May 30, 2014 User Showcase Song - Seventh Skin

I have remixed and given "February Snow" it's original title back - "Seventh Skin".

I rerecorded the vocal with my new toy, a Sure SM7b. I love this mic!!!

I added drums, changed the ending, and remixed the whole thing.

If you have heard it already and care to take a second listen comments are welcome.

If you have not heard it I hope you like it.

May 29, 2014 Band-in-a-Box - Import Midi and Wav tracks into a BIAB song

Is there anyone who can tell me how to import a midi file or a wave file as an additional track (maybe into melody or soloist or I don't know where) into an existing BIAB song.
What I find in the menu is the option to open a midi file but it creates a new song.
I just want to add an instrument that I've got recorded as midi or a vocal recorded as wave to a song that I've got opened in BIAB.

May 28, 2014 Band-in-a-Box - Using BIAB Live With My New Toy

I've recently purchased a Digitech JamMan XT Solo looper pedal, and plan to use it at my next gig on Sunday to play my BIAB backing tracks. Using the JamManager software that is included, I was able to copy all my recorded BIAB tracks (Wav files) onto the pedal. Using a FS3X footwitch I'm able to scroll through the songs quite quickly. I'm excited about using it because I'm now completely hands free at my gigs, plus I've eliminated a mike stand rig with a tray where I used to place my CD player. I like the fact that after every song I'm no longer having to focus on pushing bottoms on a CD player. I'd be interested in anyone else who may have tried this approach?

May 21, 2014 Woodshedding - Using BIAB to learn to play some jazz blues guitar

I've been using BIAB to help learn to play some jazz blues guitar using a book called "Jazzin' The Blues". The book lessons include a rhythm part and a single 12 bar lead part. I've put them together in a video, using BIAB to make the drum and bass part. These have been well-recieved on the Blues You Can Use forum, and I think I've sold a couple of people on Band In A Box. Thought I'd post here for anyone looking for ways to use BIAB to learn something new musically. Any comments or suggestions appreciated.

May 15, 2014 User Showcase Song - Real Country

Just for fun... and to go along with the discussion that has been going on..

As has been mentioned, the current crop of songs by the guys in Country music all talk about the same things...
My truck..hey, girl..drinking beer...going down to the river...drinking beer...she loves my tractor...drinking beer...let's do it in my truck...
The girls ALL wear "painted on jeans".
Everyone's waiting for quitting time - so they can drink some beer...(or moonshine)

Michael LeBlanc had posted a lyric pointing out that those songs don't really reflect real life in the country.
Mike has a knack for original ideas and raw honesty in his lyrics...
I asked him if I could re-work it some and put it to music.
He graciously agreed... so after a re-write and re-title, we have...

May 14, 2014 Band-in-a-Box for Windows - A new melody and lyrics

Hi, glad to be back from BiaB hiatus. I got side tracked and lost my momentum with my projects for a while. But I am glad I finally started working on it again. I already found some great chord progressions and styles to put together. And wow the tracks sound very good even without doing anything to them. They sound very good to me. I am astonished really at what BiaB can do for me...

May 13, 2014 User Showcase Song - Be My Medicine Man (Tom Adams Collab)

I recently wrote a lyric built roughly around the age old theme of lost love with a twist as the lady is influenced by Native American spirituality. Janice and I wanted the arrangement to reflect the NA feeling but I was stuck trying to develop it. I had first thought about a blues feel (home turf) but I contacted Tom to see what he thought about suggesting an arrangement (of course I was hoping he might be interested in playing guitar on it).

May 09, 2014 Layering files onto Real Tracks

I am new to Real Tracks and I sure like them, but I would like to add to them. In particular, strings or the like. My question is: what is the best way to facilitate this? I know I can dump these audio files into Cubase and then put a midi track onto this. I really haven't done this, but I think I am technically adept enough to pull that off. What I am hoping is that there is a way to add strings to the real track ensembles that have been programmed already within BIAB. This would be, I presume, an easier way to do this thing quickly. Is this doable?

May 02, 2014 People LOVE Band-in-a-Box!

Here's what they're saying:
"I just wanted to leave a quick note to tell you guys how awesome the new GUI, the user interface, is in the new 2014 BIAB! Wow. Everything is so much easier now. If this was the only update in BIAB 2014, it would still be worth it. Thanks!!"..."Your program is more than an accompanying program , it is a musical education."..."As usual you have surpassed the quality of this program. Keep up the good work"..."Thank you for great service!"..."This software is awesome! It really helps me improve my musical abilities. I love Band-in-a-Box."..."Top of the line in it's class ,there is nothing that comes close to it for pure musicale genius.Each upgrade is like getting a new car;exciting and so full of usefull and fun additions . Thanks PG Music."..."I used to split the gig money 5 ways. Now BIAB is my band, and I get to keep ALL the money! Using the cash I would have paid the band, BIAB paid for itself in only one gig! Not to mention that BIAB never makes mistakes, never plays out of tune, never misses band practice, and never quits the band!"..."Discovered BIAB only two years ago and it has transformed my song writing hobby. Instead of patchy guitar accompaniments to vocals, it is great to have a full band at my beck and call. And a rich source of inspiration for melodies. BIAB is amazing, and worth every modest dollar you ask for it!"..."Having used BIAB for over 10 years I have to say how helpful it has proved when teaching new tunes ... the ability to create a simple (or complex!) accompanyment is powerful; the ability to then tweak these to suit differnt performers (especially younger children) is invaluable."..."The BIAB really is a revolution... each issue is even better!"..."The product is great for producing backing tracks. It's also a great practice tool, allowing you to mute tracks and play along. Customer service is second to none, too!"..."If BandInABox was made by Apple or the companies that make Reason, Cubase, etc., they would charge $2,000 just for the basic program alone. It's so advanced it belongs in the Smithsonian -- seriously. It's easily the best musical investment I've ever made. Thanks for making this great software."..."Compared to all the other music creation software I've tried, BIAB is so innovative it should be called BAND OUTSIDE THE BOX! Whether you want to learn, practice, perform, compose or record there's LOTS here for you. Its easily the most fun-to-use software I have ever used!!"..."I am retired and have been playing the piano on and off all my life, strictly for my own amusement. I discovered BIAB about 13 years ago and it immediately gave me a new interest in playing. I am only surprised you don't hear of more solitary "home players" like me who have discovered BIAB."..."BIAB helped me learn the Guitar along with how to write your own songs. It is a truly remarkable program and well worth trying out."..."Thanks SO much. I really need practice and Biab helps me a lot. You and your team are doing a great service."..."You have produced a fine and inspirational music application which is a joy to use. Thank you all!"..."Everyone who likes music should get this program"..."I have never come across a product or service better than I have received from your company. PGMUSIC is simply the best."..."Can't believe I didn't discover this sooner. Two full songs arranged and recorded, from scratch, in a weekend. You guys just hit my "I love" list, right up there with Beer, Girls and Rock-and-Roll! Nice!"

May 01, 2014 Video - Making Notation for Guitar in Band-in-a-Box

If you play guitar you may prefer writing a melody using the fretboard, without having to think about notation. Our newest support video shows how to do that within Band-in-a-Box, and also shows how to write notation and have Band-in-a-Box make it work with the fretboard.

May 01, 2014 User Showcase - New Album: Something Borrowed, Something Blue

My new album was released today--Something Borrowed, Something Blue. There are ten songs, nine of which I wrote. Every track was arranged in BIAB, using the 2013 Mac version. I used RealTracks for bass, piano, and organ parts as well as RealDrums. On the song Sweet Marianne, I used a Dixieland RealStyle for the entire instrumental backing track: tuba, guitar, banjo, piano, and drums. For the rest of the songs I played acoustic and resonator guitars, and resonator mandolin. Dan Lippert played harmonica on all ten songs.
