order. Same with the "stella in twelve keys"-folder or blues or rhythm cha,ges in all keys...

#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!

#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.
