Wim

Hi all,

After my new laptop has stolen me nearly 3 months of my precious time I finally managed to get my music programs working.
So here is my latest piece: the song of my 9 months old grandson Wim.
As “Piet” has already achieved more than 1.600 listens I hope you will like “Wim”, too.
RTs used:
RT464_Bass, Acoustic, Bossa Ev 140
RT1209_Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladGonzalo Sw 11
RT470_Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Bossa Ev 140
RT890_Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accompaniment PopLite Ev 140
RT706_Guitar, Electric, Soloist Bossa Ev 140
RealDrums-CountryEven8

Enjoy.

Hi Guenter
This is AWESOME! I love it and what a great tribute to your grandson. I hope it will be played at his wedding!
Sorry to hear about your computer. I had the same problem and since then I have had endless computer problems! It take so much time to sort out. Great tune.

I've been waiting for this ever since you totally blew me away with PIET's song!
And it looks like you've managed to duplicate the magic!

I laughed out loud at the coughs!

I like the syncopation of his jabber too
my favorite line was : "Ah laaaa (aaaaaah!)"

Guenter, you are beyond any shadow of any doubt the "outside the box creative genius" of the forum! Thanks for sharing your ideas and creations with us!


edit: the sheer number of hits your songs get serves as a testimony to the fact that your music resonates with a large number of people. And in any of the arts, the ability to connect with an audience is a key determinant of success.


Edited by Pat Marr (11/27/14 05:37 AM)
Edit Reason: wasn't finished saying how awesome the song is

Guenter, What a great gift to give your grandson. Coughing and rapping. Just brilliant. This is so enjoyable. If you don't like this there is something seriously wrong with you. Great stuff. Tom

Hi Guenter,

Quite some talent, your grandson!
So cute, LOL.
Apart from the fact that it is very funny, it must have been a lot of work to get Wim's "lyrics" at the right place!
Good work!

I seem to be following Tom around and agreeing with everything he says...

Guenter, this is, in fact, BRILLIANT. You are a real talent. Wim, too - that goes without saying...

The whole family was here for our Thanksgiving dinner. I brought them all (15 people) in to listen (to "Piet" also). You and Wim and Piet are stars in Tampa.

Stunning. Spectacular. Sensational. Super.

The only thing is that your grandson can sing better than me cool

This is a keeper!

PG Music News
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

Live Interview Today at 1pm PST - Aaron Short & PG Music's Tobin!

Check out Aaron Short's YouTube Channel today at 1pm PST for a LIVE interview with PG Music's Tobin!

Aaron's interview with Tobin is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative - it's a great opportunity to learn a little bit about the history of Band-in-a-Box!

We hope you can check it out! Click here for Aaron's YouTube Channel.

If not, don't worry - it will be available for viewing on his channel after the live event.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
