Have not been gigging in over a year - too much day job. But when I do find the time, my rig will look something like this. Few know that the VLT is a full featured audio interface which allows routing mic and guitar in and 1/4 inch to the PA.

Dan,

Looks great! The only thing I'd add is the lyrics on that screen.

Break a Leg Dan!

PS: Is that an Ipad you have BIAB running on?

Later,

Hey Dan,

would you be willing to demo that on the next forum skype session? I'd like to see and hear what it can do! Based on the photo, it looks very interesting!

tentative time and date for the next multi-user forum video skype session is the 3rd Sunday in February, which I believe is the 16th. Time would be 7 pm (eastern time)


The reason for waiting until the 16th is that Lloyd is on a cruise, and that's the first weekend after he gets back.

Floyd is going to be so fat when he returns he won't be able to reach his keyboard! Cruises do that to people you know.

Hi Pat, Do you know if it's possible to record a Skype session? It would be great for those of us who are unable to join in.

Good question Keith! I suspect it is possible with screen capture software. But maybe the critical question isn't so much whether or not its possible, as much as whether or not the big ol' dummy Pat can figure out how to do it. wink

I'll look into it... If I can figure it out, we'll go from there.

thanks Mike! That's a good head start!

I'm also looking at Camtasia, but its kind of pricey... the upshot is that I could use it for other things too.

I already have SNAGIT... it can capture the screen, but I'm not sure it can capture the audio too... maybe the audio can be captured separately with Audacity and merged

But I may also try a digital camcorder set to receive its signal from the computer. That's already paid for.... (cheap route first...)


So many ideas, so little money...

I used Camtasia back around 1999-2000. One of the nice things that old version had that I liked is it could render a Shockwave video of the recording that would set up nice as a web page video. I had used it a lot for video tutorials as it shows circles on the screen when you make mouse clicks.

I'm sure by now that it does a lot more cool stuff.

Here is an idea of what I am trying to get the Surface to support. This all works fine on my Desktop DAW for recording (Reaper allows going to a whole new level) and I have had bits of success running it on my laptop for live shows. However the Surface will present "new opportunities for having fun" with BIAB and VLT.

Those old timers here will remember that we have worked a lot with BIAB and VLT over the years. Much of what I have achieved could not have been done without your help and inputs. Maybe this will help get some of the new guys moving in even newer directions.

BIAB and the TC-Helicon Voice Live Touch

By the way, this is Camtasia.

Dan,
that is an awesome demo! Have you posted it in the user to user video section yet? If not, you definitely should!

I liked your other user-to-user video:

PG Music News
Article: The History of Play-A-Long (and More)

We came across this JazzTimes article, published today, called The History of Play-A-Long (and More), which highlights how technology has "blown the options for interaction music education wide open" in the last 50 years - and they mention Band-in-a-Box®!

Check it out! Click here to read...

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.

The Download Manager - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

The "Download Manager" within Band-in-a-Box® for Windows is a great tool to confirm or help with the installation of your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows program!

What does the Download Manager do?
Automatically installs Band-in-a-Box® content (RealTracks, RealDrums, etc.) in the background, so you don't have to sit there the whole time! It can also confirm that you've completely installed your purchase.

How do you use it?
Within the program, go to Help | Utilities | Run Download/Install Manager now. Using your activation code, the program will analyze the installation folders, and list anything that still needs to be downloaded and installed.

Learn more about the Download Manager with this tutorial, or check out the topic within the Online Manual.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Online Manual - Chord List & Shortcuts

Visit the Chord List of our Online Manual, and you'll see all the chords that can be used within the program! The list includes a few Tricky Chords and Shortcut Chords that you may find useful too!

Tricky Chords:
C5b This is "C flat 5." It is spelled this way to avoid confusion.
C2, C5, C4, C69, C7alt, Cm7#5
You can type C-7 for Cm7 (i.e. use the minus sign) or C7-9 for C7b9.

Shortcut Chords
If you enter a lot of songs, you will appreciate these shortcut keys.
J = Maj7
H = m7b5 (H stands for Half diminished)
D = dim
S = 7sus

There's even information on how to add your own chord shortcuts - check it out!

Video Request Answered - Creating Intros, Bridges, and Endings in Band-in-a-Box®

Check out the newest support video created by Kent that explains how to create intros, bridges, and endings in Band-in-a-Box®! Click here to view...

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker Feature

If you have a folder of songs that you'd always like easy access to within Band-in-a-Box, make sure you familiarize yourself with The SongPicker feature, which access the folder that you choose and lock it to!

Access the SongPicker by clicking on the [Song] button next to the title of the song within the main screen of Band-in-a-Box. The first time the SongPicker is opened, you can choose the folder to use to create the list by selecting [Change] and navigating to your preferred directory. Once chosen, select [OK - Make Song List], and Band-in-a-Box does the rest... the next time you click on [Song], you'll be taken directly to your preferred folder!
