Loaded up one of the demo songs. Ugh, what a mess of a GUI! I’ve been using Tracktion for so long that just about any other DAW interface looks cluttered. Tracktion, with its signal flow centric, ‘modeless’ UI just matches my brain wiring. But I will give Cakewalk another go just to get access to the notation and tablature functions, if it doesn’t first drive me nuts

Larry,

I tried to do an uninstall for Bandlab assistant in order to try and reinstall and it kept popping up. I did a manual easter egg hunt search to root it out and found at least 8 other places where executables and folders were stored, in numerous folders in app data, local, roaming and local low too I believe. Also in program files and another location I am forgetting off the top of my head.

Is it necessary to have a Bandlab assistant folder in every directory in your computer???

Am I missing something here??

I think they are all gone now.

I will wait a few months on this one now.

Thx

thanks exactly what Sonar has been doing since the version that came out to work with Win Vista (so about sonar version 6?) it's a sloppy mess - no need for it.

But, to be fair, given the quick turn for Band Labs acquiring CW to this "release" I didn't expect them to waste time on cleaning up install code or doing anything major or radical.

But the fact that brought some of the same people over that caused this mess in first place - means it will never get better and probably only worse. Yes, this has (currently) virtually no "use" impact, and for 99.% of users this is "under the hood" stuff they don't care about

Larry,

Yes but...

Unless you open task manager and see 20 instances of power shell running using up more memory than a small rodent should be consuming.

Crazy man.

I just downloaded and installed the free Sonar, but have no idea how to use it. Any good tutorials for beginners around?

Thanks

Mike, Groove3 has a tutorial series of 49 videos +++ HERE +++ that takes 5 hours and 50 minutes to view.

You can pay for the ALL ACCESS pass or purchase the series. I prefer to purchase so I can download and have as a resource forever. Presently the series cost is $28 US. The series was created in 2015 so some newer features are not covered. A description is quoted below.

Quote:
SONAR guru Eli Krantzberg takes you from beginning to end, showing how to unleash the power of this fully featured, cutting edge DAW.

This definitive series begins with the Important Fundamentals like Installation, Starting a Project, Window Overviews, Controlling Playback and more, Eli then moves onto Recording Audio and MIDI, Quantizing, Punching-In, and Looping. Next, Eli goes deep into Arrangement and Clip Editing, covering topics such as Track Management, Clips, Markers, Applying Fades and more.

Mixing is up next, and Eli demonstrates How to Configure the Console View, SONAR's Signal Flow, Busses, and Sends, How To Use Real-Time Effects, EQ, Compression, Automation, Exporting and much, much more!


I should note that Groove3 also has a great video tutorial series for Band-in-a-Box. You can find out more about that +++ HERE +++

The Cakewalk University is still up https://www.cakewalk.com/CakeTV/SONAR-University also there is a heap of stuff on YouTube (start here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qyqNJhSUGfI ) just look for what you want. The Cakewalk University has several levels and is often based on older versions but you'll get the idea. The best if you can get a copy to read is one of the Sonar Power books by Scott R Garrigus also look him up on the WEB he has more on Sonar. Another really good book (if you can get it) is the Simon Cann book Cakewalk Synthesizers From Presets to Power User this really shows how to get the most out various Synth plugins it is very useful beyond Sonar even helpful for BIAB. Simon Cann is worth looking up on the WEB as he also has much more on sound creation.


Hope it helps

Tony

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
