Just a short note to remind everyone there has been a Band-in-a-Box UserTracks group since UserTracks were offered as a feature with the release of 2014 Band-in-a-Box.

You do not have to have a Yahoo email address to join. The group is independent of PG Music.

+++ UserTracks Group +++

Did not know of this one, me thinks, so I clicked that link and got:

Your security setting in you browser protected you from a "pop up ad" which wants you to join and download some stuff. Try a different browser and I suspect you will have the joy of clicking on the popup to get to the Yahoo site.

Eddie,

You do have to request to join the group. This action was taken to prevent the group from being flooded with SPAM.

I just tried the link again and it worked fine for me. However, +++ HERE +++ is a fresh link, just in case.

I really do hope you and all users interested in UserTracks will join and start discussions. I started the group so users will have an independent arena to discuss UserTracks. Unfortunately to date there have been numerous users join but very limited discussions.

Fair enuff, thanks for the info and the new link. I'll give it another go, then.

Looking for more easy ways to get more free stuff, no doubt. I'm not in the least bit surprised smirk

p.s. Upon trying your "fresh link" I've just discovered you not only need to "request" joining, it requires you to register to yahoo in the process.
I'm not too keen on obligatory registrations in general, and if the place is as poorly used as you suggest, the incentive is even less.

But well, at least now we all know of the option a bit better (and that fresh link works), so I guess that's still something.

All Yahoo groups require you to register with Yahoo. Just set up a throw-away account, if necessary. But that same account can be used for membership in multiple groups, and when you go to Yahoo Groups logged into that account, all the groups to which you belong will display.

It's been that way for as far back as I can remember (20 years or so).

+++ MIDI KAR or MIDI Music With Style! +++

+++ MIDI KAR (Restricted Group) +++

Thanks Eddie. I thought so too.

It's been awhile since all the group links were posted at the same time in one post, but it has been done before so I wasn't the first to think of it.

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!!!
