The number of styles designated as Mexican or Tex-Mex I have found in Band-in-a-Box is very limited. I'm wanting to create some "huapangueros" such as Linda Ronstadt's Rogaciano El Huapanguero. Also, I had sequenced several traditional Mexican folkloricos such as Las Mananitas which require a very solid 3/4 time.

Perhaps there are styles that could be used for this type music; for example: songss by groups such as "The Hometown Boys" (Mexican polkas), "Los Super Seven" (La Sirena, El Canoero, Margarita), Flaco Jimenez (The Free Mexican Air Force) or "Los Tigres Del Norte" (songs with "corrido" in their name), but I haven't found them.

If someone could make some styles with real tracks or point me to some currently available styles that I could use, I would be most appreciative.

I had also requested some of the more modern styles as well in a previous post. Along with examples - as someone was wanting/willing to create some user content (or appeared to be).

Not all the links may still be "alive" - but hopefully enough to be representative.

... the 49 pack 2017 does have 3/4 Mariachi, and a Mexican polka realtrack. So the more traditional styles have some coverage.

I'd love to see those new Mariachi styles expanded to include Mexican trumpets and violins.

Since some of the arranger keyboards are beginning to offer models that reflect various musical styles from around the world, might it be time for BIAB to begin thinking about categorizing musical styles across cultures? Just a thought.

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.
