The tip published by PG Music on the 18th of September was how to save your BIAB file as a video. I never knew this existed!! I think I might enjoy this feature....

Here is a basic backing track in C major for Amazing Grace. You can use this track to try and pick out the melody by ear or to just play and sing along to.

I am busy with an ear training course with Musical U and I think the folks there, that don't have band-in-Box, may enjoy these videos.

Amazing Grace Practice Track in C Major (folk swing 110 bpm)

RealBand has that also now.
There's a free avi to mp4 converter here to convert the very large avi to smaller mp4 video:

Band-in-a-Box is really the most awesome tool (as if we didnt know that!)

Someone on Musical U said they wished they had this track in a Hawaiian style. So bang, presto, change the style in BIAB, make a video and upload to Youtube. In about 5 minutes flat! Btw, he then asked if that was me on the Pedal Steel wink

Hi bernard. I live in South Africa so it is mid morning here smile

You can use a screen capture program as mentioned by pipeline. I also use www.bandicam.com to make videos from m the screen. You can save it to your C drive and view whenever you want.

Otherwise you can copy the settings and make your own Biab file smile

Wow, how can you not know this feature was in there, Jo, it's been included for at least 3 years now! crazy

Anyway, since this method gives you the chords right into the video, it could potentially make those "educational" clips of your cover songs a whole lot simpler to make cool

p.s. I know you were just whipping out those two demos real quick for the sake of showcasing the feature, and that you're obviously busy with other things, and I'm nothing but a big nitpicker here and yadayada, but well...both of them have the wrong chord at the end smirk

Hi

I get an audio recording on the video but just a black screen for the video itself on my PC. I've tried different codecs and different dimensions. I just used 'Show video file' not 'Upload to Youtube'. I've got two screens, a TV and a monitor and I moved BIAB to both, but still just a blank screen. When I export from BIAB to Youtube. it works fine. See below: (I was just trying to demonstrate/test lyrics)

https://youtu.be/gCVg3q56Ols

Also, the BIAB Save as Video pop up screen hides behind the BIAB main screen. (I reckon that's a bug.) I also have to import it into Youtube. The drag option won't work.

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Joanne summarizes the steps she took to produce her cover of "Old Lang Syne" - her final result was posted to the User Showcase Forum: Listen to Auld Lang Syne

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

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 love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
