Hi,
We want to assemble a list of user-made BB tutorial videos. We'll put links to them on our site, on this page http://www.pgmusic.com/videos.user.htm

So please let us know of any tutorial "how-to" type videos on using Band-in-a-Box. Most of these would be on youtube. Please include a brief description of what the video is about, and of course a link to ir.

You don't need to be the creator of the video to tell us about it.

Note: This is only for VIDEO based tutorials.
We'll have a separate topic for other tutorials (text)

Please use the following format:

Topic: Using F5 (Bar Settings) to tell who to play what and when in BIAB
Author: Dan (aka Jazzmandan)
Description: Alway felt this was one of the top newbee questions, so I put together this video. A simple demo which shows how to use F5 (Bar Settings) to have different instruments step into different parts of the song. Example is done with Autumn Leaves having different RT soloists playing at different times (including the intro, choruses and specific bars) and leaving room for my vocals and solo to come in.

Peter, I am a singer. If I produce a video I will have to use a Popular Song by typing in the chords. I want to display the joy of singing with BIAB. I realize this may not be allowed due to copyright infringement. What is your take on this? Is this allowed or no? Same question for performing live Jazz tunes in small lounges. Would this be a major problem?

Hey Gorilla,
If you make a backing track of nothing but chords, then maybe put a BB melody (solo) in the middle, you're not duplicating the song. Many chord progressions are similar. So, should not be an infringement, since if you play it by itself, it doesn't sound like any song in particular. But if you want to sing in a lounge, music played there should be covered by the use fees, paid by the establishment, that are paid yearly to BMI and ASCAP. It's no different than if you were in a cover band working the venue. They almost never sound like the record. Kind of like a poor man's karoke, except it you want to validate yourself, you'll likely be playing your guitar and doing a vocal, or something similar. You're just having an electronic noise maker help you sing the song. The use fees should cover that, since for heaven's sake, you're not ripping off anybody. Cover bands do it, why not you. Except you're working your tail off creating some sounds to help you get through the song. This whole concept is a step down from being a DJ, but still allows you to sing and play. I didn't ask anybody about this, so if you're in doubt, ask other musicians who do something similar. There is at least 1 fantastic singer in my area who came all the way from Ireland to do exactly as I have described, and after several years, he's still playing the club he started at. He's not hurting anybody, not getting rich (well, I don't know that. Maybe the tips are good). Anyway, he's a pro, and well known here, and abroad. I know the club is paying use fees, as prescribed for any club. So, all should be well for you and me, as well. Hope this helps.
Griff

BIAB Chords Drive Keyboard
By Barley

Hi I uploaded 2 videos on youtube showing how to set up BIAB and the Tyros 4 keyboard, so that the chords from BIAB songs are detected by the Tyros and the Tyros provided any style from the keyboard and applied it to the songs. Two good tutorials.
Check out the two videos at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7vucwldHvU

These tutorials are also in Forum in "Tips and Tricks Section.

Hi Rocco,
Yes, excellent demo.

I'm a new BIAB user. Did you use the keyboard because you like the sounds better than
the ones that come with BIAB?

Thanks
Debb

Hi Debb,

The technique in my videos help to make playing a song easier for a non- professional like me. There are many good styles and v0ices on the Tyros 4, so that's part of the insentive, But the biggest advantage to the set up is that it allows "LIVE changes in styles voices and other sound features, like Multi Pads, on Tyros.

It adds a sort of professional sound to a "bad" keyboard player.

See My latest additon to the tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxozIi4YXsA

A new tutorial to compliment earlier tutorials on BIAB Chords Drives Keyboard.

This shows how to set-up Resistrations, and PAT (Performance Assistant Technology" set-up
so you can pre-program style and voice changes using BIAB Chord Drive,. It also shows how to take advantage of PAT on Yamaha Keyboards, which allows 'Poor' player to to hit any key on the keyboard and only sounds that are compatible with the chords from BIAB will be played. The normal - progressive scale is gone, and only chord compatible sounds are avalable.

Check it out at ------ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxozIi4YXsA

Thank you for making your video about using the audio chord wizard. Well worth watching. I most appreciated adding the drum and bass tracks to show how easy it is to match an existing track even if the track has wide variations in tempo. Couldn't believe how well they matched your guitar track.

By the way, your guitar track sounded O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G !!!

Thanks for the supportive direction, Mr. Gannon.
I see, a few of us are igniting or re-igniting
interest in video, lately.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Holiday Hours

Monday, October 14th is Canadian Thanksgiving!

Our Holiday schedule that day is:
Customer Service: 8:00AM to 4:00PM PDT
Technical Support: Closed

We will be back to our regular schedule Tuesday, October 15th.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
