He tenido interés en usar una guitarra con interface midi en Band in a Box y he notado que nuestro moderador Carlos Arellano es artista Realtrack y

tiene excelentes estilos propios que aparecen en la lista de estilos del programa. Me gustaría saber que sistema uso para grabarlos, que guitarra,

interface etc. y si es posible sacar provecho a la guitarra MIDI en Band in a Box. Que me recomendaría al respecto. Gracias y saludos.

Gracias Bong0age,

Para la grabación de mis RealTracks he usado una guitarra Godín xtSA provista de un puente que es al mismo tiempo una pastilla acústica piezo electrica y salida hexafónica compatible con el standard Roland para convertidores MIDI de guitarra, en este caso use un convertidor Roland GI-20 GK-MIDI INTERFACE. El MIDI me permitió realizar la grabación simultánea de las notas para crear el RealChart de cada parte de la guitarra en los RealTracks. Aqui te coloco dos videos donde utilizo la Godin y mi Epiphone Joe Pass con una pastilla Roland GK-3 MIDI y el sistema MIDI Roland:

En los estilos use diferentes tipos de timbre, acústico para el JazzFunkBreezy a 75 bpm y el estilo de SambaFusionCarlos a 190 bpm y eléctrico overdrive para el estilo JazzFunkGroovin 100 Bpm y double time.

Cada grabación de RealTracks es todo una experiencia tanto musical como tecnológica y un reto al profesionalismo. ¡Es un trabajo que he disfrutado muchísimo al hacerlo cada vez!

Por otro lado Band in a Box posee funciones y características especialmente concebidas para su uso con guitarra MIDI, si abres la ventana GUITARRA encontrarás funciones para grabar polifonicamente la señal MIDI proveniente del convertidor MIDI que a su vez la recibe de la guitarra misma, de esta forma se podrá, entre otras configuraciones, asignar un canal MIDI a cada cuerda de la guitarra, lo cual permitirá además de asignarle sonidos diferentes en un sintetizador, la elaboración de tablaturas especificando cada cuerda y cada posición y nota en la pantalla y diagrama de tablatura. ¡Band-in-a-Box abre un mundo de posibilidades a los guitarristas por medio de ello!

Cualquier duda adicional al respecto de este apasionante tema de la guitarra MIDI, estoy a tu disposición. Espero te sea de utilidad.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!


#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".


Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
