Hi folks,

I bought BIAB a couple of weeks ago, and upgraded to the full version with a few days. Had a first attempt at creating a track using it tonight - a basic blues in Bm, using BIAB drums, bass organ and blues harp, to which I added rhythm and lead guitar.

Link here:

Looking forward to getting to know the program, recording, and picking up tips from here!

Hey you had me at Blues Traveler.

I mean Blues Raveler!

Up until this moment I thought D minor was the saddest of all keys.

Now I might have to rethink that.

Great job and welcome to the forum!

I agree clever use of Wah Wah and also stereo. I thought the whole thing was clever. And I must say listening to a number of people on these forums there are many clever and talented people hereabouts.

Hey, thanks for the kind words!
My internet connection was a bit ropey when I posted, and didn't realise I'd posted the song twice (Blues in Bm thread), so just noticed this.
I think the program is great, and look forward to exploring its possibilities - great to have a forum to hear what others are doing too!

Nice work Dave, and welcome to the forums! There's some awesome playing in this one, and I love the general mood of it too. It's very "smoky" is how I'd describe it. It's almost mysterious as well.

Thanks so much for sharing - can't wait to hear what else you come up with using Band-in-a-Box smile

AMAZING PLAYING Dave!!! Welcome to the forum. I bought BIAB the same way. As soon as I had the basic one, I said "I need more of this!!". This is some GREAT blues. Come back soon. Take care. Greg

Lovely playing throughout - great tone and feeling (the blues harp is a long way back in the mix - perhaps could come up or go?).

Nice panning on the guitar.

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.
