Band-in-a-Box for Macintosh
Well, hopefully, I'm wrong. I spent a lot of money on my Macbook Pro. Apple is a much, much larger more diverse company now than when they first switched to Intel. Maybe they can make it all work, maybe they can get the software vendors to rewrite all their code. Maybe......I hope you are right and I'm wrong.

Oh, I thought it was Baker Street. Glad it wasn't a reference to that album though. differing interpretations for different ears & tastes I suppose - not much of an SD fan knowing only a couple of songs - though the lyric snippets do give it away after a while - even to a Philistine like myself. Smooth, richly arranged and mellowly sung - that'd be fitting as a tribute.
I really liked all of these details! I also think that online marketing is very popular but most of the business owners considered SMS marketing as old fashioned. But if you truly want to grow yourself then you will have to use both these techniques because not everyone is using internet even in the modern scenario. I am already using text messaging service for business and getting very good results.

Heavy drums and organ - very 70's. I'm with Deryk - the guitar arpeggios hint at Pink Floyd, and the guitar solo points in that direction as well. Cool listen - I envy both your skill and productivity!

Like John, I read the title and thought you were referring to two Steely Dan session horn players. But on re-reading I see you're referring to Walter Becker (RIP) and Donald Fagan. Especially since you reference Becker by name at the start of the song. Really nice work - building a song from bits of lyrics, and a cohesive arrangement from bits and pieces. Great singing, excellent mix. No doubt a few Mu chords as well. The end result is a song that stands by itself without knowing the ref

What a great song. Loved the lyrics and clearly the Steely Dan influence/homage. I'm guessing Michael Leonhart as the alive trumpet player.

Dear forum friends, this is a tribute song (seems like I've been doing a lot of them lately) to 2 of what I consider an elite group of a dozen or two true geniuses of modern pop/rock music. One is still with us. The other tragically has passed. I tried to honor their musical vibe and their rather unique style of writing lyrics. I would love to hear what you think. Been loving what I've been hearing here on the forum. Take care all. Greg

I'm looking forward to reading updates and seeing photos! I've heard summer NAMM seems to have a little more laid back and relaxed atmosphere than the winter session. Nashville is a tourist mecca with lots to see and do so hopefully you'll have an opportunity to see the sights a little bit. Just be careful as the heat is going to be dangerous the next couple of days!

I like it - snake oil with a bit of King of the World (Steely Dan) vibe. Great label graphic! But will it make me play better guitar? Fun listen, thanks for posting!

Cool. I’ll try it. Thank you! When the number of forums proliferated, it became a challenge.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!


#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".


Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
