Hi Tommy,

Great track! I have a few questions about it. Are these all real tracks or is it a mix of RTs and players? Also, the vocals on beginning are awesome. Are these loops? I would like to get hold of that collection. I need to put in to my wish list for BIAB scat vocal tracks for RTs.
Which host and mastering plugins do you use. I wish I could get my recordings to sound that clear.
Anyway, I enjoyed it. Reminds me of the days when we would jam together for hours off a cool chord progression and improve our improvisational skills. I miss those days!
Thanks for posting.

Hey Tommy,

Nice work here, cuz! I was going to ask you if this was all RT's, but RodM beat me to it.

I hope your sax player friend buys this one!

Thanks Guys
*_JAZFUNK Real Style , 1442 Sax,Alto . I used Logic Studio Pro 9 to mix and master and the vocals and percussion are loops that came with it. It was a girls voice ,but it was pitch shifted to be in tune with the song. I used factory presets for plugins because I know very little of proper mastering techniques . Logic has a preset for just about any instrument and any mastering situation . The only plugins were a suite for a male vocal ,Sax delay and wide pop mastering ,it seems like real tracks need very little done to them to sound good . I used dithering when it was bounced to a final cut ,but I don't know why it was just already checked as an option. The turn around was a chord substitution that Biab suggested when I couldn't figure how to tie the end to the beginning (love that feature).

Thank You John ! It was fun to click play ! Other than throw a few chords in and watch the fun , I had little to do with it. This may be the most perfect software ever invented . It sure has my vote for US President !

Cool! Very clean, funky sound.
I like the groove too.
My only nit-pick would be to have a simple(r) "hook; to define the song.
A sax player is going to look for that. (IMHO)

What button do you click for real track hooks ? On this song the Sax player will have to write his own, until I find that button. I only add the Sax at all so people won't be able to steal the track Mick . Another Sax player that heard the song was put off by Biabs sax playing , software envy ? But your suggestion is very right on and will make a great wish list item ! Thanks Mick for that Idea !

Tommy - I've never been a jammer - except maybe with my harp on blues numbers. But I liked this for the reasons others mentioned - clean, groove +1.
Here's an idea if you're looking for a hook and don't play - use the BIAB MIDI melodists and soloists feature
- you can define your bars and keep rolling those notes until you get something you like, which a real saxophonist could play - it's a great feature with more flexibility than using RTs . . . . .at least to help you create the hook riff, or whatever you define as a "hook".

Your saxophonist will probably have his own idea once he hears the tune.

Good one - cheers, Ian

Hi Tommy,

You've certainly set the bar way up there in the blue with this one! It's absolutely brilliant! I'm in awe of your musicianship.

All the best,

Saw your site. Nice job, Mick! Is that ALL from BIAB or are there
live instruments interwoven? (Has to be live sax ... computers can't
be that good ... YET).

Ha Debb, all the Real Tracks are from the Greatest Software ever made! Some vocal and percussion loops added, but the Sax is all PG! Biab even chose the turn around!

What can I say, except that I have it playing and I'm jamming to it.
I need something to sell so I can get BIAB with the RealTracks this year.
Great stuff.

Thanks Wayne, I love Real Tracks and was shocked when PG gave me their latest stuff last December. Even if I can never afford to purchase another update, what they gave me should last me a lifetime. Thanks Wayne for listening!

Welcome to the team David!

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!

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)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
