Hello Funkifized, We would love to take a look at your song. If you can please send in a frozen SGU or MGU file to and let us know which version year of the program you're using as well as the build number (which you can find under Help | About Band-in-a-Box) this would be helpful. Thank you, Ember

Jump to new posts Xtra Styles Problem Solved by JohnJohnJohn @ 20 minutes 12 seconds ago

Several comments here recently about people buying the latest Xtra Styles but not having the required RealTracks to use them. Here is a solution. For every style, program a backup default RealTrack that is included in every BIAB since RTs were invented. So, if new Xtra Style "2021 Country Gold" requires a drum RT that was only included in Biab 2021 Ultraman upgrade, automatically select an older mostly compatible RT that the customer does have. Or, when the new Xtra Style is loaded

The style is the band. The tracks are the band members. If a style/band requires a track/drummer from 2021 and you don't have it then your style/band will be drumless!

Hi floyd jane, Your composition has not aged any more. The lyrics fit perfectly with the musical arrangement. It's very catchy. Janice's double voice is well positioned and enriches your composition. Your compositions are always so pleasant to listen to. Kindly regard Derochette alias JaniJackFlash

Then of course, there's the whole backward masking and how did they figure THAT out? The devil made them do it. The crazy thing is.... this is a fact... if you record that part of the song from their movie THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME.... and play it backwards.... yep... it's there in the live version too. And now you know.

Plogue has a pretty good User Guide for their Sforzando software. You can download it here: Storfanzo User Guide On the Settings tab of the Sforzando GUI, you can define the data paths on your system for both the location of a folder containing your sfz files, and another data path for the location of any data files that the ARIA Engine converts to sfz format (the folder auto-created by the program is named "ARIAconverted").

I'm bit late to comment, but got lost in illusion of timeline Mix of really many styles and lyrics travel through the history and the cameraman is witnessing it all happening. So many great lines, worth studying the deeper meanings, enjoyable playing with words "ignoring the law of rocks and scissors" Great intro and ending, really thoughtfully built. Hiphopping sounds classic. The instrumentation is excellent, truly creative use of RTs, the guitar solo is fantastic. I think this is

Blues1952, we can get behind this request if we understand it better. As above, an example of what you mean by searchable library could help. Also an example of the place you find track and style descriptions limited. Are you referring to the DOS standard of 8.3, or something/somewhere else?

Considering that I consider myself a "country guy"........ I don't fear exploring other styles. I quite often use rock styles in my country songs. I used LA HARD ROCK in several early on in my time with BB. With BB, there are a lot, and I mean a lot of really great sounding rock styles complete with the guitars. I did a song a while back that was called Under the Black.... a song about pirates and the series Black Sails that is on Starz TV.... (great series BTW) I used a rock st

Cathy, there's two issues being discussed in reference to the licensing. One is how to license a song that someone else owns the copyright on.... such as when you want to do a cover of a popular song. In this case, you contact the HARRY FOX AGENCY and pay them the license fee for the purpose you intend to use the song in. Prices vary so you should choose carefully to stay within the license. Second one.... and this is what I think you you meant when you said Quote:Dunno what it takes to li
