Band-in-a-Box for Macintosh
Total noob here. I wrote a country tune that has fiddle parts in it. I was able to export the part as a MIDI track from Musescore and import it into BIAB. Can I assign a "real" violin to the MIDI track? That's all I want. No other instruments, no nothin'. Any guidance or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

https://soundcloud.com/torrey-bliss/road-weary-blues How about another song with "blues" in the title ? Please have mercy on me, just trying to fit in Probably not breaking any new ground here but just picked up a new Fender Telecaster recently and wanted to see if I could make it rock lol! On a more serious note, this one is inspired by the many people I see out on the road that long to be home. Thanks for taking time to give it a listen. BIAB Drums - Rock Sync Kick Me Vocals Ba

I'm still disassembling some of my older songs with Steinberg SpetraLayer 7 Pro and putting new BiaB tracks with some of the old ones to freshen up some old material...here's the latest attempt...Took the drums, bass and vocals off the old track and teamed them with BiaB acoustic guitar, resonator guitar and lead solo electric...trust me it's much improved...loving Biab and SpectraLayer as a team.

How we made a number 1 hit From Reba McEntire's assistant accidently overhearing this demo through a closed door to having top Nashville session musicians, including PG Music session player Jason Roller. This is an interesting and detailed journey through the writing, recording and production of a high quality 88 track demo that resulted in a number one hit song for the poster.

Sorry if this has already been discussed but I DID SEARCH for it and nothing came up. Is there a worth while package of the real book charts for BIAB MAC? I understand the REALBOOKSOFTWARE site is not recommended from what I read. Was just trying to NOT have to input each song I want by hand. Thanks for any info...have a great day!

Jump to new posts In my empty little head.... by eddie1261 @ 03/03/21 09:15 AM

I have this idea but I want to see who plays what here. I know we have a majority of guitar and piano players. Does anybody here play the flute? We have any fiddlers? I have a thing I think would be fun and I want to gather as many different 16 bar solos as I can find. I know I can get a half dozen guitar players, but I'd love to have as wide a variety of instruments as possible. I want to put a groove down and let people have at it, 16 bars at a time, until I run out of people! So who plays

2021 RealBand. No file names listed in Select RealBand DLL or EXE dialog window. The bottom of RealBand Mixer has a collapsible window that has two boxes to select and run RealBand EXE programs or DLL applications. Two examples given include the GS Settings dialog box and the built-in tuner. The issue is the box is not populated with any file names.

Jump to new posts RB 2021 limits the use of patch list files....... by MountainSide @ 02/28/21 11:52 AM

Realband limits the conversion of .INI/ .INS and PAT file size to 2000 lines of patches per synth under its "Convert patch list from BIAB or Cakewalk" Many modern synths have over well 2000 patches and performances. Because of this limitation, I as well as other users are forced to abandon RealBand and use Cakewalk, Reaper or other DAW's to get around this limitation. Strangely, this is not the case with BIAB which can easily handle these large patch list with no limitation that I'v

Jump to new posts Imagine (cover) by ChicagoBob @ 02/28/21 08:01 AM

Imagine I have a sync project that I am working on that they want a Beatles cover with the melody close to the original so it is recognizable but they want some creativity. I thought I would give BIAB a shot at helping with the creativity. I played the 4 bar standard Imagine into so everyone knows what the song is but after that I embelished the cords a little bit and then let BIAB do its own thing. I added the piano melody just to give an idea of what it will sound like. The piano melody w
