if zoos had an exhibit labeled "North American musician in its natural habitat" the cage might look something like this picture

Good idea, for insurance purposes. Now you got a picture of all your boards if anything ever happens! I need to do that one day. Should have done it when I had everything pulled out for new carpet .. but I didn't.

hey good idea..
I think I'll make a photo shop collage of multiple expensive instruments I don't own, and....


(given the ability to do that, are photos still considered proof of anything to an insurance company?)

In my case they could serve as a reminder, and *some* proof is better than nothing. A few years ago I walked around the house with a video camera to log our belongings and stored it online. That way we can prove we had at least a hundred bucks worth of stuff.. but the keyboards in storage weren't logged, just the cases.

Would also help in case of theft to show it indeed was your stuff they found in the raid.

Actually every piece of gear I own is in a spreadsheet with the serial number, a photo of the item, a close up of the serial number, cost new, amount paid, and replacement estimate. All 8 keyboards, all 3 controllers, 8 guitars, 3 saxes, a flute, Line 6 amp, rack gear....... that spreadsheet is stored in 7 places, including a flash drive I keep in my pocket.

AND my guitars all have a special mark somewhere on them. Each guitar has it in a different place and each mark is different.

Remember, just because they say you are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't really after you.

Yup, as a fire investigator the most fun was often with the 'statement' of claim.

Funny how stuff previously reported stolen and denied, gets added again. The hard part is knowing, but being unable to make the arrest.

Then once the adjuster and the investigator get the person to diagram what was where. Then back to the scene with a grid search and inventory. It's pretty hard to destroy anything all the way, at least as pertains to getting serial numbers, etc.

The I had 3 computers, 4 flat screens, and other stuff moments. Then once you can prove it is not there, the fraud charge follows. Maybe not arson, might be too circumstantial.

I've seen almost every version of the possible scams, and when the first red flag goes up the insurance company takes their sweet time.

Just remember, your favorite 10 year old keyboard is probably insured for nothing.

And to add insult to injury so to speak, unless you have a rider on your gear, they are going to say, ok, we can pay for one, but no way you are covered due to the exclusion clause that says they pay for replacement of normal family equipment. This may exclude your Sony a77 camera (mine's on order), and your 5,000.00 keyboard. I have a rider for my Bose gear, keyboards, camera, and I think it was 8.60 per month more. That's only 3 beers eh?

Once the flattened house has the roof removed, the attic insulation removed, and the ceiling removed, the stuff that was in rooms away from the actual starting point may have survived to a degree. The plastic melts, but the thing is still available for tests. So that camera will be cleaned, examined, catalogued, and photographed in situ, when it hits the bench, and as it's disassembled.

In the "Irony can be so ironic" category, here we are having fun on a post, and the product that supports the forums is the main reason I rarely actually play anymore. I don't have to. Those tracks I post the links to.... 98% Real Band. The occasional very specific string or Hammond part I add, but 98% of it is Real Band.

I also have pictures and serial numbers of all my equipment, as well of its estimated retail value. One copy is in my safe and the other copy is on file with my insurance company. If you have your equipment insured be sure to have a copy of your pictures and data on file with them.

Thank God I'm an acoustic guitar player with no PA anymore!
One guitar fits all most of the time.

Great shot, Eddie - good album cover.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
