Hy everyone, this is just a quick "demo" I've made from a realdrum I've just finished. I've made a lot of them for my own use, but this is the first time I've made a realdrum completely from scratch, with lots of different fills and four different variations. It takes time, but the result is very satisfying to me. Here it is, just a minor blues where all instruments (except, of course, the drums) come from the new and great JAZFNKC style.

Here's another example, this time with all MIDI instruments. Composition, melody and soloist come from BIAB (I used the ABRA style)

Wow! Both are quite excellent (demo #1really rocks, though). So is this a realdrum thing created by you? Way cool if it is (still way cool if it isn't).

If you make your realdrum file available to the world, I'll find a way to use it.

Hi Cerio

What do you mean when you say you "made a realdrum completely from scratch" ?
I'm intrigued.

Kemmrich, if you want, just send me a PM (or even better, an email), and I will send you the files.

I've made several "custom" realdrums for my own use, just using loops or even parts of commercial songs where drums were isolated. This is easy, but you don't have any control over the grooves or sound, and it's nearly impossible making different variants, fills, etc. Programming the drums from scratch is another completely different story, you can do exactly what you want to do, but trying to emulate the subtle nuances that makes a drummer's performance "alive" is a quite time consuming process. As a bassist, I learn (and enjoy) a lot programming "live" drums, and making "blind tests" of these tracks with fellow musicians.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

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.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#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!
