Hi all,

I usually just use he straight Bebop and Swing type real tracks. I've been learning the Wes Montgomery tune OGD (Road Song). Has anyone found real tracks similar to the groove on the Wes - Jimmy Smith recording?

This kind of stuff is called jazz boogaloo, sort of a old school funky latin feel. There isn't a style that I'm aware of for this but it's a good suggestion. The thing about RT styles is they're not fixed like the midi styles are. With midi the style elements are actually created by the author or user so you could create this in midi perfectly. Of course then you lose the sound quality of the RT's. But midi can sound really good with a high quality synth to play them.

RT styles are really not styles at all. Since RT's are prerecorded audio tracks you can't change anything but there are so many of them now that I think it's possible to put some together to get close to this. Or, maybe a midi/RT hybrid style.

I play Road Song using BIAB as a backing track.

Currently I use _BOSORGS (Bossa Organ Soloist with band)
I mute the Organ solo & dial back both the b3 and the guitar.
Perhaps not perfect but its a decent groove.


If you dig Wes,check out Grant Green's "The Latin Bit". Its a killer.
His version of My Little Suede Shoes knocks me out.


Good luck.

Hi,
I came to this discussion rather late...
I've been using the -ZAWINUL.STY which I rather like.
What do you all think?

Not at my PC but maybe it’s an underscore rather than hyphen?

Yes, it's in the 'Misc.' set, it's MIDI from November 2006. Spelling is correct.

Hi,
Not sure what set it's in.
I'm on annual leave at the moment so can't access BIAB
I recall that it's actually a mix of MIDI and RT.
I've been using it for a long time so... older

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.
