Hi All

I've been away for a while. I play in a couple of bands now - I am always rehearsing for something or running to a gig so I haven't been able to touch BIAB for about a year. But I finally have some down time with the holidays so I got the 2013 upgrade and laid down some BIAB drums, bass and synth pad tracks for an instrumental idea I have had in my head for while. This is just a scratchpad of the idea. We may try it with the band and maybe record it at some point.

Hope you all like it.


Standing in the Storm


Cheers

Great. I'm flabbergasted.
You're a real good soloist.
Like it.

your keyboard sounds more like a guitar than most guitars!
I bet your band plays at least one song by TOTO... you have their sound nailed.

Loved the camera angle so I could watch (and envy) your technique. I was about 60% that good in my prime, and that prime was about 15 years ago so now it's a WHOLE different story.

The presence of the 8 pads on your top keyboard makes me think that is a controller and you were playing a sample from somewhere other than an internal patch. What was that authentic guitar sound???

Hi All

Thanks for the kind words.

You are correct - the top keyboard is an m-audio axiom midi controller. The electric guitar sound is coming from my laptop. It is RealLPC 3.0 from MusicLab running thru Guitar Rig 5 as the amp effect.

Jeff, your guitar playing sounds just like the real thing, wow. I'll have to take up knitting or something if keyboarders are taking over from guitarists. Nice.

Great sound and great chops man!

Are you keyboardists trying to put us guitarists out of business? That was one of the best guitar emulations that I have ever heard!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
