Today is International Tuba Day!

Add some Tuba accompaniment to your song in honor of International Tuba Day!

Search for "Tuba" within the RealTracks picker window of Band-in-a-Box and you'll see that we offer 3 RealTracks Sets with Tuba:

RealTracks Set 143: Dixieland - Fast Rhythm Section (Artist: Brad Muirhead)
RealTracks Set 162: Dixieland - Medium Rhythm Section (Artist: Brad Muirhead)
RealTracks Set 248: Oberkrainer! Folk Music From the Alps (Artist: Philip Santner) these show up when you search for "Tuba" within the RealTracks picker, however they are Bariton Horn

Happy International Tuba Day!

Tubas were used to prepare the troops for Cinco de Mayo. The sound got everyone riled up enough that they could still fight in the heat.

Apparently Cowbell's are awesome enough that there is more than 1 day to nationally appreciate them!

Although not an official list, my internet search pulled up:
April 5: National Cowbell Day
October 7: National More Cowbell Day

...now we know. smile

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
