Just looking at the new BiaB 2015 and came up with this. It uses a progression that has a IV chord followed by a iv6 chord and makes for and interesting combination. This progression is said to be used quite often in popular Seasonal songs. So, I thought I would see how it sounded.

I posted it using the soundcloud render process in BiaB. It shows the file is still being processed on SoundCloud so let me know if you can hear it or not.

I hear it, and I like it! Pretty tune. The string quartet with the sax is somewhat unconventional but I think it works. Thanks for posting. Take care. Greg

Enjoyed listening to it as well as "Getting Away To Our Home Town.". Interesting instrument combinations in both tunes.

By the way Richard, I noticed you are a long time forum member but these are the first tunes I've heard. I hope you post more!

Hi Rich,
I could easily put this music on late at night. It gives me a comfy feeling. Smooth !!!
I like"Getting Away To Our Home Town" even more.
Hope to hear more of you in 2015.

I have done a lot of writing but not always in BiaB. Much is done in Finale using GPO and JaBB then developed in Sonar X3. I will post more of my BiaB work this year as I want to learn the program a bit more and see what its potential is for compositional work.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! smile

Hi Rich,

Nice work! That was an enjoyable listen. Welcome to the Users Showcase forum (at least I don't recall seeing you in this neck of the woods before) smile

All the best for 2015,
Noel

I can hear it! smile

SoundCloud has been misbehaving for me for the last week or so - I've had times when I couldn't upload, and couldn't listen to other people's sounds. I assume they are having server issues, because it's not my computer (I've tried multiple), and it's hit and miss - sometimes one person's music will play, and another won't.

Thanks for posting!

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

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.
