Very nice, the piano just sounds so "live" - nice parts, nice mix. It gave me a flashback to a flashback scene in a Woody Allen movie - maybe the one where he lived as a child under a roller coaster in Coney Island. I forget the title and for once I will accept that rather than outsource my brain to Google.

Thanks for sharing,
Bruce

Tano,

Glad the brushes were OK, concerned they were too heavy.
FWIW, the style itself setups up the 3 brushes.
Almost changed it, for thought was too heavy.

Thanks.

Bruce,

Thank you for nice compliments. It just blows me away, the quality
sounds we can get from the RT's. "Annie Hall" 1977 was one.
Left MY piece of brain with Google.

Glad you enjoyed!

Sounds great, but would change it to put the trumpet front and center, rather than panned left.

John,

Point well taken, Had accidentally left default setting as it was.
Am checking that now prior to BIAB rendering.
Would accent it better.

Thanks for compliment and comment, learning never stops until last breath.
With bit of luck, maybe even past that.

Nice use of BIAB. I wish it had some of those megaphone vocals that this style music had sometimes.

Good one.

This is the kind of swing music that makes my 90 year-old father sit up, pay attention, and tap his foot. Also, its brevity leaves me wanting more.

By the way, what is "magic F5"?

jptjpt, thanks and also my vocals would probably shatter the megaphone.

bluage.

Start up your BIAB, then select any bar, Press F5.
There is a myriad of changes you can make at the bar level.

too many to detail, but it is a "Magic" key.

My father would have been 92 this year, but RIP 1992.
Glad your Dad liked it. My dad was a honky-tonk, bluegrass, dixieland
type harmonica and keyboard player.

Thanks for your Dad's compliments.

#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!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:

RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

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!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

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)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
