Hi Fred,

thanks a lot for listening and your most kind comments.

Exactly. That's how the thing works. The words are sung on one note and get tuned via midi.

Hi Alyn,

thanks a lot for listening and your most kind comments.

"I then wondered what they would sound like together in one tune!"
I tried that, too. But it would have been too much to publish that.

I do hope you have another inventive and productive year!
Same to you.

Hi Pat,

thanks a lot for listening and your most kind comments.

Dare you! Like Charlie said, that would be very disappointing not to have your insight on forum songs because of SC issues.

The new one reminds me of the way a human voice sounds with the Cher effect applied.

See my answer to Fred.

Happy New Year.

Guenter,
It's always a tutorial listening to and examining your compositions. I find vocaloids interesting but somewhat intimidating. I guess I felt the same way when I first saw a Moog synthesizer.
I really like the underlying melody and accompaniment.

Hi SD,

thanks for your kind words.
Why aren't you afraid of BiaB?
Isn't it kind of an instrumental vocaloid? Let's see what's coming next.

Hi, Guenter.

SoundCloud is finally working for me again. I sent it a number of emails, but so far only saw automated replies. I'm hoping it stays working.

The song is a fun mix, although I kept feeling the need to clear my throat of phlegm when the vocals would glitch. wink

Ha! Noting that Vocaloids often sound better in a languages I don't know (because I'm listening for different features), I've been tempted to put together a song using nonsense words with Avanna. There's a new Vocaloid called Ruby that should be coming out Real Soon Now that's got a much more aggressive voice than Avanna. I don't think she'll be my cup of tea, but possibly a good match for you! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very interesting, and very "pleasing to the ears". Thanks Guenter.
It reminded me a little of when I watched Cleo Laine and Johhny Dankworth at the Stables in my youth.

I like both versions but I think the Avanna version is more suited to the style of song.
I must look into Vocaloid and Harmor. Does the latter work with any DAW or just FL?

Best wishes,
Rec

Hi Joanne, Dani and Rec,

thanks a lot for taking the time to listen and comment.

@Dani: Qui vivra, verra.

@Rec: Harmor is a VSTi and works in any environment.

#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!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing
RealTracks Set 17: Bossa
RealTracks Set 19: Jazz Ballad

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
