Working on some songs, all Real Tracks, vocals are there just for perspective. I am working on interfacing vocals in Mixcraft 6, a lot of tweaking etc. to come, don't be to judgmental. Thanks

I listened to stret walker it has a lot of potential. My honest opinion is that the tempo is to high re record that with a lower tempo.. I say this because I too fell into that same type of thing and a good friend told me to slow it down some and I have gotten better results because of it

I didn't have time to listen to the others but I will

start at 80 and go up by 5 till you get just the right tempo

You'll probably end up at 110 or 120 but you never know... I have had some songs end up as low as 70 give it a try you can always fall back to what you have already recorded if it doesn't sound right

Thanks for the good reviews, I am still working on redoing the vocals with a Rode mic, these songs were done with a Shure beta 58A. The Rode mic is very sensitive even to movement of my feet on the floor, any comments on how to reduce the sensitivity?

good stuff.

Steet walker: man that melody is dead on to another song that was popular.... I can't recall the name... the story is similar to Deep Purple's Strange Kind of Woman.

Pretty Girl: I like this one.... of course I'm more of a country musician anyway. Nice solo guitar real track. It's believable.

Never let you go: Again, country... one thing I noticed... on this one. Shorten the intro. No intro should exceed 15 seconds max and this one goes past 30 seconds. The Eagles can get away with long intro's (mostly live in concert) but they have the star power to do it.

that's as far as I went.... 3 songs that have good potential.

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!

#FeatureFriday

#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".

#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.
