when creating my UserTrack should I simply play a few bars of every chord I might use or should I instead play every chord progression I might use?

put another way, do UserTracks get sliced up just by chord changes? or do they slice in groups of chords based on what I am using in my new song?

as an example let's say I create a UserTrack with a bar of G, a bar of C and a bar of D. will I get better results if I instead add the following,

1 bar of G followed by 1 bar of C
1 bar of G followed by 1 bar of D
1 bar of C followed by 1 bar of D
1 bar of C followed by 1 bar of G
1 bar of D followed by 1 bar of C
1 bar of D followed by 1 bar of G

Yes John,
You will get better results as you describe, by putting in typical progressions.


Have Fun!

So, does that mean that...

3 beats of G followed by 1 beat of C
3 beats of of G followed by 1 beat of D
and so on..

1 beat of C followed by 3 beats of D
1 beat of C followed by 3 beats of G
and so on..

2 beats of D followed by 2 beats of C
2 beats of D followed by 1 beats of G
and so on..

... is necessary for good results?

As in, if I want 1 beat of C followed by 3 beats of D, I will have had to recorded that exact progression? If I've just recorded 1 Bar of C followed by 1 Bar of D, what happens then?

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
