#TipTuesday - the Melody/Soloist Sequencer in Band-in-a-Box for Windows

Ever notice that green 'SEQ' button in Band-in-a-Box? This little guy allows control over multi-channel MIDI information on the Melody or Soloist track!
(for example, you might want a single instrument out of a MIDI file you import into Band-in-a-Box, so the Melody Sequencer allows you to rechannel, or delete specific channels)

We've created a video based on this feature with the Melody track (but it works the same with the Soloist track!) which can be viewed here:
www.pgmusic.com/?vid=OejFpi4TjIQ.

Learn even more about this feature by viewing this document (taken from the Help Menu within the program).

#TipTuesday - How to See Band-in-a-Box 2016 Tips

If you've been using Band-in-a-Box for years, you may have turned off the "Tip of the Day" option... but did you know there's a great option within this feature to only show you tips for the new 2016 Version?

To set this up within Band-in-a-Box:
-Go to Help
-Select 'Tip of the Day'
-Click on 'Only Show Tips for Version 2016'

You can also choose to have these tips appear when you first open the program by clicking on 'Show Tips at Startup' within this window.

What a great way to get to know this new version! I just clicked through 5 of them:
-In the Audio Edit Window, vertical zooming can be done with the mouse by zooming over the decibel bar, or by holding down the CTRL key and zooming towards the mouse cursor.
-You can convert the Audio track from stereo to mono, or vice versa, with the Audio | Edit Audio | Convert Channels (mono/stereo) menu command.
-You can choose any color for each element on the Chord Sheet with the color palette in the Display Options dialog.
-Superscript shows the chord extensions with smaller raised font, making the root of the chord more distinguishable, and also helping maximize space on the Chord Sheet.
-The Chord Sheet is fully customizable! To customize, click on the Chord Sheet and select "Display Options" from the menu.

Customers LOVE the NEW RealTracks and Band-in-a-Box 2016 for Windows!

Here's just some of the great feedback we've received about Band-in-a-Box 2016 and the 201 New RealTracks:

I finished my new chart in a third of the time it usually takes. These new 2016 styles are just great!"..."I'm liking this upgrade more and more with every dip in... "..."What a remarkable product you have here! It's hard to imagine all of the functionality that exists within this product that can't be found anywhere else! "..."Twice as many real tracks as in any previous version! That alone would be worth the price of purchase (but there's more than that!)"..."Very nicely done!"..."RealTracks continue to amaze me!"..."Welcome to newbee Zane Carney with his tasty zany rhythms!"..."Love all the bass sounds as I am always looking for a good bass player, Alex, Freddie, Doug … If you can’t find something you love here you need a new woofer."..."Check out the new Rhythm tones from tone master Brent Mason - Fantastic sounds"..."Guitar Acoustic Fingerpicking… way to go Joe!"..."So much to love, so little time."..."My favorite are the new funk RealTracks, they sound just awesome. The new big band styles are also amazing!"..."Lots of REALLY good new stuff here."..."The Cello in Band-in-a-Box is so much better than what any sampler or virtual instrument can do and I really love that sound!"..."The absolutely brilliant Crooner RealTracks knocked me sideways!"..."The RealTracks this year are OUTSTANDING!"..."The horn section sounds fantastic!"..."Kudos to Peter Gannon for his continued commitment to keep expanding/improving Band-in-a-Box!"..."YES, the horn section is marvelous!"

Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac Review in Macworld! Rated 5/5 Mice!

Keith White just posted a review for Band-in-a-Box 2015 for Mac that he wrote for Macworld, which can be read here.

Rated 5/5 Mice!

His summary:
Pros:
-ability to produce professional backing tracks from a seemingly infinite array of styles in seconds
-all bases covered with outstanding features for music students, teachers and performers
-great support on the PG Music website with tutorials and sound samples
Cons:
-None – perhaps slightly daggy interface design features and feature overload might worry some folk a little at first

"the brilliant underlying technology, which allows me quickly to have professional musicians sitting by my side as I practise and perform. I also use BiaB to create royalty free background music for my documentaries and quite often just for plain having fun."
-Keith White, Macworld Australia

Wondering what that means? Check out our 49-PAK breakdown:

24 additional RealTracks
The 24 additional RealTracks include many very exciting styles. We have two country/folk resonator guitar RealTracks, beautiful "songwriter" fingerpicking guitars, hard-edged modern pop guitar, and more! There are also Motown and Rock 'n' Roll RealDrums as part of this collection.

11 New MIDI SuperTracks
We have new MIDI SuperTracks covering many different genres. There are "Bent-Note" classic country piano styles, Funk organ and electric piano, Tango piano, and exciting new Gypsy Jazz piano styles as well!
Because these are MIDI, you can pick whatever patches or synths you want to generate the sound, giving you complete control over the final product!

19 New Instrumental Studies
We introduced the idea of "Instrumental Studies" last year with guitar studies, and this year we've expanded the concept to include piano bass and sax. There are 19 studies that you can explore and learn on these instruments, in a variety of genres.

3 Artist Video Performance Tracks
"Artist Video Performance Tracks" are a brand new product for Band-in-a-Box! These tracks are video performances that play ALONG with Band-in-a-Box RealTracks. This first set contains 3 jazz performances by saxophone master Jack Stafford. With these performances, Band-in-a-Box provides the rhythm section, and you hear AND see Jack Stafford playing along to Band-in-a-Box, playing the standard "Indiana", as well as the common generic progression "rhythm changes" and a jazz blues in F. In addition to these performances, you also get separate videos of Jack talking about his own technique, as well as pointers for how music students can approach this type of playing.

These Add-ons are not included in any other package.
