Outstanding work on guitar. If I had my choice to play any instrument any way, I'd be doing the electric guitar like that. Nice work.

Here's a great tip I just found. Put a gallon of dishwashing soap and a gallon of bleach in your washing machine and run it for 10 minutes. It will disinfect your whole house...

Well written song. I don't know all the references but I'll be looking some up. I love the chorus melody, especially the first line about the Saints.

This is a magnificent composition and production. I'd say this is my favorite that you've posted. The chorus really sets its hooks in you. As others have said, this is definitely hit material. Stay in, stay safe, and stay off the beaches.

Jump to new posts Re: Quality Midi Sounds by goofeyfoot @ Today at 09:40 AM

That is so interesting. On this end, I just bought all the parts for a new AMD 3900 computer. My existing computer was getting towards the end of it’s life anyway. I think I built about 15 years ago. So it doesn’t owe me anything. Ultimately I think I’ll still use VST‘s for the moment. However I’m really curious about the hardware items. And being something of a hoarder, I expect I’ll have all of the above at some point! Thanks for the insight. I’m learning something every day. T

Jump to new posts Re: 12 Key transpose after each chorus? by Pete_V @ Today at 09:31 AM

Hi I highlighted this Mac/Windows functionality gap back in 2015. I use BIAB primarily for practice and would find the transpose function extremely useful. I've upgraded on an annual basis since then hoping that my loyalty and investment in the Mac version would be reciprocated through some alignment between Windows and Mac in this area, however so far no indication that this will ever be implemented.

Yep, me too. When my 3rd drive crashed there was no opportunity to deactivate it so the new installation can't ge activated as it is 'seen' as No4. Support aware - waiting for an answer. Ian

I think that it is way to large on my desktop monitor. Maybe it can be made so it can be closed via a minus sign.
all i know is that in recording a click track it was impossible when the prerecorded audio slowed down to 'click' the last two bars. when i didn't the track demanded to be consolidated before it would align and then lost bout the last 20 bars no idea why

Must get all the support possible, +1 That being said, it is still one hell of a job, but, being able, even just to tweak styles, is soooo important. Didn’t even know it was not possible for the Mac users, a shame, really.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
