Hello there!

I'm a new (Jan '14) owner of Band In A Box, and I've been lurking here for the last couple of months learning and seeking answers. I'd like to thank you all for being so helpful even though this is our first communication. The search function has been my good friend as of late. smile

"Fuzzy Cat" is my second ever Band In A Box creation. It uses a style called "J!TRAD.STY". BB substituted Real Drums in and I replaced the banjo track with a Real Track called "Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Freddie Sw 140". These are the only BB parts I used. The rest of the parts were played on my EWIUSB using a VST called WIVI Band.

Fuzzy Cat

Thanks for listening, and nice to meet you all.
Dan

Dan,

Welcome.

What a fun song, very enjoyable. I used to regularily go to a Jazz club in Putney, South London UK that had the greats playing music like this, Your playing would have fitted in perfectly with that band.
I am dancing like Baloo the bear to this.

2nd song eh cool
I look forward to more.

Alyn

Hi Dan,

You must be a very very experienced man at playing trad jazz. This is AWESOME+ !!!!! The melodies and the counter-melodies you weave throughout the mix show some gold-medal musicianship.

I don't remember hearing this standard of trad jazz on the forum before. All I can say is ...



Welcome aboard!
Noel

Hello everyone!

I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcomes. Thanks also for having a listen and leaving a comment. Your time and input is much appreciated. smile

I also forgot to mention in my original post that the mixing and MIDI recording was done in Reaper. I was very surprised and pleased when I found out I could drag tracks straight from Band In A Box into Reaper. An awesome capability, indeed.


Thanks for listening,
Dan

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.
