This series will follow my creating an original song in biab, then using real band, and finally into reaper for mixing and mastering- perhaps using sound forge for the mastering stage too. This is the first installment. Hopefully it's interesting enough that people will want to see the next parts. I'm pretty new at this video stuff. Audio is so easy compared to video. I've learned some stuff about my screen recordings and they will be better in the following installments. This is a lot of extra work thrown onto just creating a song, but I find it to be really fun and hopefully people will find it interesting enough to check in and follow along. We'll see!

Hi Dan,

Very very instructive.
I appreciate the time and effort that you have put into this project.

I particularly liked how you added shots and holds along with part markers at the end of your chart.
I (for one) never thought about doing that but I will now

Can't wait until the RealBand section and also the Reaper part comes into fruition.

Well done.

Best regards
George

Good Job! Anything to proselytize these products is a positive.

Love it Dan. Cool "sizzle" cooking the charts. Great tip on generating the extra drum fills - never thought of doing it that way. I'm looking forward to the next episode!

Excellent, always fun to see how others work with our favorite programs. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you're enjoying this! I'm working on part one of the real band chapter. Two parts will be needed to cover it. Stay tuned- it should be up soon. I suppose if you subscribe to my channel you'll be notified when new chapters are up. This is really fun and I'm glad there's at least some interest. Thanks all!

Enjoyed the video -- looking forward to the real band thing. I don't really use RB at the moment.

Chicago to India eh? I'll report in next week from Europe. I have the tickets now. And the visa charges to prove it. I hope India is fun, I hope to go in 2014, and I also hope to wake up tomorrow. Ha.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
