#310542 - 09/16/15 03:09 AM [Band-in-a-Box Wishlist] Count In settings should be Local (to each song), not Global to the entire system

Currently, the Song Count-In is a Global setting, not Local to any particular song. This means that you either always have a Count-In for every song, or never have a Count-In. You cannot turn the Count-In 'off' for just one song.

This setting would be greatly improved if it was moved from Global Preferences to Individual Song Settings.

Songs with multiple time signatures, songs that have a refrain at the beginning, songs that begin with a background instrumental, and many others would benefit from this approach.

I hope many users would see the benefit of the count-in as being settable on a song-by-song basis (with a default preference of course) rather than all or nothing.

Big +1. Especially being able to save one song using the style drum pattern and a different song using a traditional click click count-in and a different song using no lead-in at all.

Totally agree. this is our bands number 1 priority.

and why i am on this subject does anyone know why the intro volume is louder than the real tracks backing in some of my songs? its driving me mad. surely the intro should use the same volume as the song or maybe quieter but certainly not louder.

Presumably when you state 'intro' you are referring to 'count-in'?

yes I am referring to count-in. It would seem that this particular style, C_EAGLE2.STY Contemporary Country Eagles-2, has a count-in volume of around 5 decibels higher than the actual rest of the song. this is causing me a real problem.

Lots of positive support for this so it's getting a bump from me. Presumably the team are beavering away on something for 2017, and this ought to be included.
Any other bumps?

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
