Here is my latest song with Band in a Box: Same Old Road

I was then able to re-record the Audio track without having to overdub the Audio.

Lyrics

Here again down this old road
Longing for you all the time
Seems like I have been here before
Your promises dashed on the shore

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that would be divine

Yeah baby I'm walking down the same old road
Just thinking of you once again

Instrumental

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that it would be divine

How we danced on that balmy night
Well we danced till the morning light
We held each other so very tight
Baby yeah it felt alright

Fine work here! Very smooth flow, So if I understand correctly all of this was recorded, without leaving biab?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi PgFantastic,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes it was all recorded in BIAB using the Soloist spare track as the main vocal (by changing the Audio Tracks name to Same Old Road Soloist).
Then recording the backing in the Audio Track and adding Harmonies One up.

This saved me from any mistakes (although not all blush) as I could just re-record again keeping the good recording - does that make sense? - what I mean is that if the Audio on the Soloist track is good then I can leave that one alone and record the backing again. Phew...

George,
your voice always reminds me of Roy Orbison. I'd love to hear your version of PRETTY WOMAN

Hey George,

Very impressive doing this all in BIAB.

I like the groove and the Roy O. vibe too.

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

#WisdomWednesday

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.
